The Village of Metamora is asking residents and business owners to participate in planning for the village’s future. Surveys are now available for residents and business owners to provide their thoughts and ideas on how Metamora can become an even better community in the future. The surveys are part of the process to develop a new village comprehensive plan. Metamora is working with the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission on this planning process, which will establish goals for village improvement and provide a framework for future growth. The resident survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/metamora, and paper copies are available at village hall, MTCO, Snyder Village, Heartland Bank, Commerce Bank, Historic Grounds, Jim Maloof Realtor and Edward Jones. The business survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/metamorabusiness, and paper copies are available at village hall. Paper copies of both surveys can be returned to Village Hall. Submit completed surveys online or in paper form by March 3 to ensure they are counted. The comprehensive plan will address issues like economic development, infrastructure, and future land use and will outline goals and actions for community improvement. The process to develop the plan is being led by a committee that consists of residents, business leaders, and village officials. The needs and concerns of residents and business owners are being sought so that the comprehensive plan can address the village’s most important issues. Residents and business owners that live in the village or in the unincorporated area within 1.5 miles of the village are invited to complete and submit the appropriate survey. For more information about the surveys or the comprehensive plan process, please contact Nick Hayward of Tri-County Regional Planning Commission at 673-9330 or email@example.com.
