Gunworld gunshop & range formerly located in Bensenville, Il is seeking to open a new facility in Wood Dale. They were forced to close after almost 30 years due to the O'Hare expansion. Plans for new location include: Retail gun sales, 24 positionrange which will allow high-power rifle, full gunsmith shop, locker/storage rental, ammo loading, classrooms, & a virtual reality range for advanced training. Building under contract is at 660 Pond, Wood Dale Il 60191. Find it on mapquest.

Approval is to be voted on at the full City Counsil meeting this Thursday 4/17/08. Zoning Board has given their approval on 4/10/08. We face some resistance from those who think it will bring a danger to the town. This should not be an issue since the 30 year prior history of the business has shown this not to be the case. We can however use any sensibly stated support on how this business will bring additional revenue to the town for other businesses like gas, stores, resteraunts, etc. People wishing to address the City Counsel will need to do so during the citizen comment time at the very beginning of the meeting. There should be no public comment time when this comes up on the nights agenda, just the board members discussion & vote. Anyone wishing to give positive comments can also call during normal business hours prior to the meeting.

Meeting is to be at :
Wood Dale Municipal Building
404 N Wood Dale Rd
Wood Dale Il 60191
630 766-4900

Thanks in advance for any help, Bill
