About The Project

PROJECT BACKGROUND
Elk Grove Village is currently updating its Zoning Ordinance, which was adopted in 1972. While there have been a number of amendments and additions since then, that version of the code forms the basis of development regulations in the Village. Zoning ordinances do not necessarily have a “shelf life;” however, they do become out of date as new technologies, best zoning practices, and community concerns requiring regulation come about. The purpose of this assessment is to evaluate the code’s effectiveness in addressing the Village’s needs related to development and regulation of land uses, compare the ordinance’s structure and regulations to current best practices related to zoning administration, and consider an approach by which the code might be updated to the extent necessary.

COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE ON DECEMBER 7! | POSTED: NOVEMBER 30, 2016
The Village is seeking your input on its Zoning Ordinance. What parts of the ordinance work well? What needs to be changed? How can business areas be strengthened? What about our neighborhoods? How does zoning make a difference in all that? We invite you to attend the Community Open House on Wednesday, December 7, 2016, at Village Hall (901 Wellington Avenue) to share your thoughts, ideas, and concerns. The Open House will be an informal event to chat with Village staff and its planning consultant, so you are welcome to stop by anytime between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. See you there!
