Cicero moves to develop Comprehensive Development Plan
The Town of Cicero held its second public meeting to invite members of the public to offer their ideas and comments on the development of a new comprehensive plan for the development of the Town of Cicero.
The Cicero Comprehensive Plan is a citywide effort to update the Town’s existing comprehensive plan and provide the vision, goals and objectives for guiding the future of the community.
The meeting was held at the Cicero Community Center on March 11. The proposed Comprehensive Plan would explore what should and should not be developed in different areas of the Town, based on community input and leadership suggestions. It would be the first plan of its kind developed for Cicero since 1974 said Cicero Project Manager Craig Pesek.
"A Comprehensive Plan gives the Town direction for the future," Pesek said.
"It highlights areas that need attention, assets of the community, opportunities and helps the Town to focus its resources in the right areas."
Pesek said one of the most important aspects of a successful Comprehensive Plan is "community buy-in."
"A plan is only as good as those who work to implement it and support it..I am very proud of how active the Cicero community has been in this process," Pesek said.
