Time's up: A year has passed since the Naperville City Council imposed a one-year no-build restriction on 6 acres near Plainfield-Naperville Road and West Street, between two bodies of water owned by the Naperville Park District. Unless the City Council takes further action, a developer could move forward with plans to build homes on the land. What should happen with the Ponds of Hobson West?
What do you think? Should Crestview Builders be allowed to pursue development on the land? Should the Naperville Park District be allowed to acquire the property for $2.5 million? If it becomes public land, what amenities would you like to see on the site?
UPDATE: At Wednesday's City Council meeting, Park District attorney Rachel Robert said negotiations with Crestview Builders have been extended until Jan. 30. Crestview wants $4.1 million for the land, $1.6 million more than the Park District's offer.
