MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING
OF THE PLAN COMMISSION AND ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS
FOR THE CITY OF COUNTRYSIDE, IL
HELD IN COUNCIL CHAMBERS ON TUESDAY, MAY 3, 2011

Chairman Fullmer called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m. Secretary Lube called the Roll of Members physically present:

PRESENT: Chairman Richard Fullmer, Jr., Secretary Robert Lube, Mr. Jim Jasinski, Ms. Tina Grotzke, Mr. Richard Toth, Mr. Crecencio Gonzalez IV, Mr. Mark Benson,

ABSENT: Mr. Charles Stoub, Mr. Daniel Moss.

ALSO PRESENT: Atty. Jeff Stein, Ald. Pondelicek, CDP Swanson.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES

The first order of business was approval of the minutes of the April 6, 2011 and April 14, 2011 meetings. Ms. Grotzke moved to approve the minutes as presented, seconded by Mr. Benson and carried unanimously.

Chairman Fullmer stated the Rules of Proceeding for the hearing before the Plan Commission – Zoning Board of Appeals will follow a strict order of presentation. A sign-in sheet for interested persons is located at the podium. This hearing is being recorded. Please silence all cell phones and pagers.

PUBLIC HEARING RE: 5608 LEITCH AVENUE

Chairman Fullmer read the public hearing notice to consider a building-related variance to portions of the Municipal Code (Building Regulations) as follows:

To consider a fence variance to Title 8, Building Regulations, Section 8-3-1: Fences, Shrubs, Hedges and Decorative Structures: to consider permitting a fence which provides 30% permeability instead of the required 50% standard set forth in Section 8-3-1 E-1A.

The applicant is the property owner, Mr. John Mazzei, at the real estate commonly known as 5608 Leitch Avenue, Countryside, IL 60525.

Mr. Toth moved to open the Public Hearing in this matter, seconded by Mr. Jasinski and carried unanimously. Since this is a building related item, no publication or Proof of Notice is required. Mr. & Mrs. Mazzei were sworn in by Chairman Fullmer.

CDP Bryan Swanson made the Staff presentation. He stated that there is a great difference between building standards and zoning standards. Safety is a primary factor in building construction; zoning issues are very specific in reflecting community values and land use. In 2010 the City Council passed the fence ordinance stating that any fence on residential property must have 80% permeability. That ordinance was recently amended to permit 50% permeability in fences that are four feet high; anything higher must follow the original standard.

The property at 5608 Leitch Avenue seeks a variance to allow a four-foot high fence with 30% permeability to light and air rather than the required 50%. The property is zoned R-1 single family; the estimated acreage is .45. The applicant John Mazzei is the property owner. The aerial photo shows a single family home with detached garage surrounded by other single-family structures. The fence permit was provided on October 6, 2010; the fence is needed to protect his family – two small children and their large dog. The permit was for a four-foot wooden picket fence of 158 linear feet. Per the permit, the fence would comply with the 80% permeability pattern to both light and air. The discrepancy was not noted until time of the final building inspection. On March 9, 2011, the City Council voted to amend the fence ordinance to allow for 50% permeability. The applicant requests a variance to construct a fence which does not meet the 50% permeability requirement. Photos of the proposed fence were provided. That concludes the Staff presentation.

Mr. Mazzei stated that the cedar fence is 1×4′ boards with 3-4 between boards. Mr. Gonzalez asked who changed the original design. Mr. Mazzei did not authorize the change. It was made by the fence company – America’s Back Yard of Joliet; the fence has 30% permeability. Discussion re: small children getting their heads stuck between the slats. Board members agreed it is a well-constructed fence and looks good. Mr. Ed Pilarski, 10735 Maplewood, has no objection to the fence; they did a good job. There were no comments by other interested parties. Mr. Mazzei had no closing statement. Mr. Gonzalez moved to close the evidentiary portion of the hearing, seconded by Mr. Toth and carried unanimously.

Ms. Grotzke moved to approve the variation from the 50% permeability requirement of the City Code to allow a four-foot fence with 30% permeability at the property commonly known as 5608 Leitch Avenue, Countryside, IL as presented, seconded by Mr. Lube and carried by Roll Call vote – 5/2/2. This matter will come before the City Council at its Regular Meeting on May 25, 2011.

