Postponed “Channahon 68” Took Place Wednesday Night To Packed Room: Village Board Votes Unanimously

A meeting to discuss a controversial new development in Channahon took place Wednesday night after it was postponed on Monday, November 20th due to an overflow crowd. The project is called “Channahon 68.” This is a proposed commercial development on 68 acres of land located at the northeast corner of US Route 6 & S. Thomas Dillon Dr. The site features a commercial anchor lot with several out lots closer to Thomas Dillon Drive. The Channahon Village Board unanimously voted against rezoning a property just east of the intersection of I-55 and Route 6. TransChicago Truck Group currently located off of NE Frontage Road in Shorewood wanted to relocate their truck dealership and service center to Channahon. The meeting was held at the Channahon Jr. High School cafeteria to host about 150 people in attendance.
