More Senior Housing:

More low-income senior housing could be coming to Naperville. At last night’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting the board unanimously approved a proposal from Naperville Elderly Homes to add a five-story, 67-unit wing to Martin Avenue Apartments. The addition to the 40-year old building is estimated to cost $16 million. The proposal now goes to the building review board for approval.

NEF Breakfast:

This morning the Naperville Education Foundation, or NEF, hosted their 25th annual Building a Passion Breakfast, raising funds for programs in District 203. The event brought many of the organization’s founding members together, and even featured an address from one of the first students to receive a scholarship from NEF 25 years ago, Vince Lozada. And keynote speaker Ruth Cross is a former District 203 principal who was also a recipient of one of the first NEF grants.

Boys Lacrosse:

Naperville Central boys lacrosse celebrated senior night before playing host to Benet Academy last night. Both teams came into the game riding three game winning streaks. The RedHawks jumped out to a 6-2 halftime lead thanks to some great passing early on. The Redwings fought to keep it close all night, pulling within a single goal several times. In the end Central was just too strong on offense as Trevor Moore scored four goals to help move the RedHawks to 14 and 2 on the season with the 12-7 victory.
