Vanderweel, Building Commissioner <br /> Village Trustee <br /> Docket 79-5: Calkins'' Petition for Rezoning <br /> Richard Jones, Attorney, Curt Mankoff, Bob Allen and Robert Calkins <br /> were present to represent the petitioner. The petitioner was requesting <br /> rezoning from I-2 (Generalized Industrial District) to B-3 (Automotive <br /> Business District) for a private credit card operation to dispense gasoline. <br /> The rezoning request was for the property located on the south side of <br /> Landmeier Road about half way between Lively Boulevard and Tonne Road. <br /> Jones began by presenting four exhibits, including authorization <br /> to act on behalf of the owners of the property, a Plat of Survey for <br /> the property, a Plot Plan, and a list of Villages in which private <br /> gasoline pumps are operated. <br /> Mankoff stated that the proposed use of the property would fill an <br /> important void in the community by fueling small and medium sized fleets <br /> of vehicles. He added that the facility would be attractive, safe, and <br /> inspected on a daily basis. Mankoff noted that all types of vehicles <br /> would use the facility and that it would be open at all hours. <br /> Geinosky inquired as to why this type of use was being proposed for <br /> the property. Mankoff replied that the shape of the property is such <br /> that no other use is feasible. Geinosky then asked if the petitioner <br /> had conducted any traffic studies in the area. Mankoff responded that <br /> the proposed facility would not generate any large amounts of traffic. <br /> Geinosky continued by questioning whether a deacceleration lane <br /> would be constructed by the petitioner on Landmeier Road. Mankoff <br /> responded that the developers would comply with all Village requirements. <br /> Glass expressed concern that the facility would attract large <br /> numbers of vehicles during peak hours; resulting in traffic backups and <br /> congestion. Allen predicted that the facility would draw approximately <br /> 125 vehicles during an average day. He added that most of the vehicles <br /> would be in the area as part of their normal traffic pattern and that <br /> the credit card system is the most efficient way to dispense gasoline. <br />
