LANSING | Officials acknowledged the retirement of a longtime member of the village’s Planning and Zoning Board.
The Village Board used their meeting Tuesday to present a plaque to retiring Zoning Board member Robert Necastro, who voluntarily stepped down from his post.
He said he believes, “it is time for other people to step up, present new ideas” for Lansing.
Village President Norm Abbott said Necastro will be missed. “If in the future (he) want(s) to come back, (he) should give me a call.”
To which Necastro quipped, “I’ll always be available, when I’m not out golfing.”
Necastro has also served on the village’s Housing Authority as well as the South Suburban College Foundation, which helps raise money for scholarships for students at the South Holland-based school. He was a senior vice president at United Trust Bank.
Also on Tuesday, the Village Board voted 6-0 to reappoint Brian Hardy to the Planning and Zoning Board.
