Development meetings

A development meeting is an informal initial step in the overall planning process. Any interested party can schedule a meeting with staff to discuss a proposed development or improvement of property within the Village of Glenview. A Development Meeting is required prior to the filing of any application for site plan review, annexation, subdivision, rezoning, or planned development. 

What should I bring?

Bring with you a plat of survey, concept plans, or your development ideas and they can be discussed. 

Who will attend?

Village staff members representing the Planning & Inspectional Services Divisions will provide input and be available to answer any procedural, zoning, permitting, engineering or infrastructure questions. It is recommended that the developer invite all members of their development team with whom staff will interact on the particular project (including entitlements coordinators, architects, engineers, landscape architects, consultants, etc.). 

What will be discussed?

Staff will provide you with information regarding the development process within the Village of Glenview and will be available during this time to answer any questions that you may have regarding the feasibility of your proposal. 

Does Staff recommend approval to Commissions?

Village Staff does not make recommendations to the Plan Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, or Appearance Commission regarding approval or denial of your proposal, but acts as a source of information and guidance for interested parties throughout the process. 

How do I schedule a development meeting?

Development meetings are held regularly every Monday except on official holidays and start promptly at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. To schedule a development meeting, contact Tony Repp, Senior Planner, at (847) 904-4309.

    • Chapter 18 of the Village of Glenview Municipal Code requires that all properties be complete lots of record before any new building permits will be issued. The Final subdivision process can involve the consolidation of existing lots/parcels into a new single lot of record or the division of existing lots/parcels into multiple new lots of record. Often times, easements are granted and public right-of-way is dedicated through this process. The subdivision of property can also trigger expenses relating to the installation of outstanding/missing public improvements including roadway pavement, sidewalks, curb & gutter, and parkway trees.
