The following items were part of a weekly Village of Northbrook memo.

Temporary Signal at West Lake/Shermer Interesection

The temporary signal at the West Lake Ave. and Shermer Rd. intersection became operational last week and will remain in place until the Old Willow Rd. and Patriot Blvd. connection work is completed. That work is anticipated to be end by Friday, Nov. 16.

The temporary signal operations are controlled by video detection cameras. When no traffic is present, the signal will remain green for the West Lake Avenue approaches.

Police Activity

The police received three reports of burglary/trespass to motor vehicles on Sunday, October 21st. They occurred in the 800 block of Dell Rd. and 600 block of Gregg Rd.. The vehicles were parked in driveways and unlocked.

Although all three vehicles were ransacked, nothing was known to have been removed from the vehicles. Responding police encouraged residents to lock their vehicles, especially when parked in driveways and on the street.

A residential burglary was reported in the 1000 block of Shermer Rd. The home was ransacked and entry made by prying open the front door. The out of town residents were contacted and a boarding service called to secure the door.

Evidence Technicians responded and Investigations is working on the cases.

Northwest Corner of Dundee Rd. and Skokie Blvd.

The owner of the property at the northwest corner of Dundee Road and Skokie Boulevard has entered into a contract to sell the property to the development team of Crossroads Development and the Morningside Group. The sale is subject to the developers receiving Village Board approval of their plans for the site.  

Early indications from the developers are that their project would be a mixed use development consisting of luxury apartments and a commercial component that would be anchored by a Mariano's grocery store. Village staff anticipates the developers will soon submit their preliminary application for Village Board consideration.

Did you mean a "MARIANO'S" grocery store in this article?
