The Village of Glenview

Appearance Commission


The Appearance Commission's role is to protect Glenview’s distinctive character by regulating the general appearance of many of its developments. The goal is to ensure that developments are harmonious with their surroundings, contributing to a less cluttered, more attractive community. The Commission reviews, analyzes and approves all aesthetic changes (including facade alterations, signage and landscaping) to commercial, industrial and multifamily residential developments and issues Certificates of Appropriateness.

Meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.
