Senn Stresses Flexibility

Macomb, IL – Macomb aldermen were urged to stay flexible regarding the issue of restrictions on business in what could be corridor entrances to the W-I-U campus. Alderman at-large Chris Senn said aldermen must remain flexible when granting changes around the campus area. He's on a committee which is considering long-range planning changes for the university. He says Adams Street, where Mark Bloom wants to open a coffee-shop and espresso bar, is one of the areas where changes are being considered. The area is mostly a residential area, and other aldermen were concerned about late-night noise to nearby renters.
