The petitioner was requesting a Special Use to establish a <br /> Greyhound Suburban Bus Station at the Park and Shop Arcade located <br /> on Arlington Heights Road and Higgins Road. <br /> Mr. Wallace began his presentation by stating that Greyhound <br /> is currently developing a series of suburban bus terminals . Wallace <br /> noted that the Park and Shop Arcade was selected because of its ideal <br /> location. The present facility would be remodeled and Greyhound <br /> would have five buses stopping per day. The major business would <br /> be a package delivery business, although Wallace noted that the <br /> proposed facility would serve passengers . <br /> Wesley began the questioning by asking Wallace why Greyhound felt <br /> that the proposed site was so attractive. Wallace responded by <br /> stating that the square footage of the proposed facility and its <br /> proximity to Route 53 and Higgins Road were the two variables that <br /> made the site desirable. Wesley next asked if the petitioner had a <br /> site plan. Wallace stated that he had a site plan and he proceeded <br /> to submit it to the Plan Commission. <br /> Wesley next turned his attention to whether packages or passengers <br /> would be the main business. Wallace noted that because of the closeness <br /> to the Industrial Park, they felt that packages would be their major <br /> business . Wesley inquired if the packages would be large or small . <br /> Wallace stated that the packages would not exceed 150 pounds . Wesley <br /> asked if the petitioner intended on having a ramp. Wallace stated <br /> that they would. Wesley's next concern was whether Greyhound planned <br /> on expanding the services. Wallace stated that the optimal amount of <br /> buses per day would be seven, although he noted that for that to <br /> occur all the variables would have to be in Greyhound's favor. Wesley <br /> continued by asking what hours the proposed facility would operate. <br /> Wallace stated that the station would operate from 7:30 A.M. to 7:00 <br /> P.M. <br />
