The Village of Downers Grove hosted a Kick-Off Celebration to launch the process of creating the Guiding DG Plans in early April. The free and family-friendly celebration featured interactive activities for all ages and interests.

Guiding DG is a combined planning effort that includes the Comprehensive Plan, the Bike and Pedestrian Plan, the Environmental Sustainability Plan, and the Downtown and Fairview Focus Area Streetscape Plan.

It will serve as a roadmap for the Village to direct future growth and development, mobility, sustainability, and streetscapes over the next 20 years. Guiding DG offers a great opportunity for residents, businesses, and workers to communicate their vision for the Village of Downers Grove and identify what issues are most important for the Village to address in the near term and in the future.
