Developer withdraws Calumet Country Club disconnect lawsuit after matter becomes moot

April 23, 2021 - 15:34

W&E Ventures formally withdrew the lawsuit seeking the disconnection of the Calumet Country Club property from the village of Homewood on Friday, ending one chapter of the effort to redevelop the land as a fulfillment center.

The motion to withdraw the suit was granted by Cook County Circuit Court Judge Maureen Ward Kirby, but the disconnection of the property was made official on April 13 when the Homewood Board of Trustees approved a disconnection ordinance.

Having lived in Homewood for over 50 years, I have been thankful that competent persons have stepped up to serve our Village Board, School Boards, Park District, Library, and other such positions. There has been consistent quality of life because of their commitment, and the will of the residents. They have done this work well, and for the right reasons, benefitting us all, and our property values. 

Breaking news: Homewood trustees vote to disconnect Calumet Country Club

Calumet Country Club will no longer be part of Homewood after the Board of Trustees approved an ordinance Tuesday to disconnect the property from the village.

The move was required by a settlement agreement the village entered into with the property owner in January. Disconnection was sought by the previous owner of the property, CCC Investors LLC, and subsequently by the current owner, Diversified Partners, because the village refused to approve an industrial use for the land.

The process of considering rezoning requests for the Calumet Country Club redevelopment project was one for the history books.

Homewood Mayor Richard Hofeld, who has been involved in village government since the mid-1970s, said the community response to the proposed redevelopment of the country club in February and March was more intense than anything he can remember.
