PETITION TO DENY HARTZ REQUEST FOR RE-ZONING LOTS
Hartz is requesting that the Village of New Lenox re-zone the leftover 19 lots down Peregrine Dr. – Cardinal, etc to a lower minimum dwelling size. They want the village to grant a variance just for these lots to have the minimum square footage dropped. The current sq ft requirements are 1800 for a ranch and 2000 for a two story. Hartz is trying to get away with building homes smaller than the city’s required minimum. This will decrease our home values even more than they've already dropped from the bad economy. Rules are rules and these size requirements were set for a reason - to set a standard of building, a standard of living, and to maintain property values within the Village of New Lenox. As residents and tax payers of New Lenox, we need to take control over our home's value. Hartz just wants to get out of the Laraway Ridge Subdivision the fast and easy way and increase their bottom line without any consideration to the homeowners. Would you have signed your name on the contract if you knew this would happen? Will this cause a bad chain reaction? The other builders in the area are sure to follow suit. The Village of New Lenox will surely lose its integrity if this gets passed.
Please support this PETITION TO DENY HARTZ REQUEST FOR REZONING LOTS by either signing and/or joining us at the Village of New Lenox meeting. Your presence will definitely be noticed.
