From The Chicago Tribune: An Orthodox Jewish school and the city of Evanston, Ill., have been fighting in court for two years over land it bought in the hope of expanding. The city has rejected requests to change the zoning from industrial, so the site sits vacant. The zoning in that area does not allow schools — either religious or secular. But a church was given permission to build next door. Officials at Joan Dachs Bais Yaakov Elementary can't understand how their plan for a boys school isn't preferable to letting the property stagnate. The current boys school, which is in Chicago, a couple of miles south of the Evanston site, is overcrowded with 280 students.
