Village of Homer Glen (Public Hearing):
Consideration of Zoning Code Text Amendments to the Use and Bulk Tables for Nonresidential Districts [Table 2 or Chapter 220 (Zoning) of the Code of the Village of Homer Glen]. The first draft of the text amendments was presented to the Community and Economic Development (CED) Committee on January 9, 2018 and further feedback was sought at the February 13, 2018 meeting.

Annico Business Park Initiative:

The purpose of this initiative is to allow Annico Business Park a more diversified set of uses and to fully designate it as an I-1 Light Industrial Park. Annico Business Park has been home to a variety of commercial and light industrial-type businesses in the past. In some cases, new businesses must seek a Special Use Permit, requiring additional time and expense to go through the zoning process. Recognizing the uniqueness of this park, and the fact that the 2005 Comprehensive Plan designated the area as a 'Business Park,' staff has recommended rezoning the entire park to I-1 Industrial. As a part of the Zoning Code updated described above, staff included relevant commercial uses in the I-1 Industrial District to make this park a hub for thriving commercial and light industrial businesses.
