Zoning Board of Appeals

The purpose of the Glencoe Zoning Board of Appeals is to review applications for variations to the Village’s Zoning Code requirements within a defined framework. This Board provides the final decision on such appeals, and also meets to hear appeals to the sign, fence, and tennis court code requirements of the Village. Glencoe’s Board consists of seven residents who are appointed to overlapping five-year terms.

The members of the Zoning Board of Appeal members also meet as the Zoning Commission at the request of the Village Board to conduct public hearings and to make recommendations with respect to any proposed amendments to the Zoning Code and to grant or deny special use requests.

It is the goal of the appointed Zoning Board of Appeals/Zoning Commission, in conjunction with the Village Board, to maintain stable zoning for Glencoe resulting in ever increasing property values.

Members of the Board include:

  • Howard Roin, Chair
  • Deborah Carlson
  • Sara Elsasser
  • David Friedman
  • Alex Kaplan
  • John Satter
  • Scott Novack

The Board generally meets on the first Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers on the second floor at Village Hall.
