[ARCHIVED] Michael Hammond to Serve as Chair of the Montgomery Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals

At the April 18th meeting of the Montgomery Plan Commission, Commissioner Mike Hammond was elected to serve as Chair of both the Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA). He replaces former Chair Steve Jungermann, who was recently elected to serve on the Montgomery Board of Trustees.

Hammond, his wife Darcy and their two sons Kyle and Ryan moved to Montgomery in 2003. He was first appointed to the Plan Commission / ZBA in 2004 by Village President Marilyn Michelini, and was reappointed to a second five-year term. During his tenure, Hammond has participated in the planning for the numerous housing subdivisions, the new Police Station and Village Hall, Orchard Road commercial corridor and the Ogden Hill Shopping Center, just to name a few. He is active in the community and sits on the Kaneland School District’s Citizens Advisory Committee and the Financial Advisory Committee. Hammond is employed by a large software company and works in the Global Business Operations division. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from DePaul University.

The Montgomery Plan Commission was created to provide guidance and direction regarding growth and development or redevelopment within the Village and contiguous territory. The Commission consists of seven Village residents, appointed by the Village President on the basis of their qualifications and subject to the approval of the Village Board of Trustees. The same seven residents serve on the Zoning Board of Appeals, which hears appeals to the Zoning Ordinance and makes recommendations on variations. It is the duty of the Chair to preside at all meetings of the Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals, enforce the rules of procedure, execute the will of the Commission and mediate all public hearings.

The Plan Commission meets monthly at the Village Hall in downtown Montgomery. A complete schedule of Plan Commission meetings is posted on the Village website at The public is invited and encouraged to attend Plan Commission meetings.
