Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 21, 2006

Alderman Joe Moore and the 49th Ward Zoning and Land Use Advisory Committee invite you to a meeting to discuss a proposal to re-develop the lot at 1640-42 W Fargo. The meeting will be held Wednesday, April 26, 2006, 7:00 P.M. at the Gateway Center Apartments, 7450 North Rogers Avenue.

George Samutin and his attorney, John Pikarski, will be presenting a proposal to change the zoning designation on the above lot from RT4 to B2-3 and split it in two in order to build a 4-unit building on the rear portion of the lot, which would front on Rogers Avenue. The lot is 6201 square feet and currently contains a 6-flat with a 4-car garage. The garage would be replaced by the 4-unit building. The two buildings would have a total of 10 parking spots. RT4 allows one dwelling per 1000 square feet of lot area, B2-3 allows one dwelling unit per 400 square feet of lot area.

The proposal is under review by the 49th Ward Zoning and Land Use Advisory Committee. "I look forward to hearing from the community, and will only support the project if it enjoys substantial community support," said Moore.

For further information, please call the 49th Ward Service Office at (773) 338-5796.
