Plans are underway for Elmhurst dog park

by Thomas Makinney

Elmhurst is preparing to unleash the hounds.
 
The park district has begun plans for an off-leash dog park at its recently acquired property at 0S761 Old York Road.
 
Upland Design of Plainfield will begin analyzing the site, collecting public input, and preparing preliminary designs. The park district hopes to have an idea of what they propose sometime in August.
 
The dog park is the result of the park district’s Vision 2020 survey, which identified off-leash dog parks, walking trails, and natural areas as high outdoor facility priorities.
 
The park district acquired the 3.41 acres in Nov. in exchange for the 2.9 acres of Golden Meadows Park, which will be used by the city for off-site storm water detention to relieve residential flooding issues in that neighborhood.
 
The property currently includes a small office building and a garage. It’s too soon to tell what the proposed cost will be, as much of that depends on what features the park will offer. Suggestions include separate areas for large and small dogs, type of surface, what trees (if any) need to be removed, and whether it will include water features.
 
Upland has already begun studying the property and gathering input. The district plans to have opportunities throughout the summer for residents to give their input. These will likely include open houses and online surveys.
 
Elmhurst is already a city with numerous parks (23 to be exact!) and a dog park will be a welcome addition. For more information about the many benefits of living in our city, please call us at (630) 441-5570 or reach out through our website, www.gmregroup.com.

Elmhurst Trolley Returns for Free Rides All Summer

by Thomas Makinney


 
If you’re looking for a fun way to explore Elmhurst this summer without worrying about parking or hoofing it in the heat, the Elmhurst Trolley is back in action to help you out!
 
This is the fourth season for the trolley, which makes a 30-minute loop and runs on Fridays and Saturdays from noon to midnight.
 
Hop on and off to visit the museums, grab a bite to eat, take in a movie, or do some shopping. The trolley is free and you don’t even need a ticket.
 
There are six stops throughout town, connecting downtown Elmhurst with the Spring Road business district and the York and Vallette business district. Each stop is marked by an Explore Elmhurst sign and has nearby parking. The trolley is equipped with a GPS so riders can visit ExploreElmhurst.com and track the location.
 
As if that weren’t enough, the sounds of the Elmhurst College Jazz Band are piped in, and a historical narrative points out highlights of the city.
 
The trolley is in operation from June 1–September 15. It is handicapped accessible and ADA compliant. Collapsible strollers are welcome if they fit in the seating area, however onboard storage is unavailable and as such, no bikes are allowed.
 
The trolley stops at the following intersections:
Stop 1—York and Park
Stop 2—York and Schiller
Stop 3—Second and Addison
Stop 4—Cottage Hill and Virginia
Stop 5—Spring Road and the Illinois Prairie Path
Stop 6—York and Vallette
 
For more information on the trolley and other summer events, visit ExploreElmhurst.com.
 
For more information about life in Elmhurst and the many benefits we offer, call us at (630) 441-5570 or visit our website, www.gmregroup.com.

Plentiful Parks in Elmhurst, Few "Park Deserts"

by Thomas Makinney


This time of year it’s hard not to notice all of Elmhurst’s beautiful parks. Whether you’re walking, biking, jogging, watching a game, or just relaxing, parks are a prominent part of living in Elmhurst. 

There are 23 parks in Elmhurst with 327 total acreage for people to enjoy, which is well above the national average. In fact, 83 percent of our residents live within a 10-minute walk of a park compared with the national average of 55%.

The city is flanked by Eldridge Park in the south and Berens Park in the north with prominent Wilder Park in the center. We have running trails and bike paths, creeks and fountains, and miles of fields for every kind of sport. 

Having easy access to parks is not only fun but is linked with lower body mass index and reduced rate of obesity. And children’s use of parks increases by a whopping 400% when parks are closer to home.

The Trust for Public Land released data recently analyzing Americans current access to parks in cities, towns, and communities.  They found that one in three Americans don’t have a park or green space within a 10-minute walk of their home. Elmhurst residents fare much better, but 8,305 still live in a “park desert.”

To get a better idea of which neighborhoods fare on the better or worse end of the scale, the organization put together this map. By scrolling down to the button labeled “Deep Dive,” you can zoom in on neighborhoods.  The best locations for new park development are indicated by the blue-circled numbers, which are then ranked by the impact a park would make on a neighborhood.

The Trust mapped every park in every urban municipality in the country, the first time such extensive park data has been compiled in such a way. Their hope is that city planners, mayors, and recreation departments will use the tool to ensure better access to parks and continue to make green space a priority in the future.

Elmhurst’s beautiful and abundant parks are part of the city’s charm. We love the priority our city places in parks, and we’re confident that that consideration will continue.

D205 Looks to the Future with Master Facility Plan

by Thomas Makinney


To best anticipate upcoming needs, District 205 is creating a Master Facility Plan (MFP) to focus on educational needs—such as STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs, all-day kindergarten, and future-ready learning—as well as maintenance and facility needs (such as at Lincoln and Field schools) and possible re-districting.

 
The plan is a continuation of Focus 205, a 2015 collaboration between the community and the district. The board of education hopes that developing a master plan will provide a map for ensuring commitment to future-ready learning, equal access to technology, and equitable learning spaces in all schools.
 
Planners divided the facility improvement suggestions into four categories: two supporting basic maintenance needs and two featuring modifications/improvements needed for all-day kindergarten and to create future-ready learning spaces. There are a total of eight proposed scenarios.
 
The board previewed the presentation at its May 8 meeting and will be sharing the MFP draft with the community at a series of meetings to get input and hear feedback.
 
All meetings will cover the same content. Two meetings were held earlier in the week at York High School and Churchville Middle Schools. Upcoming meetings include:
  • Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 7 – 9 PM, Bryan Middle School
  • Wednesday, May 30, 2018, 7 – 9 PM, Sandburg Middle School
 
School-specific informational sessions will also be held. Jefferson, Fischer, Churchville, Hawthorne, and Jackson have held theirs already. The following are still on the calendar:
  • Wednesday, May 16, Jackson - 6:00 PM
  • Wednesday, May 23, Bryan 6:15 PM
  • Thursday, May 24, Emerson - 8:30 AM vio
  • Wednesday, May 30 Sandburg 6:15 PM
 
Residents of Elmhurst are encouraged to attend and learn about our schools’ future plans. Having strong schools is a hallmark of our community, and we are so proud of the continuing commitment to excellence.
