Geneva has partnered with Batavia, North Aurora and St. Charles in preparing a Homes for a Changing Region Housing Plan. The four municipalities comprise an area referred to in the plan as the Central Fox Valley Subregion. During the year-long planning process, national, regional and local trends that shape housing demand and supply were identified, housing needs were defined and strategies were formulated to meet those needs.
The goal of the plan is to create a balanced mix of housing that serves current and future residents across the entire age and income spectrum. The plan includes recommended housing policies and strategies for each municipality, as well as recommendations on how the four municipalities can work together to address housing needs.
Assistance in creating the plan was provided by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, Metropolitan Planning Council, Metropolitan Mayor’s Caucus, and the Kane County Development Department.
