Hazel Crest opposes Calumet Country Club redevelopment plan

The village of Hazel Crest issued a statement Tuesday night strongly opposing the proposed redevelopment of the former Calumet Country Club into a trucking distribution center and Homewood's settlement agreement with developer Diversified Partners.

After a special meeting of the board of trustees, Hazel Crest Mayor Vernard Alsberry Jr. released a video version of the statement.
