Controversial Butterfield gas station moves forward with zoning board recommendation
Despite concerns from residents and the Butterfield Park District, a proposed gas station is one step closer to being developed at the northeast corner of Butterfield Road and Route 53 near Glen Ellyn.
The DuPage County Zoning Board of Appeals voted 4-2 to make a recommendation to the DuPage County Board to approve a permit for the development, with the addition of conditions pertaining to the establishment of a buffer between the gas station and park district and other concerns.
"It's hard when you have the whole community here and they're against it – and a lot of times we defer to them – but you need a legal basis to deny, and I don't think we have it," Trustee Barry Ketter said.
