New Town Drive Concrete Work Update

As you may already be aware, the concrete at the entrance of New Town Drive from New Town Blvd. continues to be under construction.  The last section of concrete was poured early this week and will remain blocked until late December as it reaches the proper hardness level.  Please be cautious when using that entrance as there remains only one lane open.  Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

New Town & Merz Tract Rezoning

 

Dear Residents of New Town,

On behalf of the Board of Governors for New Town at St. Charles® General Assembly, we are pleased to announce the proposed rezoning of the adjacent Merz tract.  The Board of Governors for New Town at St. Charles® General Assembly was recently approached by Homes by Whittaker’s attorney, SmithAmundsen LLC, to provide updates on recent zoning requests to the City of St. Charles Planning and Zoning Department.  As a result of the meeting, the Board of Governors requested additional information to distribute to residents.  Attached in the link below, is the updated information on the two zoning requests, and updated Master Plan.  Additionally, the package includes support from DPZ, the original New Town® planners, who were on-site and involved in the creation of the updated Master Plan, in order to ensure conformity to the current New Urbanism concepts of New Town®.

Important Tips and Info from the Security Meeting

  • Know your neighbors – “If you know what is usual & customary it is then very easy to tell what is not usual.”
  • Keep the door locked that leads into your home from the garage.
  • Trust your instincts – “If your judgement tells you something is not right, call the police to report.”
  • Beware of imposters – for example a repair person or a representative from a company you are a customer of but didn’t call.  Never be afraid to ask for identification or to call the company to verify.
  • When making a report of crime or suspicious activity, be specific.  Be able to give the officer the “What, When, Where, Who, How and Why” of the situation.
  • A dowel, broomstick or hockey stick handle work well in the door track of a sliding glass door to prevent the door from being shoved aside or lifted off the track.
  • Lights are the best deterrent to crime.  Consider switching to LED’s to make leaving the lights on less costly.
  • Never leave valuable items in your vehicle.
  • If you will be away from home have someone pick up your newspapers or any packages that might be left outside your home.
  • Do not post “selfies” on social media while you are away, wait until you return from your vacation.  Crooks use social media too!
  • Take an inventory of your valuables.   Having the information recorded in advance will make it easier for you to report them missing in what might be a traumatic situation.
  • Call 911 for any crime, fire, or serious medical problem in progress or suspected to be in progress.
