Narrative:

Progressive Park LLC (formerly Prologis Park) has petitioned the City of Rochelle to amend the current annexation agreement to include the 2 lots that were excluded in the original Annexation Agreement in 2006. Progressive Park LLC has since purchased the excluded lots.

The purpose of subdividing the lots from 3 to 1 allows the petitioner to develop the property for future expansion of warehouse distribution, office space, and off street parking.

The City improvements and easements were provided in the original Annexation Agreement but rezoning and a minor subdivision is required along with amending the current annexation agreement.

Progressive Park LLC. Along with City staff developed amended the Annexation Agreement with the City of Rochelle that will contain a preliminary and final plat of subdivision and Zoning for I-2 General Industry.

City staff and the planning and zoning commission shall review the preliminary and final plat for conformance with the comprehensive plan, the provisions hereof, and all other applicable ordinances. Pursuant to 65 ILCS 5/11-12-8, the planning and zoning commission shall disapprove or recommend approval of the preliminary and final plat within 60 days of the acceptance of the annexation agreement.

Staff recommends

Staff feels that since the petitioner has entered into an annexation agreement with the City of Rochelle that meets all the standards provided in the Rochelle Municipal Code, staff has reviewed the preliminary and final plat, land improvements have been proposed, easements have been dedicated, a guarantee for completion of improvements has been met and a development in this area will provide a gateway of growth for the community of Rochelle. The proposed development is not dangerous to public health, will not impair property values in the neighborhood, will not impede normal development of the surrounding properties, will not impair light to adjacent property, congest public streets, or increase the risk of fire. Staff recommends that the planning and zoning commission recommend approval of the preliminary and final plat of subdivision to the City Council. The legal description is attached.
