The Winnetka Village Council is expected to vote June 5 on whether or not to designate five proposed buildings as village landmarks.
Winnetka’s Landmark Preservation Commission is recommending four commercial buildings and one residence be designated a village landmark. All feature the Tudor Revival style of architecture with steeply pitched roofs, half-timbered gables, and brick and stucco exteriors. The owners of the building apply for the designation and the commission reviews the request and the building’s history and condition, so as to advise the Village Council whether the request should be granted.
