Zoning & Land Use


Zoning regulates the use of parcels of land by assigning them a classification or district. The standards adopted for each district specify the:
  • Type of building that can be constructed or improvements made
  • Distance building must be located from property lines
  • Height of the building
  • Minimum square footage of building
  • Other requirements
A quick description of each zoning district is available in the online Village Code. Zoning information may be found in Chapter 535.

On May 20, 2019 the Village Board requested an update on the health effects of 5G communications systems and future regulations.  The content of that memo can be found here.  Discussion may be found within the Village Board meeting minutes.
