Bourbonnais, IL – In the fall of 2019, the Village of Bourbonnais announced its plans to create a dynamic and attractive central core for community gatherings around the Municipal Center and surrounding areas. The vision to create a high-quality, destination-focused center for residents and visitors to utilize for various seasonal functions and events year around is now moving into community outreach phases. With strong emphasis on public input, the Community Campus Plan online survey is now available via the village’s website and Facebook page.
The survey has been developed to provide community members with an initial opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions on what they would like to see as part of future improvements. It should take approximately ten minutes to complete and will be available for two weeks. There will be additional opportunities through open house events and a second online survey to vote on plan concepts derived from these engagements.
“We cannot express enough how important this is for the community to be involved in,” explained Mayor Paul Schore. “The Community Campus Plan is for our residents and visitors. In order to come together more often as a community, we need to know what the community wants. This is one of the opportunities to be a part of enhancing Bourbonnais.”
The Community Campus master planning process is expected to be completed in late May of 2020 with assistance from The Lakota Group – an urban planning and landscape architecture consulting firm. The Plan will focus on key goals of place making, promoting community identity and pride, and fostering economic development.
