Beginning in the Spring of 2011, the Village underwent a planning process to create a vision for the future of Downtown Northbrook. In February 2012, the Downtown Plan was presented to the Village Board of Trustees. The Plan is based upon input from a public participation process that included involvement of a steering committee consisting of community members, interviews with community leaders and owners of targeted properties, over 1,100 responses to a community survey, a web-based community mapping tool, a web-site driven email tool, and participation of nearly 150 community members in public meetings during a four-day planning charrette in October 2011. The Plan takes the ideas gathered and developed throughout the public participation process and creates a comprehensive plan to guide the future of downtown.
