On April 29, Walmart submitted its zoning and subdivision relief application for the property at 1000 Skokie Boulevard, according to a recent Northbrook village memo. Over the next three weeks, Village staff will be reviewing the application for its completeness and compliance with Village regulations.
Once staff has finished its review, staff will determine if the application is ready for a public hearing before the Plan Commission. The earliest possible date for a Public Hearing would be June 18, 2013.
Public Hearing notices will be posted on line at www.northbrook.il.us and reminders sent via Northbrook Notify.
Patch conducted a reader poll in December on the potential success of a Walmart Store on Skokie Boulevard in Northbrook, and there was no shortage of opinion as well as a strong feeling the retail giant would find a winner on the North Shore.
Nearly 70 percent of the respondents thought the business would flourish here. Of the 59 people who responded, 41 think the location would be a good bet for Walmart while 18 think the company will fail.
