A decision has been made regarding this zoning change request. Please see the attached Notice of Aldermanic Intent.
NOTICE OF ZONING CHANGE REQUEST
Our office has received a request for an amendment to Planned Development 253, which defines the zoning for Misericordia Home. Misericordia is a non-profit operated by the Sisters of Mercy and the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago that serves children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Planned Development (PD), last modified in 1996, governs the 31-acre campus operated by Misericordia, which currently houses approximately 600 children and adults, with a waiting list of over 300.
The proposed amendment would incorporate into PD 253 the property at 1925 W. Thome, most recently used by Unity Church, for the construction of 16 new group homes, serving 6-8 residents each. Click here to download and read the full proposal presented by Misericordia to our office.
