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.
