Case No.: 5-19
Applicant: HP Rochelle Real Estate, LLC
Address: 601 Flagg Road, Rochelle, IL 61068
HP Rochelle Real Estate, LLC has petitioned the City of Rochelle to subdivide two lots into one. The purpose of subdividing the lots from 2 to 1 allows the petitioner to develop the property for a future convenience store and gas station, including diesel pumps. Fehr Graham developed a preliminary and final plat of subdivision, civil engineering, building plans, increased storm water detention and on-site improvements for the convenience store/gas station.
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 city ordinances. Pursuant to 65 ILCS 5/11-12-8, the Planning and Zoning Commission shall recommend or not recommend the approval of the preliminary and final plat within 90 days of the application.
Staff feels that the petition is consistent with the comprehensive plan and 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, or a guarantee for completion of improvements has been met. 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 consider recommendation of approval of the preliminary and final plat of subdivision to the City Council.
Case No.: 06-19
Applicant: Rochelle Township High School District No. 212
Address: 1382-1384 N. 8th Street
Rochelle Township High School District No. 212 would like to annex the property located at 1382-1384 N. 8th Street, Rochelle, IL 61068 into the City of Rochelle. The petitioner is proposing the subject property be entered into an annexation agreement with the City of Rochelle. The property has a legal description of parcel number 24-13-301-002. The lot is 1.99 acres more or less. The Planning and Zoning Commission can recommend to city council to approve the plat of annexation after review of the petition with a public hearing. After a duly noticed public hearing, the City of Rochelle Planning & Zoning Commission will consider all the relevant evidence presented at said hearing on May 6, 2019.
Staff feels that since the petitioner has provided documentation for a plat of annexation, the annexation 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, and recommends that the planning and zoning commission approve the plat of annexation.
