Planning & Zoning

Planning and zoning's primary responsibility is to support the implementation of the village’s objectives concerning planning and community development. Our staff assists the homeowners, developers, and local businesses to make sure the necessary and proper documents are provided, that notification is made to the property owners in the area of the development, and to provide guidance through the application and hearing process. The required documents are assembled and reports of our findings are prepared for the Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals, who will review the various requests and approve or make recommendations directly to the Village Board.
