Stop NorthPoint is comprised of ordinary citizens living in Will County who have been working since 2017 to stop NorthPoint Development's Compass Business/Logistics industrial park. It was officially organized in 2020 as an LLC committed to pursuing legal action to stop the 3,000-acre intermodal warehouse facility proposed by NorthPoint Development between the villages of Elwood and Manhattan, in unincorporated Will County, Illinois.
We are Democrats, Republicans, and Independents; liberals and conservatives; blue collar and white collar; union and non-union; farmers, workers, teachers, urban and suburban professionals, veterans, environmentalists, elected officials, emergency responders, and local business people.
We are YOU... the concerned citizens of Will County who are joining together to say "enough is enough!"
Stop NorthPoint is dedicated to preserving Will County and all its treasures, including Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery and Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie, by fighting against the blight, safety issues, and reduced quality of life that results from this continual, reckless freight logistics development. Stop NorthPoint has established a legal fund for this fight and pledges full cooperation with other entities working to achieve our shared goal.
We are also with Just Say No to NorthPoint
Just Say No to NorthPoint is a Facebook group launched in 2017 by concerned Will County residents united by the desire to preserve their communities. Our grassroots effort has been committed to fighting NorthPoint Development on multiple fronts: calling and writing government officials; hosting informational community meetings; speaking at community zoning, planning, and board meetings; raising awareness by printing and distributing flyers and conducting door-to-door campaigns; submitting Freedom of Information Act requests to governmental bodies; coordinating with other community groups with common interests and goals; engaging media outlets; and more.
Stop NorthPoint is an evolution of the Just Say No to NorthPoint group with a singular purpose: to stop NorthPoint Development’s massive project using a coalition of legal effort. We are a limited liability corporation (LLC) intent on holding Joliet’s government accountable to area residents through our lawsuit, which is designed to stop NorthPoint from building Compass Global Logistics Hub (also known as Compass Business Park).
