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.

This project requires review and approval of a Special Use Permit for a Planned Unit Development Plan with Zoning Deviations, a 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 meeting took place on Thursday, May 14, 2020, via the virtual meeting platform, Zoom, in accordance with Executive Order No. 5 issued by Governor Pritzker on March 16, 2020, which temporarily suspended certain requirements of the Open Meetings Act ILCS 120. To review the meeting agenda, materials, and approved meeting minutes, please visit the Village’s Agendas & Minutes page.
Following the Pre-Application Meeting, the developer has elected to proceed with a formal proposal for the property and submitted full plans and documentation to the Village, most of which are available below for ease of viewing and clarity. The entire submittal package is on file in the Community Development Department at the Glen Ellyn Civic Center, 535 Duane Street. When the plans are ready for consideration by the Plan Commission, a public hearing will be held. The plans and a staff report will then be posted on the Village’s website on the Agendas and Minutes page for public viewing. The date of this hearing is yet to be determined and 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.
