The Homewood board approved a paving project for the parking lot at village hall that marks the official end of a townhome development once proposed for the property.

The one-acre area near Chestnut Road and Harwood Avenue was to be developed into 24 townhomes by 107 Highwood Holdings. That was first approved in 2018.

Village Manager Jim Marino said that development will not happen and the village is not seeking a new developer for the property.

Homewood trustees will consider a measure at their meeting Tuesday to allow local restaurants to provide outdoor dining service consistent with the state's Restore Illinois plan.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker issued an executive order in March forbidding indoor dining service in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Since then, restaurants have been able to provide service by drive-thru, takeout or delivery.
