Planning & Advocacy Committee meeting: October 2019

There will be a presentation by The Community Builders regarding a proposed project at 4715 N. Western, currently a city-owned parking lot, across the street from the Western "L" plaza.

The proposed project is five stories mixed-use (commercial on the ground floor), with 42 one- and two-bedroom units. It is a mixed-income building with all units reserved for residents who earn between 30% and 80% of the Area Median Income.

This is an important project for the future of the neighborhood.

This is not a public community meeting — this is a committee meeting convened in advance of the potential development going before the 47th Ward Zoning Advisory Council. After that stage, a community meeting may be called for larger public comment.

To participate in this and other HOLS committee meetings, you must be a dues-paying member. If you are not already a member, please join prior to the meeting using our website (or bring a check to the meeting).

Planning & Advocacy Committee meeting

We'll meet with a local developer to discuss the project around a proposed zoning change at 2208 W. Lawrence Ave.

From the developer, Fred Agustin:

The property is currently zoned B2-3 District, however, that re-zoning was a type 1 application whereby a specific development was tied to the rezoning.

Developer's client would like to keep the B2-3 District with a 16-unit, all-residential building. Will need to go through the zoning process again since the project is changing.

This is not a public community meeting — this is a committee meeting convened in advance of the potential development going before the 47th Ward Zoning Advisory Council. After that stage, a community meeting may be called for larger public comment.

To participate in this and other HOLS committee meetings, you must be a dues-paying member. If you are not already a member, please join prior to the meeting using our website (or bring a check to the meeting).
