TO:                The Residents of Barrington Hills

FROM:          Pamela Cools, Chairwoman, Plan Commission

DATE:           June 17, 2019

SUBJECT:     Comprehensive Plan – Draft


The document that follows is the culmination of months of work by the Plan Commission of Barrington Hills.  The Commission approached the document, not with the goal of reinventing it, but to reorganize the document to make it simpler to read and easier to use.  This streamlined, modern document will act as a reference for Village Officials, staff and residents, as well as for the greater Barrington community.  

A comprehensive plan represents a community’s vision to guide growth and to help a municipality make decisions regarding future development and redevelopment.  The plan helps to set standards regarding land use, infrastructure, transportation, parks and recreation, and community services and facilities. It acts as a blueprint for the future and identifies community values and priorities.

In an effort to begin getting feedback as the document moves towards its final form, the document as presented for the public hearing and thus attached is for content. The final document will be formatted differently and include more or different photos and images highlighting our community.

The Plan Commission hopes that you will review the document and submit comments to clerk@vbhil.gov or at the public hearing scheduled for July 8, 2019.
