Council Approves 2014-19 Community Investment Plan
Normal Town Council members unanimously approved the Community Investment Plan expenditures for fiscal years 2014 through 2019. The Community Investment Plan is a document intended to assist Town Council members in prioritizing major capital investments. Annually in December, Town Staff propose a mix of capital projects needing the Council’s attention over the next five years.
The proposed Capital Investment Plan for 2014-2019 includes 132 capital projects that are to be completed during a six-year time frame, starting in the current fiscal year. The Town proposes having $60,899,939 available for use on projects needing the Town’s attention – that figure is up 11.4 percent from what the Town proposed spending in the Capital Investment Plan it rolled out last year for 2013-2018.
In total during FY 2013-2018, the Town has $54,666,026 available to use on projects needing the Town’s attention. That figure was an increase of 17 percent from the Capital Investment Plan for fiscal years 2012-2017.
Under the 2014-2019 CIP, items in the categories of Utility Service and Transportation will receive the biggest allotments of money for projects needing attention. Utility service expenditures will account for 46 percent of money spent under the plan, going toward items primarily related to a number of water main replacement jobs. Transportation-related matters made up the next largest area where monies will be concentrated, accounting for 23 percent of the items on the CIP. Items on that agenda include numerous traffic signal upgrades.
Also on the list is $10.5 million in capital funds to construct a new fire station to replace Fire Station #2 at 604 N. Adelaide St., as well as construction of an overhead walkway for high speed rail commuters so that both of the railroad tracks at Uptown Station can begin to be utilized for high speed rail in next few years.
“These projects will be integrated into the fiscal year 2014 budget,” City Manager Mark Peterson told Council members, all of whom except Sonja Reece, were present at the session. Peterson said the Town was looking to schedule the Council’s annual budget work session for early January.
Employment Agreement With Broadband Network Approved: An omnibus agenda item concerning an employment agreement with Central Illinois Regional Broadband Network (CIBRN). In June, the Town agreed to become a formal member of CIBRN, LLC, a limited liability company responsible for owning and operating the regional broadband network. CIBRN assets will be transferred to Illinois State University. CIBRN’s primary goal is “to help enhance broadband to the region. It would expand bandwidth and capacity.
Peterson told Council members a staff of three is needed to CIBRN, LLC at this time to get the network going as it is due to begin service on Jan. 1. Employees needed at this stage of the operation are: An executive director; A technical support staffer, and an administrative assistant.
“The Town is the employing agency, but CIRBN will pay the Town back for expenses,” Peterson told Council members. He said the Town’s involvement with CIBRN is a “cost neutral” situation, in part because the Town is not charging CIBRN any fees related to administrative costs.
Once hired, CIBRN’s executive director will report to a four-person board of directors. The board of directors will consist of Peterson; Bloomington Ward 8 Alderman Rob Fazzini; Dr. Daniel Layzell, Vice President for Finance and Planning at ISU; and Robert D. Widmer, President of Heartland Community College.
Omnibus Agenda Items Approved: Omnibus agenda items approved by the Council included:
Approval of minutes of the Public Hearing of Nov. 18, 2013.
Approval of minutes of the regular meeting held Nov. 18, 2013.
Approval of Town of Normal expenditures for payment as of Nov. 27, 2013.
A motion to approve the Town meeting calendar for the year 2014.
A motion ratifying the purchase of a replacement pump for the Airport Rd. sanitary sewer lift station from Des Moines, Iowa-based Electric Pump in the amount of $67,942 and authorizing an associated budget adjustment.
A motion to award the bid for a trailer mounted hydraulic powered valve maintenance and vacuum unit from Lincolnshire, Ill.-based E. H. Wachs at a cost of $66,980.
An ordinance conditionally and partially approving the final plat of the Community Cancer Center subdivision in the Town of Normal by expedited process and vacating Custer Court and storm and sanitary sewer easement as described on the final plat.
Tour three historic mansions for one price during Christmas at the Mansions’ evening tours, December 14
A rare treat is being offered the evening of Saturday, December 14 when three of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois’ historic mansions will feature evening holiday tours and free shuttle transportation for one low price. Tickets for the gala event are on sale as of Nov. 1, 2013. Funds raised will benefit the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site and Ewing Manor, which are 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit cultural organizations.
Visitors may tour the homes on Saturday, December 14 from either 2 to 5 p.m. or 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets for the tours are $10 per person in advance and may be purchased at Casey’s Garden Shop, The Garlic Press, Schnucks Supermarkets (Normal & Bloomington locations), the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site and online at the mansion’s website: www.daviddavismansion.org. Tickets are $12 per person the day of the event.
