Downers Grove swallows up 430 homes

Apparently not everyone who will be living in Downers Grove chose to live there.

According to a recent Trib Local report the Village of Downers Grove has annexed more than 400 homes in an unincorporated area adjacent to it.

Not all of the residents who will become part of Downers Grove are thrilled with the idea – primarily because it will result in an increase in their property tax bills.

If your preferences run toward living in one of the area's many unincorporated enclaves, you might want to investigate whether any of the adjacent areas are casting tax-hungry eyes on the neighborhood.
