Coal City leaders decline library's permit request
Neighbor asks for landscaping to cut down on light
COAL CITY — A motion to approve a conditional use permit for the Coal City Library District failed to gain village officials' support at their meeting Monday night in Coal City.
In a tie vote broken by Mayor Neal Nelson, the board voted against approving the permit for the library, which would allow the library to proceed with plans to renovate space in a home on its property into additional meeting space.
Village administrator Matt Fritz told the trustees that during a March public hearing for the permit, the library agreed to include construction of a five-foot fence along the northern edge of the alley next to the building to prevent nuisance light from the parking lot from entering neighboring homes.
