Will County and the Will County Center for Economic Development is seeking public input related to the development of the Will County Community Friendly Freight Mobility Plan. The Freight Plan is envisioned as a multimodal freight plan that will provide strategies and goals to guide freight policies, programs, projects and investments throughout Will County in a community-friendly manner. The Freight Plan will encompass a holistic planning approach covering freight mobility, land-use integration, workforce development, education/training and community livability.

County residents and those who work in and visit Will County and its municipalities are invited to learn about the development of the Freight Plan and provide their input related to freight and workforce programs, policies and projects through a series of public open houses and an online survey.

The open houses will occur in the evening on May 16th, 17th and 18th at three locations (see below for details). The same information will be presented at all three open houses. People may attend any time between 5:00 - 7:30 P.M. Details on the public open houses are as follows:

May 16th, 5:00-7:30 P.M.

William E Dugan Training Center

19800 W. South Arsenal Road
