Sid Pearce, 217 Ridge Road, North Aurora – addressed the Board regarding the construction times for the new development at the former Fox Valley Country Club property. Pearce stated that construction starts as early as 5:30 a.m. and goes until 9:00 p.m. Pearce asked the Board to reconsider the allowable construction times to cut down on the noise that the residents are currently subject to. Mayor Berman said that the Village has allowed the work times so that the developer can complete the work in the shortest amount of time. Construction equipment and trucks are on the north end of Banbury and Route 25 so they do not drive by the homes. Berman noted that the Village ordinance is not any different than the surrounding communities. Trustee Guethle asked if construction is continuing until 9 pm. Village Administrator Steve Bosco said that currently the developer is trying to get all of the underground work completed. They will only be able to pave next week since the asphalt companies will be closing down. Staff has been working with them to keep the truck traffic away from Ridge Road. Paving should be done as soon as Wednesday and when this month is over, the noise will subside substantially. Bosco noted that as far as starting construction at 5:30 a.m., the Village has contacted D.R. Horton to inform them that work cannot begin until 6:00 a.m. The Village is also having the police go to the site to make sure work does not start early. Pearce asked that the Village consider changing the current times allowed for construction.
