It is through planning and zoning that communities are shaped and guided in an orderly way. Planning ties together the Village's growth with the goal of helping create a healthy, well developed community. The Planning Division reviews and analyzes all land development plans for the Village including subdivisions, special uses, annexations, re-zonings and planned unit developments. Planning staff members work with the public, including residents and developers, to help them understand the development process and the zoning rights associated with a specific parcel of land.
Planning staff members engage in long-range planning, including reviewing and updating the Comprehensive Plan.
The Planning Division also handles other activities such as:
Actively assisting with issue resolution in the Village Center
Staff liaison to the Appearance Review Commission, Plan Commission, and Village Center Commission
