There's a few items you should have on your calendar over the next 10 days:
1. Monday, April 21st is the first Village Board meeting with newly elected Trustees Julie Siegel and Thomas Fehring. The agenda is a real barn-burner!
2. This Thursday, April 24th at 7pm, Advocates for Education of WFB will host a forum entitled "The Pitfalls of Raising a Children in an Affluent Community" with featured guest Philip Chard. The event is located on the 2nd floor of the WFB library. You can find out more about Advocates for Education here, and read more details about the forum here.
3. Saturday, April 26th, the WFB Civic Foundation is hosting "Green Day in the Bay" .. This is a volunteer effort to spend one hour, from 9am-10am, to clean up our streets, parks, and beaches. Contact JulErickson@sbcglobal.net or read the details here or the NOW article here.
4. Next Tuesday, April 29th is the WFB Plan Commission meeting to discuss the application for Aurora Health Care to build a medical clinic on the old Famous Footwear/Talbot's property on Silver Spring. The agenda can be read here.
Prediction 1: Aurora gets their clinic. The CDA approved it, and what Aurora wants, Aurora gets. Who knows, though. Maybe the seven commission members will see what an important corner-stone property it is, and hold out for something that would be welcomed. Hope against hope.
Predictions 2-3-4: The next three major properties that are renovated on Silver Spring will have rents so high that the only viable businesses are medical clinics, pharmacy chains, and banks. Shorewood will be so envious!
