Future of East Ogden:
Last night a public forum on the state of the East Ogden corridor was held at city hall. Councilman Kevin Coyne lead the discussion along with Naperville Police Chief Bob Marshall and Mayor Steve Chirico. The public was able to ask questions and gave suggestions for ways to improve East Ogden as the gateway to Naperville, like making improvements to the sidewalks and streetlights and filling vacant lots and strip malls. Coyne says they hope to have an official hearing about Ogden by the end of summer with the hopes to begin projects next year.
