Wilmette Housing Commission recommends adoption of innovative development criteria

In January, the Housing Commission of Wilmette will recommend to its Village Board adoption of the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus' Housing Endorsement Criteria.

In January, the Housing Commission of Wilmette will recommend to its Village Board adoption of the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus' Housing Endorsement Criteria. Riverdale, Arlington Heights and Round Lake Park have already adopted the criteria, which promote housing and mixed-use developments to meet community needs.  The criteria support new housing and redevelopment that promote economic development and sustainability and encourage an array of quality housing options, the use of public transit and sensible growth.  Earlier this year, Dave Bennett of the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus called the passage of the criteria by the region's mayors, "a victory for local governments and their residents." Bennett added that the criteria allow municipalities to "take more control over the development process and the types of housing welcomed into communities."
