As you know the Stateville land between Renwick and Division, and between Weber and 53 was given to the forest preserve district.

A chunk of it is now Brent Hasert Park and the fire department is putting a new station on Renwick. I *think* on the site where the farm house burned down a few years ago but as of today the garage is still standing.

On city council meetings they talk about who is paying for the Gas City site plan mixed in with the Fire Department, as if they are the same plan?

Do any of you know where this Gas City might be built or would a Gas City put in pumps just for the fire department?

I am thinking it is only for the fire department. It would make no sense to build a gas station in the middle of Renwick, across from street from an airport and in the middle of Forest Preserve land.

The minutes mention the following: "Gas City has signed an agreement to put up a gas
station with a restaurant and car wash. Alderman Soliman said that this facility is going
to be the main office for the Fire Department."

I don't understand what that means...

Then I found plenty references to a Gas City going in on the South East corner of Rt 30 and Renwick Rd, which is Plainfield.

I don't understand either. So, I just called city hall and the Mayor was busy so I was transferred to the building deptartmart. The lady I talked to said nothing is final with Gas City yet. She said the fire department will be built where the house burned down a few years ago and if Gas City is built it will be next door and west of that.

It makes no sense financially to build a gas station in the middle of forest preserve land. And across the street from an airport where student pilots train. I mentioned that and she said planes don't fly that way. I said you forgot that Lewis built a north/south runway long enough for private jets. She said no they didn't they are thinking of it. I thanked her and ended the call. Our Building Department is soooo well informed. LOL

I recall there was a problem with a gas station owner next to the Joliet Municipal Airport. He got all the permits to build the gas station and after it was done they claimed he built in violation of a zoning law that states a gas station can't be that close to a runway. I never heard what came of that. Last I recall he was figting it pretty hard because the city of Joliet gave him the permits to build where they later said he wasn't supposed to build.

A gas station can be built at the end of a runway, if Mayor Churnovic wants it to be. Heck with how he and his Building Commissioner interpret and twist the codes, a gas station could be built on a runway, on public property, on a firing range, or underwater (assuming they could afford water).
