The Community Development - Planning oversees all community planning and zoning activities of the Village. Department staff facilitates and guides development proposals through the review process and coordinates with any other Village departments' approvals. Department services include day-to-day administration of the Municipal Zoning Code, implementation of the 2035 Comprehensive Master Plan, review of site plans, consideration of land subdivisions, rezone requests, conditional uses, variance requests, and zoning compliance permits. The Department also guides property owners on zoning and development issues and researches the planning, zoning, and economic development questions posed by the public. 

The Community Development Department also provides development-related staff support to the Village Board and primary staff support for the Plan Commission, the Community Development Authority, Zoning Public Hearings, and the Zoning Board of Appeals.
