Not good. More apartments going in by High Point. Section 7? Celtic Apartments? Never heard of them nor can I find anything out on the internet about them. WE DO NOT NEED ANYMORE APARTMENTS. Show up at the village meeting and voice your opinions before its to late.

It is already too late for Romeoville, even if you stop the new apartments from being built. Poor performing schools, home prices dropping and the increased crime rate are the last few last nails in Romeovilles coffin. It's only going to get worse, move before your homes value plummets even more.

This property was zoned for apartments 19 YEARS ago! That means the the owner has the RIGHT to build them. And its only 46 units! That's nothing.

And its called section 8 and it is illegal for a community to try and limit there use. BTW they are being used to rent houses all over Will County right now. Stress HOUSES.

You are so clueless its not even funny. Romeoville falls in three different school districts! Home prices are actually rising in Romeoville faster than surrounding communities again. Btw home prices fell everywhere. Oh and best of all is your complete lie about the crime rate. It has been well covered in the media that Romeoville's crimerate has actually fallen.

46 units = 506 Illegal Mexican occupants, 27 Astro Vans, 35 Chevy Caprice & Monte Carlo cars, 36 old pickup trucks used for "scrapping" and 1 U-Haul truck. Good luck with that!

What a bunch of racist... X!$^&**& #$/Ä

Ooops.. guess we can't say that here. For your uneducated information that doesn't even exist in the current apartments let alone ones that are far nicer but don't let that get in the he way of your biased opinions.

According to the 2012 census, "registered" Mexicans make up almost 40% of the population of Romeoville and the number of Mexican residents is quickly increasing each year. Imagine what that population number would be if the illegal aliens were accounted for.

Less then 36% of Romeoville High School Seniors are prepared for College. That number is less then the States average. The average ACT score was a 19. An ACT score of 19 is far below the standard for any decent college.

There are more then 650 lawn and driveway sealing service fliers that were attached to my mailbox yesterday.

AYE CARUMBA!

It's not going to impact much. Too many apartments? Where? I haven't really seen them. Most everything around me are neighborhoods with single family homes.

Home prices are going up, and I'm seeing more and more 'For Sale' signs, not just foreclosure notices. This is a good thing.

As for the schools? Depends on the district and the school, really.

Anyone who considers Romeoville 'ghetto' is an idiot and has obviously never been near a real ghetto or been in a depressed neighborhood before. All I see around me are new retail stores and contractors continuing to build. Not to mention street expansion projects to enable larger stores (i.e. Meijer) to move in. New libraries, new parks. List goes on and on. Troll on, dudes.

Romeoville is a ghetto for PWT. Lakewood Falls is a bunch of cookie cutter cardboard type homes that are beginning to look like crap with several of them in foreclosure. The schools are awful, show me just one high school in Romeoville where the majority of Seniors are ready for college. The parks are full of heroin addicts. The list goes on.

The only ones touting how great Romeoville is are the residents. Do I blame you? No. It's best to live in denial and see what you want to see. I mean, if you actually had to admit you live in a shithole, then you would have to deal with it.

High Point was supposed to be high end apartments, too. They had a hard time renting them. Now half is Section 8 (whew got it right this time). The Police are there ALL the time. Anyone that has lived here for the past 10 years knows that. I donít live around there and the new apartments will not effect me. I am just sharing this so that the people that do live around that area can make a difference if they want too. Also, even if this property was zoned 19 years ago for apartments. THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO LET (OR VOTE FOR THE) OWNER TO BUILD APARTMENTS THERE. IT CAN BE REZONED. People and neighbors of that area, you have the voice to make that change. Enforce your rights to protect your property values and your neighborhood if you choose not to have more apartments, which could become more Section 8 units. Good Luck!

people speak a lot when they dont have their name put on blast. at all the public hearings at the Village no one ever shows up...so grow a pair and come to one of them and speak your peace..until you do this ,,,SH$t up about things you dont know anything about..oh yeah..lets rezone this property--do you have any idea about how rezoning works ? Obviously not, so go to the Public Hearings and show your face, until then keep trolling

You have no idea what your even talking about. You can't just rezone a private property without the owners consent. The courts would NEVER allow it. Then the owner of the land would simply sue the village for a fortune and still get to build the apartments anyway. Great plan - NOT.
For your information someone with a voucher is just as likely to rent a house next door to you as they are to go into any apartments. As for the vouchers - guess what - there aren't any new ones just floating around. There will be the same number of people living in the area with a voucher whether new apartments are built or not.
One last point to correct you on. Highpoint isn't a section 8 building - There is NO such thing. Vouchers can be spent anywhere and no local government can restrict their use. Its AGAINST federal law to even talk about trying to restrict their use.
You have no clue what your talking about!

You mean the same Mongo that is still a renter himself and lived in one of these very same apartments. No, no one is scared.

Oy. The Trolls. Guess what?

Drugs? They're everywhere.
Section 8? They're in Naperville too.
Foreclosures? Yep. Lots of folks in Naperville who got burned by the mortgage industry as well. Lots of pretenders living beyond their means as well.

Also, which high schools are you looking at where a minority are prepared for college?

Better question: why am I bothering to ask these questions to trolls?

Naperville sucks. BTW - I don't live there.

Romeoville high School - only 36% of the students are prepared for college. http://iirc.niu.edu/School.aspx...

How about you show me one high school in Romeoville that is performing above the ridiculously low state average. Bet you can't.
