The Land Use Technical Committee (LUTC) was created in 2013 to advise the Village Board on improvements to the Village Zoning Code.
The LUTC established four goals:
- Reduce the burden on Land Use Boards, making the process more understandable, with less duplication and complication, more clarity for each board’s roles and responsibilities and provide more time for boards to focus on providing more effective and timely review with better outcomes for both board members and applicants.
- Reduce the burden on the Building Department, provide less time and staff resources for board administration, provide more clarity to the code with less complicated procedures, possible reduction of variance requests with more time and focus on plan review.
- Make the Land Use Process more Understandable and Predictable for Applicants and Reduce the burden on homeowners for smaller property improvements/modifications, more clarity, less board duplication, reduction in possible variance requests, reduce number of smaller applications with less demand for staff, administrative and board resources, more timely and efficient process, more predictable outcome.
- Protect and Maintain the Integrity of Community Character.
