                                                                           January 2003
2003 Promises to be Yet Another Year of
Dynamic Retail Growth in Carpentersville
The retail building boom that began in 2001 along Randall Road
continues to gain momentum. Menards, Dominick’s grocery and gas
station, Mcdonald’s, Wendy’s and Subway have been joined by a host of
new retail and service establishments.

Elgin Financial Savings Bank in front of the Dominick’s, and additional
commercial square footage including a chinese restaurant, a Chicago
Street pizza parlor, hair salon, Sign Depot, Cingular Wireless store and
a GNC all opened this year. On Huntley, just east of Randall a strip
commercial center opened with an Animal Hospital, Lucy’s Deli, vision
center, nail salon, real estate office and a Taylor Street Pizza
parlor. In addition, at Main/Huntley and Tay River a Four Quarters
Store, dry cleaners and North of the Border mexican restaurant
opened in a new commercial center.

The building boom will continue throughout 2003, according to
Community Development Director Patrick Grill. A Walgreens,
Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins, Culver’s Restaurant, Valvoline gas,
oil and lube center, as well as Elgin State Bank and Harris Bank
branches are all expected to break ground this year and be open for
business before the end of 2003. These new developments will add
more than 20,000 square feet to Carpentersville’s commercial and
retail base.

Theses developments are increasing both revenue and employment
opportunities within the Village. Additional development is
expected along Randall Road remains, as well as other areas
of the Village.

The dramatic commercial growth in the Randall Road area
has been fueled by residential development on the west side
of the Village. The Community Development Department
issued approximately 350 permits, primarily for new
residential units in this area including Kimball Farms,
Chestnut Woods and Springacres Hills. The average value of
these units was about $325,000.

Approximately 95% of the proposed housing in the western
annexation area is now occupied. Kimball Farms, Chestnut
Woods and Springacres Hills Unit 6 are expected to be fully
built out in 2003.
