Recap: Planning and Development Committee


Here’s a recap of our live coverage of tonight’s Evanston City Council Planning and Development Committee meeting.

A packet with information on tonight’s agenda items is available online.

Three items on the agenda tonight — including a request of grant landmark status to “the house that moved” — a Prairie-style home that was relocated from Wilmette to a lot at 2771 Crawford Ave. in Evanston.

Meeting called to order at 7:18 p.m.

Minutes approved.

P 1 – Plat of resubdivision for 917-919 Edgemere Court.

Would move the common lot line about 10 feet to the north … making the south lot (917) larger.

Approved for action.

P 2 – Special use for Sushi Burrito, 1565 Sherman Ave.

Approved for introduction.

P 3 – Landmark status for 2771 Crawford Ave.

Alderman Eleanor Revelle says photos in the packet show a real commitment to historic preservation.


Meeting adjourned at 7:21 p.m.

City Council meeting to follow immediately.
