YORKVILLE – A banquet center in Fox Township will be getting its special-use permit after a final vote from the Kendall County Board.
The County Board voted, 8-2, during their Tuesday, Aug. 27, meeting to approve a special-use permit for BrighterDaze, 10978 Crimmin Road in Fox Township. County Board members Matt Kellogg, representing District 2, and Audra Hendrix, representing District 1, voted against the special-use permit and did not give public comment on their votes during the meeting.
The action comes after the county’s committee of the whole approved the proposal during their Aug. 15 meeting. Conditions for the special-use permit include the north and south barn doors having be closed by 7 p.m. for events with music and no longer allowing an additional event per weekend with less than 50 people at the site.
Other concerns related to the proposal had included ones related to Fox Township’s dry regulations, safety concerns of increased traffic on Crimmin Road and the Kendall County Forest Preserve District having trespassing issues with the petitioner in the past.
Fox Township Supervisor Jeff Spang, special-use applicant JoAnn Bright-Theis and Bright-Theis’s lawyer, Boyd Ingemunson, did not give public comment on the matter during the Tuesday, Aug. 27 meeting.
Matt Asselmeier, senior planner for Kendall County Planning, Building and Zoning, said the next steps for the banquet center include the business getting a certificate of occupancy and to dedicate land right of way for Crimmin Road within 90 days. He said the county will be monitoring ordinance compliance from there.
