Winnetka's affordable housing plan divides village
Over the past several decades, Winnetka has become less diverse in age and income, and it contains a more transient population, according to the plan. The report states that Winnetka lost much of its housing market diversity with the demolition of older, smaller homes that were replaced with larger, more expensive houses. Between 1980 and 2000, the village also lost 262 rental units — a 38 percent reduction — due to the conversion of downtown apartments into commercial offices. Between 1990 and 2000, the number of homes valued at less than $500,000 declined to 975 from 2,004, according to the report. "Winnetka's housing stock increasingly serves only one kind of resident — a family at the peak of its earning years and with school-age children," the report states.
