The Winnetka Village Council rejected a plan to increase affordable housing in the affluent North Shore community by a vote of 4-3 Tuesday. The suburban Chicago village had been looking into the idea of expanding the amount of affordable housing available since 2005, but trustees who voted down the measure pointed to the results of a Winnetka Caucus survey which found 67 percent of village residents opposed more affordable housing near them, according to TribLocal. The plan, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, would have instituted affordability standards, local preference standards and an inclusionary zoning ordinance requiring that 15 percent of units in new multi-family developments be affordable.
