Planning and Zoning is the implementation of the Village's Comprehensive Plan, review of development proposals, and administration of the Zoning, Subdivision, and Sign Ordinances.
Zoning regulations were created by and for the benefit of all Village residents. The Zoning Ordinance is approved by the Board of Trustees with the advice and recommendation of the Plan Commission, and only after review and consideration at public meetings. The contribution of Village residents as members of the Board of Trustees and the Plan Commission, and the participation of residents at public meetings is the primary reason why Burr Ridge is A Very Special Place.
A current copy of the Village's Zoning Map is available for download here.
The Village also maintains a GIS system which can be accessed here.
The Comprehensive Plan is the Village's guiding document for development and growth. If you would like to schedule a meeting with staff to discuss a development proposal or annexation, please contact Community Development Director Janine Farrell using the information below.
If you would like to schedule a meeting with staff to discuss a subdivision proposal or the division of land, please contact Community Development Director Janine Farrell using the information below. The Subdivision Ordinance can be downloaded here.
Signage Regulations can be viewed online here. For sign permits, please visit the Building Permits section. Certain types of signs may require conditional approval or sign variations. Applications for those proposals are available for download below. Conditional sign approval and variation require review by the Plan Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals and are recommended to the Board of Trustees.
