The updated designs changed the entrance, added brick columns along the east side, removed the metal siding and replaced it with faux brick, and went with a different color pallet, said James Richter, the city's planning and economic development manager.

The space has been vacant since Alexander Lumber moved to the Ridgefield area in unincorporated Crystal Lake with access to the railroad, Richter said.

But Fresh Thyme Farmers Market still will get 50 percent of those fees, which are estimated to total $11,000, waived automatically as part of an economic development incentive program the city has for Routes 14, 31 and 176, said James Richter, the citys planning and economic development manager.

It also will receive a $10,000 matching grant to purchase furniture, fixtures and equipment, he said, adding the development met all of the criteria and the council has yet to deny a grant application that does.
Fresh Thyme wouldnt take up the entire 66,000 square feet of the space, and other tenants are looking at the available space, Richter said.

The 10-year annexation agreement OKd ... [cached]

The 10-year annexation agreement OKd Tuesday allows the subsidiary Blomsness-Thebault and its associated carnival ride and equipment repair and outdoor storage business to keep doing business as it has been, Planning and Economic Development Manager James Richter has said.

City staff members have been approaching the owners of county islands and encouraging them to voluntarily annex for about the past year, Richter said. A county island is a piece of unincorporated land that is completely surrounded by a city.
Not all of Sands Road falls into the city limits, according to the citys geographic information system. But the parcel surrounding Blomsness-Thebault Company to the north and west is in the city limits and so is the parcel across the street.
Smoothing out the citys boundaries allows the city and county to streamline the delivery of services, including police protection, and annexation allows these businesses to access city utilities, Richter said.
Unlike some other cities that have higher hookup fees as well as water and sewer rates for unincorporated areas, the city of Crystal Lake does not allow unincorporated properties to access its utilities.
The city also will begin collecting property taxes on these newly annexed properties, Richter said.
