Earlier this week, the Village attorneys filed a Motion to Dismiss the lawsuit filed by Haymarket DuPage LLC in December. In the lawsuit, Haymarket argues that it should have been originally allowed to seek a special use permit to operate as a health care facility in Itasca.
Today, the Village attorneys appeared in DuPage County Court for presentation of the Village’s motion. A briefing schedule for the motion and hearing date was set by the Court. The Motion to Dismiss is scheduled to be heard by the Honorable Judge Bonnie M. Wheaton on March 16, 2020 at 9:30 a.m.
The Village remains committed to keeping residents updated throughout this process.January 22, 2020 - Update from Mayor Pruyn
Mr. Larry Swets recently reached out to inform me that he has expressed interest in the Holiday-Inn Itasca property. Subsequently, Plan Commissioner Eric Swets tendered a letter to the Plan Commission Chair recusing himself from the Haymarket proposal currently before the Plan Commission.
As a result, the Plan Commission will continue to hear the Haymarket case, however, Commissioner Swets will no longer participate in the hearings or vote on a recommendation in this case.
We will keep you posted as future hearing dates are scheduled.
As a result, no evidence or testimony may be taken at the Public Hearing originally scheduled for January 22, 2020. To comply with legal notice requirements, the Plan Commission will briefly meet on January 22, at 7 p.m. at Village Hall, 550 Irving Park Road for the sole purpose of continuing the public hearing to a future date.
Future Plan Commission Hearings regarding Haymarket’s Zoning Petition will be posted and publicized online in accordance with the Illinois Open Meetings Act.
