Planning Division


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
  • Build-out analysis
  • Staff liaison to the Appearance Review Commission, Plan Commission, and Village Center Commission
  • Support for Economic Development Initiatives including maintenance of demographic data and a listing of available commercial properties
  • Support for various task forces
  • Window signage regulations
