West End Pump Station Timeline

The City has blocked an appeal from West End residents opposing the City’s unlawful allowance of a Municipal Use Exemption to construct a water utility pump station in an Open Space District to service water sales to Morton Grove and Niles.

Just three weeks prior to the proposed utility’s introduction, the City had leased the 2525 Church St. property to restore the property to greenspace. The restoration—which included the demolition of the lot’s abandoned structure and expansion into the adjacent Beck Park—had been approved through the 2017 Budget for $400,000, with an additional $1.9M proposed for 2018.
