The Village of Fox River Grove has allowed a bike race that denies access to many of our homes on one Sunday each year. Last year it was on Father’s Day. The ordinance for having a block party requires signatures from all homeowners affected. Have you been approached as to the closing of our streets? These races are not riding for a charity, but a bike club who likes our hilly roads. The Flyers stated the race started at 10:00 am, and was over at 4:00 pm. When we left for church at 9:15 am, we had to take down two sets of road blocks. When we tried to return home, we were told it would be another 40 minutes.
We talked too many of the affected residents who are saying that our rights as homeowners are being ignored. We are not saying we don’t like bike races, we just feel that as residents we should not be denied access to our homes without our permission.
On August 3rd we’d like to meet at 7:00 pm at the Village Hall Public/Health and Safety meeting to let our elected officials hear from us.
