Our Vision of a Commercial Roosevelt

Our Vision of a Commercial Roosevelt

  For years we have watched as suburban towns around Winfield have grown and changed to meet the needs of their residents. We have wondered why Winfield never grows or changes.

Our Comprehensive Plan

Our Comprehensive Plan

There has been much talk from the politicians backed by the Political Action Committee that calls itself “Winfield United” about not wanting to develop Roosevelt Road “until there is a plan”.

My name is Jack Bachman. I live in Winfield on a 2.4 acre parcel of land on Roosevelt Road. When I moved into my house years ago, Roosevelt was a sleepy two-lane road. It’s now a four lane State highway and in the next year or so the Illinois Department of Transportation is going to [...]

My name is Barbara DeFalco. My friend Patty and I purchased two acres and a house on Roosevelt Road in 2005. We had no idea how difficult life on Roosevelt Road was going to be.

The Only Residential Gas Station in DuPage County
The Only Residential Gas Station in DuPage County

Since 1962 there has been a gas station on the corner of Winfield and Roosevelt Road. Unfortunately, the gas station had the same zoning as your home does; it was zoned residential. This 50 year old mistake was slated to be fixed by the village board  in 2012. Their goal was to synchronize the property use with its [...]

Joseph Cantore purchased 7 acres at the South West corner of Winfield and Roosevelt Road in 1962. That same year, Sinclair (now Marathon) opened a gas station on the North East corner.

Empty Lot, Shattered Dream

Dorothy Zabinski bought an empty lot on Wynwood Street with the hope of building a home. Two things conspired to shatter this dream. Economic turmoil that the world has endured for the last 6 years complicated the finances. Not having enough room to place a water well and septic tank was the second. While Dorothy’s [...]
