The purpose of Building & Zoning is to preserve and enhance the quality of life in the Village of Lake Zurich through planning, administration and enforcement of the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, land development, and zoning and building codes.
These services are implemented through two business units, Building & Code Enforcement and the Planning & Development:
• The Building
is responsible for review, approval and issuance of permits for all construction projects. The division also performs scheduled and periodic inspections during construction to ensure compliance with building codes and standards.
• The Planning & Development
is responsible for guiding the applicants through all project phases of the development and approval process, Route 12 corridor guidelines and providing economic development information.
Together these two divisions work toward maintaining the neighborhood character of the community. The staff is responsible for the oversight and implementation of the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, Zoning Code, Building Codes, and department policies and procedures.
The business units serve as a resource to the elected and appointed officials and the community at-large. Additionally, staff serves as a liaison to several boards and commissions, including the Planning and Development Committee, Plan Commission, and the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA).
