The Engineering Division of the Community Development Department is responsible for the review of all residential, commercial, and industrial site developments to insure compliance with Village Codes and Ordinances, including the Village's Floodplain and Stormwater Management Code. Currently, the Village relies on a third-party engineering consultant to perform Division responsibilities.
The Division also reviews permit applications and submittals that the developer or property owner is required to obtain from other government agencies such as the Illinois Department of Transportation, Cook County Highway Department, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, US Army Corps of Engineers, Illinois Department of Natural Resources and Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The Division also performs construction specifications and observation to insure that installation of new infrastructure meets the construction specifications and requirements shown on Village approved plans. Additionally, the Village Engineer assists Planning and Building Services, and the Public Works Department and other Village Departments as needed. The Village Engineer also meets with residents and property owners to investigate their concerns within the scope of the Division's duties and responsibilities.
