Christ the Lord church proposes taking down home, trees

Feb. 14, 2012

Christ the Lord Evangelical Lutheran Church is planning several improvements to its site at 1640 N. Brookfield Road.

The Plan Commission on Monday agreed to schedule a public hearing about the church's plan to demolish a house on the eastern portion of the property and move its school playground there, replace the existing playground with a parking lot and change the landscaping.

The church wants to take down 16 large spruce trees in order to open the view to the site. Church officials said they do not want to replace the trees.

Planning Administrator Michael Theis said replacement of the trees will need to be discussed further and plans reconciled prior to scheduling a public hearing.

A neighborhood meeting and public hearing will be scheduled, likely within the next two months.
