The Lake Forest City Plan Commission met recently to begin to develop a wish list for the 10-acre property on Laurel Ave., according to an article by the Chicago Tribune. The officials reiterated their desire to see a project that would bring more affordable housing to the community. The design include four stories mix-used dwellings, which would include housing units, as well as retail and commercial spaces.
The parameters were approved unanimously by the Planning Commission, and the City Council will decide — with guidance by the planning commission — what should be built and who should build it, the Tribune article states.
Patch readers said in a May poll that they do not want affordable housing to come to Lake Forest.
