Work in progress: Elburn officials address Blackberry Creek
ELBURN – A drive through the Blackberry Creek subdivision in Elburn provides a clear picture of just what happened in the building industry over the past decade. There are sections of large houses and Blackberry Creek Elementary School. But head to the far eastern section and it is a different story.
Some roads lack a top layer. There are areas of empty lots, many of them with “for sale” signs. There are ponds, but some you can’t see because weeds block the view. In urging caution to the village’s leaders as they move forward on plans for the proposed Elburn Station development, board member Bill Grabarek called Blackberry Creek “a failed development.”
Village President Dave Anderson is among those who don’t agree with that assessment.
