What Would You Improve in Yorkville in 2013?

If you could make a New Year's resolution for Yorkville, what would it be?

More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.

As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in Yorkville to make it an even better place to live?

A downtown developer is investing in the downtown, hoping to make it a thriving shopping and business destination. A new cinema is expected to open up later this year.

The economy and taxation has been a major topic for residents this past year as voters overwhelmingly supported a call for local governments to curb their budgets by 20 percent. Yorkville residents also opposed a referendum on the city's plan to purchase the REC Center, which is forcing the city to adapt its recreation offerings for the next year.

he good 1)City with a rural feel and plenty of open spaces. 2)The Fox river is the diamond in Yorkville The not to be bragged about 1)The schools need to improve. For the amount we are paying in property tax, the schools should be doing well and be highly rated. Families would want to move here, house values would go up and revenues would go up. 2)Do something about the truck traffic. This city is a shortcut to/from three major highways, 80, 88 and 55.
