Illinois Supreme Court Grants PLA in School District Zoning Case (the Bleacher Case)

We have posted before about the case filed by neighboring properties owners against a school district for installing bleachers without obtaining the required zoning approvals.  Gurba v. Community HS Dist. 155.  You can read about the circuit court opinion here and the appellate court opinion here

You may recall that both courts held in favor of the neighbors and the City, finding that the school district was subject to local zoning.  The school district filed a petition for leave to appeal the lower court's rulings to the Illinois Supreme Court.  Today, the Court granted the petition for leave to appeal, meaning that it will hear the school district's appeal.  

In case you have forgotten what the bleachers look like from neighboring properties, here's another picture:

We will certainly keep you posted on this case.
