Jan. 13th – Planning and Zoning Commission Approves Zoning Amendment and Zoning Variances

January 13, 2020

Monday evening, January 13th, the Neal Math and Science Academy project presented for approval of a zoning amendment and two zoning variances in front of the North Chicago Planning and Zoning Commission. The meeting took place in the Neal Math and Science Academy gymnasium, and many members of the public spoke in favor of the project and the approval of the zoning amendment and zoning variances, including Mayor Rockingham, Lake County Public Works Director Rodney Worden, and teachers and administrators at both Neal and District 187. The project team presented on the proposed site plan, circulation plan, building height and facade rendering, and spoke on the rationale for the placement of the building on the site.

Overall, the meeting was highly successful and presented a great opportunity for the community to clarify their questions about the project, and celebrate the progress thus far.
