Car show & summer sculpture launch on June 17

The Downtown Naperville Alliance (DNA) is celebrating Father’s Day weekend with its annual car show on Saturday, June 17 from 9 a.m. to noon along Jackson Avenue, between Eagle and Main Streets. The free event will feature about 100 unique cars in all makes and models.

The DNA will also host its Summer Sculpture Program Launch Event in concert with the car show from 10 a.m. to noon.

Those attending can visit the DNA’s table on the northwest corner of Webster Street and Jackson Avenue to pick up a map for the summer sculptures. This year’s theme is “Flying into Summer,” as 19 brightly colored dragonfly benches are scattered around downtown Naperville.

For more information about both events, visit the DNA’s website.

Duplex redevelopment proposal advances to city council 

At its meeting last Wednesday, the Planning and Zoning Commission offered a favorable recommendation for developing a pair of duplexes known as the Franklin Flats at 818 E. Franklin Ave. and 25 N. Huffman St.

Petitioner Franklin Huffman LLC is seeking authority from Naperville officials to raze an existing building on the parcels and construct two duplex buildings.

Commissioners cited several reasons for their support, including such features as first-floor master bedrooms, which have been identified as needs for the city’s housing stock.
