3201 Horizon Drive (Ward 3/Alderwoman Turner)
(No desB-1, Highway Business Service District, Section, 155.033. A petition for a conditional permitted use pursuant to Section 155.033 (c), Conditional Permitted Uses in the B-1, Highway Business Service District: adult-use cannabis dispensing organization. Petitioner requests a Conditional Permitted Use of the property for adult use-cannabis dispensing organization under what is anticipated to be newly amended Section 155.033(c) - Conditional Permitted Uses in the Highway Business Service District. Recommend approval of the requested Conditional Permitted Use limited to the existing building footprint. The suggested limit to the existing building footprint is proposed to minimize any potential adverse effects. The petitioner submitted evidence demonstrating the 1,500-foot separation requirement from pre-existing churches, daycares, parks, and schools is met. As there are no other adult-use or medical cannabis dispensaries in the immediate area, staff believes the 1,500-foot separation requirement between dispensaries or adult-use cannabis dispensaries from Section 155.497(a) does not apply to the proposed Conditional Permitted Use. Staff also concludes that the proposed Conditional Permitted Use, with the suggested limitation, meets the other applicable code requirements for a Conditional Permitted Use of this type at this particular location.cription available)

628 E. Adams Street (Ward 5/Alderman Proctor)
Conditional Permitted Uses in the S-3, central shopping district: adult-use cannabis dispensing organization, and a variance of Section 155.497 (c), Special Requirements for Dispensing Organizations: Parking. Petitioner requests a Conditional Permitted Use of the property for adult use-cannabis dispensing organization under what is anticipated to be newly amended Section 155.032(c) - Conditional Permitted Uses in the Central Shopping District, and variance of the strict application of 155.497 ( c), as the property is located in the S-3 zoning district. Recommend approval. Regarding the Conditional Permitted Use, the petitioner submitted evidence demonstrating the 1,000-foot separation requirement from pre-existing daycares and schools is met. Section 155.497(a) of the code states in the fourth paragraph: "Additionally, dispensing organizations or Adult-Use dispensing located in the S3 zoning district shall be a minimum of 1,000 feet from all other dispensing organizations or Adult-Use dispensing organizations, unless the dispensing organization is also issued an Adult-Use dispensing organization license by the State, as measured from the parcel boundaries." As the Adult-Use and medical cannabis dispensaries in this particular case will be operated by the same entity, staff believes the 1,000-foot separation requirement mentioned above does not apply in this specific case. Staff also concludes that the proposed Conditional Permitted Use meets the other applicable code requirements for a Conditional Permitted Use of this type at this particular location. Regarding the requested variance, the subject property is located on a built-out block in the S-3 district, where the code contemplates properties with no on-site parking due to the built-out nature of the central business district. The regulations that require on-site parking for adult-use cannabis dispensaries conflict with allowing these uses in a district, i.e. S-3, that stipulates no on-site parking is required

Petitioner also requests a variance of the strict application of Section 155.497 (c), as the property is located in the S-3 zoning district. Recommend approval of the Conditional Permitted Use limited to the on-premise consumption area identified as "620 Adams -On-Premise Consumption Area" in the petition and its exhibits. The on-premise consumption area will be used in conjunction with an existing dispensary and a proposed adult-use cannabis dispensing organization that meets the applicable setback requirements of Section 155.497(a) and the other applicable regulations in the code. Recommend approval of the requested variance. The subject property is located on a built-out block in the S-3 district, where the code contemplates properties with no on-site parking due to the built-out nature of the central business district. The regulations that require on-site parking for onpremise consumption areas, like with dispensaries and adult use dispensaries, conflict with allowing these uses in a district, S-3,that stipulates no on-site parking is required

