The Village of Hopkins Park and Pembroke Township are getting support from several groups to develop a "Sustainability Plan" in working toward a healthy community.
An agreement finds all members pledging to work together to develop a plan "providing the ways and means to preserve and sustain the community history, culture, and natural environments in addition to land preservation for current residents and future generations." The plan will focus on enhancing the quality of life and economic growth today and for the future generations.
The committee is chaired by the Kankakee County Regional Planning Commission.
Supporting the concept are representatives of the Economic Alliance of Kankakee County, the Regional Planning Commission, Kankakee County Farm Bureau, Pembroke Township, Pembroke Consolidated School District #259, The Field Museum, The nature Conservancy, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the Village of Hopkins Park
