Gitter said the approval was conditional on the developer completing work on slope leveling for a section of the property. He said the village engineering will clarify the final details of this, after which the Planning Commission approval for the site plan will be in effect.

According to the site plan, submitted by project developer Ed Duquaine, the storage facility will consist of three buildings on the 2,148-acre property. Building one will be 40 feet deep and 300 feet long, with 15 units marked on the plan document. This building is arranged longitudinally from east to west along the southern boundary of the property.

The second building will be 40 feet by 280 feet, according to the plan, with 13 units marked on the site plan. The building will be oriented the same as the first building, facing north in the middle of the property.

The third building was shown on the site plan near the northern boundary of the property as being 40 feet deep by 140 feet long. The plan document showed 7 demarcated units in this building.

According to information included with the site plan, Duquaine plans to begin work on the new Re-Con Specialist Storage site this summer, in mid-July. From then until September, the project plans to work on site grading, storm sewer and the start of pavement works, including the preparation of pads for the buildings.

In October, according to site plan information, the proponent will complete seeding and tillage.
