nicer houses in Lisle than Naperville in my opinion, but the price is steep..

The house on Karns Road is adjacent of commercially zoned property. Just about anything could show up on that property on Odgen - a oil change depot, bus terminal, a RV/boat storage lot, low income multifamily housings, a hookah bar ... In fact I think there was already a proposal for low income senior housing on the adjacent property. These are not comparable properties.

Lisle zoning codes and the Village's random enforcement/lack of enforcement is killing residential property values. When Village staff will one day say a gas station can't go next to residential and another day say 172,000 gallons of diesel fuel storage and diesel engine testing is fine as long as it complies with the EPA, things will only get worse. There is too much uncertainty in Lisle to make the investment in a house. Just as easy to buy in Naperville. Prices of Lisle homes will continue to fall until the issue is resolved. A change of leadership would be a great start.

Too much uncertainty to invest in a business in Lisle, too. Just look at what the Village did to all those downtown business owners by imposing new restrictions just a few years ago on who they can and cannot rent out their property to. They purchased their property expecting one set of rules and the Village changes the rules and now they are stuck with vacant properties. As long as Broda is Mayor, there is way too much uncertainty in Lisle to invest in any property. Add to that Lisle's increasing property tax levy and decreasing sale tax revenue... Broda has lead Lisle on a downward spiral.
