A property that has held commercial businesses since the 1970s was finally given commercial zoning status in Bourbonnais during Monday night’s Village Board meeting.
The former R-5 Multi-Family Residence at 107 Bernard Drive was rezoned unanimously by the Village Board after recommendation from the Village Planning Commission. The proposed lease at the location was dependent on the rezoning efforts.
The newly rezoned building will be the home to Dr. Roth’s Mobile Vet Service, P.C. The business will still utilize its mobile vet services and use the address as a base for surgical procedures when needed. No kennels will be used outdoors at the location.
The zoning ordinance also required a special use permit. Dr. Roth appeared before the Planning Commission in June to apply for the permit.
“The planning commission made some recommendations on criteria for granting the special use. Only allowing six animals at a time in the building and limiting their hours of operation for the facility.” Administrator Laurie Cyr during a village board meeting June 13th.
The change in zoning is not expected to result in any significant changes to traffic patterns on Bernard St or East Marsile St.
Prior to the Veterinarian, the building had been used as a variety of businesses throughout the years, including a home goods store, salon, spa, and insurance agency.
