The Project proposes the construction of 911 residential units, including at least 150 multi-family residential units; 40,000 square feet of neighborhood commercial/mixed-use development; 20 + acres of open space that include an 8-acre public park, smaller public green spaces, and conserved open space; and a 2.9-mile multi-use pathway network.
The project includes a General Plan Amendment, Zone Change, Specific Plan, Oak Tree Removal Permit, multiple Vesting Tentative Tract Maps, a Development Agreement and the formation of a Community Facilities District for the construction of 911 residential units including at least 150 multi-family residential units; approximately 5.6 acres of commercial/mixed-use development; an approximately 8-acre public park; and approximately 20 acres of open space. Airport Road would be extended from Meadowlark Road to connect with Creston Road.
(61) Vessels used primarily for commercial fishing. Any vessel as defined in section 15-127 used primarily for purposes of commercial fishing, provided in the tax year of the owner ending immediately prior to any assessment date with respect to which application is submitted for the exemption provided in this subdivision not less than fifty per cent of the adjusted gross income of such owner, as determined for purposes of the federal income tax, is derived from commercial fishing subject to proof satisfactory to the assessor in the town in which such application is submitted; (68) Livestock totally exempt except that exemption for horses and ponies limited to one thousand dollars in value unless used in farming. Any livestock owned and kept in this state, except that any horse or pony shall be exempt from local property tax up to the assessed value of one thousand dollars, with such exempt value applicable in the case of each such horse or pony, provided any horse or pony used in farming, in the manner required in section 12-91, shall be totally exempt from local property tax as provided in said section 12-91;
At 457 acres, Busse Reservoir is one of the largest fishing and boating waters in Cook County. The chain of several connected pools was created in 1978 when natural waterways were dammed and the area was dug out.
Pasture maintenance costs are assumed to be relatively low at $20 per acre and would include only basic cash costs of pasture clipping (fuel, maintenance, repairs), and a limited amount of reseeding, fertilizer, and fencing repairs. Producers who consistently apply larger amounts of fertilizer to pasture ground would see much higher pasture maintenance costs. The pasture stocking rate is assumed to be 2.0 acres per cow, but producers should carefully consider the stocking rate for their operation, as this will vary greatly. Stocking rate impacts the number of grazing days and winter feeding days for the operation (i.e. high stocking rates will mean more hay feeding days), which has large implications for costs on a per cow basis.
Since these costs vary so much from one operation to the next, it may be helpful to pick a specific sized farm and provide estimates for these costs: a 40-cow operation that is producing its own hay and has all farming operations on its own land (80 acres of pasture and 30 acres of hay).
If we have 2.0 acres of pasture and .75 acres of hayground per cow, and value that at a land rent of $36/acre, that would be $100/cow/year in land rent. Assume also that we have determined we have $100/cow/year in labor, which would amount to $4000 total per year for the entire herd. 2b1af7f3a8
