Lewis Road Property Sale For Affordable Housing

Posted on July 15, 2020 at 10:51 AM by Kevin Stahr

During a special meeting July 13, 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 meeting is available to watch on the City's YouTube channel.

Prior to the meeting, some Geneva residents have had questions regarding the Lewis Road property and a proposal to construct affordable housing. To help provide more clarity on the matter, the City has published a fact sheet answering the most common questions posed to the City on the matter.

The Illinois Housing Development Authority also sent correspondence to the City May 14 regarding the agency receiving an application for financing.

For more information, people can call the City's Community Development Department at 630-232-0818.
