West Chicago mayor hopes city will find use for historic Wiant House
WEST CHICAGO – As the process continues to determine the fate of the historic Joel Wiant House in West Chicago, the City Council’s development committee will meet Aug. 12 to discuss options for the property.
A request for demolition of the house was denied by the city’s Historical Preservation Commission July 3, leading staff to formally ask the City Council to appeal that decision, said John Said, director of community development.
The request for demolition first came in response to a directive from the city council in fall 2011 to staff to pursue demolition if a developer for the property could not be found. Since then, the council has experienced turnover and now includes five new aldermen.
