La Grange Park Village Board rejects amendment to promote front porches
LA GRANGE PARK – A proposed amendment to the village's zoning code to promote the building of front porches was denied by the Village Board Sept. 24.
The amendment would have exempted the first 200 square feet of unenclosed front porches from the village's building coverage limit of 30 percent, allowing residents to build front porches without sacrificing interior space.
The amendment was requested by McNaughton Development, Inc., the developer building eight homes in the new Heatherdale subdivision. Village staff supported the amendment, but the board voted 4-2 against it.
