Zoning change without notification

Hi neighbors. So the vacant lot next to my property east of Noble on Erie Street was rezoned recently. But none of the neighbors received any zoning letters for a hearing. We receive letters all the time for other properties. I notified the zoning board but I'm not getting a response. Anyone know of a recourse in a situation like this? I thought it was law that a zoning change requires a hearing and neighbors need to be notified.

    I'm very disappointed to hear Ald Moreno overruled EPCC position against this and especially stunned that he did not force developer to present to Neighbors in a community meeting as is the EPCC process. That is the same process as CGNA and other groups. He only once in 7 years overruled our position.
    Dian, please email me at cgna@cgnaweb.org to discuss more offline. Lyn

  • I want to thank everyone for your help. I'm meeting with Raymond this week. I don't expect the outcome to change but hopefully I'll get a better understanding of under what circumstances the Alderman opts to disregard the direct neighbors and the community group have a public hearing.

    I talked to a journalist who told me that these are called spot zonings and that the Alderman will have someone like a volunteer go out and get petitions. And that happened in this case. Someone from 1stwardfirst solicited petitions on behalf of the developer who bought the property. He even left 1rstwardfirst business cards with my employees when I was out of town when asking them to sign the petition. Not sure how many people signed it (none of the neighbors I talked to had) but I'm assuming this becomes part of the case for the zoning. Has anyone else had any experience with this happening as part of the zoning process?

    Where to Watch the Blackhawks' Playoff Games in Chicago
    If attending a game is out of the picture, consider watching the game somewhere where you can still be surrounded by fellow fans. Whether the game is home or away, you can still catch the excitement at one, or a few, of the many official Blackhawks bars across Chicago.

    Chicago has a lot more problems to worry about, things like murder and violent robberies, than some people celebrating a championship!
