Village of Winnetka
Regular meetings of the Plan Commission (PC) take place on the fourth Wednesday of every month. All meetings are held at Village Hall and start at 7:00 p.m.
The PC consists of thirteen Winnetka residents appointed by the Village President with the advice and consent of the Village Trustees. The Village President also designates one member of the Commission to serve as chairperson. Members of the Plan Commission serve for terms of three years, which are staggered to assure the Commission’s continuity.
The PC’s membership consists of one representative from each of the following public bodies: Village Council, Zoning Board of Appeals, Business Community Development Commission, Environmental and Forestry Commission, Landmark Preservation Commission, Board of Park Commissioners of the Winnetka Park District, Board of Education of School District No. 36, and Board of Trustees of the Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District.
The remaining five members of the Plan Commission are chosen from among the Village’s residents. There are no other specific requirements for membership, although it has been the practice of Village Presidents to appoint at-large members based on a demonstrated expertise, experience or interest in historic preservation, architecture, architectural history, urban planning, building construction, real estate, finance, engineering or neighborhood organization.
All Commission members vote, with two exceptions. Since most matters that come before the Plan Commission ultimately come before the Village Council for final action, the Village Trustee is not a voting member of the Plan Commission. Similarly, if any matter before the Plan Commission is a zoning application that will also be considered by the ZBA, the ZBA representative is not allowed to vote on the matter when it is before the PC.
