Yesterday, I received this letter from Dr. Lustig confirming Haymarket’s purchase of the Holiday Inn Itasca. In my experience, it is highly unusual for a property to be purchased prior to receiving the necessary zoning approval. This is why, I reached out to Haymarket on Monday asking them to clarify their intentions for their purchase of the Holiday Inn.The purchase of the property in no way alters the current zoning.

While Haymarket once again Haymarket failed to proactively notify the Village of its intentions, Dr. Lustig’s response to my inquiry confirms this possibility.
We will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
