City council approves plan to improve Joliet: about time..
The city council has given its endorsement to a Quality of Life Plan aimed at improving conditions on the East and near West sides of the city.Next, the council will consider funding a community development corporation that would support small business ventures.
Councilman Warren Dorris said he expects to come back to the council in December with a proposal to fund the effort to bring economic development, new housing and other improvements to areas of the city covered by city council Districts 4 and 5.
Dorris, who represents District 5, said he believes the Quality of Life Plan is “a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
The council approved the plan, which was created after a yearlong study of conditions in the city.
Its about time but why such a wait-We all know its closing in on election time and they are looking for votes by throwing us all a bone ( figuratively speaking).
Take a look at down town Joliet, businesses are closed up and moved out and now they in city council want to put a band-aid on the problem….Its kind of late for that the life blood of Joliet has already leaked out and now Councilman Warren Dorris is try for a long over due transfusion of Joliet’s buisness district.
