Debate continues over Elburn Station
ELBURN – A vigorous, in-depth discussion about the plans for the Elburn Station project began Monday, when village leaders aimed to compile a list of concerns while they seek to find a consensus that would move the development forward.
The most significant issue is the amount of multiunit rental properties, and officials appeared to favor spelling out limits that would address how many such rental units could be built. Also, there was discussion about not allowing a new phase of building to occur until the previous one was 95 percent complete. Discussion is expected to continue at next week’s Committee of the Whole meeting.
It’s the first step in the process since October, when instead of voting on the plan, the board voted, 4-3, to table the discussion of the topic. Board member Bill Grabarek said there were too many concerns over the density of the proposed development by ShoDeen, which would bring 2,200 homes – including more than 1,300 apartments and condominiums – to the village.
