The North Judson Town Council received a schedule of upcoming dates related to the creation of a comprehensive plan.
As a reminder, a comprehensive plan is one of the requirements to be eligible for OCRA’s Regional Stellar Initiative. North Judson officials are coordinating with the Kankakee Iroquois Regional Planning Commission on the matter.
NJ Clerk-Treasurer Andrew Rowe alerted town council members on Monday that KIRPC provided him with a timeline of important dates related to the process.
He noted that statements of qualification will be received by October 9th and town officials will review the list on the 10th and 11th. Next, they’ll begin interviewing the companies vying for the opportunity to create the town’s comprehensive plan on October 18th and a selection will be made that day or on the 19th.
Rowe added that the goal is to submit the necessary documents to OCRA by November 15th. He reminded them that the town will be obtaining a grant that will assist with the cost. The Town just has to pay $5,000 for the plan and then the remaining $45,000 will be provided.
He said they’re hoping this portion of the Stellar process will be completed by the end of the year.
