Below is a map of the location being considered for development.
Based on feedback from Village Staff, the developer has submitted revised plans. These revised plans will now undergo another review by Village staff, at which time Staff will evaluate the extent to which M/I Homes has addressed the initial Staff comments and any new information that has been provided by M/I Homes.
Due to the amount of public interest that has been expressed about this project, the village has made available online plans showing the roadway layout, location of lots and uses, building elevations, and floor plans. The posting of these documents is informational and should not, in any way, be considered an expression of support or endorsement for what is shown.
The summary below highlights some of the changes from the last submittal:
Further information will be posted, as it becomes available. The plans on the website are preliminary and represent what M/I Homes has proposed to build. Various village departments, including planning, landscaping, engineering, traffic, fire, and public works are evaluating the plans. A formal approval process with ample opportunity for public comment will be undertaken in the near future. An outline of the review process, which typically takes several months for a project of this size, is provided below.
Below is a summary of the review process for this project. The review is expected to take several months. The exact timeframe will depend upon required revisions and turnaround time for the developer to resubmit revised plans.
Comprehensive Plan Designation
The Village’s Comprehensive Plan is used as the official policy guide for land use, development and community improvement in Schaumburg. The Comprehensive Plan states that this property is best positioned for single family residential development. The Comprehensive Plan also states that it is essential to provide options that support “aging in place”, which could include small-lot single family homes and multi-family housing. During the development of the Comprehensive Plan, the village received public comments that seniors desired more housing options to age in place in the community. Also included in the plan is construction of a cross-town trail located on the gas pipeline property that runs east-west through the community. A portion of this trail would be located to the adjacent north of the subject property.
