Does anyone know what those signs are about? It has the words "Haven Commons" with the circle-slash (international no symbol). I saw them in front of homes on Haven, between Cedar and Prairie.

My guess is on Haven Avenue just east of the cop shop is a failed subdivision that never took off. Maybe they are thinking of rezoning it into some sort of hillbilly style multi-family s.h.i.t hole.

This is the property just east of Cedar on Haven. So far, a day care is slated to go up. More coming whether we like it or not.

The huge 2.66 acre site where the house known as Francis mansion was sold to silver cross. And now the Village is allowing the zoning be changed in order to make a buck. The property will be the site of an office building and Triple R Daycare from Mokena. The parking lot will back up to backyards of homes on Prairie. It is supposed to be on the agenda at the Village Board Meeting tomorrow. It could happen to anyone if the Village sees $$$$$$.

So who is getting paid off for this development?

What a horrible idea. I certainly can't blame the homeowners who live there for being upset. The small town feel is being chipped away before our very eyes.

I agree, it's not the spot for a commercial business. I love the look of those old homes, set back on those beautiful lots. I hope the village board uses common sense and denies this development. I really feel sorry for the people who have homes adjacent to the property. It's going to ruin their way of life.

You are right!! It is not on the agenda for tonight's Village Board meeting after all. The agenda was just posted today - finally - and it is not listed.

I understand that it may be difficult to market those older homes, but I agree, this is not the space for commercial use. How do you get one of those yard signs? I think we all need to post them in our yards.

Imagine the traffic nightmare at Haven and Cedar!
They said they were going to make it right turn only out of the daycare???? So the people on Prairie and 4th will have to deal with all of the traffic? What a joke!

That can't be true! Only a right turn out when the traffic light is right there at the intersection!! By the way, you try even turning onto Cedar coming off of 4th Ave you sit there FOREVER!! Not going to happen!!

It is true. Was stated in the meeting. Right turn only on Haven. People who come from the train still shoot down Prairie to 4th on the chance that there will be a break in traffic on Cedar. I see it every day.

Thank you New Lenox Village and Triple R Daycare, for ruining our once private yard that my parents have maintained for the past 35 years. I guaruntee that this is not what Mrs. Francis would have wanted with her yard, which is why you had to jump through hoops to make it work. You should be ashamed of yourselves for ruining this historic part of town.

People shouldn't use Triple R in protest. The village doesn't care. Money talks.

Money talks. What's the construction going on in the Commons? Is that the new Police Station?

The sign is up for the day care. Looks like the right people were paid off.

Just wondering what the Ordinace is for a DayCare being within a block of the Drugie filled Pit Stop? I am assuming this issue is being swept under the rug for many reasons, just like every other issue regarding the Haven Commons!

Ok, what is the Rule with a Day Care and a Bar within the same block? Legal or not?
