Lemont should have a Italian/European style town square for people to gather all year. Like the cobblestone piazza's in Italy surrounded by some small, quaint businesses. The Peterson Hardware buildings area would be perfect ? Let's buy them and just do it!

Crackdown on speeding especially on Freehauf St. Do something about the water quality and ridiculous price of monthly water & sewer costs to residents

1. Bury the power lines! I feel like we're all living under a giant spider web. 2. Paint the hideous, rusty train bridge that people see when they drive into downtown. 3. Apply dandelion-killer along State Street in the spring. 4. Bulldoze the abandoned gas station across from Lemon Tree. 5. Replace Jewel with a grocery store that actually keeps items in stock.
