ELBURN—Elburn village officials on Monday turned down a developer’s request to annex property for a residential subdivision south of the village.

“The property is too far from the village to be considered for an annexation agreement at this time,” Assistant Village Administrator David Morrison said.

Naperville-based Oliver-Hoffman recently requested that the Village Board review the conceptual plan for the development proposed for a 400-acre site east of Green Road and south of Main Street between Elburn and Sugar Grove.

The plan includes 163 large single-family-home lots, horse stables and pastures, and an equestrian trail.

During Monday’s Village Board meeting, village officials suggested that the developers seek approval from Kane County for their proposal instead.

Without an annexation to a municipality, the developer must obtain approval from Kane County for the subdivision.

However, trustee Ken Anderson said the property is designated as agricultural in the Kane County land use plan.

The developer could not be reached for comment.
