5.0 COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS

ZONING ORDINANCE - 5.0 COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS

5.0 - PURPOSE

Commercial district regulations are intended to govern the location, intensity and method of development of the businesses, offices, and services needed to serve the residents and commercial patrons of Gurnee. The regulations in each district provide for groupings of business, office, and/or service uses that are compatible in the type of commodity sold, the activity performed, and/or the services offered. Petitioners for commercial zoning are encouraged to apply for such zoning only in areas designated for "commercial and services" or "office-research" uses on the official "Interim Land Use Plan of Gurnee, Illinois." Seven (7) classifications of commercial activity are provided for:

COMMERCIAL/BUSINESS DISTRICTS:
 

C/B-1 - Neighborhood Business District
C/B-2 - Community Business District


COMMERCIAL/OFFICE DISTRICTS:
 

C/O-1 - Restricted Office District
C/O-2 - Office and Research District


COMMERCIAL/SPECIALIZED DISTRICTS:
 

C/S-1 - Outdoor Recreation District
C/S-2 - Automobile Supported Business District
C/S-3 - Village-Center Residence/Business District



For the purpose of determining the restrictiveness of the seven (7) commercial zoning classifications, each of the districts shall be deemed to be independently and equally restrictive, with no hierarchy, cumulativeness, or progression applying among them.

The C/B-2 Community Business District is an intensive commercial classification in which the commingling of many retail, service and office uses are permitted. Structures located in this district may vary from freestanding buildings to larger community shopping centers. Shopping centers which minimize curb cuts and signage, while maximizing aesthetics, are the preferred type of development in this zone.

Normally, this district is located only at the convergence of major arterial thoroughfares.

5.2A.1 Description of District

The purpose of the Village Center Overlay District (C/B-2A) is to facilitate opportunities for small scale pedestrian-oriented development and the potential for mixed use developments in a manner that reinforces the character of existing uses in areas situated at O'Plaine Road and Washington Street

The Village seeks, through these requirements, to ensure that areas in this overlay zone will provide an attractive setting for small scale pedestrian-oriented developments that may include a mix of land uses including: retail, office, or service uses on the first floor and possible second story uses for offices or residential. Village Center Overlay District developments are encouraged to include wide sidewalks, street trees, ornamental lighting, street furniture, and public meeting places to help create a community atmosphere with character. The type of uses encouraged in this District include retail trade, commercial services, offices, cultural events, recreational options, governmental buildings, and possible second story residential dwellings. The C/B-2A is designed to accomplish these goals through the regulation of uses, lot and bulk standards, development design guidelines, and environment standards conducive to select areas of the Village.

5.2A.2 Designation of Village Center Overlay District

The C/B-2A shall function as an Overlay District to the underlying C/B-2 District and shall be thus referenced on the official Zoning Map of the Village, as amended.

The provisions of this overlay district shall serve as a supplement to the underlying zoning district. The standards prescribed herein shall control the overall development in this Overlay District and where there exists any conflict between the provisions of this section and those of the underlying zoning district or the planned unit development regulations contained in Article 9, the provisions of this section shall apply.

5.2B.12 MAJOR AND MINOR CHANGES

As noted in the first Section of the Design Guidelines for the East Grand Gateway Area: "One of the quickest and easiest ways to improve the appearance of a building is to clean it. That section also notes the benefits of removing absolute hardware, repairing broken glass, removing old paint, and similar maintenance type activities as being desirable. The regulations for major and minor changes are intended to support all efforts for reinvestments in the area including continued maintenance. The procedures as outlined in Section 5.2B.9.2 are intended to recognize the hierarchy of review that may be required for continued maintenance, minor changes, and major changes. These procedures also recognize the potential for some subjective judgments on change that may result from continuing maintenance as well as minor and major changes; and as such provides for expeditious processing by administrative Staff and/or actions by appointed or elected officials that will not allow possible subjective decisions to be delayed.

1. A minor change includes changes to the exterior of the building or site as follows:

 a. Change of less than ten percent (10%) of the wall area of the building façade facing a public street or any wall of a building oriented to an abutting residential use.
b. Change of less than twenty percent (20%) to an interior side or rear of the wall area of a building façade that is not oriented to an abutting residential use or public street.
c. The above changes include but are not limited to changes in height, dimension, signs, building materials, lights, windows and doors, and colors.
d. Minor changes shall also include but are not limited to the following: changes to the exterior of the site that changes the number of parking spaces by less than six (6) or less than five percent (5%) of the total number of existing spaces, whichever is greater.
e. Changes of existing elements of the exterior lighting, landscaping, or paved areas consistent with the Design Guidelines and the Lighting Provisions of the Zoning Ordinance.

2. The replacement of existing broken or obsolete elements of the building or site improvements as well as cleaning or repainting or other changes with similar colors of paints and/or similar materials of similar colors may be considered continuing maintenance and not a minor or major change. Such continuing maintenance may or may not require a Village Permit and this District shall be subject to the same Village regulations and procedures as other areas of the Village concerning review and/or permits for various types of continuing maintenance improvements.

3. Any changes other than a minor change or continuing maintenance shall be deemed a major change. The Village Staff and/or Plan Commission can make a recommendation on the classification of a change as a major or minor change to the Village Board for Village Board Action.

5.3 - C/O-1 RESTRICTED OFFICE DISTRICT

5.3.1 - DESCRIPTION OF DISTRICT

The C/O-1 Restricted Office District is intended to provide for the development of small office structures which can be located proximate to residential areas. Buildings located in this district are generally small one- to three-story structures and can accommodate most professional office functions which require modest physical space. Also permitted are structures originally constructed for residential purposes which are suitable for use as small offices and which are--from land use and zoning perspectives--justified to be put to such use. These structures may either remain in residential usage or be adapted for use as small offices. Retail uses are severely limited and consist only of uses which directly supplement an office use (i.e., a pharmacy supplements a medical clinic). The district is normally located on primary or secondary thoroughfares, is relatively small in size, and requires protective measures to make the uses permitted more compatible with adjacent land uses.
