Zoning is responsible for the administration of the Village Zoning Ordinance which governs how property can and cannot be used in certain geographic areas. Zoning controls the development of land while ensuring public satisfaction with issuance of permits and the enforcement of the zoning ordinance.

Site Plan Review

A Site Plan Review is required for every commercial, industrial, institutional, and multi-family (three or more units) project in the Village prior to issuance of a building permit or development activity. The Site Plan Review process helps ensure newly developed properties, expanded structures or redeveloped properties take into account public safety, traffic, overcrowding, and environmental problems are minimized.
