Elk Grove Village Appoints New Community Development Manager

Elk Grove Village officials have promoted Jared D. Polony to the new director of community development, following the retirement of longtime director Mary Jo Pye.

Polony, a community development department employee for 12 years, will oversee private development in the northwest suburban community while working with residents, businesses and contractors. Officials said he brings a technical and hands-on approach to enforcing codes, standards and leadership.

Polony has been involved in a number of initiatives, including the development of the Elk Grove Technology Park, the adoption of village codes to better improve public and private facilities, and the implementation of zoning law amendments to create a harmonious community, according to officials.

He started his new job on March 21, following the retirement of Pye, who worked for the village for more than 30 years.
