Lewis Road Property Sale & Proposed Affordable Housing Development

Posted on February 12, 2021 at 11:00 AM by Kevin Stahr

The Burton Foundation has submitted a development application seeking to construct 45 affordable rental townhome units. The City's Planning & Zoning Commission conducted a public hearing Jan. 14 and 28. The commission deliberated Feb. 11 and voted 6-1 to recommend conditional approval of the project requests. The recommendation now heads to the City Council for consideration at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22. More details about the application, meeting videos and public comments have been posted to the City's website.

To help provide more clarity on the matter, the City also has published a fact sheet answering the most common questions posed to the City on the matter.

During a special meeting July 13, 2020 the Geneva City Council approved a resolution authorizing the City Administrator to execute a real estate purchase agreement regarding the sale of publicly-owned surplus property on Lewis Road to The Burton Foundation.

The July 13 meeting is available to watch on the City's YouTube channel.
