    AN ACT to amend  the  Counties  Code  by  adding  Section

    Be  it  enacted  by  the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:

    Section 5. The Counties Code is amended by adding Section
5-12009.5 as follows:

    (55 ILCS 5/5-12009.5 new)
    Sec. 5-12009.5. Special  use  authorization.  The  county
board  may  provide  for  the classification of special uses.
"Special uses" may include but are not limited to public  and
quasi-public  uses  affecting  the public interest, uses that
may have unique, special, or unusual impact upon the  use  or
enjoyment  of neighboring property, and planned developments.
A use may be a permitted use in one or more zoning  districts
and a special use in one or more other zoning districts.
    A  special  use  may  be  permitted  only  after a public
hearing before the county zoning commission with prior notice
given as provided in Section  5-12009  of  this  Division.  A
special  use  shall  be permitted only upon evidence that the
use meets standards established for  the  classifications  in
the  ordinances, and the granting of permission therefore may
be subject to conditions reasonably  necessary  to  meet  the
    Those  municipalities  whose  boundaries are within 1 1/2
miles of any part of the area proposed to be classified as  a
special  use  shall be given notice of the hearing. The owner
or owners of land immediately touching, or immediately across
a street, alley, or public right-of-way from, at least 20% of
the perimeter of the land to be affected by the  special  use
shall  have  standing  to object to the granting of a special
use permit. A majority vote of the county board  is  required
to  grant  a  special  use  permit,  unless  the county board
provides by ordinance that a two-thirds vote is required.
