You Can Help Plan for Cook County’s Future


1It takes a village to create a community where people can live and thrive. Cook County is no exception. With this in mind, Cook County is seeking residential input as they prepare a newly updated Policy Roadmap for the county. Community meetings were held in April and May, to begin gathering feedback, now there’s an online survey available to help ensure your voice gets heard.

The new Policy Roadmap will review important aspects of community life such as Health, Safety, Sustainability, Technology and Transportation. The online survey focuses on learning what you think the top priorities for the County should be, what’s going well and what needs to change. 

This survey and the plans to update the Policy Roadmap are coming at an excellent time, as big changes are already on the horizon for Cook County. Recent announcements made by the County include a $132 million grant to improve current rail congestion issues across the region, and details on the recently passed County budget.

While these are important aspects for the County as a whole, the survey is aiming to ensure all voices are heard, whether you live in an urban area or more rural, and whether you commute to work or not; the goal is to hear from as many people as possible to get a solid, big picture view of what’s important to Cook County residents; and I want to encourage you to complete it. 

A draft of the new Policy Roadmap will be posted by the end of this summer for all Cook County residents to review and comment on as well.
