Little Friends Development

Tonight the Historic Preservation Commission will consider plans for a residential development on the Little Friends campus. Developer Ram West Capital hopes to build 47 townhouse units on the nearly four-acre site, with three housed in the historic Kroehler Mansion. 12 new buildings would be built to house the rest. City council recently approved a $450,000 incentive to Little Friends for accepting an offer that would keep the mansion from being demolished.

90th Birthday Parade

Long-time Naperville resident Fred Miller celebrated turning 90 with a drive-by birthday parade celebration. Well-wishers cruised by Villa St. Benedict in Lisle where he now resides, honking and waving signs to share their affection. Fred and his late wife Rosa raised five children in Naperville, where he clearly made many great friends, who were happy to show up for his big day.
