Review Period Closes on Friday, December 12, 2014
The City of West Chicago would like its residents to know about two grant applications the City has prepared to submit to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These draft EPA grants are available below, and will be available for review and comment until December 12, 2014. Hard copies of the draft applications are also available at the City Hall (Dept. of Community Development). The City requests feedback from the general public about the draft grant applications.
The City will submit the grant applications to the EPA in an effort to receive additional funds to help its environmental cleanup efforts for the approximately 8 1/2-acre site north of West Washington Street and west of Fremont Street. The City expects to complete necessary cleanup of this area as part of the redevelopment process for this large, visible and important area of the downtown. Long term plans include a new municipal facility consisting of a city hall, a new ‘town square’ or ‘village green’ outdoor space, residential development, commercial/retail development and new parking.
A public informational meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, December 4, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. to review these applications. Any interested residents, business officials or other parties are welcome to attend that meeting.
Comments on the draft EPA environmental cleanup applications can be submitted via email to: email@example.com or in writing to:John D. Said, AICP Director, Dept. of Community Development City of West Chicago 475 Main Street West Chicago, Illinois 60185
The City looks forward to receiving public comments on these applications.