NEW THIS YEAR: Visitors will be able to tour Ewing Manor—Bloomington’s only “castle”—along with the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site and a new Mystery Mansion. The private bedrooms and office once occupied by the Ewing family will be decorated for Christmas & open to the public for the first time. Visitors will also be able to view two oil portraits of Hazle Buck Ewing and her mother which will also be on exhibit for the first time. There will be a horse in the family stable, a vintage automobile in the Manor’s garage, and the Manor will also be specially lighted outside. Ewing Manor is located at 48 Sunset Rd., Bloomington, and the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site, at 1000 Monroe Dr., Bloomington.
A bit of Downton Abbey will be on display at the David Davis Mansion State Historic Site this year. The home’s dining room tree will be covered with the same types of rare, imported, German-made ornaments that were featured on the Downton Abbey tree during the Christmas episodes of the hit PBS series. Intricate, hand-painted, glass ornaments, imported from Germany and sold by a small company in England, were handpicked to appear on the award-winning show. According to the company’s owner, “These decorations are all hand-crafted and each one is a little work of art in its own right.” Downton Abbey’s producers purchased around 1,000 of the festive trimmings, including miniature birds and figurines, because they were exactly the same as those used in 1919 – the year when the drama’s Christmas specials were set. “The show’s producers went to great lengths to make sure everything was as authentic as possible.” The Davis Mansion has purchased approximately $2,000 worth of these rare ornaments from this British business for exhibit in the mansion during the 2013 Christmas tours. A vintage tree displaying some of the ornaments will also be raffled off to a lucky winner.
The Davis Mansion’s Christmas decorations are also featured in the 2013 holiday issue of Victorian Homes, a national publication devoted to the history, preservation, decoration and construction of Victorian homes.
This year, four shuttle buses will transport visitors continuously to all three mansions. Visitors may begin their tour by parking either on the Davis Mansion grounds at 1000 Monroe Dr. in Bloomington or in the St John’s Church Parking lot, 1617 E. Emerson St., Bloomington (enter from E. Emerson St.). For those who will not be taking the shuttle bus, directions and maps to all three mansions will be available at Ewing Manor and the Davis Mansion the night of the event.
The Davis Mansion and Ewing Manor will be festooned with vintage Christmas decorations and will feature special Christmas foods and beverages. The David Davis Mansion will also offer a choice of tasty Christmas treats donated by Schnuck’s Supermarkets, Lancasters Fine Dining Restaurant, Great Harvest Bread Company, Janet’s Cakes and the Garlic Press. Two Blokes and a Bus will be parked on the grounds of Ewing Manor and will be selling food to visitors during the evening. The Davis Mansion tour will also feature seasonal music and costumed guides, who will show visitors what a typical Victorian Christmas celebration was like during the Gilded Age. Ewing Manor will feature theatrical skits about the life of Hazel Buck Ewing, who was born on December 25.
Christmas at the Mansions is a fundraising event benefiting the David Davis Mansion Foundation, Ewing Manor, and a community charity designated by the owners of the mystery mansion. The David Davis Mansion Foundation will use the funds raised to help the David Davis Mansion provide new educational programs that support historic preservation and interpretation. Ewing Manor will use its funds to support education and preservation efforts at the Manor.
2013 Sponsors for the event are: Supporting: Commerce Bank; Downtown Bloomington Association; StarNet Digital; and WJBC AM 1230 and FM 93.7. Corporate sponsors are: The VEIN Specialists; Bridgestone, America’s Tire Operations, LLC; Party Palace Rental; and Nicor Gas. Signature Sponsor is: Robert J. Lenz, Attorney.
For more information on the December 14 tours, please call the David Davis Mansion at: (309) 828-1084 or visit: www.ChristmasAtTheMansions.com. Also find Judge David Davis on Facebook.
The Victorian-style David Davis Mansion State Historic Site, known by the family as Clover Lawn, was built in 1872 for U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Davis and his wife, Sarah. The David Davis Mansion State Historic Site is administered by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. For more information, visit www.daviddavismansion.org
Ewing Cultural Center is owned and operated by the Illinois State University Foundation. The home’s original owner, Hazle Buck Ewing, lived at the manor from 1929 until her death in 1969. She bequeathed the residence to the ISU Foundation, with the understanding that the home would serve as a center for promoting intercultural understanding.

Conservation Stewardship Applications Available
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is opening the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) for new enrollments for federal fiscal year 2014. Starting today through Jan. 17, 2014, producers interested in participating in the program can submit applications to NRCS.
