Dear Editor:

As long-time residents and active volunteers in our Village, we would like to express our concern about District 87 plans to install 6 and 7-story light towers on the Glenbard West campus in the heart of our town.  We believe that the potential harm to the quality of life in the community is not an acceptable trade-off for the relatively small percentage of student athletes actually able to use night lighting for spring and fall extra-curricular activities at Memorial Park.

Rev. Dr. Jean Ford, a 25-year resident of Glen Ellyn, was confirmed this year as a representative to the United Nations Geneva/New York with Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status out of the United Kingdom.

She now serves on the Spirituality/Values/Global Concerns, Human Rights, Environment, and Education Committees of the United Nations in New York.

College of DuPage Sign

June 21, 2010

Last week, the Village of Glen Ellyn sent a city inspector to threaten our contractors with citations if they continued to erect new electronic signs replacing older ones damaged by weather and time in the same locations. This was unfortunate, as we need these signs to communicate with the more than 30,000 students on our campus every semester.
