Building and Planning Division - Customer Survey

This year the Village of Kenilworth is taking a moment to review its Building and Planning Division processes to identify areas where enhanced service delivery can be provided to applicants. As part of this effort, we are interested in feedback from prior building permit and zoning relief applicants to learn more about their review process experience.

If you have the time and feedback to share, please take a moment to complete the survey linked here. It should hopefully take no more than 5-10 minutes. 

We sincerely thank you for your input as we continue to refine and improve our processes.

Beach Improvement Project

Come and hear a presentation on the Beach Improvement Project on February 2 @ 7:00 p.m. or February 4 @ 11:00 a.m. at the Assembly Hall, 410 Kenilworth Ave. As part of the 2023 goals, the Village Board would like to improve the beach experience and opportunities for all residents through the Beach Improvement Project. The project will evaluate available options for repurposing the former water treatment plant and beach protection. 

Resident input on this project is an integral component for a successful outcome, so please join us! To learn more about the project background and goals, visit the Beach Improvement Project page here.
