Public Hearing Tonight: 627 N Lake Street

January 13, 2014 2:51 PM

Tonight, at the City-County Building there is a public hearing to discuss a proposed addition to 627 N Lake Street (Sigma Alpha Epsilon). We will hear about the developer's revised plans, which would call for the construction of a three story addition to the existing house. This is a major change from their original plan of demolition. Members of the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.

This project has experienced significant changes between the time when it was first introduced and today. Although the original project did not receive support from City staff, the feedback from community members and the neighborhood have been helpful in redesigning a project, and City has modified their report to give the project a favorable review. Most importantly, the existing structure is saved within the project and the lakefront setback is protected, while providing enough density for the fraternity to service its members. 

Approval for the house will be on the Plan Commission agenda tomorrow, and City staff has recommended that it be placed on the "consent agenda." This means the Staff is comfortable if the Plan Commission passes the project without any additional discussion from members. However, if members of members of the public would like to express their thoughts, they are still welcome to speak at the meeting. Just because an item is on the consent, passage is not guaranteed, although very likely. 

The public hearing will start at 6 pm at the City-County Building, room 201.
