What an experience that was. We also had extra time to view the many attractions the museum had to offer. After the museum, we all piled into a cab (all 7 of us) and headed to Michigan to right) Chris Krush, Ken LaFave, led enjoy a visit to Avenue to see the John Hancock Bldg., the Water Tower Place, and all the Christmas lights on the Magnificent Mile. All enjoyed shopping, taking pictures and eating lunch at the Rockin' McDonalds on Ontario Street. The view from the observation deck at the Hancock Tower was okay, considering the visibility was only 3 miles. When we returned we all agreed that we had a great time and that the city was a great place to visit. We all hope to return in the spring for a Cub's game at Wrigley Field.

He then requested that his 14th Addition, Parcel #3 be changed to M2 from the original annexation zoning of R4. He presented a preliminary plan, attorney Kukla stated that the Board would be required as follows: 1) approve the preliminary plan as presented and 2) allow an amendment to the zoning from R4 to M2. After questioning by Trustee Borowicz, a motion was made to approve the preliminary plan as presented of Bakley's 14th addition by Trustee Hoeft, seconded by Trustee Wicke. Trustee Greve asked if the Board could approve the final plat even though capacity at the treatment plant was overextended.

Attorney Kukla questioned if a variance was not needed. After discussion it was found Mr. Bakley did indeed need a variance and Trustee Wicke stated that the Board would be made award of any objections when Mr. Bakley went for his variance.
