Agenda Item #1 -
Public Hearing on Amendment to Annexation Agreement and Subdivision of Property Located
at 16218, 16314 Steward Road for Progressive Park
Summary of the Annexation Agreement: Progressive Park LLC (formerly Prologis Park) has petitioned
the City of Rochelle to amend the current annexation agreement to include the two 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 the amended Annexation Agreement that will contain
a preliminary and final plat of subdivision and Zoning for I-2 General Industry.
Staff feels that 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.
The City of Rochelle Planning and Zoning Commission held a public hearing on August 6th to review the
petition from Progressive Park LLC. After review of the facts the Planning and Zoning Commission
recommends, by a vote of 4-0, that the City Council approve the preliminary and final plat of subdivision for
the 3.7 acres contingent upon staff review and comments.
