The Commission schedules public hearings for the purpose of taking action on business items such as variance requests, subdivisions, site development plans, and zone map amendments.  Home Occupation Permit applications are also heard and approved prior to the business operator obtaining a Business Registration.  The Land Use Ordinances (including Subdivision) are the laws that the Commission follows in conducting the public hearings.  (Village Code) If you wish to send an email to any or all of the Planning and Zoning Commission please contact the Planning and Zoning Department by e-mail at
