The Zoning Board's primary duty is to hear petitions or appeals to the application of the terms of the Village's Zoning Code.  The Zoning Board has limited authority to grant variations to the provisions of the Zoning Code and primarily only grants a variance when the property owner can demonstrate that the Zoning Code imposes practical difficulties or particular hardship not created by the property owner.

This Board consists of seven (7) members who are residents of the Village:

  • Rick A. Picl, Chairman  
  • Rick Kerr 
  • Robera Knoll
  • Craig Masters  
  • Cathy Stevenson 
  • Toni Troxel
  • vacant

Members of the Zoning Board are appointed by the Mayor, subject to approval by the Board of Trustees, to serve a term of five years or until their successors are duly appointed.  The Zoning Board is led by Chairman Rick Picl and meets on an as needed basis on Mondays in Village Hall beginning at 6:30 pm.

To schedule a hearing before the Peoria Heights Zoning Board, please fill out an pdfapplication for a Zoning Hearing and submit it to the Administration Department at Village Hall.