PUBLIC HEARING RE: 5754 SOUTH KENSINGTON AVENUE

Chairman Fullmer read the Public Hearing Notice to consider a building related variance to portions of the Municipal Code (Building Regulations) as follows:

To consider a fence variance to Title 8, Building Regulations, Section 8-3-1: Fences, Shrubs, Hedges and Decorative Structures: to consider permitting a fence which provides 25% and 0% permeability instead of the required 50% standard set forth in Section 8-3-1 E-1A.

The applicants are the property owners, Mr. Janusz Gryglak and Mrs. Catherine McNulty, at the real estate commonly known as 5754 South Kensington Avenue, Countryside, IL 60525.

Mr. Toth moved to open the Public Hearing in this matter, seconded by Mr. Jasinski and carried unanimously. Both applicants were sworn in by Chairman Fullmer.

CDP Bryan Swanson presented the Staff report. The above property is zoned R-1 single family; estimated acreage is .48. The owners are requesting a building related variance to allow a fence with 25% and 0% permeability – basically a privacy fence in the rear yard — instead of the required 50%. The property is located in a residential neighborhood. The aerial photo of the property indicates a single family home and detached garage. The fence is needed to protect the dogs and to keep vermin off the property. The total size of the fence is 139 linear feet. Approximately 65′ of the fence will be a shadowbox style of construction, providing 0% visibility; 74′ will provide 25% permeability. The applicant requests a variance to construct the fence which does not comply with the 50% permeability requirement. Photos of the proposed fence were presented. That concludes the Staff presentation.

Mr. Gryglak stated that he needs the fence to control the animals, three dogs, German Shepherd weighing 85 pounds, a black Lab and a visiting dog that stays over occasionally. He has no desire to get electronic fencing. The street is very busy with walkers; the dogs bark a lot; both dogs are very vocal. There were no questions from the audience. There was no closing statement. Mr. Toth moved to close the evidentiary portion of the hearing, seconded by Mr. Benson and carried by unanimous voice vote.

Ms. Grotzke moved to approve the variance from 50% permeability requirement of the City Code to construct a four-foot fence with 0% and 25% permeability on the property commonly known as 5754 South Kensington Ave, as presented, seconded by Mr. Toth; motion denied by Roll Call vote – 2/5/2. This recommendation will go before the City Council at its next Regular Meeting on May 25, 2011.

The applicant is Mr. Louis Ayala, property owner, at the real estate commonly known as 9640 – 56th St., Countryside, IL

Mr. Swanson spoke to the general contractor, Mr. Skik, who represents Mr. Ayala. He requested that this matter be continued to the June 7, 2011 meeting. Mr. Jasinski moved to approve continuation of this matter to next month’s meeting, seconded by Mr. Toth and carried unanimously.

PUBLIC HEARING RE: 6502-6504 JOLIET ROAD

Chairman Fullmer read the Public Hearing Notice which was published on April 14, 2011 in The Doings Newspaper.

Consideration of a special use request to establish an adult day care facility pursuant to portions of the City of Countryside, Il Municipal Code (Zoning Ordinance):

Consideration of a special use pursuant to Section 10-6A-2 (Special Uses) Title 10, Chapter 6 in the Municipal Code to permit an adult day care facility.

The applicants are Ms. Valerie Palencia and Ms. Alexandra Sulik, business owners.

Mr. Benson moved to open the Public Hearing in this matter, seconded by Mr. Toth and carried unanimously. Both applicants were sworn in by Chairman Fullmer. The Building Department has received the required Proof of Notice. CDP Mr. Swanson presented the Staff report. He stated that this small business start up will provide a needed service in Countryside and the surrounding area. The property is zoned B-1 Retail; estimated acreage is .59. The property owner is The Oak Forest Investment Group. Applicants are Alexandra Sulik and Valerie Palencia. They require a special use to establish an adult day care facility at 6502-6504 Joliet Road.

