CENTEX HOMES CORPORATION (Agenda item 3.E.) <br /> The early meeting was scheduled so that the Plan Commission <br /> might review a revised plat of Section 21 (located north of Section 17 <br /> and east of Meacham Road) proposed by Centex Homes , Inc. Wil Liebow, <br /> Vice-President of Centex Homes, Inc. and Land Planner, Michael Ives <br /> were present at the meeting. Chairman McGrenera opened the discussion <br /> by indicating that the Village Board was actively pursuing with Centex <br /> a solution to the problem of a southern access to Section 21 . A tenta- <br /> tive proposal under review at this time was a north/south street which <br /> might eventually extend to and be aligned with Home Avenue, a north/ <br /> south street directly west of Section 17. <br /> The new (rough sketch) plat introduced by Centex was said by <br /> Mr. Liebow to have the following improvements as requested by the <br /> Commission: (a) Access to the south, (b) some odd shaped lots corrected, <br /> (c) relaxed curve at the northeast section of the tract, (d) lake moved <br /> west to prevent potential traffic mishap, and (e) internal street pattern <br /> revised to slow down traffic. <br /> Thomas Hamilton arrived at the meeting at 7:40 P.M. Joseph Cimino arrived <br /> at 7:41 P.M. <br /> Discussion then centered on the short distance between the <br /> Meacham Road and Biesterfield Road (extended) intersection and the <br /> first street in Section 21 north of Biesterfield Road which would <br /> intersect with Meacham Road. Concern was expressed that these inter- <br /> sections would be too close for both to be signalized and, therefore, <br /> the latter would become a dangerous intersection. <br /> Marcus Grice arrived at the meeting at 8:05 P.M. <br />
