The Green Bay Road Corridor Transportation and Streetscape Plan process provided several great opportunities for residents to communicate what they believe to be the strengths and weaknesses of the community, and to prioritize what issues are most important for the Village to address in the near term and in the future. The planning process was designed to promote community involvement and encourage citizen participation. Community outreach was included throughout the entire planning process. The Village knows that the long-term success of implementing this plan will depend on engaging our community, and appreciates all the hours given by residents, the Project Steering Committee, Plan Commission, Village Board, and other stakeholders.
