Cook County Zoning Board of Appeals
The primary duty is to aid the public in considering all rezoning appeals pertaining to land uses in the unincorporated areas. Zoning Board of Appeals is a board made up of nine members: seven voting members appointed by the Cook County Board of Commissioners President with advice and consent of the Cook County Board of Commissioners; and two Ex-Officio non-voting Members. The Zoning Board of Appeals "is conscientious of cultural conditions in all communities ... [it's] first concern is the interest of the public when determining zoning requests, whether it be the applicants views or that of the objectors."

The Illinois Attorney General has said that all public bodies subject to the Open Meetings Act must provide an opportunity for members of the public to address public officials at open meetings. Public comment periods offer an avenue for people to support or oppose policy decisions and provide information that might not otherwise be represented in a meeting.

Knowing the time and location of a meeting is one thing, but it doesn’t necessarily make getting there any easier. Varying meeting times and locations can reduce barriers for attendees.
