Zoning Code Rewrite Project 2020

In 2013 the Village was awarded a grant from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) to develop a request for proposal (RFP) through’s it’s Technical Assistance Projects program to rewrite the Village’s zoning code.  As a result of this RFP process, the consulting firm Camiros, Ltd was selected to lead the Village’s effort in a complete rewrite of the Village’s original zoning code which was an adoption of the Kane County zoning code when the Village was incorporated in 2007.  

The process created by Camiros to accomplish this project included the creation of an ad hoc zoning steering committee to work with the consultant to prepare a draft code for public review.  The ad hoc Steering Committee recently completed this phase of the project, and thus that is who submitted the Public Draft in April of 2019.  

View/Download the draft zoning code (DZC).  The DZC is also available for public inspection at the Village Hall, Monday through Friday during regular business hours (9:00 am to 4:00 pm). Please note the viewing process is currently only available online due to COVID-19.

Public Workshop dates were previously posted, and held. Such workshop dates have now passed, and Village Staff and the Plan Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals are now working towards a final draft. The Final Draft Zoning Code will be available at a later date, in which two additional Public Workshops will be held. When the final draft is available, then the two dates will be made public in advance. 

 If anyone has questions about the DZC please feel free to email or call the Village Administrator
