The Board of Aldermen July 9 voted to let a petitioner build a new single-family house on Crystal Lake that will exceed the allotted Floor Area Ratio for the neighborhood, Wicked Local reports.

“I spent some time talking to the aldermen of the area. I walked the area, and I know people who live in the area,” alderman Marcia Johnson said. “I think it’s too big for what sits there today and I uphold the FAR we adopted unanimously.”

And yet the board approved the petition in a 17-7.   Patch has more here.