The property is located at the SW corner of Stalford Road and Joliet Road in Countryside surrounded by other commercial uses and residential properties to the south. Adult day care use is only allowed by special use permit in Countryside. The approximate size of the facility is 2,780 square feet. Proposed Hours of operation are from 7 am to 7 pm M-F with some weekends. The number of adults cared for per day cannot exceed 40. There will be no overnight care offered; all customers will either be dropped off at the facility or picked up by the company van. It will serve as a recreational area for the seniors along with socializing, some food and light exercise.

The property is a two-story mixed-use office building. The site provides 30 regular parking spaces, 3 garage spaces and 6 on-street spaces; total parking is 39. The building is divided into Unit 1, 2,800 s.f. – 14 parking spaces; Unit 2, 1,400 s.f. – 7 spaces; Unit 3 & 4 each have 400 s.f. with 2 spaces required. City Code requires one parking space for each employee (7 proposed employees); 3 spaces for visitors; 1 space for the van; total parking requires 11 regular spaces. The rendering shows off-street parking on Stalford Road that was previously approved for use by the City. That concludes the presentation.

Board members questioned both individuals Ms. Palencia is currently a home health care provider; she stated that many clients cannot afford nursing home care; this service will enable seniors to remain in their homes. Ms. Sulik is a nurse practitioner; she sees patients in their homes; double income families cannot provide daily care for relatives living at home.

This recommendation will go before the City Council at its next regular meeting on May 25, 2011.

PUBLIC HEARING RE: 6500 JOLIET ROAD

Chairman Fullmer read the Notice of Public Hearing for the 6500 Joliet Road application which was published on April 14, 2011 in The Doings Newspaper:.

Consideration of a mixed use to establish a hand car wash and detail business and an automobile accessories business to portions of the City of Countryside, Il Municipal Code (Zoning Ordinance):

Consideration of a special use to Section 10-6C-2 (Special Uses), Title 10, Chapter 6 in the Municipal Code to permit a hand car wash and detail facility.

To consider a variance to Section 10-10-5 B (Schedule of Parking Requirements), Title 10, Chapter 10 in the Municipal Code to permit a hand car wash and detail facility which does not meet the minimum parking requirements;

To consider a variance to Section 10-10-5 B (Schedule of Parking Requirements), Title 10, Chapter 10 in the Municipal Code to permit an auto accessories business which does not meet the minimum parking requirements.

The applicants are Mr. Edward Screens, Jr., business owner of I-Detail hand car wash & detail, and Mr. Sam Haleem, business owner of Automotive Concepts. The property is owned by the Heat Engineering Company at 6500 Joliet Road, Countryside, IL 60525.

Mr. Toth moved to open the Public Hearing in this matter, seconded by Mr. Lube and carried unanimously. The applicant, Ed Screens, was sworn in by Chairman Fullmer.

Proof of Notice has been received by the Building Department. CDP Swanson presented the Staff report. The existing business owner wishes to remain in Countryside but had to vacate the premises at 6420 Joliet Road. Mr. Haleem is not considering moving his business, Automotive Concepts, to 6500 Joliet Road. As a result the last parking variance for Mr. Haleem will not be considered tonight.

The property is zoned B-3 service and wholesale; estimated acreage is .57; the property owner is Heat Engineering Corp., an HVAC business with an industrial use and commercial office space. The applicant is Ed Screens owner of I-Detail. He requests a special use to establish a hand car wash and detail facility. Heat Engineering is considering moving out of the City; their property is on the market. The property is along Joliet Road; to the east is the only single-family zoned property left on Joliet Road; to the south are other single family properties; the remaining lots are commercially zoned properties. The property is approximately 25,000 s.f. and contains an 11,000 s.f. commercial/industrial building. Roughly 2,736 s.f. of that building are reserved for offices. Approximately 8,624 s.f. will be used for the hand car wash and detail operation.

The parking ordinance strictly states that Automobile Laundry service uses must provide at least 30 stacking spaces for each wash rack plus one parking space for each employee; 36 spaces are required per code. The existing site has 9 striped regular parking spaces with the potential to add 15 spaces in the rear and side of the property (not currently striped). One letter of concern asked for an 8’3 fence separating the residential property adjacent to and east of 6500 Joliet Road. That concludes the Staff presentation.

