A group of concerned citizens has scheduled a tentative meeting with Ald. Shiller to discuss their opposition to the proposed rezoning of 4627 North Beacon. A paper petition, along with an online version, is being circulated for signatures. The online petition reads:
In response to notification of a request by developer Chris Byrne on April 15th, 2008 to rezone the parcel at 4627 N. Beacon Street to R4 status, we have signed this petition against rezoning. At a meeting in 2005, Alderman Shiller indicated she would not agree to rezone the property at that time unless the residents in the area were in a majority of agreement with his request. We still stand against any change to the zoning status of 4627 N. Beacon Street.
