Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

65 ILCS 5/11-12-12

    (65 ILCS 5/11-12-12) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-12-12)
    Sec. 11-12-12. No map or plat of any subdivision presented for record affecting land (1) within the corporate limits of any municipality which has heretofore adopted, or shall hereafter adopt an ordinance including an official map in the manner prescribed in this Division 12, or (2) within contiguous territory which is not more than 1 1/2 miles beyond the corporate limits of an adopting municipality, shall be entitled to record or shall be valid unless the subdivision shown thereon provides for streets, alleys, public ways, ways for public service facilities, storm and flood water run-off channels and basins, and public grounds, in conformity with the applicable requirements of the ordinances including the official map; provided, that a certificate of approval by the corporate authorities, certified by the clerk of the municipality in whose jurisdiction the land is located, or a certified copy of an order of the circuit court directing the recording as provided in Section 11-12-8, shall be sufficient evidence of compliance with this section upon which the recorder may accept the plat for recording.
    The provisions of this Section do not apply to any plat for consolidation of 2 or more contiguous parcels, located within any territory that is outside of the corporate limits of a municipality but within a county that has adopted a subdivision ordinance and that has a population of more than 250,000, into a smaller number of parcels if the sole purpose of the consolidation is to bring a non-conforming parcel into conformance with local zoning requirements. The exemption created by this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly does not apply to a plat for consolidation for an area in excess of 10 acres or to any consolidation that results in a plat of more than 10 individual lots following the consolidation. If the county receives a request to approve a plat for consolidation pursuant to this Section, the county must notify all municipalities located within 1 1/2 miles of the subject property within 10 days after receiving the request.

65 ILCS 5/11-12-13

    (65 ILCS 5/11-12-13)
    Sec. 11-12-13. Joint plan commissions. Whenever the corporate authorities of 2 or more municipalities having a population less than 500,000 determine that unincorporated land and territory lying adjacent to any one or more of such municipalities, or land and territory comprising a portion of such municipalities, or land and territory both lying adjacent to such municipalities and being a part of such municipalities forms a contiguous region and such land and territory (i) is or was formerly owned by the United States of America or any department thereof, (ii) is located entirely within a county having a population of not less than 500,000 nor more than 1,000,000 persons, (iii) has been annexed or is intended to be annexed to one or more of such municipalities, and (iv) comprises not less than 500 nor more than 800 acres, the said corporate authorities are hereby empowered, by intergovernmental agreement between or among the municipalities, to define the boundaries of such region and to create a joint plan commission having one, some, or all of the powers set forth in this Section.
    (1) Membership of joint plan commissions. The joint plan commission shall consist of such number of persons known as "members" as shall be set forth in the intergovernmental agreement. The parties, acting by and through their mayors or village presidents with the advice and consent of each of their respective corporate authorities, shall appoint the members who shall hold office as set forth in such intergovernmental agreement. If authorized to do so by such intergovernmental agreement, the joint plan commission may employ a staff to assist in the administration and enforcement of zoning and building codes or ordinances throughout the region.
    (2) Powers and duties of joint plan commissions. The corporate authorities by such intergovernmental agreement may provide for the joint plan commission to have all or some of the functions, powers and duties contained in Divisions 12, 13, 14, and 15 of this Article 11 of this Code.
        (a) The joint plan commission shall be a
    
recommendatory body only and all recommendations thereof shall be advisory to all of the corporate authorities of the municipalities which have entered into such intergovernmental agreement and affect only that incorporated land and territory of the region lying within the corporate limits of such municipalities.
        (b) Such intergovernmental agreement may further
    
authorize such joint plan commission exclusive jurisdiction to apply and enforce the respective zoning and building codes and other applicable codes of each municipality concerning the land within the region lying within the respective corporate limits of such municipality and may provide for immediate removal of such region from the jurisdiction of such municipalities' plan commissions, zoning boards of appeal, and other bodies or officials authorized to exercise such powers and duties.
        (c) Such intergovernmental agreement may authorize
    
such joint plan commission to establish rules and procedures consistent with this Section as may be necessary to carry out the terms of such intergovernmental agreement.
    (3) Conflict resolution.
            (a) In order to become effective in matters
        
within its jurisdiction, a recommendation of any such joint plan commission pursuant to this Section shall require the approval set forth in the intergovernmental agreement. The intergovernmental agreement creating a joint plan commission shall establish procedures for the consideration and approval or disapproval by such municipalities of the joint plan commission's recommendation, and for the resolution between or among the municipalities of disputes or differences arising from any recommendation of the joint plan commission. Once effective, any such recommendation regarding rezoning, variations, or special uses shall require the adoption of a suitable ordinance by the corporate authorities of only that municipality within whose corporate limits lies the land and territory which is the subject of such recommendation.
            (b) Any party to such intergovernmental agreement
        
may by civil action, mandamus, injunction or other proceeding, enforce and compel performance of the agreement.
    This amendatory Act of 1996 shall not be a limitation on home rule powers.

65 ILCS 5/11-12.1-2

    (65 ILCS 5/11-12.1-2) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-12.1-2)
    Sec. 11-12.1-2. All bonds issued under the authority of this Division 12.1 shall bear interest at not more than the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, payable semi-annually, and may be sold by the corporate authorities in such manner as they may deem best in the public interest; provided, however, such bonds shall be sold at such price that the interest cost of the proceeds therefrom will not exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, based on the average maturity of such bonds and computed according to standard tables of bond values. Such bonds shall be payable solely and only from the revenues to be derived from loans of the proceeds thereof, as hereinafter provided, to owners of property within any area affected by a Conservation Plan approved by the municipality pursuant to the "Urban Community Conservation Act", as amended, or the "Urban Renewal Consolidation Act of 1961", as amended, and shall be secured by a pledge of such loans and all security appertaining thereto.
    Such bonds, when issued, shall have all of the qualities of negotiable instruments under the Law Merchant and the Uniform Commercial Code. Such bonds may bear such date, or dates, and may mature at such time, or times, not exceeding 30 years from their date or dates, and may be in such form, carry such registration privilege, may be payable at such place or places, may be subject to such terms of redemption, prior to maturity, with or without premium, as so stated on the face of the bond, and contain such terms and covenants, all as may be provided by ordinance authorizing the issuance of such bonds. Such bonds shall be executed by such officers as the corporate authorities shall designate in the ordinance. Any bonds bearing the signatures of officers in office at the date of signing thereof shall be valid and binding for all purposes, notwithstanding that before delivery thereof any or all such persons whose signatures appear thereon shall cease to be such officers.
    Each bond shall state upon its face that it is payable solely and only from the revenues to be derived from purchased loans of the proceeds thereof to the owners of property within any area affected by a Conservation Plan approved by the municipality pursuant to the "Urban Community Conservation Act", as amended, or the "Urban Renewal Consolidation Act of 1961", as amended, and shall state upon its face that it does not constitute an obligation of the city, village or incorporated town within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory limitation or provision.
    The amendatory Acts of 1971, 1972 and 1973 are not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.
