Opponents cite reasons including the loss of an industrial parcel, the possibility property values would be negatively impacted, the project cost and the safety of both the residents and neighbors.

The property currently houses a warehouse that has been vacant for more than a decade.

The council will vote whether to grant preliminary planned development approval. The meeting is at 7 p.m. at village hall, 200 E. Wood St., Palatine.
