All zoning requests are evaluated on their conformance with the official Comprehensive Plan and the Village Code. Other duties include review of development site plans, consideration of text amendments to the Zoning Title, and to conduct Public Hearings related to zoning matters and requests. The Zoning Board is an advisory body, with all final determinations made by the Village Board upon receipt of the recommendation and findings of the Zoning Board.

The Zoning Board consists of a Chairman and members, all appointed by the Mayor with the concurrence of the Board of Trustees. The five regular members serve five year terms, along with an Alternate, who serves a one year term.
