Over the past three years, Lake Bluff’s Historic Preservation Commission (“HPC”) has engaged in a thorough review and strategic planning process to answer one question: “How can Lake Bluff better preserve and transmit its architectural history?” The HPC believes that updating Lake Bluff’s historic preservation regulations – which provide for the designation and protection of buildings and landscape features with special significance in the history and development of Lake Bluff – is an important step in answering this very question.

In 2017, the Village Board of Trustees unanimously adopted the Village’s 2023 Strategic Plan. The result of months of effort of community volunteers, the plan aims to unite the policy, resources, and stakeholders of the Village in service of the Village’s health and vitality.
