Zoning Board of Appeals


Under the State Enabling Act, Kane County has a Zoning Board of Appeals, appointed by the Chairman of the County Board and approved by the members of the County Board.

This board consists of seven members from various sections of the county, with not more than one from any one township. Each member is appointed for five years. Members may be reappointed with approval of the County Board.

The Zoning Board of Appeals ​holds public hearings to consider requests for rezonings of property, petitions for variations to the zoning ordinance, appeals from rulings or decisions of the enforcing officer, and general amendments to the zoning ordinance. In the matter of rezonings and general amendments to the zoning ordinance, the Zoning Board of Appeals makes recommendations to the County Board for action. ​
