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.

Elmhurst Presents Subarea Plans to Residents

by Thomas Makinney

Do you know what Elmhurst’s subareas are? Do you have an opinion on how to improve and/or preserve them?
 
Plans for five business zones in Elmhurst, dubbed “subareas,” were presented at an open house last week, and they are impressive. Elmhurst planners, consultants, and residents have been working for a year to brainstorm and draft proposals for the zones, analyzing their strengths and challenges regarding transportation, infrastructure, character, land use, and a sense of place. Planners will then draw up a set of goals for each area so private and public-sector improvements can take advantage of assets.
 
The subareas being evaluated include:
·      Lake Street, west of York Street
·      The intersection of North Ave. and Route 83
·      The block northwest of the intersection of First and York streets
·      The blocks surrounding York and Valette streets
·      The district bounded by Butterfield Road, Roosevelt Road, and York Street
 
To read about and visualize some of the recommendations and suggestions, visit https://www.elmhurst.org/1555/Elmhurst-Subarea-Plans and read the draft plan. Comments will be reviewed through May 18.
 
You can also visit https://map.social/Community.php?CommunityID=121 and add comments. The map graphically shows which areas are considered community assets and which ones residents/planners feel have safety hazards or room for development.
 
 
Community outreach has been an important part of the process and there has been extensive outreach to the public to drive vision and policy recommendations.
 
The process has been long and ongoing. Planning began a year ago with an anticipated completion date in 2018. Final plans will be approved by the Zoning and Planning Commission and City Council.
 
We love how Elmhurst is constantly striving to improve itself and how residents are included in the decision making. To find out more about what makes our city such a great place to live, call us at (630-441-5570 or visit our website www.gmregroup.com.
