citizen driven planning process


My former employer is in the middle of a huge citizen driven regional planning process - the first of its kind in this area. The main website is www.nipc.cog.il.us - use the link to Common Ground to get more info about the process. We used a town hall meeting with keypad polling, sub-regional workgroups, and an interactive website to solict input. They are in the second year of a four year process to update the comprehensive plan - which hadn't been done in 20 years.
