“There’s not going to be an Elgin Commons" - Schock

The Daily Herald reports that Sandor is now the lone dissenter on the 72-acre Wal-Mart issue. It also describes Mayor Schock's far-west dream:

Schock said the thousands of acres west of Randall Road up to Route 47 that are slated for high-end residential development is a much better suited area for upper-end retailers.

“For many other communities, Randall had to be it for them because they are not going much farther west,” he said, citing Geneva, St. Charles and South Elgin as examples. “But we have the opportunity to go a long way west, and that’s where we will pick up higher-end retail.”
