Comprehensive Plan: Land Use related planning elements were completed as of December, 2004. Other elements are in process. The complete “smart growth” plan should be completed sometime in 2008. An executive summary of the land use element is available.
Basic process of approval or denial of a development plan:
• 1st Concept Plan reviewed by staff
• 2nd Site Plan reviewed by Plan Commission. Meetings held on the third Monday of each month.
• 3rd Exterior architectural elements reviewed by Architectural Review Board. Meetings held on fourth Tuesday of every month.
• 4th Plans reviewed, approved or rejected by Village Board. Meetings held on second and fourth Monday of each month.
TIF districts: The Village will encourage the use of TIF, particularly when considering redevelopment. There is one closed out TIF, and there are two active TIFs.
TIF No. 1 Downtown Hartland Development closed out 1997
TIF No. 2 (1998) Business Park / Light Industrial Development located at the south edge of the Village and is projected to close in 2008; current value (2006): $59,142,700
TIF No. 3 (1998) Business Park / Light Industrial Development located at the south edge of the Village and is projected to close in 2008; current value (2006): $21,304,800.
Redevelopment Aid: Hartland encourages use of TIF, state, federal and county economic development incentives. The Village implemented a BID in 2007. The newly formed BID takes in the Village Center area as identified in our Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
Projects: The two most recent developments include 29,500 sq/ft. multi-tenant office facility and a 56,000 Sq/ft single-user mfg facility. Both are located in an existing TIF district.

Time Schedule for Plan Approval: The typical amount of time for the Village to approve a plan is about 45 to 60 days.
Building or Growth Moratoria: There are no building or growth moratoria in place now. However, there is little land still available.
Environmental Issues: A floodplain is sometimes an issue in downtown property development near Bank River. The Village has recently appealed the FEMA Floodplain determinations and FEMA has agreed to make corrections to their maps regarding the downtown area. This is very positive for future redevelopment in the downtown Business Improvement District (BID).
Single Development Department: There is not a single department that handles the entire process. The Zoning & Inspection, Public Works, Police, Fire, and Administrator’s Office are all relevant departments in the process.
