ZONING BOARD APPROVES DEAN'S - SAYS NO TO FOX VALLEY GREASE The Huntley Zoning Board of Appeals by unanimous vote turned down the request for zoning by Fox Valley Grease last Wednesday, September 6th. This was a continued Zoning Hearing from the previous week. None of the petitioners nor their legal representatives were present. At the August 30th meeting of the Zoning Board, Midwest Well withdrew their request for annexation and zoning change until the Village could build a well which could adequately provide water pressure for their sprinkling system. The Board recommended the approval of the zoning for Plote Development and Industrial Park seeking annexation to the Village. The proposal was approved by a motion by Henry Marlowe 2nd by Milford Brown. The vote was Marlowe - aye; Brown - aye; Weisneth - Aye; Jack Freund - aye; Art Wicke - aye; and Ed Williams - nay. Motion carried five to one. The residential portion of the development will be divided into three sections -19 Single Family units which will border the Huntley Cemetaries and the Huntley Highland subdivision; 64 duplexes in 34 buildings with an R4 zoning to be immediately south of the single family R2 zoned portion of the development; 264 units (6 flatsi consisting of 2 and 1 bedroom units. The remainer of the land in thi proposed annexation will be used for an Industrial Park parts o< which are requesting M2 zoning with a small section along Route 4' zoned B3 for commercial use. Access to the residential area of tht development is proposed from Dean Street and Fredericks Way in the proposed Huntley Highlands subdivision. Access to the Industrial Park is proposed from County Line Road and a spur off the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad. It is estimated that the development will not be completed for ten or more years and that il approved by the Village Board it would increase the population of Huntley by 709 people. A spokesman for the develojjer stated that this would increase the number of students in the school grades K-S by 85 students based on figures from the Illinois School Consulting Service. Most of these students would come from the R2 Single Family dwellings with the least students coming from the six flat apartments. Dr. Bunt. Superintendent of Huntley Schools, was present at the meeting as an objector. Dr. Bunt stated that the School Board was concemed that there was no Village Ordinance regarding donation towards the school and reminded those present that the SLhool was in deficit spending at this time to the tune of $500,000 for which a cash bond had to be floated. He said that the figures from 80-100 additional students was probably accurate and commented the school district needed "up front money" until they can get tax money. Through their attomey, John Cowlin, the developer offered donations to the school of $650 per single family unit, $725 per duplex building (two units) and $825 per six flat multiple family unit dwelling provided that this is what a proposed school donation ordinance stipulated. It is estimated that each of the single family units will sell for $70,000 each, the duplexs for $97,000 each an 1 the six flats for $210,000 apiece. Father Day was present at the meeting and asked that a buffer zone be alloted between the development and the cer iries to decrease the threat of vandalism. At present there are two industries proposed for the Industrial part ofthe development. The first is a fifteen acre tract for Dean's Food to be used as a complete distribution center. A spokesman for the company stated that Dean's products would be shipped into this center from various plant in the area to be distributed all over the country by truck and rail. Mr. Jim Smith, attomey for dean's Food, stated that annexation to the Village was essential for the development. It was also brought out at the meeting that Dean's is considering other sites in Marengo, Belvidere and others for this center. The other portion for the Industrial Park is for use by the Des Plaines Lumber Company as storage facilities. Several people objected to the proposed development due to the population density ofthe six flats and the effect on the environment. The Board expressed concem over the fact that a development of this size might make it necessary for Huntley to increase the size of the newly completed sewer disposal plant at an estimated cost of one half million dollars. It was brought out that by the time this expansion would be necessary the cost could well be one million dollars. The Village Engineer said that Huntley would have a very low rating to receive a federal or state grant as the sewer disposal plant has just been completed using federal and state funds. It was brought out that the contractor would put in the sewer and water mains for the development the cost to be covered by hook ups. Before the final vote a recommendation was read by the Palnning Commission to approve the development. The Planning Commission expressed concera over the multi units. LIONS CLUB MEETING SEPT.12TH The Huntley Lions Gub will resume their fall meetings on Sept. 12 at the American Legion Hall, with President Dennis Rudsinski presiding.
