November - December

From the Desk of President Dean S. Argiris

Believe it or not, the holiday season is upon us once again! Help me and the Village Board usher in this magical season by lighting up the holiday lights at our annual “Lights Around Wheeling” event on Sunday, November 23 at Friendship Park. In addition to the ceremonial turning on of the holiday lights, enjoy refreshments, festive live music, train rides for the kids, and of course visits and photo opportunities with Santa. Be sure to get there early to see Santa and Mrs. Claus make their way down Milwaukee Avenue on their horse and sleigh. We hope you can join us beginning at 4:30 p.m. for this fun-filled family event!

I am excited to announce that the groundbreaking ceremony for the highly-anticipated Northgate Crossings development was held on October 8. (See top picture below.) Reva Development is working to construct a 288-unit luxury apartment complex on the site. This ceremonial groundbreaking marks the official start of this project, and I am so pleased that the Village Board and I were present to help place the first shovels in the ground. Northgate Crossings is the first of much more Town Center area development you will see near the Dundee Road and Northgate Parkway intersection in the coming months and years. The project is expected to be completed in 2015.

In August, the Village signed a redevelopment agreement with the Wheeling Town Center developer to build a transit-oriented mixed-use development on the large vacant site at the southeast corner of Dundee Road and Northgate Parkway. The development team is currently working to complete the applications for zoning approval associated with the project. The Board and I are proud to watch this development come to fruition.

This year's Taste of the Town promotional event and Chamber fundraiser was held on October 9 at the Westin Chicago North Nearly 900 people attended the event, and approximately $40,000 in total revenue was raised for the Wheeling / Prospect Heights Area Chamber of Commerce. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit three local charities: Alexander Graham Bell Montessori School, the Cancer Wellness Center, and the Korean Cultural Center of Chicago. The event nearly doubled the total revenue raised in 2013 and increased attendance by 50%. We are greatly appreciative to all who attended and the restaurants and businesses that participated. This event is a not only a great way for our restaurants to show off their delicious offerings, but also raises money and awareness of our Chamber of Commerce.

On a personal note, I’d like to assure all of our residents and business owners that the Board and I are continually working closely together and with staff for the betterment of the Village of Wheeling. Since becoming President, I have represented Wheeling at the Northwest Municipal Conference, where I now serve as chairman of the Transportation Committee and as a member of the Legislative Committee. I was also recently voted in as 6th District Commissioner of the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission by the majority of the district’s mayors. It is my hope and aim to work through these regional organizations in order to proudly represent our Village and be a strong advocate for Wheeling.
