Public Hearing

 


Jeff Rhoades, representing FUSE:Kelmscott, has submitted a signage plan for the installation of signage associated with
the new Northwestern Medicine – Health & Wellness Center. 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, three (3) Variations must be granted from the County Sign regulations. Before Variations 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 – Health & Wellness Center located on the
south side of East Bethany Road, approximately 600 feet east of Greenwood acres drive. A public hearing will be held
by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, May 3, 2018, 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-18-7, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development
Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.
