Kroehler Mansion demolition denied by HPC

On October 24, the Naperville Historic Preservation Commission voted 7-0 to deny the Certificate of Appropriateness application from Little Friends, Inc. to demolish their entire campus, including the Kroehler Mansion.

Consensus amongst the Commissioners was unanimous that historical significance outweighs the repair cost for the Kroehler Mansion. Demolition of the Krejci Academy, Gymnasium, and Administration buildings was approved by the HPC.

Little Friends is appealing this decision to the Naperville City Council. It may be heard by Council as soon as Tuesday, November 19.
