COMPLETED – A NOTICE OF INTENT HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THIS ZONING CHANGE REQUEST
Zoning change requests are submitted to the City by property owners and/or developers. The 40th Ward uses a Community Driven Zoning process to evaluate all requests received by the Ward office. Holding of a public meeting does not imply support or opposition from the Ward, and Alderman Vasquez does not issue letters of support or opposition until the public process is complete.
Common Address: 5040 N Western
Current Zoning: B3-2
Requested Zoning: B2-3
Developer: JEK Enterprises LLC
Project Description: Purchaser plans a four-story residential building. Under current zoning, project would have ground-floor commercial with three units above. Rezoning allows for a four-unit, all-residential development, which would have slightly reduced height and increased setbacks relative to a by-right development with ground-floor commercial (see project comparison table below).
