Development of the Skokie Environmental Sustainability Plan (ESP) is on schedule, with a first draft now available for public review/comment. The final plan is scheduled for completion in coming months. 

The ESP will provide implementation support tools as well as prioritize actions and provide metrics for tracking progress. The overarching goal is to create a plan that is authentically sustainable, works toward carbon neutrality and that supports equity and a higher quality of life for all.

In May 2022, environmental consulting firm paleBLUEdot, which has led similar successful projects in numerous communities, began guiding a diverse team through the plan development and public engagement process. Representatives from Village staff/boards and commissions, the Skokie Park District, the Skokie Library, Oakton Community College, community environmental groups/and Skokie businesses are participating, with additional community input from an online survey, several smaller meetings and a community listening session. On September 22, 2022, an open meeting was held at which the draft plan was presented to the Sustainable Environmental Advisory Commission (click here for a meeting video), and on September 29, the draft plan was presented at an open community listening session.
