Zoning: 1340 W. Wolfram
This property is currently zoned RS-3 for single family or 2-unit buildings. The Builder intends to demolish the current building and construct a single-family house for a specific client. The Builder is seeking a zoning upgrade to RT-3.5. The zoning upgrade would allow for a taller building with higher total livable square footage and a smaller back yard to be built than under the current zoning. The 1300 block of Wolfram has a mish-mash of zoning designations with a block of parcels west of the Playlot on the north side of Wolfram zoned RT-4 for some unknown reason. The south side of the street is zoned RS-3 with many original small single family homes still present.This will be a voting issue. The immediate area will be flyered. The results of the voting will be forwarded to the Alderman’s office.
