At the Oct. 31 Loves Park City Council meeting, Aldermen gave approval to an ordinance, second reading, for the City to enter into a redevelopment agreement with DYN Kishwaukee, LLC, for the southwest corner of E. Riverside Blvd. and Forest Hills Road. City of Loves Park Public Works and Development Director Dan Jacobson explained that the redevelopment agreement, which is aimed at bringing more business into the City, provides Tax Increment Financing (TIF) assistance. Additionally, the property has now been included in the Business Development District incentive program (“similar to what was done at Meadow Mart”). DYN Kishwaukee is planning to build up to four buildings in the complex’s former parking lot and is currently working on leases now. The old K-Mart/Sears building will be renovated to attract other business.

Alderman Clint Little gave the weekly Police Activity Report for the week of Oct. 23-29, in which 493 calls for service, 201 arrests and 18 accidents were reported.
