At the McLean County Board meeting this morning, there was a long discussion between board members with regards to the Stringtown LLC application for a special use permit to operate a gravel pit for up to 10 years across the street from Fox Creek Elementary School.   Even after 21 hours of testimony in front of the Zoning Board of Appeals and their 'yes' recommendation vote for the special use permit, the McLean County Board voted NO to the application with a strong 14-5 majority.  Thanks to all those families and Fox Creek staff and Fox Creek neighbors that dedicated time and efforts to voice their concerns with the gravel pit issue.  McLean County Board members' votes can be viewed on the Pantagraph website or www.nofoxcreekpit.com and notes or emails would be appropriate to those members for their consideration of Fox Creek School families and staff.
