Village of Chester Comprehensive Plan

CREATING A VISION FOR 2020 AND BEYOND!

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

In essence, a comprehensive plan is an expression of the community’s vision for the future and a strategic map to reach that vision.  Comprehensive planning is an important tool to guide future development of land to ensure a safe, pleasant and economic environment for residential, commercial, industrial and public activities.

Planning can also help:

  • Preserve important natural resources
  • Identify issues, accommodate change and stay ahead of trends
  • Ensure that growth makes the community better, not just bigger
  • Foster sustainable economic development
  • Protect property rights and values
  • Enable other public and private agencies to plan their activities in harmony with the Village’s plans
