Proposed Walgreens on Crawford Ave. Goes before Skokie Plan Commission Dec. 6
Submitted by the City of Evanston


The Village of Skokie’s Plan Commission will meet at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6 to discuss plans for a new Walgreens (14,490 square feet) to be built at the former site of UBBA Tap on Crawford Ave. just south of Old Orchard Rd. Walgreens is also seeking permission from the village for a liquor license and permission to build a drive-thru. The UBBA Tap, formerly known as UBBA & Crawford Inn, has been located at 9956 Crawford Ave. for more than 70 years and went out of business earlier this year.

While the proposed site of the Walgreens is entirely within the Village of Skokie, the proposed project is directly across the street from residential property located in the City of Evanston to the north (Harrison St.) and east (Crawford Ave.). Interested parties, including Evanston residents, are encouraged to attend this meeting or submit comments.

At the meeting, Skokie officials will discuss several agenda items involving the former UBBA Tap restaurant and other adjacent parcels to the west and south of the property. The agenda items include map amendments, special use permits for the sale of liquor and a pharmacy drive-thru. Other related items under consideration include a subdivision, alley vacation, dedication of a new alley and other zoning relief.
