Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 2-90. Establishment of planning boundaries.
    (a) The Department shall establish and provide public notice of the approximate location of the inaugural airport boundary and the ultimate airport boundary to inform the public and prevent costly and conflicting development of the land involved. The Department shall hold a public hearing when it desires to formally provide public notice of the approximate locations of the inaugural airport boundary and the ultimate airport boundary. The hearing shall be held in Will County and notice of the hearing shall be published in a newspaper or newspapers of general circulation in Will County. Any interested person or his representative shall be heard. The Department shall evaluate the testimony given at the hearing. The Department shall make a survey and prepare maps showing the location of the inaugural airport boundary and the ultimate airport boundary. The maps shall show the property lines and owners of record of all land within the inaugural airport boundary and the ultimate airport boundary and all other pertinent information. Approval of the maps with any changes resulting from the hearing shall be indicated in the record of the hearing and a notice of the approval and a copy of the maps shall be filed in the office of the recorder for Will County. Public notice of the approval and filing shall be given in newspapers of general circulation in Will County and shall be served by registered mail within 60 days thereafter on all owners of record of the land needed for future additions.
    (b) The Department may approve changes in the maps of the inaugural airport boundary and the ultimate airport boundary from time to time. The changes shall be filed and notice given in the manner provided for the original maps. After the maps are filed and notice thereof given to the owners of record of the land needed for future additions, no one shall incur development costs or place improvements in, upon, or under the land involved, nor rebuild, alter, or add to any existing structure without first giving 60 days' notice by registered mail to the Department. This prohibition shall not apply to any normal or emergency repairs to existing structures. The Department has 45 days after receipt of that notice to inform the owner of the Department's intention to acquire the land involved. After informing the owner, the Department shall have 120 days to acquire the land by purchase or to initiate action to acquire the land through the exercise of the right of eminent domain. When the land is acquired by the State no compensation shall be allowed for any construction, alteration, or addition in violation of this Section unless the Department has failed to acquire the land by purchase or has abandoned an eminent domain proceeding initiated under the provisions of this paragraph. Any land needed for modifications to the inaugural airport boundary or the ultimate airport boundary may be acquired at any time by the State. The time of determination of the value of the property to be taken under this Section for additions to the South Suburban Airport shall be the date of the actual taking, if the property is acquired by purchase, or the date of the filing of a complaint for condemnation or as established by Section 10-5-60 of the Eminent Domain Act, if the property is acquired through the exercise of the right of eminent domain, rather than the date when the maps of the inaugural airport boundary or the ultimate airport boundary were filed of record.

The powers given to the Department under this Section include the power to acquire, by condemnation or otherwise, any property used for cemetery purposes within or outside of inaugural airport boundary, and to require that the cemetery be removed to a different location. The powers given to the Department under this Section include the power to condemn or otherwise acquire, and to convey, substitute property when the Department reasonably determines that monetary compensation will not be sufficient or practical just compensation for property acquired by the Department in connection with the South Suburban Airport. The acquisition of substitute property is declared to be for public use. The powers given by this Section to the Department to condemn property include the power of condemnation by quick-take under Article 20 of the Eminent Domain Act. Property acquired under this Section includes property that the Department reasonably determines will be necessary for future use, regardless of whether final regulatory or funding decisions have been made; provided, however, that quick-take of such property is subject to Section 25-5-45 of the Eminent Domain Act.
    (b) With respect to any land acquired or sought to be acquired by the Department by condemnation for the South Suburban Airport pursuant to the powers granted by Section 72 or 74 of the Aeronautics Act, the phrase "within the limitation of available appropriations" shall be deemed to require that the Department have, on the date of filing the condemnation complaint, unexpended appropriations equal to the amount of the Department's most recent offer to purchase the property.
    (c) No property owned by the Department may be subject to taking by condemnation or otherwise by any unit of local government, any other airport authority, or by any agency, instrumentality, or political subdivision of the State.
