Strengthening the community’s policy decisions by supporting the Village’s vision and master plan, and by bringing its Ordinance up to date with contemporary language, standards, and policies

County Planning worked closely with Village staff to reformat the community’s Planning & Zoning Code and Official Zoning Map. The project team took an in-depth look at the existing Ordinance and created new tables, graphics, and application process charts to make the new Code easy to navigate and user friendly.
