What type of public outreach was conducted surrounding this project?

In May 2018, the Glen Ellyn Plan Commission conducted a pre-application meeting. 2 This public meeting was open to residents and businesses to attend. Even though preapplication meetings are not required to be noticed to the public, property owners within 350 feet of the site were notified of the meeting. Notifications of the pre-application meeting were also included in the Village’s e-newsletter, social media channels, website and downtown electronic sign. The Village also collaborated with the Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Alliance to share the notice with their members. The meeting offered an opportunity to provide feedback prior to formal submittals to the Village. 

Information on the public hearing (originally scheduled for December 6, 2018 and rescheduled for Monday, January 7, 2019) was publicized in a number of avenues including the public notice printed in the Daily Herald newspaper, press releases to the media, as well as again through the Village’s social media channels, e-newsletter, website and downtown electronic sign. The Village mailed notice to taxpayers of record within 350 feet of the property and placed a Public Hearing sign on the property. In addition, the Village worked closely with the Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Alliance to communicate all meetings and information to the business community. 

Similar outreach methods were employed before the Village Board meeting to consider the Preliminary Planned Unit Development, the Plan Commission meeting to consider the Final Planned Unit Development, and the Village Board meeting to consider the Final Planned Unit Development.
