Board OKs concept for Nebraska Street complex
The Elburn Village Board on Monday approved the basic concept plan for a business and residential building on Nebraska Street. The .83-acre development site is a vacant lot just west of Elburn Car Wash.

Developers Brad Burns and Marshall Miles plan to build a two-story structure with several business spaces on the first level and nine apartments on the second level. It will be a contemporary-style building with a stone and brick exterior. The plan also includes a small drainage detention area and landscaping.

With the concept approval, Burns and Miles may proceed with preliminary planning and then present the final development plan to the Village Board for approval. They hope to begin building the complex this summer.

Lions may sell liquor an extra hour
Elburn Lions Club may open the bar at 11 a.m. Sunday, June 7, for its Lions Motorcycle Run and party at Lions Park Sunday, June 7.

Under the village code, liquor may not be sold earlier than noon on Sundays in Elburn. The Village Board agreed Monday to waive the rule for the event because it is a charity fundraiser, trustees said.
