Pleasant Prairie Community Development Department
The Village of Pleasant Prairie Community Development Department efforts focus on coordinating development through sound land use planning and implementation of development controls and zoning. The department is responsible for encouraging and regulating the use of the land, waters, and structures in a planned and orderly manner so as to promote the public health, safety, convenience, and general welfare of the citizens of the community. This is done by respecting the balance between property owners' rights, economic development, and environmental protection.
The department promotes the preservation of environmentally sensitive areas such as the Chiwaukee Prairie Nature Preserve located in the eastern portion of the Village and the Des Plaines River Watershed located in the western portion of the Village.
The department provides services such as: developing and updating the Village's comprehensive plans, including the land use plan, park and open space plan, transportation plan, and neighborhood plans; reviewing site plans, operational plans, development plans, and planned developments for commercial, industrial, and institutional projects; reviewing all land divisions, subdivisions, and multi-family developments; providing technical planning and zoning information to the public; and conducting zoning inspections. The Community Development Department works closely with the Building Inspection, Public Works/Engineering, Administrative, Fire & Rescue, and Police Departments by coordinating all of the development applications and project reviews for all new and expanding residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, and recreational developments in the Village.
