UPDATE: February 8, 2013, 5:30 p.m. The petition for a sheltered care facility at 63rd Street and Lyman Avenue has been withdrawn by the petitioner. No further action will take place regarding this petition.
On Monday, January 28, 2013, the Plan Commission met to consider a petition for the construction of a Sheltered (Senior) Care Facility on three parcels near 63rd Street and Lyman Avenue. This Public Hearing was well attended and involved nearly five hours of discussion among neighborhood residents, the petitioner, and Plan Commissioners.
During the hearing, a resident provided testimony regarding a restrictive covenant which may affect the petitioner's proposal. In response to this information, the Village sent the attached letter to the petitioner. The hearing remains open and has been continued to Monday, February 25, 2013.
Prior to Monday's hearing, the Village requested the developer to conduct an informational meeting for neighborhood residents to allow ample time for them to become familiar with the scope of the proposal in an informal setting. Although the pre-hearing informational session was not legally required, it provided a great opportunity for neighbors to prepare in advance of the actual hearing.
The Village would like to thank all the neighbors in this area for their timely and active participation in this process. Updates will be provided as further details become available.
