Collins PRESIDENT Michelle Gibas VILLAGE CLERK TRUSTEES Harry Benton Margie Bonuchi Kevin M. Calkins Patricia T. Kalkanis Cally Larson Brian Wojowski BACKGROUND The applicant is proposing to develop Unit 10 of Springbank as an age -targeted development of 107 single-family detached lots. The applicant has submitted a proposed annexation agreement amendment to specifically authorize and approve the development plan, including lot sizes and setbacks, as illustrated on the site plan to the annexation agreement amendment (Exhibit C-1). If the amendment is approved, the applicant would follow up with an application for special use for planned development and preliminary/final plat. Unit 10 of Springbank is approximately 48 acres of undeveloped land east of Drauden Road. The parcel includes a portion of the west bank of the DuPage River, although the site is raised up from the river by 10 feet or more. The adjacent land uses, zoning, and street classifications are below.

Lockport Street Plainfield, IL 60544 Phone (815) 436-7093 Fax (815) 436-1950 Web www.plainfield-il.org REPORT TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES Page #2 of 3 1893-090320.AAA 10/15/2020 SPRINGBANK UNIT 10 DISCUSSION The applicant is requesting approval of an amendment to the annexation agreement for Springbank to permit construction of 107 ranch -style, single-family detached homes in an age -targeted development. The overall Springbank project was annexed in 2004 and includes approximately, 1,880 homes, primarily single-family detached lots. The Village Board considered a concept plan for the project at the January 27, 2020 meeting of the Committee of the Whole. The applicant has modified the plans to respond to recommendations provided by staff and trustees to the initial concept plan. Specifically, the smallest floor plan has been omitted and the ranch homes now range in size from 1,337 sf to 1,723 sf. ANALYSIS The proposed amendment to the annexation agreement sets forth the following: • The builder is required to develop the project as a special use for planned development and the Village agrees to approve the special use provided the subsequent application is consistent with the annexation agreement amendment. • The Village agrees to approve the proposed site plan and commits to approving the future preliminary and final plat consistent with the site plan. • The Village agrees to approve the architectural plans and product details outlined in Exhibit B to the annexation agreement amendment. These include the identification of approximately 14 lots as key lots to receive enhanced architectural and landscape treatment and minimum six-inch (6") eave line. • The builder is required to establish covenants with a number of provisions, which will implement the age -targeted nature of the project. For example, sheds, pools, trampolines, basketball hoops and fences (excluding invisible fences) shall be prohibited. In addition, the HOA shall be responsible for exterior landscape and snow removal maintenance. Regarding the site plan, the neighborhood has two points of access: a full boulevard access point at Drauden Road aligns with Rock Drive to the west. A secondary access connection is also proposed at Forest Edge Drive in the northwest corner of the development. The plan proposes a path loop in the southwest area of the development as well as a path looping around the proposed detention in the southeast corner. Staff supports the proposed development. Staff believes the age -targeted nature of the project would diversify the Village's housing options and provide for what is currently an unmet need. There is a surplus of conventional single-family detached lots approved for Springbank. The development would have a positive impact on District 202, as the project would generate payment of impact fees and property taxes with very little impact on the school district. CONCLUSION/RECOMMENDATION Staff supports the proposed amendment to the annexation agreement. In advance of any public comment and discussion by the Village Board, staff recommends approval. Should the Board of Trustees concur, the following motion is offered for your consideration: REPORT TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES Page #3 of 3 1893-090320.AAA 10/15/2020 SPRINGBANK UNIT 10 I move we direct the Village Attorney to prepare an ordinance granting approval of the proposed second amendment to the annexation agreement for Springbank of Plainfield to authorize development of an age -targeted neighborhood of up to 107 homes in Springbank Unit 10.
