What is going on at the Old Family Pride/Family Home Video(Hooks Drugstore)? I saw that someone has already gutted the inside of the old Family Pride and have almost finished gutting the old Family Home Video, but it appears to be halted. Why is there caution tape in the south parking lot by the dumpster. I tried seeing if they had a Village Demolition Permit, but it doesn't appear to have anything posted. Just wondering.

By the way if there was demo activity going on, why wasn't a Village Permit displayed...I would've had someone up my a** from the Village if my permit wasn't displayed in my front window for just about anything I do with my house.

Pull your garbage cans up on time and shut your pie-hole.

I heard there is a flodding issue thats why renovations have been halted.
Caution tape so noone goes dumpster diving. They don't want anyone getting hurt in there, they dont need a lawsuit!

I highly doubt it's a flooding issue. Honestly, if it was shutdown for flooding why not pull the dumpster? I see they had gutted the Family Pride part and the one afternoon there were guys removing old flooring in the Family Home Video section...I never saw their EPA demo permit or Village permit posted like it should, plus those stores are old and might contain asbestos. I would like to see their survey that is supposed to be done for commercial buildings being rehabbed or having demo done. I know for a fact the floor tile in Family Pride was that old 9x9 flooring. I don't know if it was asbestos but it has to be tested if its going to be removed.

Why do you care about permits? Honestly I don't really care if there are permits or not as long as some businesses move in.

If its asbestos I care....this owner made a bad decision not selling to Family Pride...that flooring is on the public sidewalk because the demo guys didn't clean it all up.

The village cares if I have permits when I do work on my house so why not the owner of that building?

The village has a stop work order on the building. I would guess because their is no demo permit.

No hurry now...Airport Cycles is going to Oak Forest (I think in the vacant Ace Building on Cicero).

If anything and it had to come down it always could be village green 2.

I have just heard from a source that the bike dealer will not be moving into the old Ace hardware building after all. Seems while he was playing both sides someone else bought the property. So I wonder what will be his plan now?
