136. Talk with Trustees at TONIGHT’S Town Hall Meeting

 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……

11. Find Spring Treasures at Ice House Antique Show

 Somehow I’ve trained my two-year-old to say “It’s a happy day!” first thing when she wakes up. She shouts this out at the first signs of sunlight, even if it’s dark, stormy and I feel like crawling back into bed. But today, it really LOOKS like a happy day. The sun is shining (at least for now), the forecast calls 70 degrees and I feel like getting outside and planting something in the garden. But first, I’m heading over to the third annual Spring Antique and Garden Show at the Ice House Mall. It’s happening all day today and tomorrow and there are treasures to be found that are sure bring some sunshine into your own home or garden.

The Barrington Spring Antique and Garden Show is getting underway as we speak……
