Public Hearing


Please note that the date and location of the previously scheduled Public Hearing has been changed.


The DeKalb County Board is currently considering a proposal to amend the DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance to allow for and establish regulations for wind energy systems. In order to change the County Code and Zoning Ordinance, an Amendment must be approved by the County Board. Before the County Board can approve an Amendment, a Public Hearing must be held by the County Hearing Officer.


The DeKalb County Community Development Department has filed a petition for the proposed Zoning Text Amendment. Two public hearings will be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer, both on Monday, September 24, 2018 in the Egyptian Theater, 135 N. 2nd Street, DeKalb, IL, 60115. The first hearing will be held from 1:00 pm. to 4:30 pm., and the second hearing will be held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. As these will be the only opportunity for public input on this matter, all interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard. The proposed Zoning Text Amendments, Petition DC-18-35, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.


The requested Zoning Text Amendment to the DeKalb County Code and Zoning Ordinance would be to Articles 4 and 5, and Chapter 14, Section 14-3 of the County Code.


The application for a Text Amendment has been filed in accordance with the requirements of Article 10.04 of the DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance.
