Bulldog Ale House Coming to Bluestone Commons

The bar will move into space formerly occupied by Bluestone Bar and Grill, most recently by Prime Time Restaurant.

New Lenox Village Board members Monday pushed through a set of liquor licenses for a new bar with its sights set on Bluestone Commons—despite concerns from residents in the area.

Neighbors aren't exactly thrilled about the arrival of Bulldog Ale House, which will mark its territory at 2387 Joliet Highway. They've shared the area with a bar before, and told the board the business was nothing but disruptive.

One resident said she had inebriated strangers pounding on her door at 2 a.m., Sun-Times Media reports. 

Despite neighbors' concerns, trustees signed off on two liquor licenses for the business, one of which was needed to offer a beer garden. Mayor Tim Baldermann said he worked closely with the ale house's management to ensure what he called a “more conducive crowd.”

Closing time was also bumped up an hour earlier, to 1 a.m. Live music and an outside bar are prohibited.

Keep in mind new Lenox had a 60% rebate. Also many homes in Manhattan are hit with an extra tax I forget the name at this moment. My sister had a town home home worth maybe $150,000 and her tax bill is $7,000. I will get the name of the property tax.

SSA taxes for many subdivisions in manhattan. Basically it pays for infrastructure improvements. Instead making building pay they passed it on to home owners. It's quite pricey also.

I meant to say instead of making builder pay. Generally builders pay for all the roads, sewer, etc. The theory is if the builder had to pay then homes would cost more but with the market crash homes aren't worth jack
