Abstract

It has been argued that Illinois land use law gives municipalities within the State of Illinois broad discretion in making land use decisions. This being the case, the question becomes whether such latitude actually results in inequitable treatment of landowners across the state. To answer this question, recent annexation agreements from a sample of six Chicago area municipalities were examined to determine the concessions and restrictions different municipalities place on parcels of land being annexed into their communities. While some interesting patterns and relationships existed among the agreements from the sample communities, time analysis showed that the annexation agreements were remarkably similar amid revealed evidence of neither extraordinarily restrictive nor overly accommodating treatment of annexing landowners.
