The Planning Commission is an appointed body which is charged with developing and implementing the Village's Comprehensive Development Plan. This plan provides a vision of the community's future. It is a tool for decision making on future development proposals.
The Planning Commission implements this plan through the Zoning Ordinance. Zoning is the authority to regulate private use of land by creating land use zones and applying development standards in the various zoning districts.
