On Monday 2/5/2018, the Wheaton City council voted to not change the zoning law. In so doing, Haymarket’s zoning request to allow them to open an in-patient & out-patient substance abuse center in the Danada are is being turned down. That should end this request. Residents still need to remain vigilant.
We have memories. In 2014, after telling the Islamic Center Western Suburbs (ICWS) “NO” to their use of a house in unincorporated DuPage as a prayer center, the board suddenly changed their mind and voted yes to give ICWS the zoning change. Hopefully, that will not happen this time in Wheaton.
As long as I’m thinking about it, here is how that vote went with a note of which of these people are up for election this year.
