THE LAKE FOREST LEADER THE GLENCOE ANCHOR THE GLENVIEW LATERN THE WINNETKA BEACON THE NORTHBROOK TOWER TJHE WILMETTE BEACIN THE HIGHLAND PARK LANDMARK THE NORTHBROOK TOWER Sober-living facility moves forward with neutral recommendation Dozens of attendees wore green ribbons in support of Providence Farm, a sober-living facility, during the Northbrook Plan Commission meeting on Feb. 7. The facility, that if approved will be located at 1620 Sunset Ridge Road, would provide a transitional home for men, ages 18- 30, from Northbrook and the surrounding areas after they have completed shortterm intensive rehabilitation programs. In order for the project to go forward with development, the Village must approve two text amendments regarding zoning codes and a special permit. The request modified definitions of “community residence” and “transitional service facilities,” as well as regulations for such facilities in single family and multi-family residential districts. The special permit would allow a group home with up to 11 residents in the R-2 Single-Family Residential District. The commission gave four votes in support and three votes against the facility. The review moves forward to the Village Board, with the neutral count due to the absence of two commissioners. No further public comment was accepted about this issue at the meeting.

THE WINNETKA CURRENT Winnetka stormwater improvement project plans in limbo Following months at the drawing board with Strand Associates and the Cook County Forest Preserve, the Winnetka Village Council explained that they still do not have an action plan for the stormwater management and improvement project facing western and southwestern Winnetka. Trustee Chris Rintz, who led the discussion at the Village’s Feb. 7 meeting, stressed that although the team has not reached a consensus, it eliminated a handful of drafts that would not meet the community’s needs. Strand’s initial plan, presented in early 2016, targeted Cook County’s Hibbard Road Preserve, Duke Childs Field and Crow Island Woods Park as potential water storage locations. However, the project was met with strong opposition by Winnetka residents and was later dismissed by the Village. Still, Strand and the Village Council are hopeful they can use Duke Childs Field for underground water storage in their next recommendation. Reporting by Lauren Kiggins, Freelance Reporter.

THE GLENVIEW LANTERN Vacant Bess lot could expand parking options The Glenview Village Board considered an amendment to the municipal code that would allow temporary downtown parking in the former Bess Hardware lot during the board’s Feb. 7 meeting. Glenview purchased the vacant property, located at 1850 Glenview Road, on Jan. 25 with the intent to resell by the send of 2018. In the meantime, Village staff recommends establishing a two-hour parking restriction until the new owner commences redevelopment. The new temporary parking would include the main Bess lot and a small zone along Depot Street on the west side of the building, adding 50 stalls to the downtown area. The recommendation would allow parking for a maximum of two hours between 8 a.m.-6 p.m. from Monday-Saturday, without any restrictions after 6 p.m. during those days or anytime on Sundays.

From the Village Historic Preservation Commission recommends landmark designation At the Feb. 7 meeting, members of the Historic Preservation Commission unanimously approved a motion to recommend to the Village Board honorary landmark designation of the home at 411 Lakeside Terrace. The commission initiated its discussion of the home at its Oct. 4 meeting prompted by a demolition inquiry. In recognition of the home’s significance, and concerned about its future, commission members agreed to nominate the home for honorary landmark designation and prepared a landmark application that was reviewed at their Dec. 6 and Jan. 3 meetings. While the honorary level of landmark designation provides limited protection for the home, the commission is hopeful that it will help to raise awareness of this significant property, which is currently for sale and being marketed as an opportunity to restore an architecturally significant home. Known historically as the Charles Henry Hermann House, for its first owner, it was designed by prominent architect Howard Van Doren Shaw and built in 1911. The home is one of 12 structures designed by Shaw located within the Village of Glencoe. Shaw is noteworthy for his design of Market Square in Lake Forest and many other large estate homes throughout the North Shore. The next Historic Preservation Commission meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m March 7. Information compiled from weekly Village newsletter
