SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS USING THE WEB-BASED INTERACTION TOOLS!
There are multiple web-based opportunities to share your thoughts and ideas regarding the Village of Long Grove. What do you like about Long Grove? What would you change? What would you like to see in Long Grove in the future? Please click the Interact tab in the menu above or the quick links on the sidebar to provide feedback on Long Grove.

Here are the different ways to interact:

Village Commenting Site
The Village of Long Grove has made available an online commenting site for all residents and stakeholders to use to provide comments relating to the Village. While the commenting site is not specific to the Comprehensive Plan Update project, the Village will keep track of any comments that relate specifically to the Comprehensive Plan so that your thoughts, ideas, and concerns are heard and integrated into the plan-making process where appropriate.

Idea Zone
This web-based form enables you to provide a comment or idea on whatever is on your mind. If imagery supports your feedback, please be sure to include a photo or image using the ‘upload’ feature. Photos might be of an existing in-town condition or perhaps a snapshot of something in another community you’d like emulated in Long Grove. Comments that we receive will be posted on the Idea Zone page, so we invite you to check back periodically. You will want to see what your neighbors and friends are saying!

Business Development Survey
As a follow-up to the Village’s recent community-wide survey, the Business Development Survey will dive deeper into business development perceptions, preferences, and aspirations. All members of the Long Grove community will have the opportunity to inform the planning process regarding commercial uses and economic development in the Village.

Community Mapping Tool
An interactive map of the Village will provide the opportunity to use drag-and-drop icons to note certain ideas relating to specific places on the map. By using the icons and adding comments, users will be able to help identify issues and opportunities that they believe should be addressed in the Comprehensive Plan. Photos may also be uploaded to support comments. All comments will be shown on the map, so you will be able to view the thoughts, ideas, and concerns from others.
