The city of Joliet Plan Commission will be looking at rezoning that land from Single-Family and Multi-Family Residential to Light Industrial Zoning. The Northpoint development was originally under consideration at the Compass Business Park, a 2,200 acre $1.2 billion development. Current land records show that these 103 acres added to the contiguous property of the Compass Business Park would place this project at 3,000 acres. It was just just last year that the village of Elwood was approached and public debated the logistics park project, which did not move forward after push back from the community on the need for another major development and concerns over increased truck traffic. The city of Joliet Plan Commission will look over the proposal at their next meeting on October 17th.
