The village of Oak Brook has had requests from multiple organizations
to bring new restaurants into the village. As a result the village has
to plan and approve the locations requested by the organization. A part
of the planning process required having maps made, which display the
proposed location (with dimensions), wetland areas, and detention areas
that will need to be relocated.
The image displayed with this article is a portion of one of the maps
created for a planning meeting involving village staff and
representatives of a restaurant. It was designed to give a good view of
the area and dimensions in which they have to work with, along with
possible conflicts with local wetlands. The map allowed village staff to
compare similar sized sites with the new proposed site, in order to get
an idea of where they can place entrances and exits, as well as parking
and water detention areas.
