Community Development

The Community Development Department is responsible for administering zoning and building codes to ensure orderly development and redevelopment within the Village. The Community Development Department is divided into two divisions: Planning and Building, and Safety. The Planning Division reviews existing and proposed residential and economic projects to ensure consistency with overall development goals and interests of Village residents and business owners.

Additionally, the Building and Safety Division staff reviews plans, issues permits, and performs the necessary building inspections to adhere to proper construction and design codes. The department is further responsible for health, multi-family housing, and property maintenance inspections to protect the well being of its residents, visitors, and business owners.
