The Village of Beecher partnered with Teska Associates, Inc. to update Beecher’s Comprehensive Plan. The project was funded primarily by a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). A Comprehensive Plan is a tool for planning the future growth of a community. This plan considered a variety of trends, projects, and needs to understand the evolution of Beecher and determine the goals and aspirations of those invested in the community. Now complete, the plan will be referenced when making decisions on new developments.
Successful plans are community-driven, and the planning process aimed to incorporate as many opportunities and means of gathering ideas and feedback as possible. See Chapter 2 of the Beecher 2040 Comprehensive Plan to learn more about community engagement.
