Casino Update: Development Schedule

Memo from the Department of Community and Economic Development

The preliminary Planned Unit Development (PUD) materials for the Des Plaines Casino development were received by the Department of Community and Economic Development on January 4th and are currently undergoing staff review. Based upon this submittal, we have laid out the following timeline for the Casino’s regulatory approvals:

(subject to change)
January 25th
- Plan Commission review of Preliminary PUD submittal
January 26th - Community Development Committee review of Preliminary PUD
February 16th - City Council first reading of Preliminary PUD and zoning change
March 1st - Second Reading PUD & estimated date of commencement of demolition
March 15th - Tentative start of construction (site work)
July 30, 2011 - Completion

There are intermediary steps which must be adhered to, of course, and the final engineering and Final PUD submittals would have to follow the Preliminary almost immediately, but it looks as though those elements are already nearly complete and the schedule, while aggressive, is achievable.
