Continued on page 4 Bigger is Not Always Better There is a strong movement in II. toward consolidating small school districts into larger districts. But smaller may be better after all, ac¬ cording to a University of Illinois-Chicago professor who conducted a study of 500 school districts in New Jersey.

Walberg told an audience of school board members and administrators Sunday (Nov. 23) in Chicago. The session was one of 65 discussions on a wide range of topics offered at the Joint Annual Conferene of the Illinois Assoc, of School Boards, Illinois Assoc, of School Administrators, and Illinois Assoc, of School Business Offi¬ cials.

The Chief will ask them to do so when Kiley Drive is put through. Apparently Outlook has an option on the back piece of land that would , adjoin Kiley. Delores Fox lives on the corner of Grove and Main and is present at this meeting requesting a change in zoning to R-3. She has a corner lot which is 132 x 124.5 and 69 x 113.10. Her frontage is 69 feet on Grove. They would eventually like to convert their home to a two-family dwelling. The vacant lot behind them is still owned by Weltzien." Upon reviewing, the board finds that there is plenty of square footage, 11>00, but the frontage for an R-3 is supposed to be 70 feet. Her garage is big enough for 3 vehicles. She is requesting a change from R-2 to R-3. She has three lower entrances and could make a fourth. According to the Ordinances she meets all necessary requirements found on page 45. Mr. Daum moved that the Huntley Planning Commission recommend to the Huntley Zoning Board the approval of the request by Mr. and Mrs. James Fox concerning their property on the corner of Grove and Main Streets, from R-2 to R-3, with a variance for the lot width of 69 feet, Mr. Hansmann seconded. Upon roll call there were five (5) ayes and no (0) nays. Motion carried. Chairman Rohlwing then brought up the subject of a recent newspaper article which stated a need for change in some ordinances and that new developers of five acres or more would have to meet with the School Board and Park Board and then Planning Commission and Zoning Board before getting approval from Village Board. The Planning Commission felt this would discourage hopeful developers and that there are sufficient ordinances to cover the needs of the School Board and Park District. The next meeting is scheduled for December 8, 1986. Mr. Hahn moved to adjourn the meeting. Mr. Hansmann seconded. Motion carried, meeting adjourned at 9:05 p.m. Nancy L. Dvorak, Sec.
