I saw this old article about the Lake and Harlem area about how the Zoning Board of Appeals approved a small Bank of America location in the old Borders Bookstore location. Although the article below states that the zoning was cleared and it was waiting approval by the village other articles state that the location was approved.
However, I have not seen any development or construction done yet I bring up this old article because as I previously posted that a Target is being introduced into that same very area. The traffic at this intersection is going to become a nightmare.
I think it is important to think or know about this issue not to have something to write about or bitch about but to have in mind at a future time especially when planning trips through this area. The traffic is a doozy now just imagine the increase of traffic when these two businesses are added to this intersection.
Oak Park, IL has a lot of problems due to parking and traffic throughout the village, but this one will be an assfucking of tremendous proportions.