AN ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING CHANGE ORDER NO. 1 FOR A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION AND ADDITIONAL FUNDING IN THE AMOUNT OF $1,600,000.00 UNDER CONTRACT NO. UE17-01-80 – GENERATING FACILITIES SCAFFOLDING CONTRACT WITH APACHE INDUSTRIAL UNITED, INC. FOR A TOTAL AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $6,750,000.00, FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
Ordinance No. 141-04-17 awarded bid Contract UE17-01-80 - Generating Facilities Scaffolding to Apache Industrial United, Inc. (“Apache”) for an amount not to exceed $4,500,000.00. Apache was the lowest evaluated bidder based on Time and Material (T&M) rates. The contract was for a three-year term, covering fiscal years 2018 through 2020, and contained a provision that allows for contract extension upon mutual agreement. Ordinance No. 001-01-2020 authorized an additional $650,000.00 in funding for the cost of unanticipated scaffolding requirements that arose. The additional funding was needed to cover the remaining contract timeframe, which ends February 28, 2020. CWLP made inquiries with three other scaffolding companies for a cost comparison. Apache was still the lowest for T&M rates. Therefore, it would be in the best financial interest of the City to extend Contract No. UE17-01-80 instead of re-bidding the contract. This Ordinance authorizes Change Order No. 1 to extend contract for an additional year, ending February 28, 2021. This extension will cost $1,600,000.00, and it increases the total amount payable under the said contract to $6,750,000.00. All other terms of the agreement remain the same. This contract extension will cover all scaffolding needs at the generating facility for the 2021 fiscal year. Apache is not a local vendor.

AN ORDINANCE APPROVING A PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, OFFICE OF RECREATION AND PARKS RESOURCES IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $90,434.00 TO PERFORM A RECREATIONAL DEMAND STUDY FOR THE SPRINGFIELD SUPPLEMENTAL WATER SUPPLY PROJECT FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
This Ordinance approves and authorizes a Professional Services Agreement with the University of Illinois, Office of Recreation and Parks Resources (“ORPR”) in an amount not to exceed $90,434.00 to perform a recreational demand study for Springfield Supplemental Water Supply Project. Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (“SEIS”) is being prepared for Hunter Lake Project. A SEIS considers new or additional environmental impacts of an activity requiring federal approval. The Utility has requested aquatic outdoor recreation be included in the project's purpose and need for screening of alternatives. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (“USACE”) is requiring the Utility hire a consultant to work as a 3rd party contractor, working under the direction of the USACE, to complete a recreation study to determine if the needs are significant enough for recreation to be added as a screening consideration of alternatives. The aquatic outdoor recreational needs to be considered are specifically for fishing, fishing tournaments, waterfowl bird watching, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and water skiing. The study will examine the current recreation supply and the present and the future needs/demands for aquatic recreation. The Office of Recreation and Park Resources (ORPR) at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, will perform this recreational demand study for the Utility and working under the direction of the USACE. ORPR will employ and utilize the expertise and skills of the faculty, graduate students, and researchers.

A RESOLUTION SUPPORTING THE RETIREMENT OF DALLMAN UNITS 31 AND 32 NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 31, 2020 AND THE RETIREMENT OF DALLMAN UNIT 33 NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 28, 2022 FOR THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
A resolution supporting recommendations made in the Integrated Resource Plan to retire Dallman Units 31, 32 and 33 with generation operations ceasing no later than December 31, 2020 for Dallman Units 31 and 32 and no later than February 28, 2022 for Dallman Unit 33. The City of Springfield engaged in the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) to identify the best resource options for CWLP to provide reliable and reasonably priced electrical power to meet the community’s future energy needs. Evaluating CWLP’s current generation was needed due to customer load decreasing, lower cost options in the market and a number of upcoming significant capital expenditures for environmental compliance and major maintenance needs associated with coal-fired generation. The IRP and CWLP staff analysis concurred in that the Dallman Units 31, 32 and 33 are not economic and can be replaced with lower cost electric resource options into the future. By implementing plant retirements, CWLP will avoid around $100 million in Dallman 31, 32 and 33 expenditures over the next five years by not paying higher operations costs and not stranding investments into capital expenditures that would be necessary for a number of significant maintenance and regulatory compliance projects. Therefore, it is in the best interest of the City of Springfield to support plant retirements of Dallman Units 31, 32 and 33.
