Joliet residents to avoid New Lenox IL due to poor city management. will county watcher

Apr 11, 2007 | Posted by: Violent Dave | Full story: willcountywatcher.wordpress.com

In Newlenox IL, businesses might a well - close shop now, when customers can not get to and from your business and when it becomes a hassle for customers to get in and out of parking lots people stop coming.
Wal-mart belongs by I-355.
In New Lenox IL, businesses might a well - close shop now, when customers can not get to and from your business and when it becomes a hassle for customers to get in and out of parking lots people stop coming. Look, you’re not going to get new customers taking I-355 to come into the center of New Lenox township, Personally if I have to travel I-80 east to I-355 then South on Cedar Rd and then having to navigate Cedar, then have a 90% chance of waiting on the train, then go route 30 to save a few bucks on what I would buy is not going to happen, after all the gas I would waste and time spent beating my car in stop and go traffic this would stop me from even going into New Lenox, plus now with the new court house in Newlenox and the court traffic soon to be happening on an overly burdened highway

Shop at your own Wal-Mart in Joliet (you have to speak two languages there). We don't want you here anyway.

Wal Mart in Joliet is plain SCARY. So is the Loius Joliet Mall. I was there once and this guy comes FLYING by me with about mall security guys chasing him. Then he jumps in this car and the security guys is trying to open the door and the purse-snatcher reaches out the window and STABS him.
Geesh!

Thanks for the deep analysis of the commercial real estate market in New Lenox. I'm suprised Wal Mart and Menards and Lowes and Target and Jewel and Berkots, and many, many others didn't check with you before deciding to invest millions of dollars in building new stores in New Lenox. Higher traffic numbers make commercial property more valauble, not less.

Many businesses fail because the traffic is so horrendous the businesses are avoided. When a village CAN do better, it SHOULD.

I hate to go to any businesses between Cedar and I80 just for that reason- it is impossible to get out! I have sat waiting for a break in traffic for over 30 minutes. It's crazy.

Let the Joliet residents stay in Joliet then. And they can keep the criminals and lowlifes there too. Nobody wants them in New Lenox anyway.

wow... a little racist are we?? Did you happen to know that there are black people in New Lenox too??? There are good and bad peole in all walks of life, every religion, every color, every age bracket. Dont make blanket statements pertaining to an entire group of people because it shows ignorance. I know many black people that I would welcome as neighbors, and then there are many whites I wouldnt live next to if you paid me. Generalizations only demean you.

Why do people think that they sound intelligent and reasonable when they make negative comments about people of different colors and who speak different languages?

Some are such "little" people that they need to ridicule others in order to make themselves feel better. Pretty sad.
