Land Use Sub-Committees (Task Forces) to Re-Convene January 6 Virtually to Discuss Potential Temporary Kansas Street Closure

At its December 9, 2020 Land Use and Policy Committee meeting, members were introduced to an idea of a potential temporary closure of Kansas Street for the late spring and summer of 2021.  Following the discussion, it was the consensus of the Committee to engage community participation through sub-committees (task forces) to discuss this proposal and to seek input for potential direction.

As such,  there will be one sub-committee comprised of downtown businesses owners and one for downtown residents.  These subcommittees will be held virtually via zoom.  

The Downtown Business Task Force will meet virtually at 5:30 PM on Wednesday December 30 to introduce the issue and again at 7:00 PM on Wednesday January 6 to form conclusions.*  To respect volunteer’s time, each meeting will be scheduled for one hour.  The Village will contact downtown businesses** and let them know about each group and ask them to submit comments to publiccomments@frankfortil.org by noon on Wednesday, December 30.  Each Task force will be asked select a spokesperson from their group to make comments to the Land Use and Policy Committee that will meet on January 13, 2021.  We expect the Village Board to consider the issues at their January 19 or February 1 meeting.

*The Downtown Residential Task Force will meet virtually at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, December 30 to introduce the issue and again at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, January 6 to form conclusions.
