DEVELOPMENT, CUinFP hosts Roos architect [FP]

Thursday, August 24 at 7:00 PM Citizens United in Forest Park will host architect John Schiess to discuss development of the Roos Building. The meeting will be at St. Peter's Church, 500 Hannah. For more info call 771-2478.


  • Did anyone attend this event? Did the developer state how he is allowed to work on the property without approval yet from the village council (the PUD expired in September 2005 and was not renewed)?

  • John Scheiss made a good presentation.

    Here are the questions I’d like answered. How many guest parking spots will the Roos development use on an upper 1/3 night? On an upper 1/3 weekend night? On Superbowl weekend?

    There are only 14 guest spots for a bunch of townhouses and 70 condo units.

    Also, Scheiss talked of a plan where the Roos development would get a number of permit parking spots on the residential street (Hannah, I think) and pay the village.

    Rather than the money going to the village, it seems like most of it should go to reducing the property taxes of the home owners who are forced to accept permit parking in front of their homes. It seems like the home owners are bearing more of the diminished quality of life than is the village.

  • What the heck are "permit parking spots on the residential street"? Is that how all the cars on Circle between Madison and Randolph get to continuously park on the street get to do that? I thought we had no overnight parking on the streets.

    Yeah, when this Scheiss thing comes before the council (doesn't it have to be approved first, even though they are already working there....go figure) let's hope it doesn't fly right through with not enough parking. ENOUGH ALREADY with this not enough parking crap.
