Affordable Housing Plan

In response to the Affordable Housing Planning and Appeals Act adopted by the State of Illinois, the Village adopted its first Affordable Housing Plan in 2005. The plan identified measures that should be taken to increase the number of affordable housing units in the community.

In 2020, the Village adopted a series of amendments to the Affordable Housing Plan and also enacted specific policies for increasing the supply of affordable housing in the community These actions included an amendment to the Northbrook Zoning Code to require larger developments to provide affordable housing and the establishment of a “demolition tax” to be used to fund other local housing programs.
