A developer wants to build a nearly 200,000 square foot warehouse with 21 docks in the rear of the building on the corner of North Ave. and Kuhn Rd. The main entrance to this warehouse will be on Kuhn Road, ALL truck traffic will enter and leave the facility on Kuhn Road down McNees Drive (by the water plant).

It is a speculative project so we do not know what type of business this will be nor do we know how much truck traffic will be on Kuhn Road. The Village promises to have signage telling all trucks to enter and exit from the south on Kuhn Road, but will that stop all trucks from going North? Likely not.
Village officials say the truck traffic will "most likely" go south and that it's "difficult to pinpoint" how many trucks and how much traffic there will be and this project is all "speculative" but they will fill the space with someone.
We should not be totally against building on North Ave., but ALL trucks should ENTER and EXIT any facility on North Ave., not on our residential Kuhn Road. These docks will be 700 feet away form houses. The docks should be on the east side of the building with a drive to access them. There is no other warehouse like this in Carol Stream where such a high volume of trucks could come down a mainly residential thoroughfare.
Please sign this petition and I encourage you to add comments in the "Comment Box" and an email will automatically be sent to the Village Board on your behalf.
It would be even better if you can attend the Village Board meeting at the Kuhn Road Fire Station on Monday, August 21st and speak out against this facility before the board meeting starts. Arrive at the Fire Station by 7:15pm to sign in because if you don't sign in before 7:30pm, they will not let you speak in front of them.
Please sign this petition now or send an email to the Carol Stream Village Board ASAP and tell them you are against any truck traffic on Kuhn Road and that this could be a disaster for the residential section of Carol Stream affecting 100's or residents that drive on Kuhn Road and use the parks and paths for recreation. Email the Board and Mayor right now at: VillageBoardefirstname.lastname@example.org
Jay Stream had intended commercial developments like this be separate from residential areas. Let's hope our current Village leadership agrees with that premise and if they allow this development to be built, the truck traffic MUST enter and exit ON NORTH AVENUE!
