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.
