Rezone on Sheridan Road

6 May

A couple days ago the city council did what we all knew they’d do, they approved the plans for the old Lincoln Park Hospital site. The point of this blog is not to pass judgement on other developments in different neighborhoods, however, this project has been well publicized and illustrates a more relevant issue: zoning.

When it comes to developments, zoning can make or break a project. In Lincoln Park it proved to be a big hurdle and the fight doesn’t appear to be over yet.

In Edgewater and along Sheridan Road we have the opportunity to ‘down zone’ the property next to the new grocery store at the corner of Foster & Sheridan. We do not need a 20 story rental building in our neighborhood! If you agree, sign our petition and let Alderman-elect Harry Osterman hear from you!
