^ Don't need to tell me, I've lived in Pilsen for almost ten years now.

I don't think there's an increased risk of code enforcement, though. If the oldtimers can get away without pulling permits for a new roof or porch now, they can continue to get away with it after the landmark district. The city isn't gonna perform more roving inspections.

More common, though, is for a contractor to get a quick repair/replace permit approved same day (the contractor often exceeds the scope of work that is allowed for such permits). I don't think that Easy Permit process is available to properties in a landmark district - everything needs to have a plan review by Landmarks staff at the very least.
