Step 1

Verify with the Village if your business address/location is currently zoned for your intended business use. Contact Community Development at 847-949-3282.

Step 2

Will your business be selling any of the following?

  • Liquor
  • Tobacco
  • Secondhand Goods

Will your business include any of the following?

  • Pawn Brokering
    Mobile Food Truck
  • Video Gaming Terminals

Contact the Village’s Licensing Coordinator at 847-949-3285

Step 3

Register your business with the Village by completing a Business Registration Application and submitting the required $25 annual registration fee.

Step 4

Will the business location/address undergo modifications - physical changes to the building interior, exterior or property (including signage)?

If so, you would need to submit a Permit Application and provide plans for review.

Businesses without modifications still require proper licenses and an approved Certificate of Occupancy.

Contact the Building Department at 847-949-3283.

Step 5

Once the business has been registered, all potential licenses have been approved and issued, and the business has passed all inspections and a certificate of occupancy has been issued by the Village - it’s time to OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
