I ftie tatleg Jarmstk USPS 580-360 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1989 VOLUME 28-NUMBER 46 OFFICE PHONE 812-669-6621 SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 25| per copy Planning Commission Minutes The regular monthly meeting of the Huntley Planning Commission was called to order at 7:30 pm by Chairman Wilmer Rohlwing. Those members of the board present were Jack Daum, Joe Gow, Ed Domagalski, Paul Mercer, Robert Schachtner and Ron Hahn. Also present were Mayor Dhamer and Building Inspector Schaller. Mr. Mercer moved to suspend reading of the minutes. Mr. Daum seconded. Motion carried. The order of business tonight was to be presented by Mr. Ted Mizen of the Huntley Hills Corporate Center with his revised conceptual plans. There were about fifty interested members of the public also in attendance. Mr. Mizen presented plans and explained areas. The airfield has been revised to nearly straight north/south with take-offs mostly to the south over the tollway and landing from the north. The runway has also been shortened to 6400 feet north/south and 3400 feet east/west. Mr. Mizen stated that aviation is becoming more and more interested in business. This would be the corporate environment for total business. This would be a state-of-the-art airfield and are looking at partner¬ ship with Kane County and Huntley for control. Illinois statutes stipulate that any town of population less than 5,000 cannot have jurisdic- tion, so seems right to form partnership. Mr. Mizen said they have everything in order now and are ready to form partnership. The offices and industrial park zoning completely engulf and buffer airfield. This allows marketability and flexibility for business. They would use "flex zoning" where the Village of Huntley would approve businesses as they come in. There would be a Huntley International Trade Center of 6 million square feet for import/export business. There would be about two 18 hole golf courses and/or a nine-hole along with major hotel, offices and businesses. Also, five office towers with 1.2 million square feet of office space. The impact of projection would be for 75-80,000 jobs. As far as the hotel, Hilton is interested but undecided right now. There are no flood plain areas all 2700 acres is very good soil. On the northern end of development would be up-scale residential on golf course with multi-family units ranging in price frpni $200-$250 price range. On the west side would be a couple of large lakes with single family up-scale housing with price levels not yet established but possibly in the range of $500-$7S0,000. Also, a couple of convales- cent care homes are being considered. A 200-250 bed hospital with medical center is being considered by tollway. They are working with IDOT for four-way entrance/exit ramps on Tollway. Mr. Mizen is looking for partnership with Village of Huntley also annexation to the Village and their approval of plans. Mr. Schachtner asked if east/west runway can be extended. Response - No law says it can't, but because of Landings they cannot go any further than 3400 feet. They do not want to ask for more. There is some air space conflicts, but are working on that now. They have ceiling of 3500 feet. Their purpose of an airport is for public use. Kane County was making plans for a general airport in northern part so it make sense to combine with this. This is not a commuter airport. It is under general aviation, public use airfield. Huntley would set hours of aircraft and number of aircraft. This is all in Huntley's school and fire district. This would make good economic sense for Huntley to annex all the way to Tollway. The Corporate Center will supply its own water. They have lEPA approval for five deep wells and also for waste water treatment. Construction drawings are in the works. They should be operational for waste water in 6-7 months and can then take on Kishwaukee Industrial Park waste water. They need it for their golf courses. Rick Pump of Huntley asked how many land contracts they have. Response - They have some signed contracts, some options. Mr. Pump also asked what whole time table on project is. Mr. Mizen said the project without airport, is about 3-7 years to complete, their projections were 10-20 years.

If delays are present, our pre-school program is available to help your child progress so that when the time for kinder¬ garten arrives he/she will be able to begin successfully with his/her academic career.
