Fence Posts Grounded at North Terrace Park 1/22/07
Peerless Fence Company broke ground yesterday, installing steel fence posts throughout North Terrace Park. Warm temperatures and soft grounds have slowed progress to the project that will separate the park and residents from the dangerous east/west railway. Weather permitting fence sections should connect the posts by mid February. T.E.A.R.S. Vice President Helen Byrd was on hand to view the progress, “the work can not be completed fast enough, residents including children will continue to use this deadly short cut despite increased education and enforcements.” Union Pacific has provided funding for the Villa Park side of the rails while Lombard seeks reimbursement from Metra in securing the petitioned area to the south.
