LITH Board To OK New Gas, Convenience, Carwash Complex
Grove Mart on Algonquin Road across from Wentworth Drive will feature 16 pumps, a 4,000 square foot store and 4,700 square-foot carwash. The price to bring it all into the Village is an agreement for developers to pay either 5 percent of the cost or $50,000--whichever comes first--to build a new bike path between Algonquin and Miller Roads. That would be half of the Village's share of the path--assuming a grant ever becomes available to pay for the rest of it.
Trustee's split the difference on Grove Mart's request for a big sign to alert motorists where it is. Grove Mart wanted a really big one since the new site's somewhat hidden from westbound traffic. The Board OK'ed one to match the size of the CVS pharmacy sign further west.
In the pic: LITH's new Grove Mart will look a lot like this one on Randall Road in Elgin.
