Message From the Mayor
Oppose the Stealth Tax
There is a vacancy om the Planning and Zoning Commission and we are seeking a citizen volunteer to fill it.
The only requirements are a sincere intrest and the ability to attend monthly meetings on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Related experience in land use would be helpful, but it is not required.
The responsibilities of the Commission include review of new residential and commercial developments, applications for zoning changes and variations. The Planning and Zoning Commission is currently involved in updating the 2002 Comprehensive Plan.
For an application, please contact the Mayor's office at 630-257-1590 or download an application form from the Village website.
— Brian K. Reaves, Mayor of Lemont
