Development Review Process

Overview
Village staff is available to help guide residents and business owners through the development review process. This process helps to ensure that all development within the Village occurs in an efficient and organized manner. This process also allows the Village to work collectively with petitioners, residents, and local business owners to create a positive business environment.

Beginning of the Process
The development review process typically begins with a meeting of Village staff and the petitioner to discuss the project. Once a petitioner has decided to move forward with the project, a formal application is submitted to the Village.

Initial Review & Hearings
Village staff will conduct an initial review and forward the application to the appropriate board or committee for a hearing. Once a recommendation has been made by the appropriate board or committee, the Village Board will consider the application for formal approval.
