    They did publicly identify the library, street and commuter lots as parking alternatives for this building.

    They will need it.

    Indoor spaces will incur an additional and optional monthly rental fee and will be assigned accordingly. This will wreak havoc on the parking assumptions because no indoor space may be utilized when empty.

    Frankly, I don't see how you can count a rented and assigned spot in the same way as an open spot. And why count the unrented inventory of indoor spaces at all?

    One Plan Commisioner, no doubt applying himself fully to his responsibilities, had a ready answer, "...there are problems, but these things have a way of working out."

    Those don't sound like alternatives, they sound like excuses for not coming up with a decent enough plan for their tenants.

    I should clarify that 'they' meant the group; developer, developer's consultants, City, City's consultants and Plan Commission. They were all on the same team that night, all promoted the project and all appeared (to the audience) to work to the same common goal.


    Also note that the City will be removing a strip of current street parking and giving them a parkway to pave and use for garbage hauling to make up for their lack of land to support their project.

    Paving parkways for garbage hauling. Is that really a compatible use anywhere in Glen Ellyn?

    Note: We live in the Village of Glen Ellyn, not the City of Glen Ellyn.

    It looks like the Village Board approved this development on Monday night. So, will we see "Save Duane/Prospect" signs coming? With the apparent work that is beginning at the Giesche site, it's a great time to be a lawyer around GE!!

    FYI - The 5 corners case had two lawyers one at the beginning then the lawyer who took over the case and won it - is a resident who is an attorney ( he doesn't specialize in zoning or development but he took on the case because after seeing all the evidence, due process issues, traffic studies that didn't include Elm and Main, he became passionate about it- Trust me, It's not the same attorney.
