F.1. National Pollution Discharge Elimination Program Annual Update

Director Hughes addressed the Board regarding the pollution discharge program and annual update.

Under the new permit requirements, the Village is required to provide a minimum of one public meeting, annually for the public, to provide input as to the adequacy of the Village’s program. The requirement may be in conjunction with or as part of a regular council or board meeting. The permit requires that discharged stormwater be free of contaminants to the maximum extent possible. The new permit became effective on March 1, 2016 and contains a variety of new and modified requirements that will impact local stormwater management programs. Such requirements address de- icing activities and de-icing material storage, climate change, environmental justice areas, dry weather outfall inspections, wet weather quality monitoring, long term operation and maintenance plans and evaluating the effectiveness of our best management practices. The six measures are:

• Public Education and Outreach

• Public Participation/Involvement

• Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination

• Construction Site Runoff Control

• Post-Construction Runoff Control

• Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping

On the regulatory side, the Village adopted Subdivision and Development Control Regulations and an Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination ordinance to provide mechanisms to support the objective. The regulations provide for detention, erosion and sediment control, and prohibitions against dumping into waterways. The Village’s overall approach to addressing the NPDES program requirements are summarized in the Stormwater Management Program Plan (SMPP). The SMPP is reviewed and updated on a regular basis to be in compliance with the permit. The Village files annual reports with the IEPA addressing the work that the Village has completed in the past year. The reports and the Village’s SMPP are available on the Village’s website. There was no further discussion.

Director Zenner addressed the Board regarding the rezoning of 244 Washington St. The petitioner is proposing to demolish the Oswego Industries building located at the northeast corner of Route 71 and Washington Street and construct a 7-11 gas station with a convenience store. The property is currently zoned M-1 Light Manufacturing. The petitioner is requesting rezoning to B-3 Community Service and Wholesale District to allow for the development of the proposed gas station and convenience store. Automotive service stations are allowed in the B-3 District. The Comprehensive Plan shows the area as commercial, residential, and mix commercial.

The building will consist of 3,062 square feet and the fueling area will have six pump stations. The convenience store will be 7-11’s new prototype store and offer fresh food options for its customers.

The building will face Washington Street with the fueling stations between the building and Washington Street. The site plan intends to utilize the existing curb cuts along Route 71 and Washington Street for access to the site. Route 71 will have a right-in/right-out as Route 71 currently has a barrier median that would prohibit a full access drive. Full access is proposed along Washington Street. The petitioner is proposing a masonry building with face brick elements along the entire bottom of the building on all four sides and face brick on the front corners of the building. The grey material is a fiber cement panel. The front of the building will contain store front windows and an awning for shade and weather protection.

Jon Silverberg, representative for 7-11, was present to answer questions.

Board and staff discussion focused on getting this development versus what is there today; egress; GW Properties is the developer; 7-11 Corporate will be the tenant until a franchisee is established; 90-120 days to open; total number of employees; will be open 24 hours; signage; demographic is strong; site design will be more balanced. There was no further discussion.

A motion was made by Trustee Perez and seconded by Trustee Olson to approve an Ordinance Approving the Rezoning to B-3 Community Service and Wholesale District and Preliminary/Final PUD for the Proposed 7-11 Located at 244 Washington Street. (First Read of Ordinance, Waiver of Second Read)

Aye: James Marter II Luis Perez Brian Thomas Terry Olson Judy Sollinger

b) Approval of a Highway Permit Resolution. Resolution No. 19-R-41

Director Hughes addressed the Board regarding highway permits for Delta Sonic. The new Delta Sonic will access US Hwy 34. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) requires a permit. By policy, the local municipality must be the permit holder. Delta Sonic requested the Village support the site development by holding the permit on behalf of the company. The Village proposes an intergovernmental agreement in which Delta Sonic insures, indemnifies, and holds harmless the Village.

Board and staff discussion focused on the permit is permanent; bonds are issued to the State directly. There was no further discussion.
