Elmhurst City Council members will meet as a committee of the whole at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, at City Hall.
The purpose of the meeting is to continue to review criteria that will go into a request for proposals for the Hahn Street project. The city presented a first draft for the RFP Nov. 26.
The site, bordered by North Avenue, York Road, Addison and Third streets, is part of the new North York Road tax increment financing district. The RFP will ask developers to share their vision of a project with first-floor retail and residences on the upper floors, although the city is open to other creative ideas. Last year, consultants recommended apartments for the site, but not all aldermen were on board with that idea.
Following the Committee of the Whole meeting, at about 7 p.m., aldermen will break into their four committees to discuss various other issues.
Development, Planning and Zoning Committee will hear an update on the "Got It in Elmhurst" campaign.
Finance, Council Affairs and Administrative Services will review revenue and audit services, as well as the community grant program.
Public Affairs and Safety will entertain requests for the annual 4 on the 4th run and the Elmhurst Park District Battle of the Bands. Also on the agenda is a discussion of the Starcom radio purchase.
Public Works and Buildings will review the 2013 capital expenditure budget. Details about each project are available on the city’s website. The committee also will discuss administrative fees for refuse and recycling and a proposal for a computerized maintenance and monitoring system.
Public comment is welcome at all committee meetings. City Hall is located at 209 N. York St.
