THE MOTION CARRIED.

Trustee Pierce asked why we need to hire Smith Engineering when we have Bob Silhan and Jim Keim on staff. Administrator Haley said that both Bob Silhan and Jim Keim are reviewing the plan, but because this is a large development, we still need the expertise of a large engineering firm because we want to ensure that the village is represented well.

There was a brief discussion regarding the need to hire an outside consulting firm for review of the annexation and questions concerning Smith Engineering being an exclusive firm used. Administrator Haley said there are no contracts with Smith Engineering for outside engineering services and that is why he is bringing individual agreements to the Board for approval. Trustee Hanson said that Staff Engineer Jim Keim has been hired to oversee the village projects. It would be impossible for one person to review all projects. Currently, staff is pleased with the services done by Smith Engineering.

A motion was made by Trustee Hanson, seconded by Trustee Pierce to approve signing an agreement with Smith Engineering for review of the 55 acre annexation at Route 173 and Savage Road to be paid out of the Neumann Homes escrow account. On roll call, the vote was:

COMMUNICATIONS Trustee Pierce read aloud the letter of appreciation from Brian Roden, Redwing Drive resident, thanking building department staff, namely Maureen Ryan, Gene Wagner and Wally Henning for their assistance with his permit process.
CITIZENS Ms. Sharon Majers, President of Mystic Cove Homeowner's Association thanked the village for cutting the weeds on the vacant lot in their subdivision. Ms. Majers stated that the association is concerned with the condition of the ponds. Since the bank owns the property, she was hoping the Village could do something to expedite correcting the situation. Administrator Haley said that like any other development, the homeowner's association belongs to the developer until, depending on the stipulations in the covenants, seventy percent of the lots are sold. At this point, LaSalle Bank is the homeowner's association. Currently, the bank is not building or selling the lots. Mr. Haley suggested that we can ask the Village Attorney to draft a letter to LaSalle National Bank. Ms. Majers said the prior administration stopped issuing building permits until the problems are resolved and she wondered if this is still the case. Robert Silhan, Director of Planning, Zoning and Building said that there hasn't been any request for building permits. With respect to the ponds, all retention ponds require maintenance and that maintenance responsibility becomes the responsibility of the homeowner's association, which in this case is the bank. Mr. Silhan indicated that he feels Mr. Haley's suggestion to have the Village Attorney write a letter to LaSalle National Bank stating the concerns or if the Board is appropriate or if the Board chooses, he would write the letter. Ms. Majers said that she believes the ponds were not built correctly. Mr. Silhan stated that a letter from Clark Dietz, Inc. indicates the ponds are in their current condition do to lack of maintenance and not due to poor construction. Following discussion, the Village Attorney will send a letter to LaSalle National Bank.

Ms. Marianne Guy, White Road resident, expressed her concerns regarding the proposed Neumann Homes development. Some of Ms. Guys concerns are: the commercial zoned property, compatibility to the comprehensive plan, proposed ordinance amendments and density. Trustee Larson said that this is part of the non-binding settlement agreement. Ms. Guy said that if it's part of the settlement agreement why are there public hearings scheduled. Trustee Larson stated that "we agreed to let them go through the public hearing process and let the different boards decide if the proposal has merit or not".

Mr. Chris Leinhardt, Park Board Chairman, discussed the Friends of the Park event recently held at Sawmill Park. Mr. Leinhardt thanked all those who helped and Powell Inc. donated 18 yards of wood chips. Next month a different park will be chosen. Chris Leinhardt also briefly discussed the skate park and the concerns regarding the installation of a fence around the park. The fence issue will be discussed further with the park board at their next meeting.

Laurie Stahl, Parks and Recreation Director, briefly updated the board on the status of the skate park construction. She said, Steven Hoge, supervisor of Game Time, and who oversees the installation of the equipment, said he was very impressed with public works department. Trustee Larson said the dedication for the skate park is scheduled for September 5 at 3:30 p.m.

Mr. Greg Umek, Savage Road resident, presented a letter to the Board of Trustees on behalf of A.C.R.E. (Antioch Coalition to Rescue the Environment) and A.R.R.G. (Alliance of Residents for Responsible Growth). The letter questioned the issue of providing healthful drinking water. It said, "with the tremendous volume of residential and commercial development proposed for Antioch, the huge withdrawal from municipal wells will increase the cone of depression which changes the hydro geology". The letter went on to say that A.C.R.E. and A.R.R.G. insist on an immediate moratorium of all development until an in depth, independent study can be completed. Following discussion, Trustee Pierce asked Jim Keim, staff engineer, the status of water supply in Antioch. Mr. Keim said that there is a study going on right now, and that we have adequate water supply. Testing on all wells is done quarterly as required. Mr. Umek said that he feels the proposed mega-developments, such as Wal-Mart would be a tremendous consumption of water.

