Don't forget McCook Family Restaurant on Joliet Rd. That might just be the best of the bunch! Not fancy, but really good food!

These TIF's hurt the local schools, who in turn have to raise their share of tax assessments, and homeowners then end up paying for these developments, which obviously encourage rich developers, who will profit even more. Vicious cycle.

Often no or few parking spaces are available on Grand Boulevard, especially on the weekends. If all these extra residences and mixed-use buildings come in, where are people going to park to frequent businesses to keep the businesses open and bring in tax revenue?

Stop it, board members! Just stop. It's bad enough that restaurants have to charge an extra 1% sales tax now. You're killing business.

Buy mine at Sam's in Hodgkins for the last 2 years. Have a station 6 blocks away. 30 cents cheaper.

If it does not have parking I agree with Fred. The one that is located at North Riverside has no parking and parents and staff park on the sidewalk blocking foot and bike traffic. Remember this is near Ames school and Veterans park so foot traffic/bike traffic is expected. When it snows it means people having to walk on the avenue to get through.

Lou treated the Maplewood Road families to a spectacular evening at the Zoo over the holidays for several years. Not only were we able to see the animals using trolley cars but had ice sculptors, entertainment and dinner. Everyone loved it. What a great man and neighbor to us!
