Parcel One - 1301 W. Washington Street & Parcel two - 1409 W. Washington Street, Springfield, Illinois (Ward 8 Alderwoman Conley)
Petitioner desires to to renovate (Parcel One) for use as a 68 unit apartment and respectfully requests variation of 155.056, regarding the bulk requirement of2,500 square feet lot area per dwelling unit, to allow the use of the property as a 68 unit apartment on a lot containing 75,272 square feet instead of the 170,000 square feet required in the R-3 (b) zoning district. Parcel One has lost its nonconforming use as a 72 unit residential dwelling pursuant to Section 155.157 due to discontinued active continuous operation for a period of six months. Historically, subject property has been used as a 72 unit apartment. Petitioner additionally requests a variance of 155.091 regarding the 1 Yz accessory off-street parking spaces per dwelling unit to allow 73 off- street parking spaces, instead of the one-hundred two required. The proposed parking includes 73 spaces on Parcel One and 32 spaces on Parcel Two, and five spaces in the right-of-way on Park (for a total of 110 spaces available for subject property). Parcel Two will be used for accessory parking for the apartment complex, and for parking for the rental office which will be in the former daycare building on Parcel 2. That building will be used for a rental office, and for maintenance and security offices and storage. Only the rental office (not to exceed 400 square feet) will be open to the public. Petitioner respectfully requests for Parcel Two: a reclassification from R-2 to R-3 (b) and a C.P.U. pursuant to 155.018 ( c) (2) and 155.183 for accessory parking not on the same zoning lot as use served, this would allow 32 spaces on parcel two, a variance of 155.480 (i) (1-5), reducing the Transitional Buffer Yard on the North and West sides of Parcel Two to zero feet (Petitioner will build a solid 6 foot fence at the North and West Border of Parcel Two) and will build a 50 percent open fence along Columbia and Washington, to limit foot traffic in the parking lot.

AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE PURCHASE OF THREE GRINDING ROLLER TIRES FOR THE PULVERIZERS LOCATED IN UNIT 4 FROM WOOD GROUP USA, INC. IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $56,550.00, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES

The tires can be resurfaced after rebuilds, however, after the last rebuild, a couple of tires were beyond repair, and a new set is necessary. The loss of a pulverizer could prevent the unit from operating at full load. Wood Group is the OEM for these items. They are not a local vendor.

AN ORDINANCE APPROVING A TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONTRACT SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH THE ORTHOPEDIC CENTER OF ILLINOIS FOR 1301 S. KOKE MILL, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
This is a standard ordinance for Ethernet service from the City’s fiber optic telecommunications system.

It has been granted certificates of service authority with the Illinois Commerce Commission to provide facilities-based exchange telecommunications services in Sangamon County and interexchange telecommunications services within Illinois. The City’s network has the ability to provide WAN (wide area network) services across the system. This allows computers to pass data between remote facilities at speeds that are as fast as in the local buildings. This technology allows for the consolidation of computers, servers, and the required network equipment and enhances the facilities' capabilities. OCI has requested a 1 GB connection from their facility at 1301 S. Koke Mill to their facility at 201 E. Madison. For this service, OCI will pay $1,400 per month for the two sites for the contract over four years. The connection will be made by utilizing the existing fiber and communication infrastructure at the two facilities. OCI may elect to terminate this agreement at any time without cause, provided that Clinic shall thereupon pay the remaining monthly charges for the remainder of the four-year contract.
