PLAN COMMISSION
AGENDA REPORT
SUBJECT:
150 and 191 Linden St., Saints Faith, Hope and Charity
Case No. 16-02-SU (continued from previous meeting)
DATE:
February 18, 2016
PREPARED BY:
Brian Norkus, Assistant Director of Community Development
Saints Faith, Hope and Charity is requesting a Special Use Permit and variations in order
to build an addition consisting of a Parish Center east of the main church, together with
circulation and parking improvements. In addition to the proposed improvements on the
parcels east of Linden St., a synthetic turf athletic field and parking improvements are
also proposed on the parcels west of Linden St.
The Plan Commission received information and public comment at its January 27, 2016
meeting, and continued the case to allow further study of certain building and site plan
elements.
The applicants have submitted an addendum to their previous written application
materials (Attachment A), summarizing the various changes to the plan. In addition, the
addendum notes that the Church invited neighbors to meetings on January 28th and
February 17 to discuss concerns and describe changes. Finally, the addendum describes
neighbor response that the Church has received.
Revised Plans (Attachment B) incorporate the following changes:





The Synthetic turf field size has been reduced in area by 15%, to a total area of
27,000sf.
The turf field has narrowed, increasing the setback along the western property line
from 12’ to 15’.
The play equipment zone south of the turf field has been further refined, detailed as
two separate spaces; a hard court area is described as accommodating playground
games and PE class instruction, and an adjacent area holds a play set.
The hard court has shifted to the east, increasing the setback along the western
property line from 12’ to 48’.
The play equipment has shifted to the east, increasing the setback along the western
property line from 12’ to 28’.
In addition, the applicant’s report that the following additional changes have been
implemented, following a neighbor meeting held by the Church:

The combined size of all elements proposed has been reduced from the originally
submitted and approved plan.


The setbacks have increased, moving all play activity away from the adjacent
property.
The plant types have changed and trees have been specified to attract birds and other
native wildlife.
All evergreens were removed and border landscaping was increased.
An open picket fence (4’) has been specified instead of a solid board fence (6’) on
the north property line.
An organic “cool temp” turf infill system will be specified to keep surface
temperatures of the turf lower.
Plan Commission standards for review
The Plan Commission is charged with evaluating each Special Use Permit request for
consistency with the Comprehensive Plan. To assist the Plan Commission in making such
findings, draft findings are attached (identical to those included in the January meeting
materials).
Draft findings represent relevant policy statements and recommendations
contained in the Winnetka Comprehensive Plan. These findings are intended to provide a
means by which the project can be informally “scored”, and thus evaluated for conformance
with the Comprehensive Plan.
Consideration by other Boards
On January 11 the Zoning Board of Appeals voted unanimously to recommend approval
of the Special Use Permit and associated zoning variations.
The Design Review Board considered this matter at its January 21 meeting, and is
scheduled to resume discussion at its February 18th meeting.
This request is subject to final approval by the Village Council.

With the Village of Winnetka Comprehensive Plan
After considering the application, the Commission makes its findings as follows,
Chapter II – Vision, Goals and Objectives
(1) The proposed special use (is/is not) consistent with the Goal to “Preserve and

significant structures that create the attractive appearance and peaceful, single-family
residential character of the Village.” [Community Goals: Village Character and
Appearance page 2-1].

excellence and the enrichment of Winnetka’s religious and cultural environment”.
[Community Goals: Educational and Community Institutions page 2-1].
(3) The proposed special use (is/is not) consistent with the Goal to “Limit commercial,
institutional and residential development within the Village to minimize the
potentially adverse impacts on adjacent residential neighborhoods and to prevent the
need for significant increases in infrastructure (streets, parking, utilities, sewers) and
other community resources (schools, parks, recreational facilities, etc.)” [Community
Goals: Growth Management page 2-2].
(4) The proposed special use (is/is not) consistent with the objective to “Ensure that
commercial, institutional and residential development is appropriate to the character
of and minimizes the adverse impact on its surrounding neighborhood” [Village

