Meeting roundup

Hinsdale Village Board

Among other business at their July 16 meeting, trustees:

• learned that Ryan Companies has agreed to temporarily suspend its request to build a senior living development at the corner of Ogden Avenue and Adams Street with the hope that residents soon will be able to attend meetings of the plan commission and village board in person. In the interim, the company is holding six 30-minute informational sessions for residents from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4, at The Community House. Register online at

• agreed to a change order for Phase 1 of the $1 million 2020 water main project. Construction has focused on water main installation from the water plant on Symonds Drive west to Garfield Avenue. The project requires crews to dig under the railroad tracks, and in addition to using an auger, some large rocks had to be removed by hand at an additional cost of $62,000. Savings in other areas offset that increase, resulting in a net expenditure of $17,750. Trustees plan to take an official vote at their next meeting Aug. 11.

• listened to Matt Bousquette’s request to waive the certificate of appropriateness application requirement to demolish the R. Harold Zook-designed home he owns at 444 E. Fourth St. He went through the process in 2017 but did not apply for a demolition permit within the required one year period. He said he plans to use the land as a side yard for his home in the adjacent lot at 448 E. Fourth St. Trustees signaled they would vote in support of his request at their Aug. 11 meeting.
