Front Yard Ham Radio Antenna Battle

Gregg Salomone N9NY wants to put up a 26-foot ham radio antenna in his Northbrook, IL, USA front yard if all his neighbors say they are OK with it, which he thinks they are. Some Northbrook officials say they'd like to accommodate him, in that case, as long as everybody in the village didn't, therefore, get the right, along with him, to do it.
While it would be perfectly legal in Salomone's backyard, should the front yard have another set of rules entirely? He has too tiny of a backyard for the spider-like underground cable supporting the antenna to fit.
