Glenview trustees on Oct. 6 approved a formality that sets the stage for the issuance of building permits for the Logistics Campus Subdivision on Sanders Road.

Approved as part of the board's consent agenda in a meeting that lasted only about 12 minutes, the board approved a resolution creating nine lots and five outlots within the former Allstate campus.

 

Glenview municipal code requires that all properties be complete lots of record before any building permits can be issued, according to the material presented in the agenda item.

The board's approval followed the Glenview New Development Commission's unanimous recommendation on Sept. 28.

Dermody Properties Midwest Region Partner Neal Driscoll was in the Glenview board room to witness the approval of the subdivision. On July 19 the board of trustees approved annexation agreements and site plans at the Allstate campus, and provided initial support of a tax incentive to Dermody Properties' logistics development proposed for the space.

The plan is to construct up to 10 industrial buildings spanning 3.2 million square feet on 230 of the approximately 293 acres formerly held by either Allstate, Cook County or Prospect Heights. The land is both east and west of Sanders Road, extending from Willow Road south to the Glenview Place subdivision, and east to the I-294 Tri-State Tollway.

The Naval Air Station Glenview Museum, 2040 Lehigh Ave., is getting an original World War II Link aircraft control simulator.

Once restored, the trainer is intended to serve as a display piece as well as a working trainer for museum visitors, history buffs and those interested in aviation or STEM.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Equipment such as this Link flight trainer was used at Naval Air Station Glenview to train pilots before they flew in World War II. The rare piece, manufactured by Link Aviation, was the latest technology at the time of its use.

The trainer is currently housed in a hangar at the Waukegan National Airport. The plan is to complete the restoration over the next year and then place it into the Naval Air Station Glenview Museum, said Bill Marquardt, president of the Glenview Hanger One Foundation.

The Glenview Hangar One Foundation, which commemorates those who served at the Glenview base, seeks support for the project, as well as people interested in helping restore the trainer.

The foundation has established a Go Fund Me account for the project, at gofund.me//dd113029. Donations also may be made directly to the museum on Lehigh Avenue.

For information on restoration, reach Marquardt via email, wam51@comcast.net.

Loads of laundry