Attachment B
Brian Please find attached our Design Review Board Resubmittal for the Saints Faith, Hope & Charity – Parish
Center project for consideration by the Village of Winnetka at the February 18, 2016 DRB Meeting.
Updates have been made in response to comments at our January 21, 2016 DRB presentation, as well as
subsequent feedback and meetings with the neighbors, including:
•
•
•
Roof plan, axonometric views, rendering: Refinement of mechanical equipment screening
Roof plan, elevations, rendering, exterior details: Refinement of canopy design
Proposed Siteplan and Landscape plans: See narrative below:
Siteplan Narrative:
The site plan for the SS Faith Hope & Charity Campus has gone through a number of detailed refinements
since receiving approval at the January 11th Zoning Board of Appeals. These refinements were primarily
concentrated on the West Campus Athletic Field portion of the property. It is of note that though the details
of the site plan on both the West and East portions of the campus have become more defined, the Variances
that were approved at the ZBA have been observed.
The West Campus details
•
The Synthetic turf field size has been reduced to 27,000sf. This is an area reduction of 15%.
•
The play equipment zone has been divided into two adjacent spaces. A hard court area for
playground games and to accommodate PE class instruction and a play set.
•
The turf field has narrowed, increasing the setback along the western property line from 12’ (“by
right”) to 15’.
•
The hard court has shifted to the east, increasing the setback along the western property line from
12’ to 48’.
•
The play equipment has shifted to the east, increasing the setback along the western property line
from 12’ to 28’.
Communication with the adjacent neighbors
A meeting between the church & school administration, field committee and the adjacent neighbors was held
on the evening of January 28th. All adjacent neighbors were present. Some neighbors had concerns and
comments that were heard by the FHC staff and some had questions that were sufficiently answered by the
OKW team. At the conclusion of the meeting most neighbors felt positive about the project and were
supportive of the efforts. The neighbors offered suggestions of items they’d like altered or removed from the
prosed plan. After much thought and consideration the FHC team has identified several adjustments they can
make as a compromise to these requests, without negatively impacting the programming intended for the
space.
•
The combined size of all elements proposed has been reduced from the originally submitted and
approved plan.
•
The setbacks have increased, moving all play activity away from the adjacent property.
•
The plant types have changed and trees have been specified to attract birds and other native wildlife.
•
All evergreens were removed and border landscaping was increased.
•
An open picket fence (4’) has been specified instead of a solid board fence (6’) on the north property
line.
•
An organic “cool temp” turf infill system will be specified to keep surface temperatures of the turf
lower. (Specification cut sheets submitted)
In the spirit of collaboration, FHC intends to host a follow-up meeting with the neighbors to go over the
proposed changes prior to the Design Review Board hearing on February 18th.
Feel free to call or email if you have questions or concerns.

PLAN COMMISSION
AGENDA REPORT
SUBJECT:
1112 Willow Road – Crow Island School Special Use Permit for
temporary modular classrooms
Zoning Case No. 16-05-SU
DATE:
February 18, 2016
PREPARED BY:
Brian Norkus, Assistant Director of Community Development
Winnetka Public Schools District 36 is requesting a Special Use Permit and variations
which would allow the placement of two temporary modular classrooms at Crow Island
Elementary. The proposed classrooms would be located southwest of the existing school
building, setback 10’-0” from the west property line (Park District property).
Schools are permitted within residentially zoned areas, but are classified as a “Special
Use” in order to allow for the evaluation of proposed modifications. Establishment or the
alteration of Special Uses is subject to review by the Plan Commission, Zoning Board of
Appeals, and Design Review Board, with final consideration by the Village Council.
As proposed, two modular units would be located southwest of the existing school, with
units to be painted a color to match the existing school brick.
Lighting will be provided through a combination of existing pole mounted fixtures,
supplemented by lights at each entry and on the underside of a covered canopy connecting
the modular units to the main school building.
Plan Commission standards for review
The attached application materials address specifically six standards for the granting of a
Special Use Permit, which are subject to evaluation by Zoning Board of Appeals, Plan
Commission, and Village Council.
The Plan Commission is charged with evaluating each Special Use Permit request for
consistency with the Comprehensive Plan. To assist the Plan Commission in making such
findings, draft findings are attached, which represent relevant policy statements and
recommendations contained in the Winnetka Comprehensive Plan. These findings are
intended to provide a means by which the project can be informally “scored”, and thus
evaluated for conformance with the Comprehensive Plan.
Consideration by other Advisory Boards
This matter is scheduled for consideration by the Design Review Board on February 18th
and by the Zoning Board of Appeals on March 14th. The Village Council has final
jurisdiction on this request.

