The Community Development Department's mission is to guide and manage the development, construction, and use of property in a manner that maximizes the positive benefits for all of Warrenville, while at the same time minimizes the negative impacts on the use and enjoyment of individual properties.
The Building Division issues permits for residential and commercial new construction, alterations, remodeling, additions, renovations, temporary structures, decks, storage buildings, patios, fences, driveways, roofs, and some repairs and right-of-way construction.
The City of Warrenville utilizes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies to optimize the use of spatial data to aid in planning, zoning, infrastructure, engineering, and many other day to day municipal operations.
The Planning and Zoning Division is concerned with the development, maintenance, and implementation of the Comprehensive Plan, Zoning, and Subdivision Control Ordinances through the zoning petition process.
Located in City Hall, the Community Development Department includes the following divisions: Economic Development, Planning/Zoning/GIS, Building/Code Enforcement, and Engineering/Stormwater and Floodplain Management.