Trustee Foresta said that it is a well known fact that developments such as Wal-Mart does not put a drain on utilities because they are very small water users.

Ms. Marianne Brandt, Miller Road resident, questioned the location of the water tower proposed for the Neumann Homes development and who is paying for the construction of the water tower. Trustee Pierce stated that the location of the water tower is part of the preliminary plan process and has not yet been identified.

There was a discussion regarding citizens addressing the Board concerning items that have not yet come before the village board. Trustee Larson said that she understands citizens expressing their concerns, however, she would prefer to not comment on development issues that are still before other boards and she hopes the citizens understands when she doesn't comment on . Trustee Hanson apologized for the Board and he also appreciates the public speaking at the meetings, but he feels some items should be discussed before the proper boards. Trustee Caulfield said that he feels it's important that the Board listen to the citizens concerns and that discussions should not turn into a debate.

The Combined Planning and Zoning Board reviewed the proposed final PUD plan and Unit One Plat at their regular meeting of August 1, 2002, following posting of the agenda on 7/18/02 as required. Mr. Kevin Crowe of Neumann Homes presented the request.

The preliminary (entitlement) PUD plan for Deercrest was approved by the Village Board in April, 1999 by Ordinance Number 99-04-07. Approval by the Planning and Zoning Board did not act on this matter due to the off-site utility issue. Following further detailed wetland delineation, minor revisions to the plan and plat were presented to the Planning and Zoning Board on September 14, 2000. The P & Z Board tabled the matter "until such time as the sewer and water easements have been resolved and recorded."

Prior to the meeting, we received copies of the following: plans previously reviewed on September 14, 2000; staff reports dated September 8, 2000 and February 4, 2000, including the letter from then Consultant Village Engineer John Boldt; the Planning and Zoning Board minutes of the September 14, 2000 and February 10, 2000 meetings; and the July 3, 2002 Memorandum of Understanding - Non-binding Agreement for Settlement Purposes Only.

We also received and reviewed Planning Director Bob Silhan's July 26, 2002 report, which included an attached list of recorded Route 173 water easements. In Mr. Silhan's absence, Village Engineer Jim Keim presented the Staff Report. The report recommends approval with conditions. The primary concern involves the relationship of the Deercrest site to the Elfering site, immediately to the west, particularly the need for a lift station and water easement at Deertrail Court as extended.

Following brief deliberation, Bob McCarty moved, Carol Keller seconded, to APPROVE PZB00-01-R, with conditions as noted in the July 26th Staff Report from Bob Silhan. Upon roll call vote: YES: 6; Ipsen, McCarty, F. Johnson, LaReese, Keller, and Baba. NO: 0. The Motion Carried.

Trustee Larson said the Park Board has worked very hard on the Skate Park and she reviewed the rules, waiver and the one time $5.00 per family entry fee. Mayor Maravelas questioned the reason for the fee. Laurie Stahl, Parks Director, said the fee is a one-time and the $5.00 is per family not per person. Chris Leinhardt, Park Board Chairman, said that many nearby communities opened village skate parks and this year most are not charging a fee, but he would be curious to see if next year the park districts would be revisiting the fee issue. Mr. Leinhardt said the Park Board was trying to be ahead of the game in some respects and not play catch up in the future. Trustee Caulfield said the money was donated by the State for the Skate Park and park acquisition from developments and he can't fathom charging a fee for the use of a park. Ms. Stahl said that she met with the village's insurance company and was trying to protect the village as suggested by them.

ATTORNEY Attorney Anderson reviewed the following ordinances:

First Reading: Ordinance Amending Chapter 100 of the Antioch Code of Ordinances - Preservation and Replacement of Trees. Robert Silhan said that in his opinion, the proposed ordinance is an improvement over what we have, in that we'll be receiving material based on this amendment at the preliminary stage. The current ordinance reads final stage. If you want an overall picture of what's going to happen, he thinks this ordinance does that. The larger site comes in phases so, from a final plan standpoint we could get those individual phases instead of the broad overview.
