Public invited to workshop

Champaign County Regional Planning Commission, in coordination with the Village of St. Joseph, will hold a Public Workshop on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in St. Joseph.  

The workshop will include opportunities for residents to provide input on specific topics such as land use, transportation, downtown redevelopment, recreation, environment, and what makes a healthy community.  Youth aged 5 and older are invited to attend with their parents; activities will be provided for them to share their ideas as well.  

This workshop will be the principal opportunity for residents to share and discuss their ideas during the planning process.
The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to guide the quality, timing, and intensity of growth in a manner that is consistent with the goals of the Village.  

The plan is used by the Village, but is also a source of civic inspiration and reference affecting public and private investments throughout the community.  It is comprehensive because it includes a broad range of topics and organizes them as a unified direction for the future.  The plan provides enough focus to facilitate results, while being flexible enough to adjust to changing conditions.

Please visit the project website,, for more information on the planning process and to learn more ways residents can provide their input.
For questions and/or more information contact Susan Chavarria, Regional Planning Manager with the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission, at 217-328-3313 or via email at
