The owner and developer of the former Hart property at 2660 Pfingsten Rd. (the SW corner of Willow and Pfingsten) is before the Plan Commission seeking to rezone the 8.55 acre parcel from R-1 residential to a combination of B-1 business and R-4 residential.
We have spent considerable time listening to the residents, understand their concerns, and support their right to oppose the change in zoning as allowed by the process. The GLENVIEW NEXT candidates (Paul Brancky, Sheri Latash, and Cathy Wilson) have attended all the Plan Commission hearings related to the second attempt at rezoning.
On February 23, GW Properties presented its rationale to the Plan Commission for why the Village of Glenview should rezone this plot of land based upon eight standards of review. The developer seeks to establish a shopping center featuring a 35,000-square-foot Amazon Fresh store, three other smaller commercial buildings and 294 parking spaces. The burden of proof falls on the developer to persuade the Plan Commission as to why the parcel should be rezoned.
On March 9, the neighborhood opposition group, including Carol Sullivan and a team of residents, presented to the Plan Commission the reasons why they felt the GW Properties plan failed to meet the eight standards of review for rezoning. Click here to learn more.
We are watching this zoning review process closely. We await the recommendation by the Plan Commission and the decision by the Village Board. These two groups will determine whether the developer has met the burden of proof to rezone the property based upon the required eight standards of review.
