It went as fast as it came.
The proposed Palos Town Square development was tossed out last month by the city council in a narrow 4-3 vote. The development's preliminary plan sailed through three previous votes before the ultimate death blow.
The primary issue was the developer's plan to place a bank on the corner of Harlem Avenue and Route 83.
"[Residents] don’t want to see another bank in town," Ald. Dolores Kramarski said at the time. "I don’t think something is better than nothing."
Ald. Jack Clifford expressed dismay that the plan would be struck down at a preliminary stage, before the developer even had a chance to make changes.
"They didn't even give [the developer] a chance," he said.
The aldermen have had their say, now we want you to have yours.
Should additional banks in Palos Heights be a complete non-starter for any development in Palos Heights?
