offered in Option C. The Plan Commission believes the proposed improvements will not have an adverse impact on surrounding properties. The Plan Commission believes the proposed parking lot restriping and landscaping improvements will be compatible with existing development in the area. The proposed parking lot clean-up and landscaping plan should not impede the normal and orderly development and improvements of the surrounding properties. The Plan Commission believes that small truck deliveries for the Waukegan Road commercial business should be accommodated in the Village owned parking lot, and large trucks should have designated hours for loading on Waukegan Road, such as 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. In the future, the Village can allow large trucks to load in the parking lot if loading on Waukegan Road does not work. The Plan Commission believes that if large trucks are permitted in the parking lot at some point in the future, the bike racks should be moved so that they are not south of the truck loading zone. The Plan Commission believes the clean-up plan addresses safety and circulation while landscape Option 1 provides much needed aesthetic improvements to the parking lot. Lot of Sufficient Size The Plan Commission believes the lot is of sufficient size for the proposed improvements. Currently, these properties are being used as public parking lots. With the proposed improvements, the properties will continued to be used as public parking lots and the traffic flow and striping will be clearer and more orderly. They believe there is sufficient room for a significant landscape buffer along Deerfield Road to improve aesthetics. The Plan Commission believes the proposed plans for the property are appropriate and reasonable. Traffic The Plan Commission believes that the proposed parking lot restriping and layout should not have an adverse impact on the surrounding properties. The clean-up should not attract much additional traffic to the parking lot. It is anticipated that existing parking lot users will continue to park in the lot. The Plan Commission believes restriping Option C should help improve traffic flow and make the parking lot layout clearer, making the lot safer for vehicles and pedestrians. The Church’s preschool drop-off and pick-up will continue to operate in the lot with safety enhancements. There will be a one-way westbound traffic flow by the Church. Option C provides enough aisle space for parents to pull over for the drop-off/pick-up while allowing another car to pass. The Plan Commission believes it is appropriate to allow small delivery trucks to use the Village owned parking lots for loading and deliveries. The parking lot will have signage directing the delivery trucks so that the trucks are not traveling past the Church’s preschool entrance. The Plan Commission does not believe that large delivery trucks should be permitted in the parking lot at this time. The Plan Commission believes that designated hours, such as 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., should be provided for loading on Waukegan Road so as not to interfere with rush hour traffic. 4

Parking and Access The Plan Commission believes that the proposed clean-up plan will not adversely impact parking or access. The property currently exists as a public parking lot and the use will not change. The proposed clean-up plans provides for restriping and landscaping for the existing parking lot. Restriping Option C, with 90 degree parking, maximizes the number of parking spaces on site. The Plan Commission believes the clean-up plan will provide an adequate number of parking spaces in the lot with improved circulation, safety and aesthetics. Access to the parking lot will not change. The existing access point is located in the northwest corner of the parking lot, off Jewett Park Drive and will remain in its current location. Effect on the Neighborhood The Plan Commission believes that the proposed restriping and landscaping will not be significantly or materially detrimental to the health, safety and welfare of the public or injurious to the other property or improvements in the neighborhood, nor will it diminish or impair property values in the surrounding area. The property is currently used as a public parking lot and the Plan Commission believes restriping Option C will improve the striping and layout of the parking lot, maximize the number of parking spaces, provide better circulation through the drive aisles, and improve safety in the parking lot. Option C will allow trucks in the lot to load and make deliveries to the Waukegan Road commercial businesses. The Plan Commission believes that only small trucks, such as a UPS or Fed Ex truck, should be allowed in the parking lot. They believe that large trucks should be permitted to load on Waukegan Road during designated hours, such as 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., so as not to conflict with rush hour traffic. There will be appropriate signage to direct truck traffic to the loading area and away from the Church’s preschool entrance. The Plan Commission believes landscaping Option 1 will provide a significant aesthetic improvement to the Village owned properties along Deerfield Road. They believe landscape Option 1 will provide a natural looking buffer to soften the view of the parking lot. Adequate Facilities Adequate utilities and facilities are currently available in the parking lots and will remain. Adequate Buffering The Plan Commission prefers landscaping Option 1, which is a naturalized landscape scheme. The Plan Commission likes the natural, less formal look of landscape Option 1. The Plan Commission believes that Option 1 provides significant landscaping to improve aesthetics and buffer the view of the parking lot while not completely hiding the parking lot from view. The Plan Commission believes it is important that the view of the parking lot be improved and softened, but believes it is important for people to know the parking lot is there and know they can use it. 5
