Board Meeting Recap – March 5, 2013

Hello All,

With upwards of 10″s of snow, the weather did not cooperate with the most recent village board meeting.  As a result, our only presentation on the agenda, by the mountain biking group CAMBr, was postponed.  Mike Angus was slated to give us an update on the Raceway Woods mountain bike trail enhancement, which his group has developed as a 100% volunteer project.

Besides that, we had some great news coming from the consent agenda.  The new owners of the Shell station that has opened where the Dominicks gas station used to be along Randall Road received a special use permit in order to build a car wash in the facility.  Hopefully this is just a first step in a total revitalization of the Dominicks shopping plaza.  We, as village officials, need to continue to pursue a new and highly desirable anchor store.

Also approved is further work on the desperately needed Maple Avenue improvement project and the intersection of Huntley & Rt. 31.  The Maple Avenue project is finally moving along nicely.  Residents should begin seeing reconstruction this summer.

Also of note was an important executive session.  Of course I can’t delve into details until the minutes become public at a later date, but suffice it to say that it was a productive meeting.  I am pleased with the progress made during the session.

Have a great weekend.
