Plans Move Forward for Elmhurst Dog Park

by Thomas Makinney


Tails are wagging across Elmhurst since the Park District moved one step closer to finalizing plans for a dog park in south Elmhurst. The board of commissioners recently approved a design plan for the potential park to be located on 3.4 acres off Old York Road on a former trailer park property.

Following a July 26 open house for residents to view proposed designs, the Park District and Upland Design of Plainfield (which has been analyzing the site, collecting public input, and preparing preliminary designs) released its dog site park site analysis.

Plans for the dog park include separate areas for big and small dogs, a water feature, a walking path within the park, and a shade structure as well as seating. A paid permit will be required to use the dog park.

A tentative cost estimate of close to $2 million would include clearing brush and dead trees; removing pavement, a small office building, and a garage; and construction costs of the actual park. Those numbers are not firm, however, and will likely change once plans are finalized and bids go out. The park district will most likely find additional sources of revenue (such as partnerships, grants, or even a referendum) to offset the costs.

No timeframe has been set for construction to begin. Cost will likely play a large factor in how quickly it can go constructed.

The push for a dog park came about after the community showed interest in the Vision 2020 Community Needs Assessment survey.

Here at Gracik Makinney, we’re all dog lovers and thrilled that Elmhurst is making plans for pups to play and romp off leash. 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 Considering Rooftop Decks

by Thomas Makinney

Rooftop bars, restaurants, and other sky-high amenities could be coming to Elmhurst soon. The city council voted last week to send the idea of rooftop decks to the Zoning and Planning Commission who will open up the possibility in a series of public hearings.

The possibilities for what to put on rooftops range from bars and restaurants to recreational/fitness spaces, dog runs, fire pits, community gathering sites, and even swimming pools.

The city council’s current recommendations for rooftop amenity decks include a required three-foot setback on all sides from exterior walls for safety reasons, a height limit of 15 feet, and a space limit of 25 percent of the roof footprint. The decks would have to meet city building codes and receive engineering approval.

Hours of operation for rooftop businesses would follow the same guidelines as Elmhurst beer gardens, and they would be subject to the same rules on noise and lighting.

Developers approached the city in June with the idea of having amenity decks on downtown buildings after several businesses inquired about using their roofs as gathering spaces. Currently, only structures used for housing mechanical equipment can be on the rooftop, and any of these structures, including chimneys, cannot extend more than 15 feet above the allowable building height restriction.

Among the decisions still to be determined is where the rooftop structures could be located, but they could potentially be allowed throughout Elmhurst.  The decks are only being considered for commercial and multi-unit buildings, although planners haven’t ruled out the possibility of allowing them on single-family residences.

The zoning and planning commission hasn’t yet set a date for public hearings.

Here at Gracik Makinney Group, we love how our city expands and adapts to the needs and wants of residents. As our downtown continues to flourish, rooftop decks are yet another way to soak up all we have to offer.

Elmhurst District 205 Earns A+ Rating

by Thomas Makinney

We never had any doubt, but a recent study confirms: Elmhurst schools are in one of the best districts in the state.

District 205 ranked in the top 10 school districts in Illinois in a recent study compiled by Niche. The report also gave the district a coveted A+ rating.

Niche is a data-analyzing company that researches and ranks U.S. colleges, schools, neighborhoods, and companies. For the school survey, rankings were based on data from the U.S. Department of Education’s reports on test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, and teacher quality as well as reviews from parents and students.

All elementary and middle schools in Elmhurst received a rating in the “A” range, while York received an A+ rating as did the district as a whole.

The district ranked 9th in Illinois for best school districts, 13th for best school districts for athletes, and 22nd for best places to teach.

According to the survey, the top five districts in Illinois are Community High School District 128 in Libertyville, New Trier Township High School District 203, Naperville Community Unit School District 203, Barrington Community Unit School District 220, and Indian Prairie Community Unit School District 204.

Here at Gracik Makinney Group, we recognize that our great schools are the foundation of our community, and we’re proud that they are consistently ranked among the best. For more information about living in Elmhurst, contact us at (630) 441-5570 or visit www.gmregroup.com.

Windy City Ninjas Comes to Elmhurst!

by Thomas Makinney


The perennially popular summer TV “American Ninja Warriors” is coming to life in Elmhurst! Kids and families can now experience the fun and thrills (and amazing workout) by jumping, climbing, leaping, swing, and balancing through an action-packed obstacle course.

Windy City Ninjas opened its 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Elmhurst last week. This is the second location following the popular obstacle course gym in Chicago.

Owner Tom Rhomberg started Windy City Ninjas to help children who may not otherwise be engaged in organized sports a fun alternative for fitness. Although anyone, athletes included, will benefit from the self-confidence and cross-training that an obstacle workout encompasses.

The facility offers structured 55-min. classes for ages 2-15, which are broken down by age group. Similar to the TV show, kids complete multiple circuits focused on specific areas. They rotate stations every 12-15 min. to work on different skills, such as strength, agility, and endurance, but each station packs fun along with exercise.

During the last 10 minutes of each class, students tackle a full obstacle course, which varies each week for variety and allows kids to get a sense of accomplishment at how much they are improving.

The gym also offers adult classes as well as a Family Fun Night every other Friday evening, where parents and kids can compete and play together. There is also an Open Gym on the weekends, which allows full access to the facility. In addition, kids can host 80-min birthday parties that includes an instructor and pizza and cake.

Windy City Ninjas is located at 684 W. Lake St. To find out more, including class times and pricing, visit www.windycityninjas.com.

Here at Gracik Makinney Group, we love seeing new businesses open up, and this is a fresh take on traditional fitness and sports training. To find out more about other exciting happenings in Elmhurst, call us at (630) 441-5570 or visit www.gmregroup.com.
