"I know people are well protected by our fire department, but I also know a lot of us don't think about making our house numbers visible. The whole idea of this plan would be about knowing your neighbors better, just as people used to a generation or two ago. It is nice to know when someone is ill or on vacation," said Rizzo.
Rizzo said building a better block would result in a better village. Kastberg said the plan would benefit the village.
"The idea makes great sense to me, and I know that village department heads would want to work with local residents. I can see this effort paying real dividends for residents," said Kastberg. "Each involved citizen is another pair of eyes watching out for the welfare of the village.""
