During the fall of 2018 and winter of 2019, with all the severely cold weather, it did not stop new building in Yorkville. There were 92 single family residential permits issued. The final BUILD incentive home closed on March 8, 2019, for a total of 428 BUILD permits issued overall since 2012.
New commercial projects opened, under construction or approved include: Planet Fitness, Arby’s, Flight Team, and a Solar Farm Project for Kendall County Government Center. Also, Grace Coffee in Countryside opened its doors in February and Cedarhurst Assisted Living and Memory Care on US 34 and Cannonball will open mid-March.
Later this year, the building department will be making a proposal recommending the adoption the 2018 International Codes (ICC). Finally, in partnership with Backflow Solutions, Inc. (BSI) the City is taking part in an IEPA survey for cross connection/backflow devices to help prevent the contamination of our water sources.
