Welcome to the Land Use Department!

As a fairly new addition to the many fine departments of the county, we have adopted this goal as we serve the residents of Grundy County:

To promote a safe, healthy, balanced community that preserves our natural resources and educates our residents to continue this pursuit for future generations of Grundy residents.’

The Land Use Department has three offices to serve Grundy County’s needs. The Environmental & Resource Conservation Office, the Building and Zoning Office and the Planning Office are the fabric that makes up our Land Use Department.

Plush toys will be accepted as they are all sanitized by the Park Pointe Healthcare center in Morris.

We thank Grundy County residents in advance for their generosity. We have always collected over 100 boxes of toys in the past and the children are most appreciative of them.

If you should have any questions please feel free to contact us at (815) 941-3228 for more information.

Reuse and give the gift of fun to a child this season! Thank you Grundy County residents!
