Join your fellow neighbors in shaping the future of Deerfield Township through a comprehensive plan update.
Deerfield Township’s comprehensive plan was completed in 2015. While many of the Township’s core values haven’t changed, Becoming Deerfield will update the plan to address current trends and planning issues through projects, policies, and programs that will shape the township’s future.
Process and outreach
A 22-member citizen Steering Committee is helping to guide the public process and the plan’s recommendations. The group is representative of the Township’s many diverse interests. The planning consulting team will facilitate the Steering Committee’s work, convene public workshops, conduct technical work, and draft the plan.
Individuals with specific interests or expertise will be engaged to provide insight during Becoming Deerfield’s process.
Input and feedback
Widespread public involvement is vital to Becoming Deerfield’s success. Three in-person workshops and online tools will offer a variety of ways for the community to give input throughout the process.
Project management and local knowledge
Township staff will support and help to coordinate the work and will also provide local knowledge and expertise to each element of the plan.
The final plan will be formally adopted by the Township Trustees who will have a central role in its implementation.
