Matrix Club Application Filing
At last night’s Liquor Commission meeting, the group decided to table a discussion of the Matrix Club’s application for three different types of liquor licenses. The new 4,500 square foot entertainment, restaurant and banquet venue is planned at 808 S. Route 59 adjacent to the Mall of India. The Matrix Club petitioners seek a restaurant and tavern license, a license to permit the service of alcohol at catered events, and a theater license for live performances. The commission was concerned about the proposed bottle service that accompanied the applications, which would allow customers in some areas to have self-service open bottles of spirits. Safety was the main topic of discussion. The petitioner said he has a security consultant on board the first week of May and plans to work with the Naperville Police Department if a large event is booked. They also offered the commission a site visit. Discussion on this issue will continue at a future meeting.
My Stop app
Indian Prairie School District 204 will begin using the My Stop bus tracking app on Monday. The app allows parents and students to see where their bus is on the route and time their journey to the bus stop accordingly. Ron Johnson, director of support operations for IPSD 204, said the process of adjusting to using the app took three years. The My Stop application is available on computers, tablets and any Internet-accessible Apple or Android mobile device. Johnson warned that students should always plan to be at their bus stop five minutes before the bus arrives, and the app could be subject to a few issues.
Possible New K-5 Social Studies Curriculum
The Naperville School District 203 School Board may approve a newly adapted K-5 social studies curriculum. At Monday’s meeting, the district administration presented the new program. The aim is for students to develop and understand disciplinary concepts in the fields of history, geography, civics and economics. The administration said the new curriculum represents multiple perspectives, is culturally appropriate and allows students to broaden their understanding of global society. The Board of Directors will vote on the approval of the program at a future meeting.
Park District Survey
The Naperville Park District is asking the community to participate in updating its strategic plan and master plan. Randomly selected households will receive a survey in the mail this month, which can then be completed online, by mail or by phone. Once these responses have been taken for statistical integrity, the survey will then be open to the general public online. The questions will attempt to assess community recreation needs and views on the district.
