Champaign Tomorrow – 2040

The Comprehensive Plan establishes a vision for how the community wants to grow and develop over the next 20 years. It is a guide for all residents, property owners, developers and decision makers as to the anticipated use of property in the future and the key trends, challenges and opportunities impacting life in Champaign.  The current Plan, adopted in 2011, reflects the realities of the post-2008 National Recession era.  Priorities include the need to develop Champaign in a compact and contiguous way, to build infrastructure in a sustainable and complete manner, and to ensure that neighborhoods have proximity to parks, schools and frequently accessed commercial services.  Reviews and discussions with City Council and Plan Commission have determined that the vision outlined in the current Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2011, remains strong.

To effectively realize the vision of the Champaign Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan in 2040, analyzing existing conditions helps identify emerging trends and issues in need of consideration.  Existing conditions analyses of residential growth, commercial and employment land use and demographic information are found below.  Please share your feedback on the information by participating in a short survey.  Your responses will be used to draft improvements to the Guiding Principles and Key Recommendations in the updated Plan.  Thank you for participating!
