A majority of residents did not want a park with the YMCA ! Trustee Guy Zambetti seems to have much more invested with the YMCA than meets the eye. He has ingnored multiple disapproval's at previous board meetings involving heavy traffic congestion, taxes from repair/ maintenance work, and child safety from traffic. Ironically all board meetings for this month have been canceled. This is an attempt to ignore all the comments from the local residents. He originally stated that this was for the gilberts children. That is false, I see a huge majority of elgin ymca members using our fields as their playing grounds. This field is in our backyard. We have had soccer balls hit our home, followed by teens trying to climb our fence in order to retrieve their gear. What happens if a ball hits one of my children ? What happens if it damages my property ? Is the village ready to handle a court lawsuit in such an event ? Children and parents alike walking along the foothills looking into our home and backyard. There is a football field goal post literally a 100ft from Tyrell, which is a Kane County Road. What happens when a stray football hits a moving vehicle ? Will the village or the YMCA pay for damages ? I doubt it will be the YMCA. I will have no qualms of selling my home and moving out of this community if this is how "legitimite" business is done between a village and a private organization that will be funded by our hard earned tax dollars.
