A preliminary hearing was held to consider a request for an exploratory proposal and preliminary plan approval for a planned development having I-1 Limited Industrial Zoning for a proposed business park. The parcel consists of 109 acres and is bounded by Church Road on the north, Dixie Highway and Catalpa Street to the east, Miller Street to the south, and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks to the west.  The property is currently zoned R-1 PUD for a development which was approved in 2007 but never occurred and the property has since changed hands several times.  It is currently being farmed.  The Village placed the west portion of this property in its land use plan as industrial with the east portion being multi-family for senior housing.  The Village also placed this property into its TIF District in 2019 and into an enterprise zone in 2017.   The petitioner, Art Van Baren, wishes to develop and sell 47 industrial lots totaling 61 acres with the remaining 48 acres being water retention and open space.  More information on this proposal is available below.
