Schaumburg may annex 12-home site

In addition to the Pleasant Square subdivision taking shape near Roselle and Schaumburg roads, the village of Schaumburg may be seeing more residential development a short distance west in 2014.

Officials are considering a request to annex seven acres on the south side of Schaumburg Road across from the Schaumburg Post Office, for a 12-home subdivision to be called Coventry Woods.

The land, in unincorporated Schaumburg Township, was the site of three single-family homes that have been razed, Schaumburg Village Manager Brian Townsend said.

The configuration of the property is such that the subdivision would be a cul-de-sac with very little frontage on Schaumburg Road, he added.

Though the density of the development isn't unusual for Schaumburg, one of the challenges of the project is that two acres of the site have to be reserved for water detention, Townsend said.

Attorney Barry Ash is representing developer Edward Palmer in the annexation process and said construction is planed to begin this spring.

A public hearing on the annexation is tentatively scheduled for just before the village board meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28 -- the earliest approval could occur.

Village board consideration of the project and site plan would follow the annexation approval, Townsend said.

Though Schaumburg's policy is not to actively pursue annexation of unincorporated land, the village does consider requests for annexation from property owners after looking at all relevant factors, Townsend said.
