City's application to demolish Wiant House denied by commission
WEST CHICAGO – The fate of the historic Joel Wiant House in West Chicago now sits with the city, as the role of the Historical Preservation Commission came to a close July 3 with a unanimous vote to deny the city its request for demolition.
This latest decision was the second from the commission, after the city appealed its last vote. The previous vote also concluded that the city of West Chicago is not entitled to a Certificate of Appropriateness to demolish the 144-year-old house.
The city has the option to appeal the commission's ruling within the next 15 days to the West Chicago City Council, which has the final say in whether to demolish the house, located at 151 W. Washington St. in the Turner Junction Historic District.
