Homewood trustees' agenda includes requests for special use permit, stop sign installation

At the regular board meeting Tuesday Homewood trustees will witness four new employees take the oath of office and will consider a request for installation of a four-way stop at a residential intersection and a request for a day care center special use permit.

The board meets at 7:30 p.m. in village hall, 2020 Chestnut Road. 

Three new officers will officially join the Homewood Police Department: Nicholas Camilli, Thomas Rodeghier and Timothy Rosenberg. 

Melanie Hamilton will join the Public Works Department as a street maintenance worker. 

In other business, the board will consider a request for a special use permit from Michelle and Alfred Saulsberry to operate a child care center at 18729-18731 Dixie Highway.

The Saulsberrys are also requesting a parking variance. They plan to use four existing parking spaces to create a play area, which would put the number of available spaces below  the minimum required by the village.

The board will also consider whether to install a four-way stop at the intersection of Linden Road and Loomis Avenue, one block north of Ridge Road. Residents in the area submitted a petition with 41 signatures asking for the installation of stop signs to reduce speeding by motorists.
