The Planning and Zoning Division administers the Comprehensive Land Use Plan and the Homewood Zoning Ordinance. All applications for new construction, remodels, additions, home-based businesses, zoning variance requests, zoning map and text amendments, special use permits and site plan reviews are processed for compliance through this Division. Applications may require public hearings and the timeline for final decision varies by request.
For more information, contact the Building Department at 708-206-3385 with any questions pertaining to development projects and zoning variances.
Zoning Forms and Applications are available online and in person in the Community Development Department. Applications for Planning and Zoning Commission hearings must be received 30 days prior to the hearing. Most requests are published and neighbors within 250 feet of the applicant's property line are notified by letter.
