Mission Statement

To improve the quality of life of the historically underserved residents of the 4th and 5th Council Districts of Joliet, IL by holistically addressing their needs in the areas of Housing and Commercial Development, Recreation and Education, Employment and Human Services, Small Business Development, Neighborhood
Organizing and Transportation.

Description

In 2006 Joliet Area community leaders, eager to increase the pace of neighborhood improvement, formed the Quality of Life (QOL) Task Force. The QOL Task Force and the City of Joliet administration agreed to carry out a community-based planning process with a team of consultants in order to create a holistic plan for improving the lives of Joliet Area residents in District's 4 & 5. The Plan would take an integrated approach to quality of life improvements in regard to housing , recreation ,
transportation , economic and retail
development , industrial development and
employment, public infrastructure and
land use, education, and human capital
issues that encompassed health care, crime
prevention, and the needs of youth and the
elderly. The Plan would lay out a strategy
for leveraging the Planning Area’s assets to
overcome its problems through a series of
proposals for action, on three-year and ten-
year time horizons.
