Summary: LTF Real Estate Company is the contract purchaser of the 10.7 acre parcel on the northeast corner of Route 12 and Old Rand Road. The applicant is proposing to redevelop the former Hackney’s property into a Life Time Fitness high-end luxury athletic and recreation club.
Plans include a three-story 125,000 square foot facility with an approximately 50,000 square foot outdoor pool deck, with an approximately 600 space parking area. The proposed building is similar in bulk and height to the Life Time facility in Vernon Hills.

The property at 880 North Rand Road is currently zoned within the B-1 local and community business district and the R-4 single-family residential district. A Zoning Map Amendment from R-4 to B-1 will be required to allow for the proposed redevelopment.
The developer and staff seek to understand the Village Board’s preferences towards the proposed land use, site configuration, building size and design in order to address potential issues moving forward.

B.Discussion On Video Gaming Café Establishments And A Proposed Ordinance Clarifying The Issuance Of Class A / A-1 And Class V Liquor Licenses To Certain License Classes For Business Establishments When Primary Business Model And Source Of Revenue Is Not Video Gaming Terminals (Assign Ord. #2017-8-214) (Mayor Poynton)
Summary: Video gaming gambling terminals were approved by Ordinance in Lake Zurich on April 7, 2014 with the intension of providing local restaurants an economic development tool that many other nearby municipalities already had at the time. Video gaming terminals have indeed provided several local restaurants with an income boost through the shared video gaming tax and attracted additional customers to their establishments who otherwise may have been visiting other towns for entertainment.
If approved, the proposed Ordinance will clarify an existing provision in the Village Code by specifying that Village Class A or A-1 or V liquor licenses are not intended for future video gaming café establishments. These regulations will not prohibit video gaming terminals in full-service restaurants, breweries, fraternal or veteran’s establishments and will not impact any video gaming café’s that have already been approved by the Village Board.
Recommended Action: The Village Board has three possible options at this point:
● Option #1: Discuss the pros and cons of video gaming café establishments and postpone voting on the proposed Ordinance until a future Village Board meeting.
● Option #2: Approve the proposed Ordinance, thus preventing future video gaming café establishments from obtaining Village liquor licenses.
● Option #3: Vote against the proposed Ordinance, thus allowing future video gaming café establishments to continue to be eligible for Village liquor licenses.
