Letter: Hoping for better plan for Fox River site

When I looked at the artist rendering in the Northwest Herald of the apartments proposed for the McHenry sewer plant site, I thought, “That doesn’t look too bad.” When I looked across the river from the site, I found the rendering quite deceptive.

1. The seawall was depicted at approximate 3-feet above the river level, not the 12-foot-plus that now exists.

2. The 4-and-a-half-story buildings would have to be higher than any of the trees along the river, or 50 feet or more tall, higher than any building that I know of along the river.

My kudos go to the aldermen for rejecting the McHenry Fox River “eye sore.”

Hopefully the property will have an aesthetically pleasing future.
