Lincolnwood village trustees approved an ordinance Tuesday to amend a special use permit that allows Lincolnwood Wines and Spirits, 6929 N. Lincoln Ave., to display certain signs in storefront windows above the doorway area. The former special use permit prohibited all window signs and displays.
The new ordinance also allows the liquor store to use 360 feet of shelf space on the sales floor for the sale of alcohol, instead of the previously established 240 feet.
Also Tuesday, Mayor Gerald Turry announced the recipients of the Lincolnwood Excellence in Science Recognition certificates, which were awarded to 18 junior high and high school students who submitted science projects for a recent science fair held in Champaign, Ill.
The students recognized were Mitchell Byron, Sheryl Cherian, Valerie Fung, Brandon Gligor, Ariella Halevi, Anna Heins, Jensy Joseph, Hirrah Khatri, Konstantine Kalaras, Suha Mohinddin, Katrina Nickell, Matthew Nikolic, Shana Nissan, Barry Ruderman, Jordan Shaker, Jamie Suh, Rachel Traisman and Andy Tran.
