What happened: Osborne Trails Amendment asked for 25 additional acres into the existing planned unit development.

What it means: Osborne Trails will allow for real estate development directly north of Grand Park along 191st Street. A new roundabout also would reconfigure portions of Horton Road. The new traffic pattern would be merged with an entrance and exit at both Springmill Road and 191st Street. Another section would connect 193rd Street to Horton Road. Real estate work for the project would be to the west of Horton Road. The proposal would not be adopted until September, at the earliest. Council member Cindy Spoljaric questioned the zoning area. The amendment was forwarded to the Aug. 8 Advisory Plan Commission meeting for further review.
