Zoning

Zoning is a tool for achieving several important goals, including conserving property values, protecting the character and stability of the residential, business and commercial areas, and promoting orderly and beneficial development that supports the goals and objectives of the Village's Comprehensive Plan and recommendations from various business district plans.

Zoning also is intended to protect residents against incompatible uses, and to fix reasonable standards to which buildings and structures should conform. The code is administered by the Zoning Administrator and enforced by the Building & Property Standards Division. The Zoning Administrator also oversees the Village sign code. Questions about either code should be directed to the Zoning Administrator.
