In September 2013 the Vermillion Planning Commission began the process to update Vermillion’s Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a significant land use policy document that creates a road map for the future development and growth of Vermillion. In any public planning process, it is essential to gather the input of community investors, or stakeholders - citizens, businesses, public and private organizations, service clubs and other employers.
The Planning Commission will be holding a series of meetings in the coming weeks and we invite you, the stakeholders, to be a part of the discussion.
