PROJECT REVIEW GROUP REPORT TO: ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS PREPARED BY: Tom Farace, AICP Senior Planner HEARING DATE: April 7, 2010 DATE PREPARED: March 31, 2010 CASE NUMBER: Z1002-06 TITLE: Top Notch Tumbling / 654 Albion Avenue / Special Use for a Gymnasium BACKGROUND INFORMATION Petitioner: Phillip Q. Barnes Address of Petitioner: Top Notch Tumbling Inc. 106 E. Oak Street Lake in the Hills, IL 60156 Status of Petitioner: Proposed Lessee Owner of Parcel: Nat Scalfani Address of Owner: 1513 Wright Boulevard Schaumburg, IL 60193 Existing Zoning: M-1 Manufacturing District Existing Land Use: Multi-Tenant Building Requested Action: Approval of a Special Use for a Gymnasium [Title 15, Chapter 154, Section 154.188 (C)(6) of the Zoning Ordinance] ANALYSIS Staff Discussion: The petitioner requests approval of a special use for a gymnasium in a multi-tenant building on Albion Avenue. The proposed facility will occupy approximately 4,100 square feet, and will provide tumbling classes and training for children. As proposed, classes will last one hour with a maximum of five students per class. Most classes will be held during late afternoon and evening weekday hours and on weekends. In most cases, parents will drop their children off for the class and will not stay during class times. The proposed use will have different peak hours as compared to the other uses in the building, and is similar to approved training facilities like the SAA cheerleading facility on National Parkway (Case Z0804-02) and Nate’s Premium Athletic facility on Lunt Avenue (Case No. Z0909-07) which are also located in multi-tenant office/warehouse buildings. While the proposed recreational use will be located in a building with office and warehouse uses, staff does not believe the proposed use will have negative affects on the other uses in the building from a noise, parking, or service perspective. Additionally, the site is designed with two curb cuts along Albion Avenue, with the majority of the parking spaces located on the west side of the building and adjacent to the office entrances serviced by one curb cut, and truck docks and overhead doors located on the east side of the building and serviced by a separate curb cut. Therefore, automobile and truck traffic does not intermix on the site.

Surrounding Zoning and Land Uses: North: M-1 Manufacturing District / Fed Ex Distribution Center South: M-1 Manufacturing District / Jorgensen Steel East: M-1 Manufacturing District / Office-Warehouse Building West: M-1 Manufacturing District / The Ink Well Compatibility with Surrounding Land Uses: As the adjacent tenant spaces are used for office, warehouse, or industrial purposes primarily during the day, staff believes that the proposed use will not have any negative affects on the adjacent tenants or surrounding uses. Comprehensive Plan Designation: The subject property is designated for industrial and industrial/office uses according to the Village Comprehensive Plan. This designation is appropriate for a variety of office or manufacturing uses. Staff does not believe that there will be negative affects on the existing building if the special use is approved.
