Blue Ribbon Commission

Background

As part of the Village of Gurnee's 2015 Strategic Planning Process, the Village hosted community engagement sessions in August to solicit feedback from residents and stakeholders on top priorities in Gurnee. During the process, a prevailing issue that was mentioned was that residents desired increased walkability in the community. The suggestions were included in the final draft of the strategic plan, which can be found here
