Development Proposals

Proposed (and Revised) Amendment to the Timber Trails Planned Unit Development Ordinance – Applicants: Timber Trails Development Company LLC, McNaughton Development, LLC, and Mr. Tim Holcer (resident and property owner in Timber Trails) 

The parties noted above are requesting an amendment to the Planned Unit Development Ordinance (“Ordinance”). The Ordinance is one of the documents that regulates construction, zoning, and many other aspects of the development. While the Ordinance regulates all property within the development, the applicants have specified 160 single family lots that would be affected by the proposed amendment. Those lots are listed in the revised application provided below. The underlying zoning, which is R-2 Single Family, would remain in place. 

The applicants have request an amendment to the Ordinance to expand the rear yard encroachments to permit elevated decks and patios, as well as rear yard encroachments by elevated enclosed porches. The original request, heard by the Plan Commission, requested that elevated decks, patios, and porches be allowed to extend a maximum of fifteen (15) feet into the permitted rear yard setback with a maximum width of fifteen (15) feet. The revised application requests that only the “enclosed” element of the request be approved and that the decks and porches not exceed the allowed ten (10) foot rear yard encroachment. Below you will find the revised application submitted by the applicants.

The Village received the following documents from the applicant and the Village Board considered the request at their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, May 9, 2022. At that time, the Village Board decided to refer the request back to the Plan Commission for further review since the application was revised. Should the applicants continue to seek approval, a new public hearing before the Plan Commission will be scheduled.
