The Village of Glenview

Community Development

The Community Development Department consists of three divisions: Planning; Inspectional Services; and Engineering.


The Planning Division assists with the review of proposed land uses and development projects in order to ensure compatibility with the Village's Comprehensive Plan. The division assists in implementing major planning initiatives, such as corridor and special area studies. The Planning Division processes petitions for annexations, rezonings, site plan reviews, subdivisions, aesthetics, variations, and conditional use permits, while providing excellence in service and applying innovative planning techniques to support Village residents, businesses, and commissions in navigating the regulatory review process.
