INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE: CONSTRUCTION PERMITTING, LAND USE HEARINGS, LAND DIVISIONS
CONSTRUCTION PERMITTING. The Village Board recently approved agreements with two credentialed residential and commercial building inspectors, Jane Drager and Michael Ziereis. We are grateful for their assistance as we continue to modernize our inspection program, a process which began in early 2018.
Residents and property owners will see a new and very different building and construction application and inspection program for our community. Our initial focus is on residential construction, and the revised permit applications can be found below. Code amendments and an updated fee schedule are being drafted and scheduled for approval within the next few months. We also anticipate bringing online a commercial program in early 2019, which will include plan review as well as inspections.
The Board sought these changes to make our permitting and inspection program more responsive and effective. The changes require individual applications for each type of permit. The application details the information that is needed, eliminating the previous guesswork in describing the project. This will enable a faster turnaround and more responsive staff review.
