I live in the village of Northbrook,Il. A parcel of land directly behind our house is owned be the village. The parcel was previously covered with hundreds of trees. the trees were up to forty to fifty foot tall. The village had chosen this site to build a water retention pond to hold 1.5 million gal. of water. 100' wide by 600' long. Just behind this parcel is land owned by commonwealth edison which have tall towers with high tension lines. Now that the trees have been removed, which were a visual buffer we now see 36 different lines of transmission. one week after the trees were removed Zillow dropped the value of a property by 175K, From $825,000 to $650,000. We had our house up for sale before this happened, but since the trees were taken down, we have not had a single showing. Do we have a recourse against the Village, Bob Roberts,410 Barnsley Pl.
