Case No.: 02-18
Applicant: Hub City Development LLC
Address: 300 Steward Road Rochelle, Illinois 61068

Narrative:

In 2010, the City entered into an annexation agreement with Hub City Development, LLC for a 48-acre parcel of land on the north side of Steward Road East of Route 251 and west of S. Main St. In April 2018 PZC and City Council amended the Zoning map to zone the property B-2. Since that time Hub City Development has petitioned the City of Rochelle to amend the current annexation agreement to include 3 lots.

Hub City Development has provided a preliminary and final plat of subdivision for 3 lots. Lot one is 13 acres zoned B-2 Commercial Highway, lot 2 is 12 acres zoned B-2 and lot 3 will be an out lot that is undeveloped.

The purpose of subdividing the lots allows the petitioner to develop the property for future expansion of Commercial Development.

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.

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.

After a duly noticed public hearing, the City of Rochelle Planning & Zoning Commission will consider all the relevant evidence presented at said hearing on November 5, 2018.

 Staff recommends

Staff feels that since the petitioner will enter 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.

After a duly noticed public hearing, the City of Rochelle Planning & Zoning Commission will consider all the relevant evidence presented at said hearing on November 5, 2018.
