The Naperville City Council might approve extending the boundary of the Riverwalk south at a meeting later this month, the Daily Herald reported.

If approved, work on the extension would not begin until 2017. The Riverwalk would be extended south from Hillside Road to Martin Avenue at a cost of $2.7 million to $3 million, the Daily Herald reported.

Yeah unless you want to count clean water, waste removal, snow plowing, police protection, the fire department, paramedics, food inspection, animal control, and all the other jobs a privileged idiot like you takes for granted!

Obviously you missed the distinction between needed and nice to have. Just like all of us with family budgets there are critical needs and optional extras if we can afford them. This is an optional extra that right now we can't afford unless we raise taxes or float more bonds neither of which would be advisable.

It is GREAT to hear that City Council is thinking along the lines of improvements to this fantastic City that places us above and beyond the reach of other cities in Illinois and within this great Nation. It is projects such as this that make Naperville more desirable AND therefore increases our property values. Congrats to City Council. The only adversity with this project is that it will not begin for another few years. Why cannot we begin the project this Summer?

Gerald would prefer to park unregulated industry onto the banks of the West Branch, like it was done in the old days. Water pollution is merely collateral damage.

Gerard would prefer we not spend money we don't have on things we don't need until we pay off our debts and fund our city employee pension plan liabilities.
