ELBURN – A vote on the long-discussed plans for the Elburn Station development is possible on Monday night, as a special Village Board meeting has been planned for 7 p.m. at Village Hall, 301 E. North St. The meeting will take place before the regularly scheduled Committee of the Whole meeting.

Village President Dave Anderson has said he would plan for such a meeting, as the board and officials from developer ShoDeen have worked to hammer out details for the project, which would bring 2,200 new homes into the village over 20 years in the area near the Metra station.

Discussions have centered around limiting the number of rental units, sharing the cost of a planned pedestrian bridge and establishing that ShoDeen could not start work on a new phase of the project until the previous one was essentially complete.

At the Committee of the Whole meeting, board members are set to review building permit fees, impact fees and water and sewer connection fees, as well as discuss the possibility of lifting the village’s ban on video gaming.
