Project Webpages Promote Development Transparency

Development Map Cetron Place

Last year, the City created an interactive Development Map in response to residents seeking more advanced notice about potential projects in their neighborhood. With the map proving popular, the City has taken the initiative to promote even greater transparency to the Geneva community.

The interactive map continues to provide a basic overview of proposed residential, commercial and industrial development applications submitted to the City requiring a public hearing. For those seeking more comprehensive details, proposals now include a link with “more information” taking website visitors to new individual development project pages. The webpages will house documents including:

•    Project scope;
•    Architectural renderings;
•    Engineering and landscaping plans; and
•    Community Development Department contact information

The map and project pages will be updated as a submitted application moves through the development review process starting with City staff; followed by the advisory board public hearing and concluding with the Geneva City Council.

Project plans also are posted in the City’s online “Agenda Center” a few days prior to meetings, which are open to the public, broadcast on Geneva Broadcast Network and available to watch On Demand on the City’s YouTube channel.

The map can be found on the City’s website. People also can subscribe to receive Development Project Map updates by clicking the “Notify Me” button.

The City takes pride in the Development Project Map enhancements, which exemplifies Geneva’s commitment to be an open and transparent government.
