Downtown Elgin Walk and Talk Slated for August 23

On Tuesday, August 23, the Elgin Police Department will conduct a "Walk and Talk" through the downtown Elgin business district from 2-4PM. The purpose of the Walk and Talk is for officers and members of the command staff to meet members of the downtown Elgin community and seek input regarding any issues facing downtown business owners and residents. Members of city staff, including code enforcement, will also be available to address questions or concerns. The walk will commence in front of the DNA office at 2 Douglas Avenue, where several groups will be formed to walk through the various areas in the downtown.

Any downtown business owner or resident who would like to participate in the walk should contact Lt. Bill Wolf at 847-289-2602 or email wolf_b@cityofelgin.org. The walk will conclude at the DNA office at 3:30PM for a quick wrap-up meeting and Q&A. This event is a great opportunity for members of the downtown area to work with the City of Elgin toward the common goal of hosting a thriving business district.

For more information, contact the DNA at (847) 488-1456 or e-mail downtownelgin@gmail.com.
