Community Development

The Director of Community Development of the City of Spring Valley Village welcomes you to our City. The Community Development Department is responsible for guiding the development process, while ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of the City of Spring Valley Village residents and visitors. This department administers the building and zoning codes for the City.

The Community Development Department is divided into two divisions:

Construction Approval


The Community Development Department approves all new construction and proposed improvements of existing structures to make sure they conform to all City ordinances. Zoning ordinances control the location of all buildings and equipment on a lot. Final approval of all plans, permits, and inspections rests with this department, assuring owners of sound construction.

Zoning Ordinance Information


Copies of the Zoning Ordinances are available for purchase at the Permit Office in City Hall. Remember, the homeowner is responsible for seeing that the proper permits have been obtained before the work begins.
