The 540 acres that the Village of Lakewood plans to annex. (Click to enlarge.)
The Village of Lakewood asked permission to annex 540 acres running up to Dean Street Road and Route 176, where mail boxes have a Woodstock address.
This southwest intersection of Route 176 and Route 47 will be in Lakewood once annexation is completed.
They got permission to proceed from McHenry County Circuit Court Judge Michael Caldwell.
Kolze's Corner Gardens on the southeast corner of Route 176 and Dean Street Road will be the northwest corner of Lakewood once the proposed annexation is complete.
The area includes the proposed SportsPlex, plus two sales tax generating nurseries.
