Warrenville by Design: Building A Dynamic Historic Core - ON GOING
Let’s design the future of Warrenville’s Historic Core!
The City of Warrenville is undertaking a process to create places for people in and around the key focus areas. This project will ensure that our buildings and streetscapes are designed for a resilient future – one where residents, businesses, and visitors of all ages can thrive in a mixed-use and pedestrian-friendly environment. Together, let’s build a dynamic historic core.
To reach those goals, the City will update its Zoning Code. This process will regulate development to ensure new buildings and sites maintain the City's small town, village-like feel, and achieve the community’s vision for the future.
What is it?
The Warrenville by Design project will use zoning to ensure that our buildings and public spaces (streets, sidewalks, parking, plazas, and gathering places) are connected and result in a high-quality, dynamic environment. This process will result in ways to regulate development to ensure new buildings and sites enhance the small town, village-like feel and achieve the community’s vision for the future.

Project Goals, include:
- Creating more walkable, vibrant, village-like centers for people
- Encouraging a mix of uses to ensure a more vibrant and resilient future - one where residents, businesses, and visitors of all ages can thrive in a mixed-use and pedestrian-friendly environment
- Providing more opportunities for a mix of housing types.
Where are we in the process?
The project kicked off in the spring with listening sessions for select property and business owners, City staff and a work group who have worked with Warrenville’s zoning regulations or who may be directly affected by the regulations. Participants shared their observations about the focus areas, adopted Subarea Plans, experiences with the City’s current zoning code and procedures, and more. What have we heard? Check out the Key Takeaways Summary and Project Directions Memo.
The general public provided feedback at the public meeting held on Wednesday, August 9, 2023, 7:00 p.m., at Warrenville City Hall, located at 28W701 Stafford Place, Warrenville, IL 60555.
