Despite Objections, Gas Station Plan Passes in Mundelein

(Mundelein, IL)  Despite repeated objections, a controversial gas station plan has been approved in Mundelein. The business, expected to be a Thornton’s gas station and convenience store, will be built on the corner of Routes 45 and 176…replacing a restaurant and a long vacant industrial building. Several residents complained about the proposal saying they didn’t want the noise, artificial lighting, or 24-hour operations that the station would bring. Despite those issues, Village Board members approved the plan unanimously on Monday night.
