 4        Section 5.  The Illinois Municipal  Code  is  amended  by

 6        (65 ILCS 5/11-13-1.1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-13-1.1)
 7        Sec.  11-13-1.1. Special uses.  The corporate authorities
 8    of any municipality may in its ordinances  passed  under  the
 9    authority  of this Division 13 provide for the classification
10    of special uses. Such uses may include but are not limited to
11    public  and  quasi-public  uses  affected  with  the   public
12    interest,  uses  which  may have a unique, special or unusual
13    impact upon the use or enjoyment of neighboring property, and
14    planned developments. A use may be a permitted use in one  or
15    more zoning districts, and a special use in one or more other
16    zoning districts. A special use shall be permitted only after
17    a   public   hearing  before  some  commission  or  committee
18    designated by the corporate authorities,  with  prior  notice
19    thereof  given  in  the manner as provided in Section 11-13-6
20    and 11-13-7. A special  use  shall  be  permitted  only  upon
21    evidence  that  such use meets standards established for such
22    classification  in  the  ordinances,  and  the  granting   of
23    permission  therefor  may be subject to conditions reasonably
24    necessary to meet such standards. In addition,  any  proposed
25    special  use  which  fails  to  receive  the  approval of the
26    commission  or  committee   designated   by   the   corporate
27    authorities  to hold the public hearing shall not be approved
28    by the corporate authorities except by a  favorable  majority
29    vote  of  all  aldermen,  commissioners  or  trustees  of the
30    municipality then  holding  office;  however,  the  corporate
31    authorities may by ordinance increase the vote requirement to
                            -2-                LRB9211984BDsb
 1    two-thirds  of all aldermen, commissioners or trustees of the
 2    municipality then holding office.
