The Stonewater development has provided an opportunity to improve conditions in Wonder Lake. The Stonewater development currently has 130 homes with residents living there and is expected to have approximately 3,500 homes and 10,000 new residents over the next 20 years. This development will not have lake rights; however, the agreement the Village negotiated with the developer will be able to provide water and sewage for not only Stonewater but the entire East side of Wonder Lake. In order to make that happen, the unincorporated areas around the lake will need to annex into the Village. To Read more, please download the Newsletter (pdf)
