Message From the Mayor
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
November has arrived and fall is upon us. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I sincerely welcome the opportunity to wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy Holiday Season. We at the village are establishing final plans for our own holiday celebration. We hope you will join us at the Second Annual Winter Wonderland Tree Decorating and Village Tree Lighting Event being held on Friday, December 4, 2015 at 6:00 PM.
On Thursday, November 5th, at 7:00 PM an old fashioned Town Hall Meeting is scheduled at the Village Hall, 7800 Archer Road in Justice. Come out and experience the opportunity to meet with your elected officials in an informal setting, in order to share your comments, concerns and ideas, and to hear more about upcoming plans and projects in the works.
Bids were accepted on October 19th and as of this writing, are under review for demolition of the structures at the triangle property across from the Damar-Kaminski Funeral Home. At long last the old diner, cedar-home and run-down apartment building will be cleared away to make way for a commercial development. A developer is waiting in the wings to finalize plans for the parcel once it is cleared and completely under the village's control. Acquiring the property has been a long and arduous process. It will be exciting to follow the progress of an ambitious and highly visible commercial development.
Engineering for the (IL Jobs Now Grant Project) is fully approved by IDOT. The letting is occuring at the tail end of October, insuring an early spring start date. We expect a November letting of the Frontage Road Project. 2016 promises to be a very productive year.
I am always available for your questions, comments and suggestions, so stop in and say hello. I am in my office and available most mornings.
Hope to see you at the Town Hall meeting!
