The Community Development Department is located on the first floor in Village Hall, One North Prospect Avenue. The Department is responsible for plan review, permit issuance, and code inspection services for all new construction and remodeling projects. The types of improvements that require a permit are new houses, additions, interior alterations, garages, decks, electrical and plumbing work, commercial buildings and build-outs, in-ground irrigation systems, driveways, and signs.

The Department is headed by the Community Development Director, who also serves as the Building Commissioner and staff liaison to the Zoning Board of Appeals/Plan Commission, Downtown Design Review Commission, and Economic Development Commission. A full-time building assistant provides building permit and inspection scheduling assistance at the front counter and over the phone. Part-time building, electrical, and plumbing inspectors provide construction inspection services. The Department contracts with an architectural firm and an engineering firm for plan review services.

The Department also handles all planning and zoning matters, including requests for variations, rezoning, special uses, subdivisions, business and contractor licensing, and issuance of certificates of occupancy for new businesses. Informational handouts and various required forms for building permits, zoning processes, and licensing are available online and at Village Hall.
