Highland Park wants to keep medical pot business low key
The City of Highland Park can’t bar a medical marijuana dispensary from setting up shop in town, but it’s proposing to ban terms like marijuana, cannabis, weed and pot on signs identifying the business. Senior planner Linda Sloan said there’s no reason for a medical marijuana dispensary to promote itself to drive- or walk-by traffic because all eligible patients will be assigned to a particular dispensary where they must obtain their product. Sloan also is recommending that Highland Park require that product deliveries take place in an enclosed garage and that trash bins be located indoors to eliminate the temptation for “dumpster diving.”

Deerpath, Waukegan Rd. construction in full swing for new Lake Forest Hospital
Construction on Deerpath in Lake Forest, which has shifted traffic near the hospital entrance, has motorists on alert. Large orange-and-white-striped barrels, merge signs and yellow caution tape funnel drivers into a temporarily narrower lane just west of the viaduct under Route 41. Likewise, work has begun on a new Waukegan Road entrance and exit to the 160-acre campus at 660 N. Westmoreland Road. The intersection improvements are touted as the “first major step” in the revitalization of the Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital campus by both city and hospital leaders.
