The Committee of the Whole referred an agenda item to the Village Board which will meet on Tuesday, March 26th at 7:00 PM at the Municipal Center, 21801 Torrence Avenue, Sauk Village to consider adopting the Plan.

The Committee of the Whole acted upon the recommendation of the Zoning Board of Appeals/Plan Commission which met on March 4th. The ZBA/Plan Commission voted 6-0 to recommend passage of the Sauk Village Comprehensive Plan. The motion included amendments that propose a new vision for a conservation development, open space and recreation/lifelong learning center along Torrence Avenue across from the Municipal Center as well as further exhibits and technical support for stormwater management techniques to reduce the risk of flooding in the community.

Special thanks to the Sauk Village residents, local officials and staff as well as the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) who have supported the planning process over the past ten months.
