D.R. Horton Update

D.R. Horton’s site plan for the proposed Polo Club Development continues to get less dense. This morning, the developer released its latest plan, which would include 500 homes – down from the original 723-home proposal in June and the 637-home revision in October. The main difference being the apartments have been replaced with more townhomes. After resistance from area residents, Horton has slowly reduced the amount of homes in their plan, with the 500-unit proposal the lowest density so far.


Safe Holiday Travel

A record-breaking 112.5 million travelers will take to the roads, runways, and rails this holiday week. AAA Chicago says as that’s almost a third of all Americans traveling, with about a 4 percent increase in travelers compared to this time last year. To be prepared on the roads, leave before or after peak rush hours, plan alternate routes, and check your vehicle for any repairs first. If you’re flying, AAA estimates you’ll be among 6.7 million people to do so. Make sure you arrive to the airport at least two hours before your flight and check the TSA website for package guidelines.

Naperville Caddy Earns Evans Scholarship

It may be a bit chilly for golf at the moment but that doesn’t mean it can’t still make a splash. Naperville Country Club caddie Audrey Cahill recently received the Evans Scholarship – a four-year, full tuition and housing scholarship awarded by the Western Golf Association to deserving caddies. Evans Scholars must meet a criteria of academic excellence, caddie record, leadership and character, and financial need. Since it was founded in 1930, over 10,000 caddies have graduated college as Evans Scholars. Cahill, a Naperville resident and St. Ignatius senior, has caddied at Naperville Country Club for three years.
