Overview:

The Village of Hanover Park is taking steps to implement our long-range vision of creating a vibrant ‘downtown’ area around the Metra train station. Streetscape improvements were installed last year, creating a new plaza and public spaces. To implement land use recommendations of our Comprehensive Plan and Village Center Transit-Oriented Development Plan, changes are proposed to the Zoning Ordinance. The proposed amendment to the Zoning Ordinance is significantly different than the traditional zoning districts they are replacing.  These changes include the creation of new zoning districts with regulations and guidelines for future development in the Village Center area. All interested parties may attend the public hearing to learn more about the project or provide public comment.  The Notice of Public Hearing is available online and was sent to all property owners whose properties are being rezoned, along with all properties within 250'.   

The Development Commission agenda packet, including draft zoning ordinance, will be available on the Village website, www.hpil.org.   For further information, call 630-823-5780.
