It was in the Herald News that New Lenox is going to be getting many, yes many, new businesses located in their town. They are not named but soon will be as they have been approved. It is not one but many. They are also getting a new restaurant of quality. LOCKPORT NEEDS THIS KIND OF DEVELOPMENT. WE NEED STEVE STREIT. ENOUGH WITH THE EXCUSES...ELECT STEVE AND WE WILL SEE PROGRESS LIKE OUR SURROUNDING TOWNS.

tHERE ARE ALSO SOME SMALL BOX STORES WEST OF WALMART. There is amulti tenant building that is close to us 30. It would also include five to seven businesses including food, offices and services. A national food chain is expected also. The intent is to have these businesses open by the holidays.

WELL, WELL....WHAT DO WE HAVE....NO STORES, NOTHING. GOT AN ANSWER TO THAT. I DO. WE NEED STEVE STREIT THE PRO DEVELOPMENT CANDIDATE! WE ALSO NEED THE COUNCIL MEN THAT ARE RUNNING FOR THE RIGHT REASONS. COME ON...LOCKPORT...LET'S GET IN ON THE DEVELOPMENT. WE ARE SO BEHIND. THE TITLE OF THE ARTICLE WHICH WAS IN THE HERALD NEWS March 27th ON P.15 IS new lenox lining up businesses......need we say more????

New Lenox, Romeoville, Bolingbrook, even Crest Hill have development like crazy. Lockport is getting passed by all of these towns and it is not good.

WJOL had a crest hill mayoral debate on this morning (wish Turner would have done this instead of insisting on his sham structure) and the biggest complaint is that they have a few million in unfunded infrastructure repairs to handle. And they were able to talk about plenty of development!

What nice problems to have. If you add our unfunded infrastructure as quoted by Robinson I think it's over $100M.

The problem is leadership and the community as well. I believe Lockport as a community cannot economically sustain the types of business you keep saying we need. Retailers and commercial interests do demographic and economic studies and I can't imagine the data saying "build, these people will open their wallets and support you." people here just like to complain and keep doing things the same way as before.
