The many advantages of a Channahon location include:

A wide variety of commercial, residential, and industrial uses are available throughout the Village. The zoning map provides a color-coded guide to zoning designations. Specific guidelines for each zoning classification can be found by reviewing the Village’s Municipal Code page (link).
Several maps on the topic of Comprehensive Land Use may be found within the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (PDF) which was passed on December 1, 2008.
The Village of Channahon is located within five townships in Will and Grundy Counties. Boundaries for other taxing bodies such as elementary and high school districts, the Channahon Park District, library districts, and fire districts vary throughout the Village. The taxing bodies affecting a particular parcel of property will depend on where that parcel is located.
To determine the tax rate for an individual parcel, you need to know the tax code in which the parcel is located. The tax code provides the total tax rate for all taxing bodies covering that area. If you live in Will County, you can check the Will County map here (link) to determine the tax code and total tax rate for your property. If you live in Grundy County, please refer to the Grundy County map here (link).
