Riverside Plaza Apartment Changes Coming In Two Weeks
The Algonquin Village Board approved changing Riverside Plaza to apartments on a 5-2 vote last month but most of the trustees said they didn't want any more of them than the 54 originally planned as condominiums. Breugelmans estimated it would take 69 to satisfy the bankers he's banking on for the money to finish the long-delayed project.
The sidewalk slowed to make sure parts of it complied with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act regulations, according to Algonquin Public Works Director Bob Mitchard. Breugelmans said negotiations with Village staff on what's necessary for the apartment conversion are going well. However, they'll all have to be approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and then by the Village Board. About how he'll fare at those levels Breugelmans smiled and said, "we'll see."
The apartment changes are scheduled to come before the P&Z commissioners in about two weeks.
