Public Participation

There are numerous opportunities for public comment throughout the NextGrid study process.

To learn about the work of specific Working Groups, please visit those website pages to view meeting agendas, the presentations from each meeting, and meeting summaries. We welcome public comment and feedback on these items; you may send comments directly to each Working Group Leader at the email provided on those Working Group web pages.

The public is also invited to submit white papers, expert research, or general comments to our public portal, by emailing

Additionally, there will be three public meetings throughout the state to allow for questions and comments from stakeholders and the general public. The first public meeting is scheduled to meet in ICC's Main Hearing in Chicago. The other two meetings will be held in Central and Southern Illinois. Details on those meetings will be published on this page once they are confirmed. Please check back to this page for more details.
