Helpful Information / Construction Guidelines

Planning and Zoning Board (PZB)-

This Community oriented Board consists of 7 members who are appointed by the Mayor with approval of the Board of Trustees. One member is appointed Chairperson on a yearly basis, and members are appointed for a period of 5 years.

The Board meets as needed at Village Hall for the purpose of hearing applications for variations to existing Building Codes and Ordinances adopted by the Village, requests for annexations to the Village, developments of new sub divisions, changes to existing Ordinances and Zoning requirements.

The Board hears each application presented, pros and cons, takes a vote and then makes the recommendation to the Village Board which makes the final decision. The Village Board may change the Planning & Zoning Board's recommendation with a two-thirds majority vote. The PZB will also recommend, maintain and implement the Village's Comprehensive Plan.
