Village Planner Margo Eckerly presented a Power Point slideshow to the Zoning Board of
Appeals reviewing the Village Staff Report on the petitioner’s project:

Development Summary
The petitioner, Jeff Sophia, appeared before the Planning Commission in November 2003
and the Village Board in January 2004 for a Concept Review of a proposed retail center. As
a result of those meetings, Staff received favorable comments from both bodies regarding
the petitioner’s project, and the proposal to rezone the parcel from “M” Manufacturing to
“B2-PUD” Highway Service Business Planned Unit Development.

The petitioner’s parcel is located in a transitional area of the Village. It is anticipated that
Main Street will become a busy secondary arterial road, connecting the older downtown sub
area with the east side of the Village, which in addition to existing and pending residential
developments, includes institutional uses such as the Huntley Library, Municipal Complex,
and Shepherd of the Prairie Church. The parcel is highly visible, located at the intersection
of Huntley-Dundee Road and Main Street.

If the property were developed under its current Manufacturing classification, the parcel
could be developed within the regulations set forth in the Zoning Ordinance and would not
necessarily need Planning Commission or Village Board approval. While the Zoning
Ordinance does provide minimum aesthetic requirements (Landscape Ordinance and the
setback requirements), it does not regulate the architectural design, site plan design, or
material list. Due to the transitional location and high visibility of the parcel, Staff agrees
it would be more appropriate to consider other uses than manufacturing on the property.

If the petitioner’s request to rezone the parcel to “B2-PUD” is accepted, the parcel must be
developed as a Planned Unit Development and the architectural design, site plan, material
list, landscaping plan and sign plan would require the approval of the Planning Commission,
Zoning Board and the Village Board. The zoning classification of “B-2” Highway Service
Business was chosen for this development. However, as part of the PUD approval process,
Village Staff, the Advisory Boards and the Village Board may choose to restrict the list of
permitted uses.

In evaluating the petitioner’s request, Zoning Board of Appeals may recommend to the
Village Board of Trustees that a Special Use Permit (all PUD’s require a special use permit)
be issued subject to the standards from Section 156.092 of the Village of Huntley Zoning
Ordinance found below:


                    Zoning Board of Appeals Meeting Minutes≈ February 25, 2004 ≈ 2
Standards for Special Uses
1. The proposed use is necessary or desirable at the location involved to provide a service
   or facility, which will further the public convenience and contribute to the general
   welfare of the neighborhood or community.
2. The proposed use will not be detrimental to the value of the other properties or
   improvements in the vicinity.
3. The proposed use will comply with the regulations of the zoning district in which it is
   located and this chapter generally including, but not limited to, all lot yard and bulk
   regulations, parking and loading regulations, sign control regulations and flood plain
   regulations and all other applicable village ordinances.
4. The proposed use shall conform to any stipulations or conditions made a part of a
   special use permit issued for such use.

Village Planner Eckerly presented the original site plan and elevations along with Alternate
2 which is the most current plan. She also explained that the Village is considering re-
working the current intersection into a 4-way intersection.

On Monday, February 23, 2004, the Planning Commission unanimously voted to approve
this petition for recommendation to the Village Board.

With the conclusion of the PowerPoint presentation Village Planner Eckerly asked if the
members had any questions.

Member Manning asked if the new intersection would take some of the parking lot. Mike
Fleck, attorney for the petitioner, explained that only a small part of the parking lot would
be lost.

Member Fender asked how the County is involved in the decisions regarding curbing. Mike
Fleck explained that they would wait to see who has control of the road when construction
begins. Member Fender asked how the plan accounts for widening the road. Mike Fleck
said that plans for widening the road were taken into account in the original plan and they
may need a variance on the parking setback.

Member Fender asked if the location would have any drive-thrus. Mike Fleck answered no.

Mike Fleck advised that only two of the green notification cards sent out via certified mail
were not returned and presented proof that they had been delivered. He gave the green
cards to Village Planner Eckerly.

There were no comments from the audience.




                   Zoning Board of Appeals Meeting Minutes≈ February 25, 2004 ≈ 3
MOTION FOR APPROVAL of Petition No. 04-2.1 to recommend approval to the
Village Board for the rezoning of 11312 Dundee Road from “M” Manufacturing to
‘B2-PUD” Highway Service Business Planned Unit Development and the subsequent
amendment to the Village’s official Zoning Map, subject to the following conditions:
1. The petitioner will be required to follow the regulations set forth in the Village’s
   Zoning Ordinance. Any variation from the stated regulations, standards and
   ordinances must be clearly identified and zoning variations will be required as
   outlined in the Village of Huntley’s Land Use Ordinance (Section 156.123 and
   156.171).
2. If the parcel is rezoned to “B2-PUD”, the parcel must be developed as a Planned
   Unit Development and the architectural design, site plan, material list, landscaping
   plan and sign plan would require the approval of the Planning Commission,
   Zoning Board and the Village Board.
3. No change in use is approved and no building permits shall be granted prior to
   Village Board approval of a Preliminary Planned Unit Development and a Final
   Planned Unit Development for this parcel.
