The Economic Development & Planning Department is responsible for issues related to land use and development. The Department assists potential businesses with site selection services, provides information to the business community on commercial vacancies, demographics, community profiles, and property statistics. We strive to create a business-friendly environment so that existing businesses will choose to remain and new businesses will locate in Westchester, thereby creating a variety of goods and services for residents and businesses and ensuring the Village maintains a balanced tax base that creates sufficient revenue to provide for Village services.
The Planning & Economic Development Department provides staff support to the Plan & Zoning Commission and the Economic Development Committee. The Economic Development & Planning Department's offices are located in the Village Hall main building at 10300 Roosevelt Road. They can be contacted between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm weekdays by calling 708-223-3052.
