With the much beleaguered redevelopment of 135-149 North Addison entering the final architectural design phase, Mayor Steven Morley invites all Elmhurst residents and other stakeholders to review proposed designs for the project.
On May 19, the Elmhurst City Council approved an ordinance granting a conditional use permit and assorted variations for a mixed-use development, which includes 16,000 square feet of retail space and a 690-space public parking facility.
Two community open houses are scheduled for June 23 and June 30 in the Council Chambers on the second floor of Elmhurst City Hall, at 209 N. York St., between 6 and 8 p.m.
Both open houses will include a short presentation by architect Louis Vandeloecht. Attendees will have a chance to express their preferences and opinions on each proposal, according to the city's website.
Morley called community input an important part of the planning process as the city moves into the design stage of redevelopment project.
The city expects to break ground in the fall. The entire project is expected to be completed by October 2015, Suburban Life reported.
