Keep in mind that a property must be within the Village of Roselle in order to connect to the Village’s sewer system or water system. Those owners of properties not within the Village, such as those in unincorporated DuPage County including portions of Bloomingdale Township called “Countryside” and “Medinah” as well as those in unincorporated Cook County including portions of Schaumburg Township, must petition to annex to the Village of Roselle before connecting to sewer or water.
The Village typically annexes a property within three or four months after receiving a petition for annexation. If annexed to the Village of Roselle then the owner of the property will receive all the benefits of being in the Village such as quicker police service, cheaper garbage pickup, etc.; however, the owner of the property must follow all the Village’s regulations they may not be accustomed to such as obtaining vehicle stickers for every vehicle they own.
Even so, the Zoning Ordinance limits the ways in which owners of property may utilize their property differently depending upon the location of their property. For example, in residential areas, the Zoning Ordinance prohibits businesses such as offices, restaurants, shops, warehouses, and factories because the layout, noise, traffic, etc. of such businesses would disturb the residential neighborhood in addition to the residents of the neighborhood.
Furthermore, the Zoning Ordinance limits the ways in which owners of properties in nonresidential areas may utilize their property as well in order to promote the health, safety, welfare, and general well-being of the Village. For instance, the Village does not want a warehouse with semi trucks coming and going next to a restaurant where children, seniors, and cars are coming and going.