Mr. Screens is considering purchasing the Heat Engineering property; they are a family-run business and are downsizing. Due to the economy, they don’t need that large of a building. Mr. Screens will be the only occupant. He employs six people; hours of operation are M-F 8 am to 6 pm. Sat. 8 am to 3 pm. The car hand wash and detail use are only allowed by special use permit. He has been in Countryside since 2003; the location is perfect and close to major highways. He grew up in the area and knows many people and businesses and wishes to remain in Countryside. He plans to have a car wash and three stations. He has many plans for the building and will get architect drawings for the building interior. Cars remain in the building for detailing then they go to the showroom. Customers pick up cars also; those will remain in the building as well. He estimates at least 15 parking spaces in the rear of the building and 5 more along the side. The building will hold 25 cars inside. Board members are concerned with car stacking problems; cars can never be stacked on Joliet Road. Board requested a rendering and site plan. Mr. Screens has been pressed for time for the past few weeks. Chairman Fullmer stated that there can be no errors regarding parking; cars can never be stacked on Joliet Road. Mr. Swanson stated that one handicap space is required for every 25 regular parking spaces. The building will be sprinkled.

Chairman Fullmer asked for comments from interested parties. The next door neighbor, Donna Suffocal has no objection to the business but does request the fence. There were no other comments from interested parties. Mr. Screens had no closing statement.

Chairman Fullmer asked Mr. Screens to provide a site plan for the remodeled interior showing traffic flow and striping of the parking areas. The Board is considering a special use and one variance. The PC/ZBA cannot approve any use tonight due to lack of information. Mr. Screens will retain an architect to create a legal document — site plan and rendering for the above property by May 12, 2011. Ms. Grotzke moved to continue this hearing to a Special PC/ZBA Meeting on Tuesday, May 17, 2011, seconded by Mr. Jasinski and carried unanimously.

OTHER BUSINESS

Mr. Swanson discussed the R-3 zoning district – these parcels contain mostly post World War II buildings on small lots owned by elderly residents. Demographics are changing. Owners are selling to young families with children who need more usable space. Several property owners north of 55th St. have sought to add an attic room for more space. The R-3 district restrictions make it difficult for property owners to expand internal space without coming in for a variance due to the FAR. The FAR is 30% with a detached garage and 35% coverage with an attached garage.

Mr. Swanson stated that a review of the code with an eye to eliminating accessory buildings as part of the FAR should be considered. He suggested making a text amendment or having a study done to determine adequacy of the FAR – but not affecting the footprint or the yard area. Board members argued against that idea. At present residents with detached garages are penalized; accessory buildings should be excluded from the FAR computation.

Residents living at 5322 S. Catherine are trying to install a shed dormer and a second bathroom and that exceeds the FAR; due to the current code they cannot expand upward. The house is 1,600 s.f. and they are not expanding the footprint. Board members are not against expansion upward or installing a second bathroom or attic bedroom, but there should be no expansion of the footprint. Any addition exceeds the FAR requirements in these instances; people with detached garages should not be penalized by using an accessory building as part of the FAR. A garage is not a livable space. LaGrange uses lot coverage not FAR. Atty. Stein suggested a text amendment or bring a recommendation to the City Council to refer it back to the PC/ZBA. Board members asked Swanson to provide information for next month’s meeting focusing on the FAR compilations with and without a garage – and computations of underground/ /ground level basement living areas.

Blue Rhino and Blockbuster may be on the agenda next month.

Chairman Fullmer asked Board concurrence for Attorney Peck to draft a letter to City Council asking them to explain their vote to overrule the PC/ZBA re: flashing electronic signs.

Chairman Fullmer discussed the recent Planning/Zoning Seminar attended by several Board members; it was very worthwhile and most informative.

Mr. Jasinski thanked Board members for all their assistance in the past four years. He will be leaving this Board and moving on to the City Council as Alderman next week.

ADJOURNMENT

Mr. Toth moved to adjourn the hearing, seconded by Mr. Benson and carried unanimously.

Chairman Fullmer declared the meeting adjourned at 10:00 p.m.
