Downtown Rezoning

Zoning and Planning Commission continued deliberation scheduled for April 27, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

Over the last ten years, Downtown Elmhurst has continued to change and evolve. While past Downtown Plans provided strong and insightful direction for Downtown, new issues and priorities unforeseen at those times have developed, requiring the City to reassess its vision.

In June of 2016, the City of Elmhurst adopted a new Downtown Plan. The Downtown Plan presents a vision for the year 2025, the Downtown Plan provides goals, objectives, and other recommendations of action to be undertaken by the City to maintain Downtown as an attractive and vibrant city center. A copy of the Plan can be found here.
 
To realize the Vision set forth in the Plan, the Plan identifies and recommends changes to the City’s zoning ordinance, and development procedures and processes. On March 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. a Public Hearing will be held for the proposed zoning changes recommended in the Plan. 
 
The City will be holding Open Houses on March 9th and March 13th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at City Hall to help explain the proposed changes.
