Zoning Ordinance Update

September 1, 2022

A new Zoning Ordinance is now in effect. The previous version of the Village’s Zoning Code was written in 1974 and amended countless times, so a comprehensive update of the ordinance was necessary. Shaped by the vision and goals outlined in the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, Downtown Zoning Code, and O’Hare Industrial Plan, the update will help facilitate modern redevelopment that encourages emerging industries, promotes sustainable practices, and revitalizes commercial corridors while respecting existing conditions in the Village.

With feedback from community stakeholders under the guidance and assistance of Camiros, the code also contains features such as well-organized tables and detailed illustrations, diagrams, and definitions to ensure that the ordinance is more user friendly and easier to follow for residents, businesses, and contractors that are working to improve their properties.
