r .t <br /> MINUTES <br /> ELK GROVE VILLAGE PLAN COMMISSION <br /> September 7, 1977 <br /> The regular meeting of the Plan Commission was called to order <br /> by Chairman William Shannon at 8:01 P.M. on Wednesday, September 7, 1977 <br /> in the Council Chamber of the Municipal Building, 901 Wellington Avenue, <br /> Elk Grove Village. <br /> MEMBERS PRESENT: MEMBERS ABSENT: <br /> William Shannon, Chairman James Petri <br /> Leah Cummins STAFF PRESENT: <br /> John Glass Richard M. Finn, <br /> Thomas Hamilton Administrative Assistant <br /> Edward Hauser <br /> William Wesley -- — <br /> Village Attorney meeting with the Plan Commission <br /> Chairman Shannon asked that the scheduled Public Hearing be delayed <br /> so that the Commission could address several questions to George <br /> Knickerbocker, Village Attorney. Shannon noted that several issues <br /> had arisen from previous Public Hearings , and the Commission wished to <br /> discuss the issues with Knickerbocker. The first issue that Shannon <br /> addressed concerned the parking requirements for the proposed Midway <br /> Motel . Shannon asked Knickerbocker if he was familiar with the problem. <br /> Knickerbocker stated that he had discussed the issue with Rettenbacher <br /> and it appeared that several aspects of the Midway parking requirements <br /> were in a "grey area" of the Zoning Ordinance. Knickerbocker qualified <br /> his statement by suggesting that normally the Ordinance would be explicit <br /> in the numbers of parking spaces required for a facility. However, the <br /> Midway facility which encompasses a restaurant, lounge, motel and banquet <br /> rooms is different from a normal facility. Knickerbocker stated that <br /> the Zoning Ordinance was specific on the number of parking spaces that <br /> would be required for the motel rooms and the restaurant and lounge <br /> facilities; however, the meeting rooms were subject to interpretation <br /> since the ordinance was vague on that particular use within the overall <br /> facility. <br /> Shannon agreed that the parking requirements for Midway were open <br /> to interpretation. Knickerbocker noted Shannon's comment, and Knickerbocker <br /> state that if the Commission believed that the Zoning Ordinance was not <br /> specific, in regard to the parking requirements , then the Commission could <br /> base their findings on their interpretation. Knickerbocker noted that <br /> the Plan Commission could recommend special types of conditions for Special <br /> Use permits; however, he noted that specific aspects of the Zoning <br /> Ordinance would govern on a general type of interpretation. <br /> Shannon next pointed out that the Zoning Ordinance did not adequately i <br /> define "maximum capacity". Shannon stated that the Building Commissioner <br /> defined maximum capacity by using the square footage allowed by the <br /> Fire Code. Knickerbocker agreed that the ordinance was vague on the <br /> issue, but he suggested that by using the Fire Code's definition of <br /> maximum capacity, it would be easier to defend in court. Wesley asked <br /> if the Commission could accept the petitioner's calculations for the <br /> i <br /> I <br /> I <br />
