This report was prepared in conjunction with the City of Sycamore 2021 Comprehensive Plan Update: https://commons.lib.niu.edu/handle/10843/24303 Information gathered during the comprehensive planning process along with input from Sycamore’s Economic Development Commission (EDC) form the basis of the economic development playbook. Because this report was prepared in conjunction with the comprehensive plan update, the City has a guide to economic growth that is coordinated with its future land use plan. The goals and objectives developed by the EDC are a starting point for the City’s economic growth planning, including identifying specific implementation strategies.
