Developer Files Lawsuit Against Village Over Catherine Alice Gardens Proposal

The developer of the proposed Catherine Alice Gardens, a supportive housing project meant for people with disabilities, has filed a lawsuit against the village of Palatine after the village council rejected its rezoning request in August, according to the Daily Herald. 

The Palatine Village Council voted 4-2 against the zoning change for Catherine Alice Gardens, which would have been located at 345 N. Eric Drive in a former warehouse property, as trustees hoped a new manufacturer would move into the location at some point, according to the Daily Herald. 

The Chicago Tribune reports this is the fourth supportive housing project proposed in the northwest suburbs by the same developer and "the third to land in court." 

The lawsuit filed by Chicago-based Up Development in the Cook County Circuit Court will end negotiations between the developer and the village while the suit requests a declaratory judgement on the village's decision, according to the Chicago Tribune.
