Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is at risk from more Joliet trucks

Our Supporters

Commander Kevin Pomykala, USN Retired

Stone City VFW Post 2199

"What NorthPoint proposes to do next to our treasured cemetery is a disgrace to all veterans. Anyone who votes yes to this project should expect to get a no vote for their reelection from the Joliet veterans.”

Allen Lynch

Allen Lynch

The only living Medal of Honor recipient in Illinois

"No American would countenance the building of an industrial park next to Arlington National Cemetery. This is no different. We have joined this suit via the Allen Lynch Medal of Honor Foundation because we have one, singular constituency: our living and fallen comrades. We consider this final resting place as sacred, inviolable and worthy of our efforts to mitigate it being defiled as it has been. It doesn't matter if it's Arlington or Abraham Lincoln, they are the same."

Larry Walsh, Sr.

the late Will County Executive

“After reviewing the current and past plans, NorthPoint Development would undoubtedly destroy our area. Recklessly approving this project would cause monumental consequenes, inhibit future rowth, and cause irrepreable damage to our county ... If NorthPoint is successful, it will mark the beginning of the end of Will County as we know it.”

Fraternal Order of Police Labor Union

Will County Sheriff’s Department

“In the strongest language we urge caution because of the impact to public safety, the lack of infrastructure to support the warehouse trucking facility in terms of roads, and the lack of revenue its going to generate to cover the costs.”

Mark Schneidewind

Will County Farm Bureau

“The Will County Farm Bureau strongly opposes forced annexation and condemnation of land.”

Manhattan School District 114

Board of Education

"The proposed industrial development by NorthPoint is not in the best interest of Manhattan School District 114, its students, or its citizens"

Tribune Op-ed: Joliet-area residents have good reason to oppose NorthPoint development

The path of Illinois Route 53 in Elwood, just south of Joliet, is bucolic. Running along the east side of the road, travelers spot bison grazing at the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie. Farm fields and open space grace historic Route 66 as it moves through Will County. It is the road traveled by thousands of veterans to their final resting place at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, the country’s second largest national cemetery. ... Read more →
