Land usage ordinance pushed forward in November meeting of Port Barrington's planning commission
A land usage ordinance was pushed forward in the Nov. 10 meeting of the Planning Commission of Port Barrington Village.
Minutes from the meeting indicate that since the previous regular meeting of the commission, the ordinance had be updated to address recommendations made at that meeting. It was also clarified that this ordinance was primarily related to business operations in the village. The ordinance provides changes for groundwater protection in relation to land usage. Minor concerns over the measure were noted by one member of the commission, but the ordinance was moved forward with a positive recommendation from the commission.
Another item that was to be discussed at this meeting was the review of an ordinance relating to signs and light measurement, but this was saved for a future meeting. Only a portion of the commission was present and the matter would need full commission participation, chairman Michael Weiner stated.
The meeting also held reviews of proposed rezoning and subdivisions.
Weiner stated during this meeting that the commission would not be meeting during the month of December unless there were an urgent agenda item that required the commission's attention.
This commission meeting concluded at approximately 8:33 p.m.
