Clow Site To Become Subdivision:
A new 61-home development will be built on one of the last pieces of undeveloped land in south Naperville. Tuesday night city council approved construction of the subdivision on the 31.5 acres of land southwest of Book Road and 103rd Street. Plans include a monument made of stones from the old buildings on the property dedicated to the original owners – the Clow Family, some of the first Will County settlers. Council also voted to annex the land into the city.
Auto Repair Shop Approved:
And the Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5-3 to approve the construction of a Christian Brothers Automotive on 95th street, between Andy’s Frozen Custard and the fire station. The commission had to approve a conditional use of the site for the car repair shop, as the property was originally zoned for retail. Residents of the neighboring subdivision expressed concern over noise levels coming off the shop and the potential for hazardous waste. The project will go to council for the final vote.
