Zoning, Subdivision & Special Approvals

The current Zoning Ordinance establishes standards which control the development and use of land in a way which promotes community welfare and protects the health and safety of residents.

The Village is divided into a series of districts which control the use of property and the standards for development; including five single-family residential districts, two multiple family residential districts, two commercial zoning districts, and one industrial district. Each zoning district is identified in the Village’s official Zoning Map (PDF).

You may also contact the Community Development Department at 847-716-3527 to determine the zoning classification of a property.
