Minutes <br /> ELK GROVE VILLAGE PLAN COMMISSION <br /> Wednesday, May 5, 1982 <br /> The regularly scheduled meeting of the Plan Commission was called to <br /> order at 8:09 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5, 1982 in the Multi-Purpose Room <br /> of the Municipal Building, 901 Wellington Avenue. <br /> MEMBERS PRESENT: MEMBERS ABSENT: <br /> Glass, John R. , Chairman Cummins, Leah, Secretary <br /> Stangeland, Orrin J. Geinosky, Frederick C. <br /> Paliganoff, David J. <br /> Fulton, Clark <br /> Mullen, George E. <br /> STAFF PRESENT: <br /> Thomas F. Rettenbacher, Building Commissioner <br /> Jon P. Wildenberg, Administrative Assistant <br /> Parking Regulations <br /> Stangeland, Chairman of the Parking Regulations Subcommittee, <br /> presented the committee's recommendation to the Plan Commission. He <br /> prefaced his remarks by noting that the recommendation is the product <br /> of research and consideration of aspects such as: car sizing trends <br /> and changes in land use (e.g. ; increased retail use) . In addition, an <br /> extensive review of parking requirements in neighboring communities <br /> was conducted and discussions with the Greater O'Hare Association of <br /> Industry and Commerce were held. Paliganoff added that the research <br /> had developed a sound base of comparison from which to develop recom- <br /> mendations. <br /> The Parking Regulations Subcommittee recommends that no changes <br /> be made to the off-street and on-street parking requirements currently <br /> in effect. <br /> (A report from the Subcommittee and a compilation of Subcommittee <br /> meeting minutes are attached to and made a part of these minutes. <br /> Also attached is a letter from the Trammell Crow Company.) <br /> Stangeland pointed out that the Greater O'Hare Association of <br /> Industry and Commerce has advised that they have experienced no trouble <br /> with the renting of industrial buildings due to restrictive parking <br /> regulations. Stangeland noted that the 200 square foot requirement <br /> (10' x 20') for parking stalls does not appear restrictive in the least. <br /> In addition it is important to maintain stall width for ingress and <br /> egress. <br /> Fulton commented that the Zoning Ordinance Section 3.94(1) which <br /> states that "all off-street parking spaces shall have an area not less <br /> than 200 square feet" appears to be vague. Further, he suggested that <br /> an amendment to specify a 10' x 20' stall be considered as most other <br /> villages do specify stall size. Mullen voiced concurrence with Fulton's <br /> recommendation. <br /> Stangeland moved the Plan Commission recommend to the Judiciary, <br /> Planning and Zoning Committee that an amendment to the Elk Grove <br /> Village Zoning Ordinance, Section 3.94(1) , be considered which <br />
