Sycamore City Council to vote on permit for Meijer store

SYCAMORE – Plans for a Meijer supercenter are set to come before the Sycamore City Council for a vote Monday after gaining approval from the Planning Commission.

The council is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Monday in the Council Chambers of the Sycamore Center, 308 W. State St.

The proposed Meijer store would be in the Sycamore Crossings subdivision at the northwest corner of DeKalb Avenue and Peace Road, which the city annexed in 2006. 

Planning commissioners unanimously voted to recommend the proposal from Rockford-based First Midwest Group after a public hearing March 13, where some residents of Sycamore Crossings raised
concerns about living near the store.

Sycamore Crossings includes about 65 acres zoned for commercial use and 17 acres zoned residential, with most of the houses along Anjali Court.

The project would consist of the 193,000-square-foot store and a proposed 688 parking spots. The plans also include a 6-foot fence and row of trees behind the store as a barrier to the residences along Anjali Court.

Meijer, which is privately owned, operates 230 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

Meijer supercenters offer groceries; electronics; garden, patio and household goods; toys; clothing; health and beauty products; sporting goods; baby items; party supplies; and pet care, home improvement and automotive products, according to the proposal.
