IMPORTANT MEETINGS! SAVE THE DATES!
We have received confirmation that NorthPoint Development’s request for the rezoning of 103 acres that we believe will lead to the entire 2,200+ acre Compass Business Park will go before the Joliet council at the upcoming pre-council and council meetings on November 18th and 19th, respectively.
The Pre-Council Meeting allows time for council to debate and discuss agenda items, as well as to hear public comments. This will be held on Monday, November 18th at 5:30pm.
The Council Meeting will be for public comments and for the final vote. This will be held on Tuesday, November 19th at 6:30pm.
Both meetings are held at the Joliet City Hall, which is located at 150 W. Jefferson in downtown Joliet. Parking is available at nearby parking lots and garages.

NO PUBLICATION OR MAIL NOTIFICATION
According to Kendall Jackson, annexations are the only agenda items that are published (notification in the newspaper; letters sent out to homeowners in the notification zone). As such, there will be no formal notification to homeowners about the final vote. Please alert your neighbors and urge them to attend!
In an effort to help notify residents and offer information, we are hosting a community information meeting on November 16th from 2-4pm.
Joliet Northpoint Community Meeting
Saturday, November 16th, 2-4pm
Joliet Downtown Library, 150 North Ottawa
Hosted by: Warehouse Workers for Justice, Just Say No To Northpoint and Sierra Club Illinois
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND ATTEND!
Heads up Joliet — but I’m sure Santa Bob and his elves have looked into this with regards to Northpoint a.k.a. Eastgate….in Jackson Township….…
Does the Illinois Constitution permit imposition of the common law “corrupt or malicious motives” exception to certain immunities afforded by the Local Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act?
(Tort Immunity Act or Act) (745 ILCS 10/1-101 et seq. (West 1998)).
Blanket immunity should not be afforded to acts which are performed by local governmental entities or government officials in bad faith or out of corrupt and malicious motives.
You would think, but I guess Joliet is playing the game where the rules don’t matter. Feel free to report it to authorities.
