City Council Approves Settlers Pointe Preliminary PUD

Settlers Pointe

On September 21, the City Council accepted the Plan Commission’s recommendation by a vote of 7 to 1 to rezone the former Musselman property from manufacturing to residential and approve preliminary plans for the proposed Settlers Pointe Subdivision. This residential development is another step forward in meeting key goals and objectives contained in the City’s 2007 Old Town/Civic Center Subarea Plan, 2015 Economic Development Plan, and City resolution 2013-22. As noted in the Economic Development Plan, residential development is a strong economic development opportunity for Warrenville. Specifically, “Higher density housing would remain the best option from an economic development point of view by providing: additional customers for existing businesses, additional population to make the community more attractive for new commercial, retail, and restaurant tenants, more housing options for office employees, and more diverse housing stock options for the Warrenville community.”

After a public hearing process that continued over three meetings, the developer, David Weekley Homes, made significant changes based on feedback from staff, the Plan Commission, and the community. Specifically, they addressed concerns about stormwater, density, parking, traffic, and building height. In the end, the developer was able to address the concerns of the community and still offer a high quality product that will attract residents who appreciate the amenities Warrenville and the surrounding area offer, while looking for a modern design to suit their evolving lifestyle.

Of particular note, was the developer’s sensitivity to the high priority Warrenville places on the environment and open space amenities. The approved plans include significant new landscaping, extensive native plantings, bioswales, raingardens, important sidewalk connections, and a neighborhood green for residents and visitors to enjoy nature and the outdoors. All of these elements will be seamlessly incorporated into the surrounding civic center area.

Weather permitting, the developer intends to begin grading the site in the fall, install utilities over the winter, and begin constructing the new homes in the spring of 2016. They predict a two-year build out of the 34 new homes that will range in price from the mid $300,000’s to upper $400,000’s. Based on preliminary projections, the City estimates this project will generate approximately $8,000,000 in new property tax revenue over the remaining 21-year life of the City’s Old Town/Civic Center Tax Increment Financing District #3.

This City looks forward to a continued, positive relationship with David Weekley Homes and to meeting the needs of the Warrenville citizens by offering modern, high quality, residential development.
