The Economic and Community Development Department handles various inquiries regarding zoning and development and processes building permits. Additionally, our Code Enforcement Division enforces rules and regulations adopted by the ICC Property Maintenance Codes and the Village of University Park Zoning Ordinance. Our inspectors are certified to handle inspections on residential and commercial properties located throughout the Village.
Our main focus is to achieve long-term goals outlined in the Comprehensive Plan and to enhance our community with new development.
There are several development opportunities for retail / commercial, industrial, and office uses in our Village. Governors Gateway Industrial Park and Commerce Center, located near I-57 in the western portion of the village, provides one example of a great location for business development.
If you have questions regarding economic development or code enforcement, feel free to contact us at (708) 235-4848.
