South Barrington residents oppose collective planning to build church – NBC Chicago

A religious group wishing to build a church in South Barrington is met with resistance from local residents who are frustrated with the process of buying the land.

The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, a Christian sect with more than 40,000 members worldwide, aims to build a church on 35 acres of land near the intersection of Route 59 and West Bartlett Road.

At a park district board meeting on Wednesday, dozens of residents argued the district was focused on a single buyer for the land on which the PBCC hopes to build a meeting hall that can seat about 200 people. people.

“They bought this land for $3 million in 2004, they’re planning to sell it for $1.7 million. Real estate is as hot as it was in 2004, we’re worried about taxpayers’ money and why it’s being sold at such a loss, especially when real estate is so hot,” resident Sage Fattahian told NBC Chicago.

Residents claim that informational letters were only sent to some residents, not to hundreds of locals living near the proposed site.

The community group said it abruptly filed a lawsuit in Cook County for a temporary restraining order hearing, scheduled for September 5.

The Park District said it originally planned to respond to questions about the misinformation, but said it could no longer do so, citing ongoing litigation.

PCBB members said they would open their doors to everyone, aiming to work with and hire neighbors, and offered to make changes to change their access plans to a residential street.

The South Barrington Park District Executive Director announced that no action would be taken on the matter on Wednesday, but hopes the plan will move forward “in the near future”.

Note: This story previously incorrectly identified the Executive Director of the Park District as the Village President. This has since been corrected.
