The Zoning Committee has now received an amended proposal, responding to the community feedback, which would replace the initially-proposed three-flat development with a 2-story, 2800 sq. ft. single-family home. The new home would be constructed on a 25’10″x125′ lot designated 5136 N Claremont St., leaving the pre-existing three-story building on a 30’2″x125′ lot at 5138 N Claremont St.
Because the proposal must provide compliance for the existing three-flat building, the amended proposal requests a zoning change from RS-3 to RM-4.5. My office has requested that this be submitted as a Type 1 zoning change, which would tie the zoning change to the submitted plans at both lots. No other construction could be undertaken on the site in the future without a new zoning change, even if that construction would otherwise be zoning-compliant.
We expect the revised proposal to be submitted at the 2/13/2020 meeting of the Zoning Committee, held at 10:00am in City Council chambers at City Hall, 121 N LaSalle. Please submit any feedback on the revised plan via the Zoning Feedback Form by Monday Feb. 10th, 2020, so that we can provide the Zoning Committee with a timely Aldermanic response to the amended submission.