Explanation and Resolution of Need
There are three primary and related reasons for requesting temporary classrooms on the Crow
Island School property:
● Current enrollment requires 21 classroom “sections”
● Enrollment projections are expected to slightly decline
● School Board is considering adding an Extended Day Kindergarten program
Current Enrollment:
Typically, there are four sections (homerooms) per grade level (20 total “sections”) at Crow
Island School. Each section requires a classroom space for the core instructional program;
however, students also participate in specials during the week. Specials include kinetic wellness,
art, music, Spanish, and Resource Center time. Each special also requires a space for instruction.
Although less than ideal, we have needed to utilize shared spaces to meet the demands of the
schedule.
The first grade enrollment this school year is currently at 91, and students are divided into five
sections. This additional fifth section required a classroom space, which displaced space from
other programs. It also required additional shared spaces for specials, as each section of students
requires 13, 30-minute specials classes per week.
While the core instructional program is offered with fidelity, the instructional space is limited
and tight. Every available space in the building is being utilized for programming, including
small group instruction, interventions, and individualized student support.
Enrollment Projections:
Crow Island School’s enrollment is expected to slightly decline over the next three years (2015 384 students; 2019 - 368 students) with an expected loss of the fifth grade level section in 2019
(348 students). Therefore, more costly and long-term solutions, such as redistricting or
construction, are not as feasible as an intermediate solution. The District will continue to monitor
enrollment and other alternatives if actual enrollment differs from the projection.
Extended Kindergarten Day:
The District is in its final stages of completing a study regarding extending the kindergarten day
at The Winnetka Public Schools. Currently, all kindergarten students attend school for half day
sessions, which enables each classroom to serve two sections of kindergarten. Extending the
Page 8
kindergarten day will require one additional classroom for each section of kindergarten. Based
on enrollment projections and experiences from other schools, the District anticipates that
kindergarten enrollment will increase if an extended day option is made available. This could
result in the need for up to 10 kindergarten classrooms across the three elementary schools.
Current capacity for extended day kindergarten instruction across the three elementary buildings
is eight classrooms.
Rationale:
Adding two temporary classrooms at Crow Island School for the next three school years (2016 2019) allows for space relief and greater flexibility while the extra section of students (currently
in 1st grade) are attending Crow Island School. There will be more space to meet with children
requiring small group instruction. The use of shared instructional space will also be minimized
due to the extra temporary classrooms. These classrooms would installed in summer of 2016.
The second two classroom unit may be installed if an extended day Kindergarten program is
approved for implementation for the 2017-2018 school year unless other alternatives are
considered. The School Board is expected to vote on this topic in May 2016. These classrooms
would not be installed until summer of 2017.
The addition of temporary classrooms also allows the The Winnetka Public School District time
to monitor enrollment patterns across the three elementary schools and to study options for
boundary shifts to better balance enrollment across our three K-4 buildings. This sort of study
requires extensive input from our community and strategic planning for communication and
decision-making. If enrollment projections prove low, it will also afford us time to consider
construction needs and planning, if necessary. In summary, by 2019, the District will have a
long-term plan to address the enrollment patterns and building capacity at our five schools. The
temporary classroom space use for up to the next four years provides us with the necessary time
to thoughtfully plan our course of action with community input and intensive study. It is also
possible that the situation may self-correct and the school could resume operations within its
existing structure.

Attachment 2
Compliance with the standards for granting a Special Use Permit is addressed as
follows:
1. The modular unit will be installed and maintained in compliance with the
requirements of the Illinois School Code governing the education and
safety of children and in accordance with applicable Village ordinances
and codes.
2. The modular unit is being positioned in a location that is furthest removed
from residential property and is adjacent to a wooded area. Landscaping
will be added around other sides of the unit.
3. The positioning of the modular unit does not create an impediment to
other development. A large amount of open District land remains
between the unit and residential development.
4. The positioning of the modular unit does not impact pedestrian and
vehicle traffic.
5. Utilities and other connectivity to the building and safety features will be
added in accordance with the Illinois School Code and applicable local
ordinances and codes. Access roads and drainage will be maintained.
6. Installation and operation of the modular units will confirm with the
requirements of the Illinois School Code and applicable Village ordinances
and codes.
