Divisions
The Administration and Planning Division provides three major functions: Coordinating effective communication between the General Public and the other Divisions of the Will County Land Use Department through the Administration Section. Developing land use plans and ordinances and maintaining important land use and growth data through the Long Range Planning Section.
The Building Division is responsible for administering and enforcing both commercial and residential building codes and standards adopted by the Will County Board. The Division's main focus is issuing permits and performing inspections to ensure compliance with the adopted codes.
The Community Development Division strives to preserve, develop and improve the quality of life in our unincorporated neighborhoods and communities. The focus remains to maintain a balance between accessibility, livability, and affordability all within a healthy and safe environment. The Grants Section of the Division utilizes grant funds it receives from federal and state government sources to carry out various community development activities that also aide in providing decent housing, suitable living environments and more importantly improved community facilities and services focused on potable drinking water and sanitary sewer improvements. The Enforcement Section of the Division is charged with the responsibility of enforcing the property maintenance, building and zoning codes that aide in providing decent housing and a suitable living environment.
The Development Review Division, comprised of the Current Planning & Zoning group and the Subdivision Engineering group, has an important role in the development life cycle of both the man made and natural assets in unincorporated Will County by administering and implementing the Will County ordinances and adopted plans listed below. It also supports and assists the Land Use and Development Committee, the Planning and Zoning Commission, and the Will County Stormwater Management Planning Committee.
The Resource Recovery and Energy Division is a division of the Land Use Department, that responds to complaints, answers thousands of calls each year, presents information to over 10,000 children and adults, staffs booths at health fairs, community celebrations and more while also providing special collection events. In addition, the office assists municipalities and townships with curbside collection contracts and drop-off sites, helps schools expand their waste reduction and recycling efforts, works with businesses to improve their recycling and energy efficiency and offers a website filled with information on recycling, energy savings information and more.
