At a public meeting held to gather public input for the St. Joseph Comprehensive plan, citizens expressed interest in helping their community grow.
Susan Chavarria of the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission, told those in attendance, that the plan focused on long term goals for land use, economy and resources.
Chavarria said the entire plan has three phases. The first phase is where the CCRPC collects data on existing conditions within the village. This started in August.
The current phase of constructing a vision, goals and objectives will be completed by January. The implementation phase will be completed by April.
At the meeting CCRPC asked those in attendance to answer questions about local government, land use, transportation, the downtown, businesses, resources and a community building.
Those in attendance thought more sidewalks were necessary near schools and wanted to see something done with the old gas station on Rt. 150.
A more detailed report regarding the meeting will be presented to the village board at a future meeting.
