Planning & Zoning

In an effort to protect the public health, safety, and general welfare of residents and visitors, the Village of Huntley adopted the current Zoning Ordinance in 2009. The ordinance divides the village into zoning districts, restricting and regulating the location, erection, construction, reconstruction, alteration and use of buildings, structures and land use for residence, business, manufacturing and other specified uses. 

Every parcel of land within the Village limits has been classified within one of the zoning districts. Each spring the Village updates the Zoning Map to reflect changes that have occurred in the previous year. Any person planning construction on their property, or changing the land use, must adhere to the restrictions set forth in the Zoning Ordinance and receive approval from the Village before building permits or occupancy permits can be issued.
