PETE LEZEAU Mr. Pete Lezeau, Antioch Redevelopment Commission Chairman, stated the Redevelopment Commission recently made a motion to request authorization to ask for bids to be received regarding the burying of the utilities on the West side of Main Street. Trustee Porch asked George Sakas, Senior Planner, to explain the procedure we need to go through for burying the utilities on the west side of Main Street. Mr. Sakas said that part of two independent activities right now are the extension of the new lighting along Lake Street, ďthatís one activity that may give us an opportunity to bargain for a better deal for putting those utilities underground.Ē He also said that we are also working on the Downtown Plan, and he is not sure how the plan would affect the burying of the utilities, other than stating they should be buried. Mayor Maravelas said that Dr. Don Skidmore, former Chairman of the Redevelopment Commission said there was money available in the TIF budget. Mr. Lezeau asked for approval to receive estimates. Attorney Bob Long stated that if all the Commission is asking for is just estimates, and they are not going out to formal bid, he didnít see a problem on making a motion for that request.

PZB03-11 The following Planning and Zoning Board letter of recommendation dated October 10, 2003 regarding the proposed height variance at 373 Kairys Street, Lot 3 of Kairys Subdivision; PIN #02-05-301-002; PZB03-11; recommendation to DENY was reviewed:

The Combined Planning and Zoning Board conducted a hearing on October 9, 2003, following notification as required by Illinois State Law and Village Ordinance.

Petitioner Chicago 20 MHz d/b/a US Cellular, Chicago, IL as represented by itís agent Michael Bieniek of Site Acquisition Consultants L.P. in Palatine, IL. Co-petitioner Javier Garcia of Antioch, IL.

Site The property is vacant/undeveloped and zoned M1 Limited Manufacturing. Adjoining properties to the east and the north are developed R1 Single Family Residential. Adjoining properties to the west and south are vacant/undeveloped and zoned M1 Limited Manufacturing.

Proposal Antiochís zoning ordinance restricts structures in M-1 zoning to three stories or 45 feet. Petitioner seeks variance for the emplacement of a mobile phone ďcellĒ tower with a 190-foot height.

Presentation Mr. Bieniek presented rationale for the emplacement and variance: The need for a US Cellular tower to complete the ďgridĒ in conjunction with the tower on IL Rte. 83 in unincorporated Antioch near West Loon Lake; improved cell phone coverage for the Village of Antioch; and the Need for 190-foot tower based on radio-frequency engineerís estimate.

Discussion The Planning and Zoning Board discussed the need for a 190-foot variance given the relative elevation of the site (818 feet above sea level). Proximity to residential neighbors was also considered.

Audience There were citizen comments from the adjacent neighbors. Their objections included proximity to their property, (estimated 70 feet) and the height of the tower.

Staff Review Senior Planner George Sakas recommended denial fo the variance (attached) based on lack of justification for the 190-foot height, and lack of a plan for a principal structure/use on the property, and proximity to residential property.

Recommendation Following discussion, Bob McCarty moved, Kyle LaReese seconded a motion to RECOMMEND DENIAL of the zoning variance. AYES: 6; Cole, LaReese, Keller, Baba, McCarty, Ipsen. NAYS: 0. ABSTAIN: 0. ABSENT: 0. The Motion Carried.

VB MOTION A motion was made by Trustee Turner, seconded by Trustee Porch that based on the Planning and Zoning Boardís recommendation, to DENY PZB03-11 without prejudice, so they can come back at any time to submit a new plan with more scientific data. On roll call, the vote was:

YES: 6; Pierce, Larson, Caulfield, Porch, Hanson and Turner.

NO: 0.

THE MOTION CARRIED.

DISCUSSION Mr. Mike Bieniek, Site Acquisition Consultants, L.P., said that he submitted a letter requesting this item be tabled tonight because there was quite a bit of misinformation that was portrayed in staff reports to the Planning and Zoning Board. He said that following the Planning and Zoning Board meeting, he said they tried several times to schedule a meeting with staff to clear up some of those issues. Mr. Bieniek said that also present in the audience were the project manager for US Cellular, the radio frequency engineer, and they have brought plot maps and all that information available that they wanted to discuss with staff to clear up these issues. Mr. Bieniek also said that he doesnít believe the Planning and Zoning Board made their recommendation to the Village Board based on the correct information. Village Attorney Bob Long said that staff doesnít talk to people about issues that were not presented to the Planning and Zoning Board between the Planning and Zoning Board meeting and the Village Board meeting. Attorney Long said the Planning and Zoning Board is where you have a public hearing and the people from the community have an opportunity to come in and cross examine any petitioner. He said itís the petitionerís obligation at that point, to put forward your case. Trustee Pierce said the motion gives US Cellular a clean slate and they could start over without any time limitations. Attorney Long said that it does and that typically if a variance is denied, the applicant is not allowed to reapply for a period of six months. Mr. Bieniek asked about the moratorium that is in place. Attorney Long said the motion contemplates him coming back to submit his application at anytime, thatís specifically what it says.
MAIN ST. TREE MINI-LIGHTS Trustee Porch reviewed the proposals received by the Antioch Redevelopment Commission regarding the tree lights for Main Street. She said the Redevelopment Commissionís recommendation is to award the proposal to Zenon Company, in the amount of $9,997.00 for the installation of the approximately 770 stings of lights on Main Street. Trustee Porch also said that at this time there is no electrical power on Lake, Toft and Orchard Streets, these trees will not be included in this years proposal, however, they may expand the lights on the trees to these streets at some in the future.

