The Rantoul Village Board is expected to vote on a Plan Commission recommendation to re-plat property for development of a 42-unit senior villa housing complex.
Village Inspector Dan Culkin outlined the project at the board’s study session Tuesday.
Miller-Valentine Residential Construction, Cincinnati, plans to build the ranch-style multiplex villas in the area of Twin Lakes Drive and Alta Brown Drive, north of Brookstone Estates.
The commission also reviewed a new planned-use development for the project, which will include attached garages and a club house.
Culkin said the project will include a mixture of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.
The proposal will include transfer of ownership of some area streets to the village, including Taylor Place, the north end of Twin Lakes Drive and the south part of Gibbs Drive.
“Those streets, because of the issues we’ve had in ownership of those properties and serving more than one group ... would cause a lot of problems as far as who would take care of the maintenance...,” Culkin said of the reason they will be transferred to the village.
The developer will make other public improvements, including asphalt street overlayment, a new water main and on-site storm water detention.
The board will vote on the Plan Commission recommendation at its monthly meeting at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, at the Municipal Building, 333 S. Tanner St.
