Below are brief updates for the project with the most recent developments first. At this time, the Village has not received a formal or official zoning petition for the CNH property.
- August 7, 2023: The Village of Burr Ridge is aware of a potential development proposal by Bridge Industrial for the CNH Industrial property at 6900 Veterans Blvd. This concept includes a Costco retail location, limited-hours gas station, regional headquarters office building, and business park/light industrial space. Read the full news release here (pdf).
- June 16, 2022: The Village of Burr Ridge is made aware that CNH Industrial is relocating out of Burr Ridge and plans to sell its 110-acre lot and facility. The Village of Burr Ridge announces this information through a news release.
- Zoning Petition Definition: A zoning petition is an official or formal application to the Village for a certain type of zoning action. Zoning action can include changing the text of the Zoning Ordinance, changing the zoning district of a property, a special use to permit certain types of uses, a Planned Unit Development (PUD) for a larger cohesive development, or variations to deviate from standards within the Zoning Ordinance.
- Petitioner Information: Zoning petitions can be submitted by the property owner or a representative of the property owner with their consent (i.e. attorney, architect, developer, real estate agent, contractor, engineer, etc.). A person or entity which has a contractual interest in the property may also submit a petition with the consent of the owner.
- Staff Review: When a formal petition for zoning action is received by Village staff, the petition is reviewed to ensure it is complete and contains all the required documents such as engineering plans and studies, landscape plans, architectural plans, traffic studies, and environmental studies. The required documents depend on the nature of the request. The review process involves Village staff and may include other entities, like the Fire District. Village staff may require revisions to the documents and this initial review may take weeks or even months.
- Plan Commission Review:
- When the petition is determined to be complete, it is scheduled for a public hearing with the Plan Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals (referred to as the "Plan Commission"). There is a public notification process where the public hearing date and zoning requests are published in a local newspaper, signs are posted on the property, and letters are sent to the properties within a certain radius of the site, typically 750-800 ft. of the site. Homeowners Associations within this radius are also notified so that they can convey the information to all the residents in their subdivision.
- At the Plan Commission meeting, staff will introduce the petition and the petitioner may also make a presentation. The public is invited to make comments on the petition. A petition may be continued to subsequent meetings if the Plan Commission requests additional information or changes to the plans.
- The Plan Commission is a recommending body comprised of appointed officials. The Plan Commission makes a recommendation for approval or denial to the Village Board of Trustees.
- Board of Trustees Review: The petition is then reviewed by the Board of Trustees in a similar process as detailed above. Changes to the plans may be requested and the public is invited to make comments. The Board of Trustees is the final decision making body, comprised of elected officials. Once the Board makes a decision for approval or denial, that is the last meeting and final determination on the petition.
- Standards for Review and Decision-Making: Within the Zoning Ordinance, each type of zoning action has a specific list of "Standards" that the Plan Commission and the Board of Trustees must use to review the request. These Standards are also referred to as Findings of Fact. The Plan Commission and Board of Trustees must find that each Standard is met to approve the zoning action. For example, a special use cannot be approved if adequate utilities are not being provided.
