In March 2018, the Village submitted an Application for a Map Amendment/Rezoning to rezone approximately 114 parcels (109 addresses) from R-1 Single-Family to R-2 Two Family Residence District. These properties had previously been zoned for two-family uses for over five decades prior to the adoption of the Village's new Zoning Code in 2011 when they were rezoned to single-family. The Village submitted the rezoning application in response to requests received from multiple two-family property owners along La Grange Road. The property owners asserted that the down zoning of the their properties from R-2 to R-1 restricted their land use rights and limited their ability to sell their property, thereby devaluing the property.
On April 17, 2018, the Planning & Zoning Commission held a public hearing and accepted testimony from the applicant (represented by Village staff) and members of the public. All of the materials related to the Map Amendment/Rezoning Application are available below.
