Zoning variations

The Village's Zoning Code is intended to promote the public safety, health, convenience, comfort, preservation of property values, and general welfare of the Village.

Should a variation be required, the applicant will have to present their case to the Zoning Board of Appeals (there is a $650 application fee) and the Village Board.

A complete variation application must be submitted no later than the 15th day of the month in order to be heard by the Zoning Board of Appeals in the following month.

The application form below contains an outline of all application requirements. Please review them carefully.
