The McHenry County Zoning Board of Appeals has extended the deadline to submit written and emailed comments on the Unified Development Ordinance to April 18, 2014.
Over the last week, written and verbal comments were accepted in person through four public meetings at Marengo High School, McHenry Township Office, McHenry County College, and the District 50 Administration Center in Harvard. All comments will be compiled for review by the Zoning Board of Appeals prior to the next hearing date of 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 23 at the McHenry County Administration Building. At that time, the board will commence formally reviewing the comments and making corresponding edits to the ordinance, when deemed appropriate.
Written comments may be mailed to Richard Kelly Jr., Chairman, McHenry County Zoning Board of Appeals, 2200 N. Seminary Avenue, Woodstock, IL 60098 or emailed to: PlanDev@co.mchenry.il.us. All written and emailed comments must be received by 4:30 p.m., Friday, April 18.
The Unified Development Ordinance updates and combines several existing county ordinances, including the zoning, subdivision, and sign ordinances.
The Public Hearing Draft of the ordinance, and a report highlighting many of the changes, are available for viewing at the McHenry County Department of Planning and Development Office and on the County Website at: www.co.mchenry.il.us/county-government/departments-j-z/planning-development.
