After more than 15 years, the former Brown’s Chicken and Pasta property in Palatine is about to be sold.
“This would allow us to move on from something horrific that took place in our past,” Palatine Councilman Aaron Del Mar told the Daily Herald.
Shortly after the massacre, the building was occupied for less than a year by a dry-cleaning business, which closed in 1994. The building stayed vacant until 2001, when it was razed to leave space for a parking lot.
The proposed bank building would include a drive-through and special signage at the northeast corner of Northwest Highway and Smith Street.
