Planning & Zoning

Zoning Permits
A Zoning Permit is needed for any new buildings, additions or alterations to existing buildings. Driveway permits are required when new driveways are installed on a parcel. If you are expanding the width of an existing curb cut you need to verify if a permit is needed. The construction of new fences or extension of existing fences requires a fence permit.

Signs
Most signs in the village require permits. Before ordering a sign verify if it is permitted and if a sign permit application is required. It is recommended that you verify with the village prior to ordering any materials for projects, the Village is happy to assist applicants with their requests and explain the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance. The village does not want the customer to assume the cost for materials or items that are not allowed.
