TRAFFIC  CONGESTION

The proposed plan will add two access drives, increasing potential conflicts in areas that are already congested.  The commercial plan will increase congestion and delays at the Plaza Del Prado access drive on Pfingsten.  A residential development could eliminate new access drives on Willow and Pfingsten.

REZONING REQUEST

The burden is on the applicant to show the proposed plan will not harm the general welfare of our community but the increased traffic congestion makes it less safe.  Standards are used to determine whether the property should be rezoned from Residential to Commercial.  The applicant does not meet the standards.

SITE PLAN

The Village of Glenview evaluates site plans by specific criteria.  The proposed site plan does not meet the criteria because the setbacks are not harmonious with adjacent development, it is too intense, with too much building space, causing undue congestion.  The playground would be safer within the site, not close to the Pfingsten access drive.

APPELLATE COURT RULING

Residents questioned the Village's interpretation of Ordinance 2856 and asked the Court to weigh in. The Appellate Court states, "We thus reject the Village's interpretation of Ordinance 2856, as we find it to be an unreasonable, implausible alternative construction."
