With Heinen’s Fine Foods opening this August and new shops popping up around town, there’s an exciting new energy in Barrington. We hear rumors that some other popular companies are eying Barrington as a great place to open for business. And here’s one of the burning questions we’re hearing people ask today: What businesses will be opening at the new development in the heart of downtown Barrington, on the southwest corner of Hough and Main Streets? If you want the latest scoop about the project, you’ll get it TONIGHT at the Village of Barrington’s Town Hall Meeting.
The Evanston-based developers handling the Hough-Main project say their plans include between six and ten shopping and dining options on the first floor, with office tenants on the upper floors of the three story building planned for the 2.7 acre site. Village officials say the developer is talking with multiple interested parties, but no announcements have been made about who will set up shop in the new building. This project is just one of several items on tonight’s Town Hall agenda. Here is the full list of topics they plan to discuss…
- Upcoming special events
- Attracting new business to the village
- Updates on the Canadian National Railroad situation
- Economic and community development
- Updates on the Hough and Main Street projects
There will also be a question-and-answer session and an opportunity to provide direct feedback to Village officials. Click HERE for more information and a copy of the agenda.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. TONIGHT, Thursday, April 19th. But please not that it is NOT taking place at Village Hall. Instead, they’re hosting the meeting at the Barrington Area Library, 505 North Northwest Highway. Hope to see you there!
