The City’s Planning Department promotes and enhances the well-being of residents, visitors, property owners, and businesses of the City of Villa Park. The Department is guided by the City’s General Plan, which serves as the City’s road map and guides the overall form of the City. More specific development standards are contained in the Zoning Code, which regulates size and height of buildings, setbacks from property lines, and specific types of uses and establishes the procedures for development approvals such as Use Permits, and Variances.

Depending on the nature of a project, an approval may be issued by the either administratively or by the City Council. Larger or more complex development projects involving General Plan or zoning amendments, and special issues such as affordable housing and animal permits are reviewed by the Planning Department.

The Planning Department also oversees residential and commercial development within the City limits. The City Planner administers the City’s comprehensive planning and zoning and subdivision ordinances under the direction of the City Manager. The City Planner reviews all site plans for residential and commercial development. The City Council serves as the City’s planning commission and reviews and approves conditional use permits, variances, and minor partitions.

The City of Villa Park currently contracts with Sagecrest Planning+Environmental for Planning Services.
