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.

“This 6.79 acre lot is located on Illinois Route 25 also known as Elgin Rd in Barrington Hills, Illinois. Its 325 foot frontage and 910.39 foot depth give it many possibilities. Located adjacent to the north of the new Longmeadow Parkway right of way. Longmeadow Parkway when completed will have great access over the Fox River and will continue west past Randall Road saving time and traffic through the town of Algonquin.

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.

SB Industrial Proposal

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.

Land Conservancy

The Land Conservancy of McHenry County recently acquired 300 acres of land near Bull Valley. The nonprofit organization has plans to turn the land into a nature park, while preserving its five miles of bridle trails. (Provided by Lisa Haderlein with the Land Conservancy of McHenry County)

A 300-acre farm near Bull Valley, host of various natural and wildlife, as well as several miles of bridle trails, could soon be home to a nature park.

The Land Conservancy of McHenry County, a nonprofit working to protect the county’s natural areas, acquired the plot of land, called the Thompson Road Farm, earlier in March. The land amounts to almost 324 total acres and sits near the intersections of Thompson Road and North Fleming Road along Route 120.

The acquisition is the biggest in the non-profit’s history, said Lisa Haderlein, group’s executive director. The land had predominantly been home to private farms and horse riding trails dating back to the mid-20th century.

“Natural resources are at the heart of Bull Valley,” Haderlein said. “Being able to preserve this, … it anchors the whole character of the community.”

The project to turn the land into a park will be a multi-year one, Haderlein said, but the aim is to have at least some access to the land ready this year. It will be opened on a “limited basis” while the initial ecological restoration takes place, the group said in a news release this month.

Before it can be opened to the public, some work will need to be done. In its history, about half of the area was originally a wetland that was drained for farming. In the coming months and years, Haderlein said the goal will be to help the wetlands reestablish themselves.
