What's Next, Naperville?
In February 2021, the City began work on a strategic plan to identify its vision for the future and priorities essential to achieving it.
The public involvement phase of the project, which ended in August, included a community survey with over 2,700 participants who shared input on strengths and weaknesses of Naperville as well as city services. Additional engagement activities, offered online, gathered feedback from the community on sustainability, public art, community events, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
City staff is now in the process of developing the priorities plan, taking into account public input as well as direction from elected officials and expertise of senior staff. Once adopted, the priorities plan will serve as a touchstone for city operations over the next three years.
The final priorities plan is scheduled to be on the Council agenda on Oct. 19. The public is welcome to comment on the plan when the agenda is published the Wednesday prior to the meeting (Oct. 13).
The City appreciates the contributions of everyone who took the time to participate in this planning process.
