Every ten years the Village conducts a major review and update of its Comprehensive Plan.  Starting in the spring of 2010, the Village began the update process.  A series of eight neighborhood 2010 Comp Plan Cover meetings took place during the summer of 2010. The neighborhood meetings gave our residents and businesses the opportunity to review the recommendations of the existing Comprehensive Plan, discuss current opportunities and concerns, and make recommendations for future plans in their specific neighborhood and throughout the Village. Following the neighborhood meetings, the Village Plan Commission and staff held several workshops to draft the changes to the document.   On April 25, 2011, the Village Board approved the 2010 Village Comprehensive Plan. 

The overall mission of the 2010 Village of Barrington Comprehensive Plan is to establish policies and implement strategies that will fulfill the consensus vision for the Village.  The vision for Barrington is to preserve the quality of its neighborhoods, the quality of education, and the diversity of leisure time activities.  The community is dedicated to fostering an easily-accessible center of activity for the Barrington area, maintaining a prosperous economic base, protecting its extensive natural resources, and promoting public participation and communication.

Below are the chapters of the 2010 Comprehensive Plan and each of its maps.
