Planning and Zoning Commission

The Planning and Zoning Commission was created to hear matters and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees concerning land use.  Principally, these recommendations involve appeals of zoning interpretations and applications for variances from Chapter 62 (Zoning) of the Village’s Municipal Code.


The Planning and Zoning Commission consists of 7 appointed volunteers that live in the Village of Brookfield.  Members have staggered 5-year terms.  Any resident interested in serving on the Commission should send a cover letter and resume to the Village President.
