Pete’s earns Plan Commission support – The Plan Commission recommended approval of the application for a new Pete's Market on Madison Street with a 7 to 2 vote at a meeting held online last night (Thurs., Jan. 21).  Last night’s public hearing – the second on the project – included revisions to the project to address concerns voiced at the initial meeting. The two dissenting votes were related to what the commissioners characterized as the lack of a more prominent design feature at the southwest corner of Madison Street and Oak Park Avenue. The Plan Commission approval included the condition that the applicant work with the Oak Park Area Arts Council to improve the corner configuration and make other minor façade modifications. The Plan Commission also supported the street vacation request for Euclid Avenue and the building encroachment along Madison Street.
