Route 59 Corridor Study Open House

Reported by on 11/29/18

Dear District 204 Community,

I want to make our residents aware of the public Open House that the city of Aurora is holding on Thursday, December 6, 2018 from 4 pm to 7 pm at Calvary Church, 9S200 Route 59. The city recently completed a draft of its Route 59 Corridor Study Comprehensive Plan. The study area includes parcels south of the Metra Station, west of Route 59, north of Montgomery Road, and east of the CN Rail line. The city is seeking feedback on its development initiatives for this area. The Open House will be a time for the city to gather public input and answer questions you may have about the plan.

I am asking you to consider attending this important Open House because the draft plan proposes changes in zoning and land use along Route 59 which have the potential to significantly impact our school district. Specifically, we are concerned about increased student enrollment that could necessitate changing school boundaries and create the need for additional classroom space on the north end of the district. We also have concerns about the financial implications to the district as the city considers potential economic incentives that may be offered to future developers. Although this is a plan from the city of Aurora, these changes have the potential to impact our entire district.

We have been actively monitoring the development of this study with the city for the last several months. The city now has an opportunity for all residents to become informed and provide input. Please consider attending the December 6 Open House to learn more about the Route 59 Corridor Study Comprehensive Plan. A draft for discussion purposes only is posted on the city’s website.

Sincerely,

Karen Sullivan
Superintendent
