[ARCHIVED] Affordable Housing Review Schedule

On January 19, 2023, the Village's Plan Commission held the first of three meetings to study and develop affordable housing policy recommendations as requested by the Village Board. While Skokie’s percentage of affordable housing is at approximately 19 percent, nearly double the state’s mandated 10 percent threshold, the influx of new residential and mixed-use development has prompted discussions about the future of affordable housing in the Village. 

The January 19, 2023 Listen and Learn Session about affordable housing featured speakers who develop and work towards the preservation and creation of new affordable housing development.
See a video of the January 19 meeting. (Note: affordable housing presentations begin at approximately the 16:35 mark.)

The Plan Commission will hold two additional meetings as part of the process to make recommendations regarding affordable housing policies to the Village Board at their March 20, 2023 meeting. Public attendance at the meetings is encouraged. The meetings also will be broadcast live and available for future viewing on the Village’s YouTube channel.  

  • Public Hearing #1 (Thursday, February 2, 2023, 7:30 p.m.). The Plan Commission will start to formulate affordable housing policy recommendations to the Board of Trustees and establish a subcommittee to draft recommendations from the Plan Commission for review at the Plan Commission’s Public Hearing Session #2.  Meeting materials will be posted on the Plan Commission’s meeting page on Thursday, January 26, 2023.
  • Public Hearing #2 (Thursday, March 2, 2023, 7:30 p.m.). Plan Commission will finalize and vote on a recommendation prepared by the subcommittee regarding the affordable housing policy recommendations to the Board of Trustees.  Meeting materials (including the drafted policy recommendation from the subcommittee) will be posted on the Plan Commission’s meeting page on Thursday, February 23, 2023.
  • Village Board Meeting (Monday, March 20, 2023, 7:30 p.m.).  Policy recommendations from the Plan Commission on the Village’s Affordable Housing strategy will be presented by Plan Commission Chair Paul Luke and discussed at the Board meeting.
