He had plans to bring Hyundai to Essington Road since opening that dealership in 2005, D'Arcy said. The Hyundai business has outgrown the Jefferson Street location, he said.
The Joliet Zoning Board of Appeals and Plan Commission on Thursday will review D'Arcy's plans for 2020-2022 Essington Road, which require a rezoning of 16 acres now zoned residential as well as a special use permit and a series of zoning variations.
The D'Arcy Motors operation on Essington Road, which includes new-vehicle franchises for Buick and GMC, as well as used-car sales, would cover more than 28 acres with the expansion, according to a city staff report for the zoning changes.
Plans include landscaping and zoning along the south end of the property to create a buffer for the adjacent residential area.
