I just thought it was a great idea, besides the revenue it would bring in.

The Mayor and the Council Members that voted down the "Flea Market" made the right call for the City.

The long term negative reaction the "Flea Market" would have on the City out weigh any revenue it would bring in.

Tradesmen, Landscaping companies and the like can be easily found in the Yellow Pages or the internet.
This was going to be a Flea Market under any name.

Be happy you are not Plainfield. They lost a car dealer and got a flea market which they call economic development. They really lowered the bar.

Come on, did you really want a flea market in town? Do you truly believe the City would receive any benefit other that business licenses from this eventual cess pool? The building owner and his lawyer gave the future vendors too much control and the City would've struggled to control it. Too many resources used up on this bad use for a bad location.

Thats exactly what you would have there, just all in one place. You can get a hair cut there and buy used automotive tools and parts. That would have been something. How can you control what they would be selling?? In the summer it could have moved out into the parking lot and we really could have vendors selling things outside. Lets move on.

Crest Hill is a very high class town. Besides Joliet, Bolingbrook, Asip, Chicago and hundreds of other towns in IL, who else has a flea market. The nerve of that owner to request a flea market in our classy backwater burg!

I also heard that the 11th liquor license was handed out that night. Maybe the owner can start up a gentelmen's club or an adult book store. Can I make a suggestion for a name? Gewey Dewey's Adult Book Store.
