    NOTICE TO APPLICANTS: The Concept Plan Review process provides an opportunity for a developer or property owner to receive feedback from various Village staff regarding technical, code-related requirements pertaining to a potential development. This informational handout has been prepared to assist you through the Concept Plan Review process. Please refer to the items listed in Section 1 below for the required documents and plans.
    1.    The following items are required for a complete Concept Plan Review application:

    • A cover letter addressed to the Community Development Department in which you introduce yourself, indicate your relationship to the project or property, and explain the details of the proposal;
    • Eight full sized (folded) and one legible reduced 11 x 17 inch Concept Plan. It is understood that a Concept Plan may not necessarily contain a high level of detail; however, the more information that is provided, the greater the Village staff’s ability will be to provide meaningful feedback regarding the submittal;
    • Any other plans or information that you may wish to submit for review and comment, such as building elevations, floor plans, landscape plans, a business plan, etc.;  
    • Concept Plan Review Application Fee: $640.00.

    2.    The Community Development Department will distribute the submittal to various Village Departments and agencies for an approximate two-week review. An internal comment response deadline will be established.    

    3.    The Community Development Department will summarize the comments in a letter addressed to the applicant. Applicants can expect to receive a commentary letter within three to four weeks from the date of the Concept Plan submittal to the Village. Correspondence will be sent via e-mail so please be sure to provide a valid e-mail address in your cover letter.

    4.    Upon receipt of the Concept Plan commentary letter, the applicant can request a follow-up meeting with Village staff, or revised plans can be submitted for further review.   

    If you have any questions regarding the Concept Plan Review Process,
    please contact the Community Development Department.
