Planning and Zoning: Trustee Crockett

• Ordinance 19-18 - An Ordinance granting a Variance from Title 8, Building Regulations, Chapter 4, Fence Regulations, Article 4(A), Height and Location in the C-2 Commercial Zoning District, for the property known as 154 North Walnut Street, Manteno, Illinois. A public hearing was held by the Planning Commission last week for the Village's request to allow an 8' tall fence along the south property line of the recently acquired property in the southwest corner of the Square on Second. Due to the view of the back of the building across the alley, which includes several dumpsters, the board wanted to block that view from the Square on Second area.

• Ordinance 19-19 - An Ordinance granting a Special Use Permit to allow for installation of a Drive-In Bank at property owned by National Bank of St. Anne and located at 102 South Creek Drive, Manteno, Illinois. This Special Use Permit is required for drivethrough facilities in the C-2 zoning district. The required public hearing was held last week by the Planning Commission. The bank is locating in the vacated space where Family Video use to occupy. The drive-through facility will not affect the two other tenants and in fact the reconfiguration will add additional parking spaces for all three businesses located there.

• Ordinance 19-17 - An Ordinance amending Title 3, Business Regulations, Chapter 11, Occupation Taxes, by adding Section 3-11-4, Cannabis Retailers' Occupation Tax, of the Municipal Code for the Village of Manteno. As discussed at the Finance committee meeting, this ordinance allows the Village to implement a tax on the sale of cannabis products should a distribution facility decide to locate in Manteno.
