What's Envision Evanston 2045?

Envision Evanston 2045 is a year-long, community-driven process that will lead to a new comprehensive plan and zoning code. From land use to racial justice to affordable housing, this initiative aims to reflect a shared vision for the future of Evanston. But, what's a comprehensive plan? What's a zoning code? A comprehensive plan outlines a city's vision for its future and includes goals and strategies to help achieve that vision. Evanston’s current comprehensive plan was approved in 2000. A zoning code is a set of regulations that outline how properties can be used and what can be built where. It is a major tool that helps achieve the vision and goals of the Comprehensive Plan. Evanston’s current zoning code was approved in 1993.
