Zoning Modernization

In 2017, the Village Board of Trustees adopted the text and map amendments which comprise the “Zoning Modernization” project.  A major effect of Zoning Modernization is to allow greater density for projects constructed in the vicinity of the 3 Metra stations.  The new zoning also streamlines the development process, requires high quality building material and design, creates a more walkable and sustainable built environment, and allows a more modern mix of uses.

These changes were recommended for approval unanimously by the Planning and Zoning Commission.  The links below include more information about this project.

To learn more about these exciting community projects and development opportunities please contact Community & Economic Development Director Nicholas Greifer at (708) 485-1113 or ngreifer@brookfieldil.gov.
