Building & Zoning is a division of the Public Works Department and is responsible for assuring that all construction meets minimum health and life safety standards, building code requirements, zoning and property maintenance standards as specified in the Village Zoning Code. Since June 2017, the Village has contracted with HR Green, Inc. to provide building plan review and construction and life safety inspection services. Representatives from HR Green work out of Village Hall and are typically available for consultation Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week; however, Public Works staff are also available regularly to answer questions as needed.
