  • The client's vision was to retain the original homestead, preserve the oak woodlands and maintain the rural character of the site.
  • A variation from the village was required to allow two homes on one lot.
  • A filled wetland under “Corps” jurisdiction was remediated and a degraded wetland was enhanced through permits obtained from both Lake County SMC and the Army Corps of Engineers.
  • Access to Riverwoods Road was not permitted by county ordinance, since access to a village street (North Hampton Lane) was available. At the Village’s and neighbor’s request, a variation to the LCDOT access ordinance was obtained to access the subdivision from Riverwoods Road.
