Main Street Showcase

Yesterday, I spent the day in the atrium of the Thompson Center promoting Elgin. Main Street representatives from Batavia, Genoa, Libertyville, Lombard, Pontiac, Prophetstown and Waukegan were spreading the word that there is life in the downtowns of cities of all sizes.

Some of the reasons people stopped to chat.
  • Three people asked about the Elgin Symphony Orchestra and took brochures (None of them knew we had a symphony)
  • One was considering a move to Elgin and another visitor's daughter had just moved here.
  • Two people had recently stopped in Elgin while biking.
  • A couple from South Elgin commented on the improvements.
