From community member John Schofield:
I sincerely object to the Village of Downers Grove subsidizing the liquor store business contained in this measure.
Otherwise the Village is encouraging the business (Lemon Tree Grocer) to expand its liquor business, and at the expense of tax-collecting competitors in Downers Grove.
The original agreement was to gain a "grocery store" for downtown Downers Grove, and instead we have a trendy restaurant and handy liquor store that incidentally sells some high-priced groceries.
Please revisit the original intent and remove liquor sales from the subsidy.
