Union Pacific is handling loss of business claims for local shops, including nearby Mario's Pizza and Beef, whose owner is still concerned about sustaining his business.
Businesses near the Shermer and Willow intersection keep struggling while Shermer Rd. remains blocked by the temporary stone bridge Union Pacific built to move freight until a new viaduct is built. There is still no confirmed design to replace the one that fell in July, crushing two Glenview residents driving underneath. "I've seen books that [nearby businesses] are 40 to 50 percent off the usual business they have this time of year," said Don Owen, Glenview's Deputy Village Manager. "If that lasts over time, you can't sustain a business."

Foot traffic has decreased in the area since the fatal crash, which killed a Glenview couple last week.
Wil-Sher Shopping Plaza business owners say they've seen less customers since the July 4 train wreck that caused a bridge to collapse near the Northbrook-Glenview border, the Sun-Times reports. “My customers from Glenview are not coming here," Young Shin, a Glenview resident and owner of Willow Cleaners told the newspaper. "Making our lease payment will not be easy." Union Pacific Railroad spokesman Mark Davis said a new bridge will be ready in two months, retailers doubt a quick re-opening of Shermer Road. "This is going to be crazy," Angel Hernandez, a cook at Mario's Pizza told Patch. "When they fixed the bridge it was a nightmare, we had no business, last year." The same bridge had been closed last year "for 3 ½ months while Union …

The middle school district joins D225 and village trustees in supporting an incentive plan which will save the Fortune 500 $2.6 million dollars in taxes over a 12-year period.
Glenview school District 34 is among the most recent tax-supported bodies to stand behind a property tax break for communications products giant Anixter to move into the Glen, according to Glenview Announcements. The building and four acres of land, 2591 Compass Rd., have been vacant since 1998. And, Anixter’s headquarters, which employs 670 and has been located in Glenview since 2002, is just west of the Compass Rd. space. Poll: Corporate Tax Breaks, Good for Glenview? Anixter was granted a 12-year tax reduction that officials anticipate will generate $1.6 million in added property taxes for the village and an additional 150 jobs, Glenview Announcements reports. Without the break, Anixter’s tax bill would have been $4.2 million during …

Workouts in a farm pond for a surgery-rehabbing hunting dog inspired what is now like an indoor water park for pooches on Waukegan Road.
He shouldn’t have opened that door. A visitor to Carriage Hill Kennels’ two-year-old acquatic center on Waukegan Road grew curious about activity in the next room. So he nudged the door only half open and… Boom! Glenview news delivered daily: Get the Patch newsletter A half-dozen dogs burst through. They raced around the 800-square-foot pool like maniacs, trying to scoop up any ball in sight. Amazingly, none jumped into the pool. That gave the two-generation Carriage Hill management of siblings Francine Barnes and Chris Cocallas, and Barnes’ son Bob, time to round up the canines. The humans fitted the dogs with life vests, while Bob Barnes donned a wet suit. The dogs came back in – four English springer spaniels, a golden retriever, a …

The Waukegan Rd. site has been vacant since the grocer moved to the Glen in 2006.
The Waukegan Road grocery store site that once house Dominick’s has been vacant since the retailer moved to the Glen in 2006. And, according to a consultant presentation at a workshop meeting earlier this week, filling the space could mean more business opportunity for downtown Glenview as a whole, Triblocal reports. According to TribLocal, other sites on the agenda for redevelopment included Village Hall and Fire Station #6, although Village officials and a representative from Chicago-Based U.S. Equities Realty agreed these items were not immediate. The Dominick’s site however, was recognized as a potential catalyst for bringing new businesses to the area. Additionally, officials discussed the types of businesses currently drawn to …
