2023 City of Naperville Community Survey

The City of Naperville recently announced its 2023 Community Survey is open until August 16. Naperville last completed a community survey in 2016 and before that, in 2012.

The 2021 Naperville Priorities Plan recommended a survey be held every two to three years. According to the City of Naperville, the survey is ‘to provide services that ensure a high quality of life, sound fiscal management, and a dynamic business environment, while creating an inclusive community that values diversity.’

From July 5 to August 16, sample surveys are being randomly sent to households across the city. Residents can either fill out a paper survey packet or scan a QR code to fill it out online. To fill out the survey and for more information, visit the City of Naperville website.

Commissioners give a sign of support 

The owner of one of Naperville’s shopping centers has been given a tentative green light to move forward on the installation of three new signs that come in response to challenges in recent years. 

Maryland-based CR Fox River LLC, which oversees the Fox River Commons shopping center at 704-944 S. Route 59, is seeking approval from the city to exceed municipal sign code standards. The firm has proposed three new ground signs, measuring 24 feet, 8 inches each, which is a deviation from the current 10-foot maximum under city code. 

CR representatives said Fox River Commons has “experienced a notable decline” in customer traffic and tenant occupancy and is hoping the new signs will turn the tide. Within the past half-decade, such retailers as Bed Bath and Beyond, Century Tile, Office Max, and Petland have left the shopping center. 

The Naperville Planning and Zoning Commission reviewed the petitioner’s request at its Wednesday meeting and gave a favorable recommendation to the decision-making city council.
