Carpentersville Panel Backs Plans to Build Houses, Preserve Wetlands

A different approach toward land development worked for Lakewood Homes, as the Carpentersville plan commission voted 3-0 to recommend Lakewood's concept plan for a 296-acre site north of the Gleneagle subdivision.

The site, along Huntley Road, contains 56 acres of wetlands and flood plains, which Lakewood Homes would preserve in their entirety.

"That in itself makes it different from most developments," said David Russo, executive vice president for Lakewood Homes. "Most developers mitigate (wetlands), but they are so large here they become an amenity."

The concept plan calls for 520 single-family homes with a New England village theme. House sizes would range from 1,000 to 4,200 square feet, and the homes would cost $150,000 to $300,000.

Density would be 1.76 units per acre. Lakewood plans to donate 5,000 square feet for a branch library, 1,000 square feet for community uses, and 1,000 square feet to Carpentersville police.
