Building/Zoning Committee Meeting, et al.
The building and zoning aldermanic committee met on June 1, 2005 at City Hall. We dealt with second story additions and dormers. We decided on a height restriction of 30 feet for any second story addition.
Additionally, when inspectors go to a house when it is on the market, they will not be checking out every little thing. The inspectors will concentrate on safety issues. So, in the past, you couldn't sell your house in January because the city wanted you to paint your garage. Now, someone will be able to buy a house with a garage that needs a paint job. When the new owner moves in and if the paint is peeling/chipping, etc., the city will give you a ticket for that. Hopefully that makes sense.
I attended the Berwyn Development Corporation's Business After Hours on Thursday evening, May 2, 2005. There were a lot of people there. Very nice affair.
I was then able to meet with the developers of the Oak Park/Grove/32nd and Stanley project. So far, so good.
Next week is busy. On Tuesday, June 7, 2005, there is a Budget aldermanic committee meeting at 5 pm. Then, there is a Committee of the Whole meeting at 6 pm.
On Wednesday, June 8, 2005, there is a fire and police aldermanic committee meeting at 6:30 pm.
