Building Commissioner <br /> John Glass Robert Callahan, <br /> Thomas Hamilton Building Supervisor <br /> Edward Hauser Richard M. Finn, <br /> James Petri Administrative Assistant <br /> William Wesley <br /> Docket 77-5: Midway Motor Lodge <br /> Mr. David Callies, Attorney, and Mr. Stan Johnston of Draper and <br /> Kramer, were present to represent Midway Motor Lodge in their petition <br /> to establish a• motor lodge, restaurant, banquet rooms and meeting rooms. <br /> The proposed establishment is to be located south of Old Higgins Road, <br /> north of Oakton Street and on the west side of Busse Road at 80 Busse <br /> Road on SDK property. <br /> Mr. Callies began by stating that the finding of fact statement <br /> prepared by Mr. Finn was acceptable except for two points . First, the <br /> finding should state that the petitioner would be allowed to construct <br /> the motel at a height not to exceed three stories or 35 feet. Mr. Callies <br /> made mention that this agreement was made with the Commission very early <br /> in the deliberations. Secondly, Mr. Callies took issue with the loading <br /> space requirements.

Hamilton agreed <br /> and stated that the proposed facility should only be required to furnish <br /> two loading docks . However, each loading dock should meet Village <br /> requirements . Shannon concurred with Hamilton's suggestion and noted <br /> that the proposed development would not demand the four loading spaces <br /> required by Village Ordinance. Mr. Rettenbacher also agreed with the <br /> suggestion. <br /> Next, Hauser took issue with the finding of fact prepared by Mr. <br /> Callies . Hauser stated that the wording of Section C was misleading and <br /> he suggested that the word "chronically" be withheld. Callies <br /> stated that the word "chronically":-was used for a lack of a more dis- <br /> criptive word. Shannon with the concurrence of the Commission, directed <br /> that the word "chronically" (in Section C) be dropped. <br /> Hauser next addressed the Commission and stated that he felt that <br /> if the Commission members were concerned that 393 parking spaces were <br /> not enough, they should request more parking. Hauser contended that 393 <br /> spaces were not enough in his opinion. Shannon noted Hauser's concern <br /> but suggested that in this situation there were no exact guidelines as <br /> to what would be the optimal parking requirement. Shannon further suggested <br />
