On Tuesday council will consider opposing an upzoning request in unincorporated Downers Grove at College Road from single family residential to R-5 high density multifamily residential, and supporting an upzoning request in incorporated Downers Grove at Fairview Avenue from single family residential to R-5a high density multifamily residential.
The difference? The unincorporated area has already had it’s single family zoning broken by the higher density multifamily development at Maple and Elinore, and Fairview Avenue has already had it’s zoning broken by a higher density multifamily development just south of Fairview and 63rd.
Another difference? In the case of unincorporated DG, a strong majority of residents opposed the zoning change. On Fairview Avenue, a strong majority of the residents oppose the zoning change.
