Our Town Is Your Town

Zoning Administration


Local control of the use of land (with some exceptions, such as state and federal land uses) is an accepted legal principle.  Land use is controlled through the separation of land into various use areas, called zoning districts. The rules governing these districts are contained in a zoning ordinance which includes provisions controlling the type and intensity of development allowed.
The original ordinance was adopted on April 13, 1987.   The current Zoning Ordinance was passed on September 28, 1998.
The Zoning Ordinance is located in the Official Documents page of this website.  Zoning Applications/Permits are located on the Village Forms & Permits page of this site.

Winter Reminders:

Private snow contractors must clear all snow from the public streets and sidewalks. Residents are prohibited from blowing or shoveling snow into the streets or leave on the sidewalks. As a courtesy the village removes snow from the sidewalks and does the main school route first. However, it is the property owner’s responsibility to keep the sidewalk clear of snow & ice. Please be considerate of the DPW employees when they are removing snow. Mail Boxes Please check your mailbox post to be sure it is stable before the winter season is upon us and that the box is securely on the post. Mailboxes and / or supports that are damaged as a result from snowplowing are not subject to replacement by the Village.
