Ad Hoc Committee on Housing – 6:30 p.m. – Committee Room

Agenda Summary

  • Adopted Point – A definition of the income and housing cost ranges was agreed to at the last Committee meeting, along with a comment on proper maintenance, for the purposes of continued discussion. In statement form, the following was agreed to by committee members: “Working families earning between $65,000 and $125,000 have difficulty finding and purchasing quality housing valued between $175,000 and $325,000 in Downers Grove. The proper maintenance and upkeep of existing houses in this price range is integral to maintaining attainable housing throughout the community.”
  • Additional Points for Discussion: 1) Should the Village Council formulate a housing policy for the Village? 2) What actions does the Committee favor to address the gap? (Examples: cede bond cap to IHDA ; offer financial assistance to ensure maintained houses; rezone three areas along RR track; overlay zoning; limit new builds to only 20% larger than neighboring housing)
