Downtown Lisle Master Plan

On Thursday evening, December 14, approximately 40 members of the Lisle community gathered at Village Hall for an Open House to review the latest draft of both of the plans for Downtown Lisle and a more specific one on parking. Village staff and consultants from Houseal Lavigne Associates and the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) were available to speak about the draft plans, which will now be reviewed and revised based on final comments and discussions. The final Downtown master plan should be available for review in early 2018. 

The next public meeting is Thursday, January 25th. The Downtown Plan Advisory Committee (DPAC) will meet at Village Hall at 7 PM to review possible alternative building siting and sizes at various Downtown sites. 

As part of the process of adoption, a formal Public Hearing with the Planning and Zoning Commission will be held in the future. Final approval of the Downtown Plan would be made by the Village Board.

Project Overview

On September 20, 2016, the Village of Lisle kicked off the process of creating a new Downtown Lisle Master Plan, which will serve as a blueprint to direct growth, investment and development in the downtown area over the next ten years.  Since the current 1999 Master Plan was created, many Master Plan recommended projects have been completed and downtown conditions have changed.
The Village has engaged the services of planning firm Houseal Lavigne to guide the expected eight-month process to draft a new plan. During this time, extensive public outreach will be conducted to obtain feedback that will help determine “What should Downtown Lisle look like in ten years and what the steps we need to take to get there?"

Concurrently, the Village is also working with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) on a Downtown Parking Study.

To keep the public informed about the process, a new Master Plan website has been created that will review the process, provide updates, access surveys, list a schedule of community meetings and more. All are encouraged to bookmark the page and visit it often to remain current about the Master Plan process.  The Village will also release information on its other communication channels, including social media, newsletters, cable TV and Notify Me. 

Once the new Master Plan has been created, it will be reviewed and final action will be taken by the Planning & Zoning Commission, the Economic Development Commission and finally, the Village Board.
