ENVIR, to develop or not to develop [W]
Suburban Life (Erick Bieritz):
Two legal battles to decide the future of development in southwest Westchester could roll into next year or even be joined by a third lawsuit.
For three years Palos Heights-based Greene Development Group has been locked in a court battle with the Save the Prairie Society, which opposes housing developments near the Wolf Road Prairie and has said they could damage the area's rare ecosystem. Local leaders including former Village President John Sinde have endorsed the development for the new tax dollars and senior housing stock it could provide, but the prairie society has thus far successfully stopped the development on court appeals.
