GLEN ELLYN PUBLIC HEARING | Topic: Civic Center Parking Garage and Pedestrian Access


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.

The Plan Commission will conduct a public hearing on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 7 p.m. in the Galligan Board Room at the Civic Center, 535 Duane Street. The Commission will review and make a recommendation to approve, approve with conditions, or deny the requests. Following the Plan Commission's review, the project is scheduled for Village Board consideration on Monday, January 13, 2020.
