Minutes <br /> ELK GROVE VILLAGE PLAN COMMISSION <br /> Architectural Design Control Subcommittee <br /> Date: July 23, 1985 <br /> Place: 1698 Gibson Drive <br /> Elk Grove Village <br /> The meeting was called to order at 7:15 p.m. <br /> Members Present: Members Absent: <br /> Orrin Stangeland, Subcommittee Chairman None <br /> Fred Geinosky <br /> Dave Paliganoff <br /> The need to establish and control standards of architectural <br /> design is well recognized. Basic controls on design, color, materials, <br /> siting, and elevation are necessary to avoid monotonous appearance. <br /> Such design controls should apply to both single-family and multi- <br /> family homes. Design variation of detail, form, and siting provide <br /> needed visual interest. <br /> There is no intention to control the interior designs <br /> of residences, nor is the requirement for architectural variation <br /> intended to restrict design continuity or harmony. Individual <br /> homeowner's landscaping can provide visual interest but is not <br /> deemed a significant factor in avoidance of design repetition. <br /> A tour by this subcommittee of new and existing residential <br /> construction in the Village revealed that acceptable levels of <br /> variation were best achieved where significantly different front <br /> elevations were available for identical models and where controls <br /> were imposed to space identical models substantially apart from <br /> each other. <br /> To achieve the goal of good architectural design controls, <br /> the subcommittee considered two possible options: <br /> Option 1 : Architectural Design Control Ordinance. Adoption <br /> of an ordinance similar to those of local communities. <br /> Such an ordinance would establish standards required <br /> of all developers. <br /> Option 2. Review of Architectural Design Plans. A review <br /> prior to issuance of building permits. Such review <br /> would be by the Plan Commission (or an Architectural <br /> Design Committee) on a developer's proposed plan. <br /> The developer would be required to demonstrate <br /> how monotonous design is avoided in the submitted <br /> plans. <br /> Unresolved issues included whether such controls should <br /> apply to all residential builders or only developers of multi-lot <br /> parcels. Also under question was whether such controls should <br /> apply to remodeling or to developments under construction. <br /> ms <br />
