[ARCHIVED] Plan Commission Recommends Approval of Proposed Parking Garage and Pedestrian Access to Main Street

Civic Center Garage

On December 12, the Village's Plan Commission held a public hearing to review the proposal for the four-story Civic Center public parking garage and pedestrian access to Main Street. 

The Plan Commission heard presentations, public comment and followed with a 5-1 vote to recommend approval of this project to the Village Board. 

The Village Board is expected to give consideration to the project at the Monday, January 13, 7 p.m. Village Board meeting at the Civic Center, 535 Duane Street. 

About the Project 

M.A. Mortenson Company, on behalf of the Village of Glen Ellyn, is proposing a four-story public parking garage and other associated public improvements for the properties located at 535 Duane Street and 423 N. Main Street, more commonly known as the Glen Ellyn Civic Center and the Shonkwiler Building, respectively. Part of this proposal includes the demolition of the Shonkwiler building and the residential building to its rear. In the place of this building, a public space to serve as a connection point from Main Street to the public parking garage is proposed.

The proposed public parking garage will contain 277 parking stalls, and an additional 10 parking stalls to the west of the driveway off of Duane Street. A total net gain of 212 additional parking stalls will serve commuters, businesses, residents, visitors and Civic Center employees.
