Smiths are back for final zoning plat approval

On the board meeting agenda tonight, JELMJ, Inc. LLC aka S Mark Smith and Vivian Smith are back with the Wheeling Park district for final zoning plat of the Prairie Preserve subdivision for mixed commercial and residential use.
The address says 333 W. Dundee (aka Community Rec Center) and the description on the second page is South of Dundee, but the map and rest of the text is of Lake Cook Road & Milwaukee.
The Current use says: Vacant, natural area, but the dirt movers and mounds of dirt  on the east portion do not look like natural areas.
The west portion is dedicated to Residential use, which makes sense (note sarcasm) because this is the Park District portion and mostly a large lake and wetlands.
Also since it was mostly wetlands before, it makes sense (note more sarcasm) for the Village to grant the variance to reduce the requirements for water storage (ie water detention area to prevent flooding).

Happy Thanksgiving

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving

It is the time of the year to enjoy the holiday lights and start reflecting on this past year.
What are some of the good things that happened?
What things should be changed?

The village decided to take a step back and reconsider the gambling cafes.  That makes sense since they are a different class.  How can they decide the difference between a restaurant or bar and a gambling cafe?  percentage of sales from gambling? square footage devoted to gambling?

Gambling cafes

What do you all think about gambling cafes?
How many gambling cafes does the village need?
How many gambling cafes should the village approve before the first one even opens?
