Sugar Groveâ€”The Sugar Grove Village Board on Tuesday voted 5-0 to approve a planned unit development amendment that would grant the health club Division One a permitted-use access to parking.
Village Trustee Mari Johnson abstained from the vote because she is a member of the health club.
The amendment added health clubs to the list of businesses approved for permitted use of parking lots 1-7 in the Landings subdivision. Health clubs were previously granted only a special-use access to parking.
â€œWe’re excited to have a new business opening up in the Landings, and it’s great to see a retail space get taken up,â€ Village President Sean Michels said. â€œ(The health club) is a great addition to the village.â€
The Landings parking area is divided into eight lots, with the eighth lot serving the Landings Office Park.
The village enacted its Landings subdivision amendment after the Plan Commission on Aug. 25 voted 5-0 in favor of recommending the Village Board approve the amendment to the Landings PUD ordinance.
â€œIt’s great for the community to have places to go, and I think we’ve got a lot to be proud of with the businesses coming to town,â€ Michels said.
