As a long time business owner in Arlington Heights, I sympathize with the Heller Lumber family in regards to the TIF situation.

The Heller family business has been an integral part of in making Arlington Heights what it is today. They are one of the few remaining businesses that have actually built this town, their products literally put the roof over the heads of countless Arlington Heights residents.

In their 90+ years of doing business with this community, the Hellers and Heller Lumber have earned a reputation of honesty, respect and helpfulness to their customers. They have been active in and supportive of many local organizations. They are part of the fabric of Arlington Heights, something we won't get if we are only left with big box stores to supply our builders and homeowners.

Our support is not limited to Heller Lumber, but to all the other established Hickory Avenue businesses, including the Knights of Columbus, Holy Rosary Council. Please consider a way to accommodate these long established businesses as well as the fallout of losing a business that has been an integral part of the building of this town.

I am asking for the village board to make a favorable decision for these businesses and live the motto of Arlington Heights, "The City of Good Neighbors".

John W. Glueckert, Sr.
