Big Red 6

The Barrington Hills Chronicle (a Riding Club of Barrington Hills splinter group), posted what follows on Wednesday:

“The Riding Club of Barrington Hills is inviting all volunteers this Saturday, May 14th, to a roadside clean-up campaign on Route 62 (Algonquin Road). A meeting at the the Riding Center on Bateman Road will start at 8:30am (this Saturday, May 14th), or feel free to join whenever it is convenient for you. Every Saturday in May is the clean-up plan.”

In addition, three additional events are taking place tomorrow:

These activities are occurring at the same time tomorrow morning, primarily along Bateman, Algonquin, Brinker, and County Line Roads.

Readers are encouraged to exercise extreme caution when driving in these areas. On any given day, the Village has two patrol people covering the entire Village, and even with additional resources allocated, they hopefully will not be overwhelmed.

Vintage

Plans for a new gated community in South Barrington got a preliminary approval from the village board Thursday night.

South Barrington-based Vintage Luxury Homes wants to build 65 homes on the south side of Palatine Road, east of Ridgeview Drive. The development would be called Sundance of South Barrington.

The houses would be from 3,000 square feet to 5,500 square feet and cost at least $1.3 million each, officials have said. Swimming pools, a fitness center, athletic courts and an area for outdoor events are planned, too, documents show.

Mayor Paula McCombie said the custom-built, farmhouse-style homes would create a unique-looking development in South Barrington.

“I’m excited about it,” she said. “I think it’ll be beautiful.”

A large home and horse barns on the 74-acre property now would be razed.

The village board also voted to rezone the property from single-family residential to a planned unit development.

SB Development

A developer wants to build a gated community called Sundance of South Barrington on the south side of Palatine Road.

A proposal for a new gated community with 65 homes in South Barrington will get another review by village officials Thursday night.

The plan commission will meet at 6 p.m. to consider a request to rezone the 74-acre property at 61 E. Palatine Road as a planned use development, among other aspects of the would-be developer’s proposal. It’s zoned for a single-family home now.

Afterward, the village board will hold a special meeting to consider annexing the land South Barrington and rezoning it. Both meetings are set for village hall, 30 S. Barrington Road.

A large home and horse barns are on the property now. They would be razed, officials have said.

South Barrington-based Vintage Luxury Homes wants to build the housing development. It would be called Sundance of South Barrington.

The houses would be between 3,000 square feet and 5,500 square feet and cost at least $1.3 million each, officials have said.

You can learn more about a redevelopment plan for the former Allstate Insurance Co. campus in South Barrington, and weigh in on the proposal, during a public hearing Tuesday.

A large, light industrial and business complex has been proposed for the roughly 67-acre site, on the southeast corner of Higgins and Bartlett roads. The Arboretum of South Barrington shopping center is on a different corner of the same intersection.

Plans from Texas-based Hillwood Development Co. call for five buildings ranging from 116,730 square feet to 141,950 square feet each. In total, the buildings would occupy 647,790 square feet of space and create the largest industrial complex in the village.

The new development would be called Gateway 90 at South Barrington.

Tuesday’s public hearing will be held during the plan commission meeting beginning 6:30 p.m. at village hall, 30 S. Barrington Road.

Officials will consider requests from the developer to rezone the property for the proposed development; grant a special use permit for office, warehouse, distribution, product processing and data centers; and grant some zoning code variations.

Barrington Village Hall

The Barrington Village Board recently approved a $39 million budget for the village’s fiscal year 2022.

Trustees voted 6-0 at the Dec. 13 board meeting to approve the spending plan, after a public hearing on it was held the same night. There were no public comments at the hearing, and Trustee Emily Young was absent.

The budget will be effective on the first day of the new year, as the village’s fiscal year runs Jan. 1 through Dec. 31.

“This budget, I believe, is fiscally responsible as well as responsive to the service needs of the community,” said Village Manager Scott Anderson. “The spending plan is well aligned with the vision set forth by the elected board and its strategic plan. While this budget is best considered a maintenance budget, commitments are made to continuing, and in some cases, improving our current service levels. At the same time, there is a significant investment in the village’s infrastructure that will occur next year.”

Anderson explained there are 10 independently budgeted funds that roll into to the spending plan, but most of the village’s operating expenses come from the general fund – including police, fire and public works. He noted an uptick in expenses for the village-owned Barrington White House, with a $544,841 appropriation that he said represents the support of programming in the historic downtown venue.

“Programming is opening up now and we’re having more in-person performances which is driving some of that expenditure,” Anderson said.
