The Plan Commission conducts public hearings and makes recommendations on all land use petitions filed with the village which, by state statute, require said hearings. Petitions are carefully considered thoroughly and detailed testimony is considered. Reviews zoning and subdivision regulations for conformance with the Comprehensive Plan and recommends updates when necessary.

The Plan Commission holds public hearings for:

  • Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan
  • Special Uses
  • Planned Unit Developments
  • Annexations
  • Subdivisions
  • Text Amendments
  • Other Land Use Issues

The Plan Commission is a recommending body to the Board of Trustees. When considering a request, the Plan Commission considers its standards, the Comprehensive Plan, the petitioner’s proposal and public input, and makes a recommendation to the Board of Trustees. The Board considers the Plan Commission’s recommendation and makes a final decision.
