The property is currently developed with a one-story, +/- 13,500 square-foot commercial building and 42 parking stalls, which was formerly owned and occupied by the McChesney & Miller grocery store. One of the longest-running businesses in DuPage County, the business opened in 1862 and relocated to the subject property in 1975. In the fall of 2014, the business closed and the property is now vacant.

Approval Process

This project requires review and approval of a Special Use Permit for a Planned Unit Development Plan with deviations, Special Use Permit for Multi-Family Dwelling Units, and Exterior Appearance approval.  

Prior to filing formal applications for the above, a Pre-Application Meeting with the Plan Commission is required as part of the Planned Unit Development review process. This is scheduled for the Thursday, May 14, 2020, Plan Commission meeting. The meeting agenda and materials are available on the Village’s Agendas & Minutes page

In light of Executive Order No. 5 issued by Governor Pritzker on March 16, 2020, which temporarily suspends certain requirements of the Open Meetings Act ILCS 120, the May 14 Plan Commission Meeting will be held virtually. Public comment may be submitted through a form on the Village’s website. All comments received prior to 5 p.m. on the day of the Plan Commission meeting will be read into the record during the meeting. All comments received after that time will be shared with the Plan Commission, Village Board and applicants for their information. To observe or listen in to the meeting proceedings, please view the instructions on joining the Zoom Meeting HERE.  

Following the Pre-Application Meeting, the developer may choose to proceed with a formal proposal for the property and begin to prepare full plans and documentation for submittal to the Village.  If plans are filed requesting approval of the project, those plans will be posted on the Village’s Development Portal and this webpage. When those plans are ready for consideration by the Plan Commission, a public hearing will be held. The date of this hearing is yet to be determined but the public hearing will be announced on the Village’s social media pages, Village eNewsletter, through the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce and Alliance of Downtown Glen Ellyn, and a press release will be shared with local newspapers   At the end of the Plan Commission public hearing, the Plan Commission will make a recommendation to approve, approve with conditions, or deny the proposal to the Village Board of Trustees. The Village Board will make the final decision on the project.
