The Village has a history of successful intergovernmental cooperation. This is no small achievement. Besides coordinating land use planning with neighboring communities, the Village has partnered with Lake County, Ela Township, and communities bordering U. S. Route 12 (Rand Road). This group is referred to collectively as the Route 12 Corridor Planning Council (CPC).
The guidelines developed by this council are used in the design review processes for all projects adjacent to Route 12 within the Route 12 Corridor Planning Council’s area.
