[ARCHIVED] City Zoning Code Update Public Meeting and Next Steps

Warrenville By Design City Zoning Code update process

The City's Zoning Code Update public meeting August 9 allowed residents to share their thoughts on how the City can maintain its small-town feel in key areas of the community.

The City will update its zoning code to regulate future development and:

  • Make sure that City buildings and public spaces (streets, sidewalks, parking, plazas, and gathering places) are connected and result in a high-quality, dynamic environment
  • Attract private sector investment
  • Provide different types of housing in key areas of the community 

There are two main focus areas:

  1. Butterfield Road and Batavia Road
  2. Warrenville Road and Batavia Road

Goals include:

  • Creating walkable, vibrant, community centers
  • Encouraging mixed-use development
  • Providing a variety of housing types

PHASE ONE of this process in May included a project kick-off meeting, listening sessions, and a field survey. 

Learn more about those sessions in the Key Takeaways Summary at: WarrenvillebyDesign-KeyTakeawaysSummary.pdf

We encourage you to review the Project Directions Memo, which identifies key issues and recommendations, and also outlines the updated zoning code structure at: WarrenvillebyDesign-KeyTakeawaysSummary.pdf

NEXT STEPS following the August 9 public input meeting:

  • During the summer and fall, the City's consultant team will develop an initial draft zoning code
  • There will be a public review of the draft code during a community open house at a day/time to be determined.
  • Stay tuned for updates!
