The Plan Commission is responsible for the preparation and maintenance of the General Development Plan for the City of Joliet. The Commission also makes recommendations to the City Council on all petitions for zoning reclassification, annexations, plats of subdivision, planned unit developments and amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations. The Director of Community Development is the Secretary to the Commission and all petitions for review by the Plan Commission are filed in the Community Development office.
The Joliet Historic Preservation Commission (JHPC) is an advisory board to the City which was established with the Historic Preservation Ordinance of 1990 and subsequent amendments. The JHPC evaluates historic properties and structures for nomination as Local Landmarks, or part of Local Historic Districts. Once nominated, the Commission recommends to the City Council the properties or structures that should be designated as Local Landmarks or as Local Historic Districts; the City Council then makes the final determination.
