Village Passes Ordinance Authorizing Settlement Agreement Reached in Aquisition of Janes Plaza Shopping Center

December 16, 2013 – The Village of Woodridge Board passed an ordinance on December 12th authorizing the approval of a settlement agreement for the acquisition of the Janes Plaza Shopping Center located at the northeast corner of Janes Avenue and 83rd Street.

This recent action allows the Woodridge Park District to proceed with the next planning phase that will entail architectural design and engineering, pursue zoning & building permit approval, finalize financing and let the project out for public bid. “We are extremely pleased that the Village of Woodridge through their efforts was able to settle on the purchase price of the property and the Park District is very excited to enter into the next planning phase for the proposed ARC,” said Park Board President Fred Hohnke.

The Park Board authorized staff to begin contract negotiations with both Williams Architects to provide basic architectural & engineering services and with Corporate Construction Services to provide construction management services. Contract agreements will be presented for Park Board consideration at a future Board meeting. The District anticipates it will take approximately twelve months to complete the architectural planning phase that will include additional public feedback opportunities regarding the proposed architectural design of the ARC.
