Our Ward office has received a proposal to repurpose the unused building at 1616 W Glenlake as a low-impact medical facility with onsite parking. This would be a by-right use, and does not require a zoning change; however, as part of the redesign, the site owners have proposed changing traffic flow from one-way to two-way on Glenlake from Clark to the first alley west of Clark, which would require legislative action.
The Dept. of Transportation has already been provided with a detailed traffic study, and we do not anticipate any objections or difficulties from an engineering standpoint. As part of our commitment to transparency and open government, we have requested a public meeting to be held with the property owner and traffic engineer.
The public meeting will be held at the Ward office on Mon. 11/4/19, 6:00pm.
