The corner of Vollmer Road and Crawford Avenue in Flossmoor could look very different if a proposed Meijer supercenter is approved by the village board in December.
Earlier this month, the Plan Commission approved the company's proposal for a 192,000-square-foot store.
“They talked about the impact on the neighborhood. There were some concerns about traffic with Crawford being a two-lane roadway. There were also some concerns about noise and light pollution. We’ll be working with Meijer to see if we can take care of everyone’s concerns and mitigate them.”
Three houses on the property would be demolished if the Meijer is built, but completion of the store would be a few years off, according to Meijer. The store would stand within the Southwest Flossmoor Tax Increment Financing District.
The closest Meijer in the Southland is in Orland Park.
