Hammond Council Gives $3.5M to Flossmoor Brewery, Virtually Closes Aquavor

23 Jul

gazhdr

July 22, 2013:  One nightclub is fighting the City for its survival as the Hammond City Council gave $3.5 Million to a brewpub to open.  Aquavor Nightclub remains open for business but the City has already placed No Parking after 11 PM signs all around the business.

The Hammond City Council gave final approval tonight to a Development Agreement with Hammond Station Restaurant and Brewery tonight.  Although the agreement was not available for review at the meeting, council members have previously stated that the Brewery would receive $3.5 Million to assist in construction of the estimated $10M facility.  Council Member Janet Venecz praised the Flossmoor location operated by the same company.  She stated she had visited the area around Christmas and was very impressed by the area.  Other councilman sang the praises of the proposed development, indicating it would be a jump start for development in the area.

Councilman Higgs was the sole member to question the project, although he ultimately voted in favor of it.  Higgs questioned why other areas of the City were not being developed, including the Woodmar Mall area.  Higgs also expressed concern over the plan by the developers to address hiring of minorities.  Construction is expected to begin as early as September.

There was no discussion as to how this subsidy to a restaurant/bar would affect struggling businesses in Hammond.  A copy of the development plan should be available for review by tomorrow and the Gazette will update this story at that time.

In other action, the City Council delayed action on a proposed ordinance that would ban parking in City lots after 11:00 p.m.  Despite this, signs have already been placed in the parking lots near downtown Hammond’s Aquavor Nightclub.  Club managers were present at the meeting but left when they saw the ordinance was not on the agenda.  They have repeatedly stated that this would close the nightclub which was once popular with City staff and politically connected individuals.  Aquavor remains open at this time.  You can find them on Facebook or at
