Wilmette residents concerned about plans for a hotel in their suburb were out Tuesday morning passing out leaflets.

The Wilmette Village Board will meet April 10. One of the items expected to be discussed is a plan for a hotel in the north suburb.

The planning commission approved a Marriott Inn on Old Glenview Road, and the issue now goes before the full board.

Opponents say there will be more traffic, crime, view obstruction as well as garbage stench.
