The construction of the station, with adequate facilities, awaits the vacation by the Village Board of a small strip of an unpaved dead-end street and certain unused alleys entirely surrounded by real estate of the Railroad Company.
The Company is not asking for a franchise. It has that NOW. It wants the co-operation of the village and the vacation of the land aforesaid, to enable it to use, to the best advantage of all, the property and the rights it already has, so as to place in Wilmette a station and terminal that shall be in keeping with the high-grade improvements elsewhere in the village.
The property is to be surrounded by an artistic concrete fence, illuminated at night; and just inside of the fence rows of trees or shrubbery will be planted, to make the whole plan pleasing and attractive. The company believes that a high-grade, artistic terminal, will attract the better purchasers of homes and maintain the high standard of improvements.