A motion was made by Trustee Porch, seconded by Trustee Pierce to approve the Redevelopment Commissionís recommendation and award the proposal to Zenon Company in the amount of $9,997.00, for the installation of holiday mini lights on the east and west side of Main Street (Route 83) as listed. Funds will be paid from the Redevelopment Fund. On roll call, the vote was:

YES: 6; Pierce, Larson, Caulfield, Porch, Hanson and Turner.

NO: 0.

THE MOTION CARRIED.

ATTORNEY Attorney Bob Long read aloud the Resolution entitled, A Resolution commending the Clock Tower Committee, Thanking the Generous Donors to date and clarifying the Siting of the Clock Tower.
R03-25 - CLOCK TOWER A motion was made by Trustee Porch, seconded by Trustee Caulfield to approve Resolution R03-25, entitled, A Resolution commending the Clock Tower Committee, Thanking the Generous Donors to date and clarifying the Siting of the Clock Tower.

Trustee Turner said that although she wasnít present at the last meeting, she has read in the minutes that there was quite a conversation about this. She said that she thinks we should determine the final location now. She said that it is insulting to the Clock Tower Committee who has come to the Board several times to request from the Board the location of the Clock Tower. She said that we should determine the location and let them get on with their fundraising. Trustee Turner said that we just told a cell tower company that we will let them resubmit regardless of the moratorium. She doesnít agree that we should tell the Clock Tower Committee that they should have to wait. She said she would be for the resolution, except for Section 4. Mayor Maravelas said the Committee has come before the Village Board five times. He also said the property in question is less than one-third of an acre. Attorney Long said that when he looks at the resolution, itís not so much that it wouldnít go on that one-third of acre at the northeast corner of Main and Orchard Streets, but it may be that the Route 83 Corridor Study may suggest that the Clock Tower be located more to the left or right. Trustee Pierce said there are several things that he doesnít understand in Sections 3 and 4 and that he agrees with Trustee Turner. He said that at the last meeting he asked for the motion regarding the clock tower be repeated at tonightís meeting. He said that instead we have resolution under Trustee Porchís committee. Trustee Pierce went on to say that if you look at Section 3, it doesnít say where, and if you look at Section 4 it say itís the result of the Study. He said that this resolution sounds agreeable, but itís not doing anything. Trustee Pierce said that in the approved minutes from last meeting, there is everyoneís discussion with the exception for the Mayor. The minutes showed the Mayor calling for a motion. Trustee Pierce said the Mayor implored them last week to vote yes on the location and he is imploring everyone here to vote yes on a location. Trustee Larson said that she absolutely agrees with Trustees Turner and Pierce, in addition, itís property that the Village owns, itís one-third of an acre at the corner, there is not going to be a driveway coming in or out where the Clock Tower is, so itís not going to hinder any business located there, and the bottom line is the corridor study is a recommendation that we are the final votes on. She said if we all think that is a good location, let the Committee get on with their fundraising.

TOWER DISCUSSION Robert Silhan, Director of Planning, Zoning and Building, suggested that in Section 3 the verbiage be changed to state at the northeast corner of Main Street and Orchard Street, and in Section 4 replace the word location with the word site. Trustee Hanson said that he is one of the people that voted against this because of the situation here, and he commends the Mayor for stepping forward and trying to come up with a resolution that we all agree upon, that we still put it on the corner. He indicated there is nothing wrong with waiting for the Study to help us plan. Trustee Larson said that if we are all in favor of that corner, why do we need a resolution, why not say put it on that corner and the siting will take care of itself. Trustee Turner said the corridor study may take a while. Mayor Maravelas said there is a motion and a second and that he is on the Clock Tower Committee. He said they worked very hard, they are civic minded individuals who go out and they work very hard for this community for you people to get a quarter of a million dollars and when theyíre done, theyíre going to donate it to the Village and the people of the Village of Antioch. He said letís not deprive them, let them go out and get their funds. He said if the tower is located two feet left or right, itís going to be on that one-third of the property and letís go on with that. Mayor Maravelas called for the roll call vote.

