The Community Development Department handles building permits and inspections, as well as all land use matters in order to achieve orderly development of the community. Almost all development in the Village comes through the Community Development Department. The Department administers and enforces the Zoning Ordinance, Comprehensive Plan, Subdivision Code, and Building Codes. The Department is responsible for providing staff assistance to and coordinating the work of a number of citizen volunteer commissions including the Plan Commission, the Board of Zoning Appeals, the Appearance Review Commission and the Village Center Development Commission. In addition, staff coordinates efforts for various task forces, including the Residential Redevelopment Review Task Force and the Streetscape Task Force. The department is separated into two divisions, Building and Planning, that facilitate the department's mission and primary tasks.