“Through the Conservation Stewardship Program, farmers and forest landowners are going the extra mile to conserve our nation’s resources,” NRCS State Conservationist for Illinois Ivan Dozier said. “Through their conservation actions, they ensure their operations are more productive and sustainable over the long run.”
The CSP is an important Farm Bill conservation program that helps established conservation stewards take their level of natural resource management up to the next level. This improves both agricultural production and provides valuable conservation benefits, such as cleaner water, healthier soils, and better wildlife habitat.
Dozier said this sign-up opportunity is another example of USDA’s comprehensive focus on promoting environmental conservation and strengthening the rural economy, and it is a reminder that a new Food, Farm and Jobs Bill is pivotal to continue these efforts. CSP is now in its fifth year and so far, NRCS has partnered with producers to enroll more than 59 million acres across the nation.
The program emphasizes conservation performance—producers earn higher payments for higher performance. In CSP, producers install conservation enhancements to make positive changes in soil quality, soil erosion, water quality, water quantity, air quality, plant resources, animal resources, and energy.
Some popular enhancements used by farmers in Illinois include:
• Use of drift reducing nozzles, low pressures, lower boom height and adjuvants to reduce pesticide drift;
• Plant tissue testing and analysis to improve nitrogen management;
• Planting of cover crops to break up soil compaction or scavenge residual nitrogen.
Eligible landowners and operators in all states and territories can enroll in CSP through January 17th to be eligible during the 2014 federal fiscal year. While local NRCS offices accept CSP applications year round, NRCS evaluates applications during announced ranking periods.
To be eligible for this year’s enrollment, producers must have applications submitted to NRCS by the closing date. A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help producers determine if the program is suitable for their operation. The checklist highlights basic information about CSP eligibility requirements, stewardship threshold requirements and payment types.
Learn more about CSP by visiting the NRCS website www.il.nrcs.usda.gov or contacting teams at the local NRCS field office.

Happy Holidays From Illinois Wesleyan
The holiday season is right around the corner, and Illinois Wesleyan University has several events planned to put the community in the spirit of cheer. No matter what tradition your family celebrates in the winter months, everyone can enjoy the togetherness IWU promotes all year round.
The Hanukkah Dinner, which will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Memorial Center, Turfler Room (104 University St., Bloomington), will kick off the season’s events. The dinner, sponsored by IWU Hillel, commemorates the recapture of the Jewish temple from the Syrians in 165 BCE by a Jewish group called the Maccabees. The Maccabees rededicated their temple to God, but only had enough oil to light the temple lamps for one night. The oil lasted for eight days, allowing the Maccabees to prepare more oil. Every year, Jewish families celebrate the eight days of Hanukkah by lighting one candle on the menorah, a particular kind of candelabra, each night and by exchanging gifts.
“A Messiah Sing-A-Long” will be held in Evelyn Chapel (1301 Park St., Bloomington) on Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Conductor of the University Choir Jonathan Green, provost and dean of faculty, and organist Susan Klotzbach will assist student musicians in leading the song service. The event is part of the “First Wednesday” Chapel Series and will include a lunch following the program with discussion about the enduring cultural and spiritual impact of Handel’s Messiah.
On Thursday, Dec. 5 from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Memorial Center, Turfler Room (104 University St., Bloomington), the Black Student Union invites the campus community to take part in the Kwanzaa Dinner. Celebrated each year from December 26 to January 1, Kwanzaa is an African-American and Pan-African holiday with origins in the first harvest celebrations of Africa. In Swahili, the most widely spoken African language, Kwanzaa means “first fruits.” This holiday celebrates family community and culture through “The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa,” which translate in English to unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.
The School of Music will give a Christmas Choral Concert on Sunday, December 8 from 3-4:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity Church (704 N. Main St., Bloomington). The concert is free and open to the public.
Evelyn Chapel’s second annual “Light the Night: A Multicultural Celebration of the Season of Light” service will be held Sunday, December 8 from 8 -10 p.m. This program, which features stories, music and traditions of Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and more, is designed to bring people from different backgrounds together for one communal holiday celebration. Following the service, attendees are invited to walk by candlelight to the Joyce G. Eichhorn Ames School of Art Building (6 Ames Plaza West, Bloomington), atrium for hot cocoa and cookies. The event, sponsored by Evelyn Chapel and the Multifaith Ambassadors, is free and open to the public.
On Monday, December 9 at 6 p.m., IWU’s holiday events will come to a close as the Madrigal Dinner commences in the Young Main Lounge of the Memorial Center (104 E. University Ave., Bloomington). Anyone who wishes to join the Madrigals for a night of holiday celebration can attend the banquet-style dinner, which will feature performances by the IWU Madrigals Singers.
