Long Grove Summer Update and More!
I hope all of you are having a good summer and are settling into this heat wave! If you're not already subscribed to the Village of Long Grove newsletter, please subscribe on their website. We are not officially affiliated with the Village, but their newsletters have been improved many times this year and we support their efforts in more transparency and better updates on what the Board is voting on. I know we have a few on our list that do not subscribe.
The Hot Topics for residents in the most recent issue:
1. The latest news on the Old McHenry project coming to an end, as well as the new Robert Parker Coffin project (and the bridge work) which starts this week after the 4th of July.
2. The demolition of 2 buildings on the "Red Oaks" Property.
3. A victory by the residents to stop the development of a car wash. This was a huge victory for the local residents and we applaud the board for listening to residents concerns regarding traffic and other nuisances that would have been created by this business. While we support business in Long Grove, we also have to make careful decisions on where new businesses are permitted.
I have addressed several issues from some of you on our list over the last few months. As always, if you are having issues getting thru to the village, please email me and I will help facilitate a response.
