Economic Development and Planning Department Changes Name to Building & Zoning

DuPage County announces that the Economic Development and Planning Department will now be referred to as Building & Zoning, effective Sept. 14. The name change better reflects the department's operations and streamlined services for residents. 

The Building & Zoning Department will encompass the Building Division, Zoning & Planning Division and Environmental Division which offers services including building permitting, planning and zoning for unincorporated areas.  Other services available within the department include environmental compliance and sustainability initiatives.

Development Committee Chairman Sam Tornatore said, "Our goal is to offer customers 'one-stop-shopping' in the building process. Residents can get their questions answered, obtain necessary permits and schedule inspections as quickly as possible. It's the same, efficient service with a new name." Residents can also track their progress toward obtaining various permits on the Building & Zoning webpage.
