— Rethink Rezoning, Save Main responses share similar concerns – Dr. Brian Miller
https://legallysociable.com/2019/08/01/preserve-neighborhoods-save-main-responses-cut-from-the-same-anti-development-cloth-part-one/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The suburb in which I live and the neighboring suburb both have proposed redevelopment ideas and each has attracted opposition from residents. Both sets of opposition have yard signs to voice their displeasure and residents have spoken at public meetings. Part One of this analysis involves the basics of the proposed projects and how this fits into what suburbs generally try to do. The Rethink Rezoning group is responding to a study commissioned by the city of Wheaton to improve development along the busy Roosevelt Road corridor that runs east-west through the center of the suburb. . .Neither of these projects are unusual for suburban communities. Indeed, they both attempt to take advantage of unique traits already in the suburb. In Wheaton, the Roosevelt Road corridor has been an area of interest for the city for decades. With tens of thousands of cars passing through each day, it presents an opportunity, particularly since it is just south of the downtown (and traffic does not necessarily turn off Roosevelt to go downtown) and north of the other major shopping area at Danada (along the busy Butterfield Road corridor). But, Wheaton has generally been conservative about what development they allow along this stretch. Compared to Glen Ellyn to the east or the Ogden Avenue corridor in northwest Naperville, the Roosevelt Road stretch in Wheaton is relatively void of strip malls, fast food restaurants, car repair places, and rundown facilities. Again: this has been an intentional effort to maintain a certain level of quality. The proposed changes would build on this by updating some uses (most suburbs utilize single-use zoning but this can be restrictive in certain areas) and try to encourage some cohesiveness across stretches. What is now a hodgepodge of offices, some older houses, some more recent office buildings, could have a more uniform character and present a more pleasing aesthetic. I don’t know how many people will walk along such a busy road but it certainly does not lend itself to that now. All of this could help improve aesthetics and bring in more revenue from taxes in a revitalized district. Having a more uniform plan could help bring in more money for the city which then helps relieve local tax burdens. . .If these projects are in line with suburban plans – let alone the long-term plans for each community – what are the residents objecting to? More on that in Part Two tomorrow.)

— Where in Illinois will people be able to use marijuana? Local governments will decide – Joseph Bustos (DIERSEN: For a municipality or a county to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet.

Each and every Wheaton resident should urge Wheaton’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.wheaton.il.us/544/City-Council) and at City Council meetings (the next one is today, Monday, July 15, at 7:00 PM) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton ASAP. Similarly, each and every DuPage County resident should urge DuPage County’s Chairman and each of its board members by email (https://dupageco.org/CountyBoard/CountyBoardListing.aspx) and at board meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP.

However, because I am a member of the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC), and therefore the DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), my critics/opponents do everything that they can to get MTRCC, DCRCC, and IRP to punish me.
