A plan to amend Deerfield’s zoning requirements to encourage retail use in the Lake Cook Road corridor will be discussed by the Village Board of Trustees during its regularly scheduled meeting at 7:30 p.m. today at the Village Hall.
If approved, the proposal will give a boost to Deerbrook Mall, Cadwell Corners, Deer Park Plaza and other locations in the Lake Cook Corridor, other businesses and potential retailers in the vicinity of Lake Cook and Waukegan Roads.
The proposals will increase the size of a store still needing a special use permit, require a certain amount of retail use and exclude existing locations which do not lend themselves to stores or restaurants, according to the Plan Commission suggestions.
Other items on today’s agenda include a change in the number of liquor licenses allowed in the Village, changing Deerfield’s business cycle from its current fiscal year to a calendar year, a special use for Joy of the Game and more.
A complete agenda and background information is contained on the Village's website.
