The DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance restricts the number, size, and location of signs that may be placed on the property. In order to allow the number, location, and size of signs proposed, several Variations must be granted from the County Sign regulations. Before a Variation can be granted, a public hearing must be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.

 

Mr. Rhoades is requesting such Variations for the Northwestern Medicine - Kishwaukee Hospital campus located southwest of the intersection of State Route 23 and Bethany Road. A public hearing will be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, March 9, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. in the DeKalb County Administration Building, East Conference Room, south entrance, 110 E. Sycamore St., Sycamore, IL 60178. All interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard, as this will be the only opportunity for public input on the application. The petition, DK-17-3, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Planning, Zoning, and Building Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, 815-895-7188.

 

Reopening of Special Use Permit for EDF Renewable Development, Inc. .pdf  


EDF Renewable Development, Inc. is proposing to erect a wind testing tower on a portion of a property located on the east side of McQueen Road between Mowers Road and State Route 64 in South Grove Township. However, towers and other such essential service structures are a Special Use in the A-1, Agricultural District, which is the zoning of the 80-acre farm parcel on which the tower is proposed. In order to construct the wind testing tower, a Special Use Permit must be approved by the DeKalb County Board. Before a Special Use Permit can be granted, a public hearing must be held before the DeKalb County Zoning Hearing Officer.


A public hearing regarding the application was held on January 26, 2017. Afterwards, the Hearing Officer forwarded a recommendation of approval of the Special Use permit, with conditions. The Planning and Zoning Committee of the DeKalb County Board considered the Hearing Officer's Findings and Recommendation, and decided to return the application to the Hearing Officer to re-open the hearing and take additional testimony from the public and petitioners.

 

The public hearing on the requested Special Use for EDF Renewable Development, Inc. will be re-opened by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, April 6, 2017, at 5:30 p.m., in the DeKalb County Legislative Center, Gathertorium, 200 N. Main, Sycamore, IL, 60178. All interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard. The Special Use Permit application,Petition SG-17-1, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Planning Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.
