The Plan Commission was established by ordinance in 1920. The Commission is composed of ten residents, four of which are appointed by the Village Board as at-large members and six serve as representatives from the Historic Preservation Commission, Library Board, Park Board, School Board, Village Board, and Zoning Commission.

Additionally, the Plan Commission reviews and provides recommendations to the Village Board on proposed subdivisions and lot consolidations, reviews and makes recommendations on land use matters at the request of the Village Board, and takes final action on design review applications for multiple family and commercial developments proposed for construction or alteration.
