Old Nichols Landmark Status
Tonight Naperville’s Historic Preservation Commission will meet to discuss the potential landmark status of the Old Nichols Library. In May, property owner Dwight Avram unveiled plans to redesign the site of Naperville’s original library, prompting a group of citizens to file for the building to be considered a local landmark. Both sides will be heard by the commission tonight at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Center, with Naperville City Council eventually having final say on the matter.

The Naperville Police Department is once again participating in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, aimed at getting impaired drivers off the road.

Officers will also be looking for seatbelt violations.
