t � i <br /> Minutes <br /> Elk Grove Village Plan Commission <br /> February 7, 1979 <br /> The regular meeting of the Plan Commission was called to order by <br /> Acting Chairman Hauser at 7:35 P.M. on Wednesday, February 7, 1979 in <br /> the Council Chamber of the Municipal Building, 901 Wellington Avenue. <br /> MEMBERS PRESENT: STAFF PRESENT: <br /> Edward Hauser, Acting Chairman Richard M. Finn, <br /> John Glass Administrative Assistant <br /> James Petri Charles L. Durham, <br /> Orrin Stangeland Administrative Intern <br /> MEMBERS ABSENT: <br /> Leah Cummins <br /> George Mullen <br /> Proposed Revisions to the Schmidt Farm Final Plat <br /> Joseph Hanlon, Attorney, was present to represent the Stape <br /> Development Company. Hanlon was present to respond to the request <br /> received by the Village from the Cook County Department of Highways <br /> to investigate the feasibility of revising the Schmidt Farm final <br /> plat to create a better street pattern and connection between Section <br /> 22 and the Schmidt Farm. The revision would result in the realignment <br /> of Cardinal Lane so it would connect directly with Arkansas Drive in <br /> Section 22 South. <br /> Hanlon began the discussion by noting that the Staff report <br /> submitted by the Acting Village Engineer indicated that the request <br /> made by the County for the Cardinal Lane realignment was only a <br /> suggestion. <br /> Glass acknowledged Hanlon's statement by noting that the location <br /> specified by the County was one with a traffic flow problem. He <br /> added that he was not certain that creating a four-way at the location <br /> would solve the problem any better than a "T" intersection. <br /> Stangeland acknowledged Glass 's statement by stating that in his <br /> opinion discussion of the traffic flow question could only be addressed <br /> academically. He continued by stating that he favored the final plat <br /> as approved. However, he noted that his main concern was with the safe <br /> crossing of children at the subject intersection. <br /> Hanlon acknowledged Stangeland's concern. He continued by noting <br /> that there would be a pedestrian crossing problem no matter which type <br /> of intersection was installed. Hanlon then stated that a crossing <br /> guard would have to be assigned at the point where traffic stopped <br /> to help aleviate the danger to children. <br /> At that point, Stangeland moved to recommend approval of the <br /> final plat as presented by Stape Builders , Inc. Petri seconded the <br /> motion. All present voted "Aye". <br />
