    Opposition to adding multi-family        A diverse housing stock enables a person to stay in one
    housing, particularly apartments, to     community throughout their entire life, regardless of their
    the local housing stock                  budget, needs, family structure, or life stage.

                                             Design guidelines can also help ensure high quality
                                             development that adds value to the community.
    Opposition to Missing Middle             There is a greater likelihood that Missing Middle housing
    housing concept, particularly viewing    would be integrated into a new development than into an
    it as a threat to Homer Glen’s single-   existing neighborhood. The existing residential zoning will
    family detached residential identity     not change.

                                             65.8% of all land uses will be comprised of single-family
                                             residential.

     •   Concern that mixed-use/multi-family development could create crime. Comments were
         provided to staff claiming there is rampant crime occurring at two new multi-family/mixed use
         developments in Orland Park.

     •   Through a FOIA request, Village staff requested calls of service for the two developments for
         the last two years. Below are the top ten categories for calls for service – both years
         combined. None of these calls are criminal in nature.

    Opposition to “low-income housing”        Prohibiting low-income residents in a community is illegal
                                              and is considered housing discrimination. Homer Glen is
                                              also not compliant with Federal and State requirements to
                                              have at least 10%. In Will County, the 4 person household
                                              affordable limit is equal to 80 percent of the area median
                                              family income, which is $72,800.
    Concern over 159th Street being           Land use development would be governed by updated
    overtaken by multi-family residential     zoning standards that ensure 159th Street is not all multi-
    projects as a Mixed Use Corridor          family residential uses, as this would be counter to the goal
                                              of the mixed-use corridor to promote commercial
                                              development. Many of the parcels along 159th Street are
                                              narrow and deep and would benefit from the ability to have
                                              multiple uses.
    Concern that empty stores should be       The Village constantly works with property owners and

                          Hybrid Industrial/Commercial
     These uses provide product creation, warehousing, and sales under one roof, which reduces transportation
     and infrastructure costs. They also attract customers curious about the source and production of the
     products they buy. Sales can occupy less than 20% of the building, with the remainder taken up by
     product creation and warehousing.

     POTENTIAL REVISIONS TO PLAN
     The following include the suggested edits to the Land Use Plan in the consultant memorandum:

     Discussion Topics
     • Focus Mixed Use designation along 159th Street Corridor only.
     • Potential to restrict amount of Multi-Family allowed in Mixed Use Corridor.
     • Missing Middle – Clarification on Duplex, Triplex and Quadplex, this typology is currently listed as a
         potential development option in the single-family moderate density land use category when these are
         multi-family land uses. Potential to restrict missing middle designation to the 159th Street Mixed Use
         Corridor only.
     • Reduce the intensity of residential land use designations in certain areas
             Maintain certain low density areas as defined in 2005 Comp Plan
             Add back in the 2.5 Acre Rural Residential land use category
             Lower the amount of area designated for Multi-Family
                    −    AREA EAST OF LEMONT RD BETWEEN 143RD ST & COMED ROW
                    −    AREA NORTH OF MARIAN VILLAGE BETWEEN CEDAR RD & PARKER RD
     •   Scale back the intensity of development in the Cedar/Bruce area, including limiting the amount of
         commercial development
     •   Potential Industrial/Hybrid Industrial Land Uses – this is listed as a typology, but is not proposed
         anywhere in the future land use.

     Corrections/Clarifications
     • Update Retail Leakage and Surplus Analysis
     • Maintain the segment of Cedar Road north of 143rd Street as a local street (not a Secondary Arterial)
     • Provide brief definitions of each roadway designation
