A preliminary design review of changes proposed to the Arlington 425 project will be discussed at the Design Commission meeting on Tuesday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. In addition, the Conceptual Plan Review Committee of the Plan Commission will hold a meeting on Wednesday, December 12 at 6:30 p.m. These meetings allow for the two Commissions to  provide preliminary feedback on the proposal.

Both meetings are open to the public and will be held in the Community Room, located on the third floor of Village Hall. Information on these meetings can be found on the Agendas & Minutes page the Friday afternoon prior to the meeting date. New renderings submitted include  the overall rendering of the project,  rendering 1 of the Campbell building, rendering 2 of the Campbell building, and a rendering of the Chestnut building.

This project went before the Village Board on October 1 for an Early Review. The developer, CCH, LLC, is proposing plans to redevelop the northern three-quarters of the only vacant block of land in the Downtown on Campbell Street between Highland Avenue and Chestnut Avenue. The block has been vacant for over 20 years. The developer also held a community meeting in September. Renderings and informational materials from the Early Review meeting and neighborhood meetings can be found on the Arlington 425 project page.

As part of the public hearing process for this project, the proposal must be reviewed by the Design Commission, Conceptual Plan Review Committee, the Plan Commission at a Public Hearing and the Housing Commission. The proposed project also requires the completion of several studies including a detailed traffic and parking study that will be vetted during the review process.

After consideration by these Village Commissions, Arlington 425 would be presented again to the Village Board for review and final action. Updates on this project will found under “Trending” news articles found on the Village’s website, on the Arlington 425 project page and on the Village’s Facebook and Twitter platforms.
