On March 16, 2018, the village of Huntley issued a demolition permit for the former Huntley Outlet Center.
Per a court order dated March 15, 2018, the demolition must commence by April 16 and be completed by June 15, village of Huntley officials said.
This is the culmination of court action initiated by the village on February 14, 2018, to address fire and life safety code violations at this property.
On Feb. 28, the court issued a preliminary injunction order for the property to come in to compliance with fire and life safety codes. The court found that continued non-compliance at this property is creating a danger to the public.
Considering this finding by the court, the village and the property owners have entered into a settlement agreement, approved by the Village Board on March 8, 2018, to demolish the buildings.
“We look forward to continued collaboration to bring new economic development opportunities to the I-90 corridor,” Huntley officials said.
