Cell Tower Considered
Tonight the Naperville City Council will consider approving a permit for construction of a 135-foot cell tower on the Springbrook Golf Course near the Springbrook Prairie Forest Preserve and Naper Aero Estates. The tower would not be tall enough to require lighting, but it would be lit for pilot safety due to its proximity to the airport.
5th Avenue Public Meeting
There was a large turnout at last night’s public meeting about the 5th Avenue development project. Ryan Companies held the meeting to give residents an opportunity to talk to people working on the project, make comments, and express concerns or hopes for the development.
