Edgewater: What to expect

by

Last night the Common Council unanimously agreed to postpone a second vote on the Edgewater renovation project. To clarify, after the Council upheld the decision of the City Landmark’s Commission to deny the project a “certificate of appropriateness,” some alders who had been absent during the vote pushed for a second consideration of the project, and scheduled it to take place last night.

According to Ald. Bryon Eagon, the postponement was decided upon in order to give the Urban Design Committee and the Plan Committee more time to hammer out details and propose changes to the developers. Eagon emphasized that while he believed the 12 alders who voted to overturn the Landmarks Commission’s rejection of the plan would remain united in favor of the $100 million renovation, there is hope that more negotiations can win the developers even more support in the Council.
