Vote set on Lowe's, Meijer entryways

DANVILLE — As more signage has gone up for Meijer and hiring has started, aldermen Tuesday night will consider a $509,009 contract with Duce Construction of Champaign to relocate one of Lowe’s entryways to line up with a new Meijer entryway from Vermilion Street.

The contract is for alignment work for the Lowe’s and Tractor Supply Co. entryways and demolition of the former Classy Critters building just south of Lowe’s.

The work is being paid by gas tax funds in addition to reimbursement from Meijer, Inc. of $276,206 for the base bid and $39,384 for additional alternative bid work.

The base bid improvements add a dedicated right turn lane for northbound Vermilion Street traffic into the Meijer and Tractor Supply entrance. This cost is being reimbursed by Meijer.

The removal of the structure, formerly Classy Critters, and site remediation and construction of a new commercial entrance at 3628 N. Vermilion St. is being paid for by the city.

The existing Lowe’s Vermilion Street entrance would be closed and relocated south to 3628 N. Vermilion St. New driveway pavement would be constructed to the existing Lowe’s parking lot so that the Meijer and Tractor Supply entrance aligns with the relocated Lowe’s entrance.

The alignment means a concrete barrier median would not be constructed on Vermilion Street.

The city purchased 3628 N. Vermilion St., and would provide easement to Lowe’s for their relocated access.

In other business, the council will consider:

n A special-use permit requested by James and Kelly J. Miller to allow a manufactured home to remain permanently at 22223 North 1525 East Road, north of the Danville Country Club, in the Rural Residential zoning district.

The Danville Area Planning and Zoning Commission recommended denying the petition.

According to Danville Urban Services Manager Chris Milliken, the council will consider approving the petition with the conditions: the permit is non-transferable and stays with the current owners and the permit expires five years from issuance.
