From Yorkville to Sugar Grove
A Context Sensitive Solutions Project



A key part of our study process will be the creation of a Community Advisory Group. The Group will:

  • Ensure that the opinions of the broader community are shared with the IDOT project team.
  • Ensure that information developed by the project team is distributed throughout the community.
  • Help to identify and evaluate transportation improvements.
  • Generate interest and knowledge among the general public about the IL 47 study.

In carrying out these functions, the CAG will play an important role in defining the area’s important features, identifying highway preferences, and recognizing potential highway impacts.


Advisory Group members will be expected to carry out the following responsibilities:

  • Attend each CAG meeting and participate in Group discussion and activities.
  • Participate openly and honestly, respecting the opinions of other Group members.
  • Represent their organization, constituency, or broader community interests.

Membership on the CAG is an important job, but we also expect it to be an educational, rewarding experience for all involved.


It is important that the CAG be both representative of all the varied interests that exist within the project study area while being small enough to allow the detailed level of discussion and activities needed to accommodate meaningful interaction. Membership includes representatives from the following kinds of groups:

  • Local and county government
  • Area communities
  • Agricultural interests
  • Environmental groups
  • Business organizations
  • Bicycling interests
  • Interested Citizens
