The City of Elmhurst will be hosting two Open House events on March 9 and March 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at City Hall to provide information regarding proposed downtown zoning changes.
“The proposed zoning changes are consistent with the recently adopted Downtown Plan,” stated Eileen Franz, Assistant Planning & Zoning Administrator, “The public is invited to the Open House meetings where we will explain the changes and what the rezoning means for the downtown.”
In June of 2016, the City of Elmhurst adopted a new Downtown Plan. The 2016 Downtown Plan presents a vision for the year 2025, providing goals, objectives, and other recommendations of action to be undertaken by the City to maintain Downtown as an attractive and vibrant city center. To realize the vision set forth in the Plan, the Plan identifies and recommends changes to the City’s zoning ordinance and development procedures and processes.
Following the Open House meetings on March 9 and March 13, a Public Hearing will be held for the proposed zoning changes recommended in the 2016 Downtown Plan on Thursday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m.
Detailed information about the proposed zoning changes and a copy of the 2016 Downtown Plan can be found at Elmhurst.org.
