Several proposed changes to the village zoning code that would regulate many of the structures found in the yards of residents—including patios, trellises, outdoor kitchens, and even portable storage units—were discussed Monday night by the La Grange board of trustees.
The changes also would allow larger real estate signs and require a minimum view clearance for driveways entrances and corner lots.
No vote was taken on the changes, which were proposed by the village plan commission following public hearings conducted last October and November.
Instead the board decided to table any action until its next regular meeting, scheduled for February.
Some trustees said the postponement also will allow them additional time to study proposed changes, and to seek input from residents, as well as local builders and other professionals.
Check back later for more details of the board's discussion.
