James, president at Edward R. James Companies. “We are very appreciative of the community input, the guidance from village staff and, of course, the support of the commissions and village trustees in selecting our team and approving our plan for Westgate. We feel the approved plan reflects a lot of collaboration and changes in response to community concerns and input.”
