Arlington Heights Daily Herald (Newspaper) - May 2, 1980, Arlington Heights, Illinois Northwest Arlington Heights Friday May 2, 1980 Section 1�?5 the daily he Aid High Rise Park fee questioned advertisement by Mary poker Herald staff writer the $50,000 Park District donation required from the Developer of two recently approved downtown High rises May not be enough Arlington Heights trustee Pauline Buss contends. A fifty thousand dollars might not be sufficient a mrs. Buss said in urging the Village to reconsider its decision. She noted that the District agreed to that amount in 1978, when the Village approved plans by a different Developer for a single 18-Story building on the same site. Plans approved by the Village Board last month Call for two buildings one to stories the other 13, to be built North of Miner Street Between Dunton Avenue and the Western half of Evergreen Avenue. Because the project is larger than the one approved two years ago mrs. Buss said the developers required donation to the Park District could be larger. She said she wants a special Village committee to be appointed to study zoning in the downtown area and determine a Park site to serve residents there. In approving the new project the Village Board required that the Developer a the Arlington associates general partnership a group headed by Evanston financier Bernard Bell a live up to an earlier agreement with the former Developer calling for a $50,000 donation. Park comr. Kathryn Graham said the District has never met with Bell to negotiate a new donation. A the Market has changed the Park District would have liked More a she said. The District would like to buy land in the downtown area to provide residents there with More Green space she said. However mrs. Graham said she believes the Park District not the Village should determine where and How the donation should be spent. The villages current donation ordinance Calls for developers of residential buildings to donate land to Park and school districts according to a formula based on acreage. If land is not available developers Are required to donate Money instead based on a similar formula. Under the ordinance the Money must be used to buy land for Parks or school Sites to serve the development. Since 1977, a committee of the Vil Lage plan commission has been reviewing ways to make the ordinance More equitable. Among the ideas the commission has considered Are having the formula based on density instead of acreage and allowing the districts to use the Money for capital expenditures like equipment purchases. Plan comr. Michael Silverman said the school districts Haven t been accepting the donations because they done to need land and under the ordinance that Sall they could use the Money for. The Park District does t need More land As much As it needs to develop the land it has he said. A a it a kind of dumb to get More land when they can to improve it a he said.
