I’m responsible for the overall planning and management of the operations of the Village of Tinley Park's Community Development Department. I oversee the day-to-day activities of the three divisions that make up the department, which include Economic Development, Planning and Building.
In addition to these responsibilities, I also provide guidance to the Mayor and Village Board concerning planning and zoning issues facing Tinley Park, and develop and implement policies, plans and ordinances regarding planning and zoning.
The Economic Development Division’s main focus is to attract and retain businesses in the community, and the Planning Division ensures that development happens in an orderly and attractive manner. The Building Division maintains and tracks permits issued for all new construction, alterations, additions, repairs and demolitions, along with inspecting all building projects to assure compliance with the Village’s building codes.
My job helps build a better Tinley by ensuring community development services meet the needs of the residents and businesses that make up the community. These services are essential to the orderly growth and development of the community, which makes Tinley Park an attractive place in which to live and do business.
