The Update seeks to incorporate Form-Based Code principles into the Village's existing Zoning Code alongside a modernized list of permitted and prohibited uses for the Village's commercial districts. Goals of the project include greater predictability in both redevelopment and new businesses, as well as a more clear and transparent review process.
A presentation of the draft code to the Plan Commission took place on Tuesday, October 25. Interested stakeholders and members of the public are encouraged to watch the presentation to get a better understanding of the draft code, prior to attending the open house.
Questions and comments on the draft code will be accepted throughout the public review process in preparation for the Plan Commission's recommendation to the Village Board and may be directed to the Village's Planning & Development Director, Bart Griepentrog via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
