What is a Comprehensive Plan?

A Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint to guide the Village for the next 20 years. The Comprehensive Plan will establish a vision for the Huntley community and define policies that will direct future growth and development and improve overall quality of life for current and future residents. The Comprehensive Plan will identify strategies that will assist Village leaders in making substantive and thoughtful decisions for the community.

What are the contents of a Comprehensive Plan?
Huntley’s Comprehensive Plan will outline the existing conditions of the Village, describe future goals and objectives for development, and establish an action plan for how to achieve the community’s vision for the future. The Village of Huntley Comprehensive Plan will address the following:
•    Land Use and Development;
•    Housing and Neighborhoods;
•    Urban Design and Community Character;
•    Economic Development; 
•    Parks, Open Space, and Environmental Features;
•    Transportation  and Infrastructure

The Comprehensive Plan will also include focused planning efforts to address potential developments in four sub-areas of the Village: IL 47/I-90 Interchange Area-South Quadrants; IL 47 Commercial Corridor South; Northwestern Hospital Campus; and IL 47/Algonquin Road – Northwest Quadrant.

Who is involved in creating the Comprehensive Plan?
The Village of Huntley hopes to see all those living and doing business in the Village involved in Comprehensive Plan activities. As the long-term policy guide for the Village, it is critical that all of the Village’s stakeholders are involved in the development of the Comprehensive Plan. The Village is committed to involving residents, businesses, and employees in the process in order to craft a community vision for the future. Draft components of the Comprehensive Plan will be presented to the public, and will be reviewed by the Plan Commission with the Village Board of Trustees reviewing the final draft prior to adoption.

How can I follow the process?
A dedicated project website has been created. This website includes announcements about upcoming workshops and public meetings, and provides access to a online questionnaire, and an interactive mapping tool. The website also includes copies of meeting materials, outreach summaries, and draft plan content. 

We already have other plans. What will happen to those?
Existing plans will inform the development of the Comprehensive Plan, and may in some cases, be incorporated into the plan if their goals and vision are still consistent with the community’s aspirations.

When will the Plan start and when will it be completed?
The initial phases of the Plan are underway, with the anticipated adoption by early 2024.
