The Planning Division follows the vision and goals set by the Village’s Comprehensive Plan. As individual developments are proposed, staff reviews them to ensure that they meet the guidelines set forth in the plan. To accomplish this, staff coordinates all aspects of the plan review including land use, engineering, landscaping, legal issues, and economic development.
The Planning Division also serves as staff liaison providing information to the Village Board and Commission. Other responsibilities include updating Village map, maintaining and updating the zoning and subdivision ordinances which set the standards for development in the Village, and assisting the public with various planning and zoning questions.
