Conserve Campton Hills!

The 2023 Village of Campton Hills Municipal Election is a big deal. The current administration is continuing to try to take away your property rights.

Exciting new people are running to bring Campton Hills back to its roots of simply being the safest and most beautiful place to live in Kane County.

Campton Hills has been semi-rural for generations. Horses, goats, chickens are part of the picturesque landscape here…

…perhaps you noticed that:

Your guests universally comment on how beautiful the area is. With little intervention, our citizens have built and maintained wonderful lots and housing stock…


Mike Tyrrell and the current Village Board are engaged in a project to re-regulate virtually every lot in our village. Re-zoning and the new zoning ordinance are the foundation of new zoning and code enforcement. President Tyrrell has said that he expects a flood of nuisance complaints that will require additional officers and that residents should prepare for a municipal tax!

Stop MicroManaging

Who wants a Village-wide HOA?
Campton Hills has been semi-rural for generations. Why mess with success?

Stop Excessive Zoning and Code Enforcement.

No one asked the Village to re-zone virtually all of us, seeking a foundation for future zoning, code and nuisance enforcement. Many of us have HOAs already. Does anyone want a Village-wide HOA too?

Past errors have resulted in some zoning errors that should be corrected. However, Mike Tyrrell is trying to redefine zoning rules for the entire Village and re-zone many of our lots.

A re-zoning effort like this will fundamentally define Campton Hills and what it looks like. It should only be considered in the context of prior plans and with as much CURRENT community input as possible.

Increase Transparency and Communication.

Let’s face it. Communication from the Village stinks. Documents are not posted, moved or deleted from the website. Mike Tyrrell decries social media, so the Village has no presence. The Community Counts newsletter is dedicated to self-promotion and is littered with errors.

Meetings of the Village Board and other committees/commissions should always be available on Zoom to anyone in the community.

The Village shares as little as possible and even manipulates the record. That is why the election of a genuinely professional Village Clerk is so essential!

Improve Relations With Other Units of Government.

Our residents were upset, but not surprised, that President Tyrrell broke off negotiations with Campton Township in July, leaving us with no highway services. This is typical of Tyrrell’s arrogant style when working with other units of government.

The Village of Campton Hills can only directly provide minimal services. Many other services, from highway maintenance, fire/EMS and 911 to water and sewer, are provided by other government entities.

Our Village President must work cooperatively with other government units while always seeking the best interests of our Village.


Before the current re-zoning campaign, Campton Hills was engaged in comprehensive and strategic planning for over a decade that was abandoned by the current administration. Learn more about it!


Implementing a new village-wide zoning ordinance and re-zoning hundreds of parcels is a big deal. From the Camiros plan to the 2013 and 2019 public sessions to the Steering Committee and Vision Plan…Learn how it went wrong.


Today, planning and zoning initiatives must emphasize sustainability. Campton Hills can be a model for other communities in supporting small-scale homesteading. Learn more more!

These plans should be thought of as snapshots of a moment in time. They were meant to be living documents that the community could use as the basis for future action. The…