Clerk Rowe asked if this motion approves the resolution as read, without any changes. Trustee Porch suggested that she would withdraw her motion if Trustee Caulfield would withdraw his second. Trustee Caulfield indicated that he would not withdraw his second.

On roll call, the vote was:

YES: 4*; Caulfield, Porch, Hanson and Maravelas.

NO: 3; Pierce, Larson and Turner.

THE MOTION CARRIED.

*In cases of a tie, the Mayor has the right to vote.

AMEND RESOLUTION A motion was made by Trustee Pierce, seconded by Trustee Turner to amend Resolution R03-25 in Section 3 to state at the Northeast corner of Main Street and Orchard Street. Following a brief discussion, the motion and the second was amended to include striking Section 4 entirely.

Clerk Rowe repeated the motion. A motion was made by Trustee Pierce, seconded by Trustee Turner to amend Resolution R03-25, entitled, A Resolution Commending the Clock Tower Committee, Thanking the Generous Donors to date and clarifying the Siting of the Clock Tower, to amend Section 3 to read, ďThe Clock Tower shall be installed at the Northeast corner of Main Street and Orchard Street on Village-owned property and striking Section 4 entirely.

Trustee Caulfield said that he would like to say that we have heard from one side of this issue this evening, and the reason he is voting the way he is, is when he hears the word insulting brought up earlier by Trustee Turner, thatís exactly the word he was thinking of using when it comes to insulting our village planner, insulting the village board for conditioning a study, and making decisions before we actually have and paid for the study. He also said that risking wasting tax payers money once again by starting a project without a plan. Trustee Caulfield said that Trustee Hanson refreshed his memory earlier today, that the Scout House was a project that was started in just the same fashion and he doesnít think we should go down that track again. He also said that this resolution, in his opinion, narrows down the location to that specific corner, itís the intention of this board to have it in that corner, and all this resolution does is leave an out if needed. He said that it seems to him that if this Board is going to make decisions about where to place things when they have a study and they have a planner, perhaps it might not be to far to carry it to and ask why do we need a planner and why do we need the study. He said again that itís not wise to not wait for the results of the study and to take the advice of our planner.

TOWER DISCUSSION Trustee Porch asked Clock Tower Committee members if the site still needs to be tested. Mr. Jim LaFontaine said that once we have a commitment on where the tower is going, we can go further with drawings for the site, continue with fundraising, have soil testing done, we canít build without all the information. Trustee Porch asked if it were unreasonable to ask the Board for the location without all this information. She said they still have a lot of plans to submit to the Board, so our saying it has to be located there, what if for some reason on the Committees end, they find out itís not a usable spot. Trustee Larson said if theyíre asking us to commit to a spot, and they came back and said all of their engineering says the location is not suitable, her guess would be the Committee would come back to the Village Board and state they have to find another site. Trustee Hanson said that we just finished the first phase of the corridor study and he assumes that if we want the Clock Tower on the Northeast corner, the study will agree. He believes that the Board is taking this whole thing totally out of content, and they were just leaving an out, so that everyone would have an out if needed.

Clerk Rowe again repeated the motion. A motion was made by Trustee Pierce, seconded by Trustee Turner to amend Resolution R03-25, entitled, A Resolution Commending the Clock Tower Committee, Thanking the Generous Donors to date and clarifying the Siting of the Clock Tower. Section 3 of the Resolution has been amended to read, ďThe Clock Tower shall be installed at the Northeast corner of Main Street and Orchard Street on Village-owned propertyĒ. Section 4, in itís entirety, has been removed.

On roll call, the vote was:

YES: 4*; Pierce, Larson, Turner and Maravelas.

NO: 3; Caulfield, Porch and Hanson.

THE MOTION CARRIED.

*In a tie vote, Mayor Maravelas has the right to vote.

Mr. Jim LaFontaine, on behalf of the Clock Tower Committee thanked the Village Board for all their time and efforts they have put into this project.

2004 WALLEYE TOURN. Trustee Porch said that she has been notified by Claude LeMere, Fox Lake Community Development Director, that the Professional Walleye Tournament has selected another state for the 2004 Tournament. She said, the Chain Oí Lakes area may be considered for the 2005 Tournament so we may want to plan on budgeting the appropriate funds for next year.
ROUTE 173 Trustee Porch reported that Route 173 railroad crossing will be closed on October 21 and is expected to reopen on October 29.

Trustee Caulfield said that Ms. Chriss explains the invoice, but, he doesnít see a call for approval of this invoice this evening. Village Attorney Bob Long indicated this item was held over from the last meeting for clarification and it would appropriate for the Board to vote on the invoice tonight if they so choose.
