DEV, pushback on new condos [BF]

Riverside/Brookfield Landmark (Bob Uphues):
A Brookfield resident, who describes himself as apolitical but outraged over the approval of a condominium development for the 3600 block of Forest Avenue, has begun a petition drive to try to force the village to reconsider its decision. Meanwhile, the VIP Party looks to be trying to use the issue as a wedge between voters and the PEP Party in the spring 2007 elections. The PEP party currently holds a majority on the village's Board of Trustees.

Within the past two weeks, Michael Fressola, who owns and lives in an apartment building to the north of a planned 18-unit condo development, has passed out scores of petition fliers asking for an "investigation into Brookfield politics."
