2023 Comprehensive Plan
Throughout 2023, the City of Genoa underwent a process to update the 2003 Comprehensive Plan with consultants from both Northern Illinois University and Egret and Ox Planning.
The City of Genoa’s Comprehensive Planning Task Force of over 20 community members met with the Northern Illinois Center for Governmental Studies to draft a Comprehensive Plan for the community. The Task Force reviewed resident survey data from both the online portal and over 400 resident surveys submitted, determined a vision statement, and established goals and objectives to guide the City. The Comprehensive Plan document reviews survey and demographic data, lists goals and objectives, establishes a city plan that provides recommendations on improvements to transportation, open space, utilities, and housing and economic development, and outlines an implementation plan to achieve goals created by the Community.
The Plan Commission unanimously recommended approval of the Comprehensive Plan, following a Public Hearing, on December 19, 2023 with final City Council approval on January 3, 2024.
