5/23/13 Second District Appellate Court Hearing – Oral Arguments

Thursday morning, May 23rd,  the IL 2nd District Appellate Court invited attorneys representing Kerry Friedman and those representing the City of Lake Forest and the 27W homeowners (the Bhalala’s) to deliver oral arguments regarding our complaint filed December 2, 2011 where we sought a Temporary Restraining Order and Stop-Work Order for the 27W Onwentsia development.    If you would like to read what the Judges had to review, click through the following link
It will give you an idea of just how many different ways this hearing could have gone.
Also, if you wondered how the experimental engineering project featuring “Smart Vents” handled the big rains of April 17-18th.  Here are a couple pictures for you. The first one shows our east side yard flooding as a direct result of their project.  The second one shows the two front retention ponds – even the driveway itself was flooded.  The third picture shows how full the ponds got.  The last picture is just as described during the BRB appeal to the City Council September 6, 2011 “like a castle with a mote”.

About Onwentsia Memorandum

I am a long time LF homeowner who has been witnessing an expansion of standing water each year getting deeper and wider. Each Spring, the next generation of ducks appear to raise their ducklings. But this year is different. Their habitat has been altered.
