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."
