Welcome Message from Village President Sheena Collum

On behalf of the South Orange Board of Trustees, welcome to the official website of the South Orange Master Plan. To date, we have been working tirelessly to develop a robust communications and outreach strategy with community leaders and volunteers that will deliver the most comprehensive planning document our Village has undertaken since 1978. Over the next several months, known as our “Visioning Phase”, large and small-scale community conversations and forums will be happening, a variety of surveys will be distributed in different forms, stakeholder interviews will be conducted and much more. There is absolutely a seat for everyone at this table. I encourage you to participate in shaping our shared future together and remember – both planning and passion are priceless!
