COVID-19 – Restore Illinois Phase 5 Service Adjustments

Given the State has moved to Phase 5 of the Governor’s Restore Illinois Plan, the Community Development Department has returned to near normal operating procedures.    All we ask when interacting with the Community Development staff that you follow all Phase 5 physical distancing  guidance.

The Community Development Department is open to the public from 8:30 AM to 5 PM. You may reach the Community Development office by calling either 847-716-3520 or 847-716-3527 or by email.

Permit Application Submittal

Applications consisting of materials less than 11” x 17” in size may still be submitted via email to the Village. Paper copies may also be submitted.

For applications requiring printed-to-scale large plan sheets, such as those that are 24”x36” or larger, paper copies are required to be submitted.

As prior to the pandemic, paper permit application materials may be delivered to the Village:

  • By Mail, UPS, FedEx, or
  • In person at the Community Development Counter (510 Green Bay Road)


Inspections Associated with Building Permits

The Village is conducting building inspections as we were prior to the start of the pandemic.   If you are unvaccinated for the coronavirus virus, per the CDC recommendations we ask that you wear a mask and maintain a six-foot physical distance from the inspector when the inspector visits your site. 

Please contact the Community Development Department at 847-716-3520 or 847-716-3527 to schedule your inspection.
