LPDA stands for Localized Poor Drainage Area.  The Village of Downers Grove Illinois identified these areas as locations prone to flooding due to the topography of the land or land that is "bowl" shaped.  Storm water runoff that can not penetrate the ground tends to accumulate in LPDA's creating flooding.  LPDA's serve as natural detention basins to limit flooding in other areas of the Village.  LPDA's are not officially recognized by FEMA as regulatory flood plains, however the Village building codes regulate both LPDA's and flood plains similarly.   Am I in a LPDA? You can check the Village Drainage Control Map to see if your property is near a LPDA.  You can click here for more information:  http://www.downers.us/assets/production/doc_related_doc/file/243/Village_Drainage_Control_Map...

We are spending New Year's at our lake house in Keshena, Wisconsin on Legend Lake as we have for the past 3 years.  We are located about 30 miles NW of Green Bay, Wisconsin and they have had a record 59 inches of snow so far this year.  The scenery is absolutely beautiful and I decided to share a couple of photos with you.  I hope you enjoy them.   HAPPY NEW YEARS!  I hope 2009 is a year of health, happiness & many blessings.

It's the perfect home time to upgrade to a bigger home. The cost basis of stepping up in value to a bigger home has never had a better scenario for super buys. If you have a home you are selling or considering selling it really is a great time to sell your home and step up to a better home. Sure you maybe won't get the best price for your home but you will get the same price break on your next new home. Example let's say you have a home for sale for $350,000 and given the current market you get outsted 20% so it sells for $280,000. With that said you find a home that's much bigger for around $600,000 MINUS THE 20% it closes for $480,000.  www.panhomes.com has all your Downers Grove homes for sale.
