Finn, <br /> Leah Cummins, Secretary Administrative Assistant <br /> John Glass Charles L. Durham, <br /> George Mullen (departed at 8:30 p.m. ) Administrative Intern <br /> James Petri (arrived at 8:20 p.m.) <br /> Orrin Stangeland <br /> MEMBERS ABSENT: <br /> None <br /> Docket 78-10: Proposed Revision to the Planned Unit <br /> Development Located at Village on the Lake <br /> The petitioner, United Development Company, was requesting an <br /> amendment to the preliminary land use and zoning plat, and a Special <br /> Use Permit in order to revise a site plan for the construction of 144 <br /> manor homes in lieu of three five-story buildings with 282 proposed <br /> units . The 11 .6 acre parcel is located at the northwest corner of <br /> Biesterfield Road and Leicester Road. <br /> Hauser noted that the Staff had prepared and submitted a findings <br /> of fact for the review and approval of the Plan Commission. After <br /> extensive discussion, it was the consensus of the Plan Commission to <br /> approve the findings of fact as submitted by Staff subject to some minor <br /> revisions . The Plan Commission agreed that the findings of fact to be <br /> submitted to the Village Board would indicate the following: <br /> The Commission finds that the manor home development proposed <br /> by the petitioner is not compatible with the planned unit <br /> development for the Village on the Lake as presently implemented <br /> for the following reasons : <br /> 1 . The proposed manor home development would be incompatible <br /> with the abutting residential properties because of a <br /> dramatic difference in scale between the housing types . <br /> 2. The petitioner proposed to totally eliminate all the recrea- <br /> tional amenities that were originally provided for the <br /> subject property in the approved 1973 site plan. <br /> 3. Although the proposed site plan would decrease the height of <br /> the structures and the number of units per acre, it would <br /> greatly increase the building ground coverage thereby <br /> substantially decreasing the common open space available <br /> on the subject property. <br /> At that point, the Commission directed Staff to send the findings <br /> of fact to the Village Board for consideration. <br />
