The Village of Mt Prospect's RE developer of choice, Nicholas & Assoc., is proposing a planned unit development which will include two, high-rise, apartment buildings (8 (previously 9) & 7 stories tall) containing over 250 units. In addition, the project will include 66, 2 bedroom, Row Homes. The project's site will include the former location of the Parenti & Rafaelli woodworking firm, AS WELL AS, THE METRA PARKING LOT on Maple Street.

This proposed project is too dense and out of character with the neighborhood south of the railroad tracks, which is primarily residential, and currently contains no structure higher than 3 stories tall. Current zoning laws restrict maximum density to 16-30 units per acre, a maximum height of 80 feet, and a ratio of hard to permeable surface for storm water management. This project exceeds all of these existing restrictions.

We feel that this project is being rushed through the approval process with limited notification to the residents affects; as well as, insufficient analysis of the potential impact that this project will have on traffic flow; school attendance; lack of available parking; and quality of Village life in general.

Our goal is to pause the momentum of this project, at least temporarily, until there can be greater input from the residents which may result in potentially scaling back the scope of this project. There is a significant amount of residential development going on within Mt Prospect; as well as, the adjoining communities of Des Plaines and Arlington Heights, with apparent little regard to what impact this will have on the current infrastructure of these communities (i.e. roads, commuter lines, etc.).

We encourage your signature on this petition to make your concerns be acknowledged.
