Throughout the history of Lake Zurich, the Village has been fortunate to be served by resident volunteers who contribute their talents, abilities, and time for the benefit of their community.
The Planning & Zoning Commission (PZC) is a seven-member commission scheduled to meet the third Wednesday of every month at 7 pm.
This Commission is responsible for long-range planning for the Village and making recommendations to the Village Board on development issues and proposals, including special use permits, subdivision plats, planned unit developments, and other projects.
Attributes and skills that make a good PZC Commissioner:
- A basic understanding of the zoning and development process with a willingness and ability to review and understand issues, regulations and policies related to zoning and development. Ability to read drawings and architectural plans.
- Willingness to make decisions based on the best interests of the community as a whole, rather than the interests of one applicant or other special interest groups.
- Attention to detail and a willingness to listen and continue to learn.
- The ability to maintain working relationships with other PZC members, the Village Board, Village staff, residents, and the public. Ability to balance various competing interests and work within a team framework.
- A willingness to attend evening meetings on a regular basis. The regular meetings of the PZC are held on the third Wednesdays of the month at 7 pm.
