Zoning Code Update Project 2022

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 update 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 update 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 Camiros process included the creation of an ad hoc zoning steering committee to work with the consultant to prepare a draft updated code for public review.  The ad hoc steering committee recently completed this phase of the project in 2019.   Following the ad hoc zoning steering committee process the 2019 draft was reviewed by the Plan Commission using a series of workshops that many from the public attended via Zoom.  


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Plan Commission  Public Hearing has been delayed.  In 2021 the Village decided to wait until the Plan Commission Public Hearing could be held in a venue or space that will accommodate the anticipated public.  

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