The Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC), the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT), the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant (IISG) all collaborated on a recently released report, “Recommendations for Integrated Water Resources Planning in Lake Zurich.”
The report combines study and information of a wide range of factors in order to provide appropriate recommendations for planning the community’s use of water.
From the Metropolitan Planning Council’s website:
“This report is the culmination of one year of cooperative work, from March 2011 through March 2012, between the Village of Lake Zurich and a project team led by Metropolitan Planning Council in partnership with the Center for Neighborhood Technology, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant. Through MPC’s Community Building Initiative, the team also convened a 13-member task force consisting of volunteer members with expertise in ecology, economics, engineering, law, planning, and utility management, to assist and advise the project team.”
The report not only provides information to water planners and local officials in Lake Zurich, but can be a model for other communities, laying out a variety of factors to consider and ways to meet the needs of customers while planning for the future.
