Parcels 14-22-100-004, 14-22-100-005 & 14-22-300-004: William and Barbara Wade own the property located at 8906 Waterman Road, Waterman, in Clinton Township. DeKalb County Ordinance 1991-3 was approved for a Special Use Permit allowing the operation on an airstrip and airplane storage on a 14.85-acre section of the property. One condition of that Ordinance is that the Special Use Permit would only remain in force as long as either Mahlon M. Sawyer (deceased) or William J. Wade owned the property. The Wades wish to change this condition to indicate that "William and Barbara Wade or their descendants" be identified as the required owners of the property. The proposed change would require approval of an Amendment to the Special Use Permit. Before a Special Use Permit can be amended by the DeKalb County Board, a public hearing must be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.


William and Barbara Wade are requesting approval of such an Amendment to a Special Use Permit for the proposed alteration of a condition of DeKalb County Ordinance 1991-3. A public hearing will be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, December 14, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. in the DeKalb County Administration Building, Conference Room East, south entrance, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, 60178. Because this will be the only opportunity for public input on this application, all interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard. The Special Use Permit petition, CL-17-17, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.
