NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER AMENDING THE ZONING ORDINANCE TO PERMIT SOLID FENCES

Notice is hereby given that the Beecher Planning and Zoning Commission shall conduct a public hearing at the hour of 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 27th at the Washington Township Center, 30200 Town Center Road, Beecher, Illinois.

The purpose of the public hearing is to take testimony on a proposal to amend the Village’s zoning ordinance to permit solid fences up to six (6) feet in height in rear and side yards in residential districts.  The current ordinance only allows for fences up to five (5) feet in height and the fence must be 50% open at right angles (1” of open space for each 2” of fence surface) unless the residence has a permanent swimming pool whereby a solid fence is then permitted.  The locations and setbacks for fences would not change.

All residents are invited and encouraged to attend this public hearing and shall be given an opportunity to be heard.  Written comments can also be provided to the Beecher Village Hall, 625 Dixie Highway, P.O. Box 1154, Beecher, Illinois by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 27th and will be read at the hearing and become part of the permanent record.

Phil Serviss
Chairman, Beecher Planning and Zoning Commission

ORDINANCE PERTAINING TO CANNABIS BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENTS

On December 9, 2019, the Village Board considered the issue of  allowing adult-use cannabis business establishments in the Village. The Board agreed to allow the sales of adult-use cannabis under very specific circumstances. A recreational cannabis business establishment would only be allowed in the Village after compliance with terms of the ordinance and application for a Special Use Permit and public hearing.
