Residents, officials debate need for proposed Lenox Road changes
GLEN ELLYN – Neighbors of the proposed Chidester-Elm-Lenox-Linden project near Lake Ellyn Park say it is up to the village to prove why it is necessary to widen roadways and add sidewalks in the area, since many of them do not foresee considerable benefits from these changes.
"The benefit of making park traffic flow more easy and faster does not outweigh the long-losing increases and risks to this property, including increased safety issues, loss of green space, damage to trees, increased flooding and expense," resident Carolyn Oesterle said.
The village's Capital Improvements Commission recommended that Lenox Road be widened from 25 to 28 feet in various areas and that sidewalk be added to the east side of Lenox Road between Hawthorne Boulevard and Essex Road and the south side of Linden Street between Main Street and Lenox Road.
