Wildenberg, Administrative Assistant <br /> Public Hearing: Docket 82-2 Petition of the Village of Elk <br /> Grove Village for Text and Definition Amend- <br /> ments to the Zoning Ordinance regarding the <br /> installation of fences at double frontage <br /> corner lots (triple frontage lots) <br /> The Plan Commission, acting as a zoning commission, commenced <br /> Public Hearing proceedings to consider the petition of the Village of <br /> Elk Grove Village for Text and Definition amendments to the Elk Grove <br /> Village Zoning Ordinance. The amendments requested would permit residents <br /> bordered by three (3) streets (including one (1) major arterial and two (2) <br /> interior streets) to erect a fence in the frontage along a major arterial <br /> street. <br /> Thomas Rettenbacher, Building Commissioner, was sworn in by Secretary <br /> Cummins and presented information on behalf of the Village regarding the <br /> amendment requests. <br /> Rettenbacher began by stating that regulations dealing with fence <br /> location have existed mainly to maintain lines of sight for automobile <br /> and pedestrian traffic. in general, a 25 foot setback line (as measured <br /> from the property line) is required for this purpose. <br /> At various locations in the village there exist, or will exist (when <br /> future development is complete) lots which front on three distinct streets: <br /> one major arterial and two interior streets. As currently written, the <br /> Zoning Ordinance does not allow fences to be constructed beyond the 25 foot <br /> setback line on such lots in the frontage yard along a major arterial street. <br /> To date, five residents have petitioned the Zoning Board of Appeals for <br /> variations to construct a fence beyond the 25 foot setback line. In each <br /> case a variation was granted by the Zoning Board of Appeals. <br /> Rettenbacher also presented a map of lots in the Village which are <br /> fronted on three sides. <br />
