We have had our property downzoned from B-3 to RS-3.5. For those of you who don't speak Chicago Zoning Codes, this means that our property and our neighbor's property are now zoned for a single family or two-flat and cannot be leveled to build monster condos.
The former B-3 zoning was actually a business zoning, which would allow a building to be built from property line to property line- right up to the curb. We had visions of some monster condo being built where Mark's house is and right up to the property line. Now, this can't happen and we have made an effort to preserve our building and our neighbor's.
Now, If I can just get them to put that Stop Sign in.
