No Recommendation for Polo Club Subdivision:
The Polo Club subdivision will go to City Council with no recommendation, either positive or negative. That’s due to a last second vote change from Planning and Zoning Commissioner Bruce Hanson, which resulted in a 3-3 split vote on the 702-unit residential development. Since their first appearance at the June 20 meeting, developer D.R. Horton removed 21 units, agreed to extend Book Road all the way down to 111th street, and to expand 119th to three lanes. While some residents were happy about the traffic improvements, many were still concerned about the high density of the project. The Polo Club development as proposed is set to have about 6.4 households per acre, while surrounding subdivisions have between two and three households per acre.
Confront Corruption Vigil:
As the sun went down over the Naperville Riverwalk last night, dozens gathered at the Dandelion Fountain for a candlelight vigil entitled “Confront Corruption and Demand Democracy.” The Naperville event was one of hundreds around the country with supporters calling for an honest and transparent democracy, encouraging voting, and standing in protest of President Donald Trump’s performance at the recent Helsinki summit. The event also included some songs and chants, and candles to light up the night with their message.
It’s the perfect time to take a spin in the newly renovated Yorkshire Manor Park. On Tuesday the Naperville Park District held a ribbon cutting to unveil the revamped design, complete with a new playhouse with fun musical features, and that super cool zip line. This was the last of five playground renovations unveiled this summer. The park district is now looking ahead to three more playgrounds on schedule to be updated in 2019: you can weigh in on those at the 2019 Capital Improvement Projects Open House at the Fort Hill Activity Center on July 26 at 5 p.m.
Water Polo Championships:
The U14 City Girls Water Polo Championship took place at Naperville North last night with Cress Creek facing off against Huntington Estates. Cress Creek came out hot and scored first, but Huntington Estates did not let that faze them, ultimately scoring thirteen points on the night with multiple girls notching numerous goals. Cress Creek would try to rally in the fourth quarter but Huntington Estates walked away with the medals and the title 13-7.
Later in the night the Blue Dolphins of Maplebrook II took on Huntington Estates in the U14 co-ed Championship. The Blue Dolphins struck early in the first and third quarters to take a 3-2 lead, but the Seahawks scored the next four goals of the game and clamped down on defense. Huntington Estates completed the sweep of the U14 division with a 6-4 championship game victory and a celebratory dip in the pool.
