Development Proposal

for 1952 W. Morse

1952 W. Morse Survey Results & Updates


Thank you for taking the time to engage with our office by attending the community meeting last month and providing feedback on the proposal for 1952 W. Morse.


Our office received 78 responses to the online survey, with 56.5% of respondents supporting the proposal in its current iteration. As reflected in the infographic, the lack of density, lack of affordable units, and the building's design were the biggest concerns 49th Ward residents have about the proposal. Others, however, expressed strong support for additional single-family homes in the neighborhood. 


Our office shared the feedback and input with the developer to see how it can be incorporated into the proposal. We will keep the community apprised of any proposed changes from the developer and continue to solicit feedback and host community meetings. The first meeting was only the first step in creating a long-term plan for the site. 


Stay tuned for further updates and the next steps. Please don't hesitate to contact us directly with questions at or

The 49th Ward office will host a virtual community meeting for a development proposal at 1952 W. Morse on Tuesday, March 9, at 6 pm.

The property owner, Ilya Pisarenko, is seeking a zoning change from RS-2 to RS-3. The proposal is to tear down the existing 3 unit building and a coach house that currently occupies the lot. The coach house burned down in 2019 and is not in a habitable condition. 

The owner would like to build two new single-family homes on the lot, each coming in at 30-feet tall. There would be shared green space between the two homes. Each home would also have its own garage. 

Sign up in advance to attend the community meeting at Spanish translation will be available.
