The building is up and the signs along the interstate point to a new showroom soon. But, according to a report by freepressnewspapers.com, the new EZ Living recreational vehicle sales office has yet to host a grand opening, waiting for word from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).

Last month, the Braidwood Planning and Zoning Commission recommended to the full Braidwood City Council that the commissioners approve the final plat for EZ Living. City officials said that issues with the entrance into the new site have caused a delay, noting that the Division Street entrance is technically on a state highway.

“We’re still trying to get the plat recorded with IDOT,” said city administrator Andy Galatte.

Members of the zoning board noted that issues with the state include approval of the entrance and questions on whether there would be another access road into the property. Zoning board members also told the council that the size of the lot could not be determined until IDOT approves the entrance.

The board recommended that the council approve the plat, leaving room to make lot line changes as necessary when the state is done with its part.

The building at the new site is finished, with only some minor inside work yet to be done. The staff at EZ Living said they’ll be ready to open shop as soon as they get the go ahead.

“We can’t move until they get everything approved,” said EZ Living office manager DJ Kerwood. “We are raring to go… the building is pretty much done, but until we can get customers in and out of there, we can’t move.”
