[Editor's note: village board approval is required to officially qualify these educational institutions as a special use exception. The commission's recommendation Wednesday was sufficient for UTI to continue with its hearing for a special use request.]
Educational facilities such as vocational, trade or technical schools, colleges, and universities are one step closer to being able to apply for special use permits along Lisle's I-88 corridor.
Commissioners recommended a text amendment Wednesday evening which now qualifies these instiutions to apply for a special use request. The amendment will affect properties in the village's office-research corridor, along Warrenville Road.
Universal Technical Institutes, Inc., (UTI) requested the amendment, which now allows the training school to apply for a special use permit at 2611 Corporate West Dr. However, the amendment will allow similar institutions to apply for permits on other properties along this corridor in the future.
The building's current owners, iStar Financial Inc., are looking to to suit the school.
Commissioners also heard from UTI and their design team during a second public hearing to review the proposed project. Stay tuned to Patch for an update.
