The solution is simple, and one I urge all of you to participate in. Visit this website http://www.the350project.net/home.html and learn how you can make a difference. Pick 3. Spend 50. Save your local economy.

I love this 3/50 Project. It's similar to the spending $5 in BI posts. Is there a way to find out the Blue Island businesses/supporters of this project?

You can go here http://www.the350project.net/supporters.html and scroll down the page. I think I'm the only one listed right now, but I know the City of Blue Island signed up yesterday. It just takes a few days for the website to be updated. I'd like to see every business and resident sign up.

People say it is hard to shop in BI but if we make an effort, we can do it.

The Forum should promote this program. They should provide a website where all citizens can pledge to support our city.

The Forum should have a monthly contest for the resident who spends the most money at our local businesses. The winner should be honored as the Resident of the month.

I made a mistake. The 3/50 Project does not have a place where residents can sign up, but we can encourage residents to mention it to business owners, who can then sign up the businesses.
Eddie, the Forum did print an article about it, but it went largely unnoticed.

We need new people, new ideas, to turn the Blue Island central business district around. The current formula being used has failed. Currently those in power, are just putting in their time, building up their pensions and can't wait to turn the problems they created over to someone else.

Fresh thoughts is balls on accurate it was the same 4 yrs ago. the people of this town are blind. to bad they are not color blind because we could be talking about moving forward rather than the failed past.

I KNOW SOME OF THE BUSINESS LEFT DUE TO HIGH RENT. CAN YOU IMAGINE 1800.00 PLUS UTILITIES. I GUESS THE OWNERS LIKE THIER EMPTY BUILDINGS. It is best to focus on the positive move forward IGNORE THE NEGATIVE ITS LIKE DOG MESS STINKS AWHILE DRIES UP AND GOES AWAY

How to train a hater: 1) Post a comment-anything is fine. 2) Haters will be notified by e-mail or other methods of a response being posted. 3) Haters will immediately run to their computers; night or day. 4) Haters will immediately respond with a negative post. Priceless.

BLUE ISLAND HAS COME TO A GRINDING HAULT WITH THINGS NOT MOVING FORWARD!

The high rents are not entirely the fault of the building owners. Property tax on commercial buildings has skyrocketed in recent years. Rents must be high for the building owners to meet their property taxes. This is the fault of the county. High rents and empty buildings is a county-wide problem.

What you see, is what you get. This is a twenty four year vision of what the Peloquin------- administration has brought to us. What are your complaints? Please deposit all complaints in the ballot box come election day !!!!
