Board postpones North View vote the Palatine Village Board has agreed to postpone consideration of the controversial plans to develop the six vacant lots in the North View subdivision. Some 30 North View residents looked on As the Board granted the request of Thomas c. Attorney for property owner Edward t. To delay a vote until the next aug. 28. Kearns sought the postponement be cause two of the six trustees present at monday night s meeting Are known to be against the proposal to build 18 units of condominiums on the Burley property. One trustee was absent. The proposal needs five affirmative a two thirds majority of the Vil Lage because petitions were submitted against the plans by North View residents. The trustees consider themselves caught in the with no apparent Graceful Way out. They Don t especially want to approve the Burley project and betray the North View but consider the con Dominium plans less undesirable than the shopping Center office building alternative. If the trustees go along with the Home zoning Board considers redefining Home occupation the Palatine zoning Board of appeals is considering a redefinition of what constitutes a Home but the Board acknowledges at the same time difficulties in enforcing any Home occupation guidelines. Three of the zoning Board meeting informally monday night with a Village trustee and the Village agreed to further study the present Pala Tine ordinance and Home occupation ordinances in Arlington gun View and grand Mich. The zoning Board members appeared to look favourably upon four general guidelines for Home occupations which were proposed by Village mgr. Berton g. Braun. The guidelines visible advertising outside the Home. Retail sales. Employees who do not live in the Home. Mechanical equipment which is not ordinarily used in a Home. The first two gut Ehnes already Are in the Palatine borne occupation Ordi Nance. Braun said he recognized the need for defining Home but said any provisions limiting the occupations roust be reasonable. People Call and ask if a certain occupation is All and we have to Teu them it s be said. The people who Don t Call go ahead and set up the Home and the Village would never know about Home occupations Are businesses and classes conducted for profit in private Homes. Braun said guidelines defining what constitutes a Home occupation Are difficult to enforce. We re not aware that the business is taking it s evidently not causing a problem As traffic congestion or and if it s not causing a Why should we prohibit owners and reject the they would subject the Village to what some trustees say would surely be a losing court Battle. And if the Village the trustees the outcome would be far worse from the standpoint of the North View homeowners than if the Village Board agreed to Grant the reaming be cause the present petition is for Multi family zoning and a lawsuit would seek commercial use of the property. The North View mean Are unwilling to Compromise. They remain Adamant in their opposition to Multi family dwellings in the sub Divi and Are willing to risk the threat of a suit to keep the condominiums out the Are More and they cite the 13-Story Sellergren project under construction just East of North View serves As a sore re minder of the last time the trustees went along with area homeowners but were overruled in court. Attorney Kearns is openly confident that the court would Grant rezone to if the Village does pointing to the continued commercial development on North West coupled with the nearby Segergren precedent. The trustees twice have upheld objections to development of the Burley prop erty by both North View residents and the plan commission. The present proposal for con Dom Nhun units is expected to be the last request for Village Board approval Kearns has indicated that Burley definitely would take the matter to court if the request is turned Down locally.
