Discussions continue over fate of historic West Chicago home
WEST CHICAGO – How the removal of the Joel Wiant House in West Chicago will affect the city's historic district is at the heart of the Historical Preservation Commission's decision whether to approve city efforts to demolish the home.
The city appealed a previous decision by the commission to deny its request for a Certificate of Appropriateness to demolish the Wiant House, leading to additional meetings about the home's future. A second decision by the commission is expected to be made July 3.
"As we discussed previously, it would impact the rhythm, the historic fabric and in general, the integrity of our downtown," commission Chair Janet Dayton Hale said.
