Planning is an important tool for the orderly growth and development of a community. The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range policy guide for the future physical and social development of the Village. This is a fluid document and is to be utilized only as a guide. It is not intended to dictate exactly how a property should or should not be developed.
Short-term planning efforts of the Village entail the review of various development proposals by the Plan Commission and Village Board. These proposals are reviewed according to the applicable codes and ordinances of the Village and for the level of conformance with the adopted Comprehensive Plan.
