Mayor Mike can you work at getting another fitness center into Plainfield. It would be nice to have A LA fitness, lifetime fitness or even a Charter Fitness closer to home. So much vacant land down RT 30 between 135th and Lockport St. Also what about all the farm land for sale down Drauden RD between Rt 126 and Renwick Rd. work to get some businesses a tax break so could get big business into the central area of Plainfield.
