EuntlE^ Jamsik USPS 580-360 THURSDAY, MAY 25, 1989 VOLUME 29-NUMBER 8 OFFICE PHONE 312-669-5621 SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 25c per copy Huntley Planning Commission Minutes Of May 8, 1989 The regular monthly meeting of the Huntley Planning Commission was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Wilmer Rohlwing. Those members of the board present were Ed Domagalski, Jack Daum, Joe Gow, Ron Hahn, Paul Mercer, and Robert Schachtner. Also present were Mayor Dhamer and Building Inspector Schaller. Minutes of the April 10, 1989, meeting were read. Mr. Daum moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Mr. Hahn, motion carried. The agenda was read. The first order of business was presented by Mr. Bruce Nagel. He was here before the board in November asking for annexation with an M-2 zoning for his 5.6 acres on Kreutzer Rd. The board at that time approved the annexation but did not act on the zoning since Village has not decided what it would like south of Kreutzer Road on Comprehensive Plan. Mr. Nagel is here seeking the M-2 zoning since he has some prospective buyers for the property if they can get M-2. Mr. Daum moved to grant Mr. Nagel the M-2 zoning for his . property on Kreutzer Road. Mr. Gow seconded. Mr. Mercer said that the board has not yet discussed what they want to do with that area, it is obvious that it is to be manufacturing. Roll call vote was as follows: Gow, aye; Domagalski, aye; Hahn, aye; Schachtner, aye; Daum, aye; Mercer, nay; Rohlwing, aye. There being six (6) ayes and one (1) nay, motion carried. The Mayor explained to Mr. Nagel that he will have to prepare an annexation agreement and go to the Zoning Board of Appeals. Kreutzer Road is being reditched and resurfaced - any adjoining property Bernat is going to expect some recapture from that. He advised him to have his attorney contact Attorney Kukla. The next order of business was presented by Bruce Sova of Repco. They have paid $145 hearing fees. This is for Phase 2 of Lot 1 of Kishwaukee Center between pump house and Dean Street for cul-de-sac. They are seeking approval of Preliminary Plat. Baxter ii Woodman sent letter dated 4/24/89, which was read. Mr. Sova said that Repco agrees to accept all points in letter or will work out with Baxter ii Woodman. The board suggested T-turnaround instead of the cul-de-sac. They plan to either subdivide or leave total, depends on what buyer or buyers they get. The length of cul-de-sac is 675 feet. Mr. Sova asked board to approve design of cul-de-sac and asked for variance of length. The Board would like sizes of lots shown. This is roughly 25 - 26 acres. Mr. Gow moved to accept concept of Repco's plans for Phase 2 with understanding that plans meet Baxter & Woodman's requirements in letter of 4/24/89. Mr. Domagalski seconded. Upon roll call there were seven (7) ayes and no (0) nays, motion carried. Mr. Daum moved to accept variance for length of cul- de-sac. Mr. Gow seconded. There was discussion as to reason for variance. Following such discussion, Mr. Gow withdrew his second. There being no other second on motion, motion died. The zoning ordinance is set for 500 foot cul-de-sacs. Mr. Sova believes concept of plan with cul-de-sac was approved several years ago on Preliminary Plan. The board suggested that when Repco comes back with subdivision plans, they would need to show their need for variance. The board wants to see more details of lots and doesn't want to just approve a cul-de-sac variance unless necessary. Mr. Sova said because of unusual shape of land the variance was necessary. Mr. Daum moved to table matter. Mr. Hahn seconded. Upon roll call there were seven (7) ayes and no (0) nays, motion carried. Next meeting is scheduled for June 12. Board suggested he get old plans to them.
