7 Elgin – The City in the Suburbs

Elgin is an advantage for business and commerce, the workforce, and day-to-day activities.

Enjoying the Excellence but also who we want to be.” She adds that the visual identity is only 5 percent of the total branding and identity efforts, but 95 percent of how the community and others will identify with Elgin. Hundreds of volunteers from all parts of the city, along with the leadership and membership of the Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce, have worked to put all of the pieces together to exemplify what really makes Elgin tick. Their undaunted passion was to brand Elgin with a strong positive image and identity as THE sought-after place to live, work, learn, worship, and play. After a very long process they were able to begin to carve out a distinctiveness that truly exemplifies what Elgin is all about and what makes it strong. “The City in the Suburbs” embodies the touchstones that make us celebrate the past, enjoy today, and be ahead of the curve for tomorrow. The brand is a meaningful value creator to distinguish the city’s assets. Tom Andreoli made an astute observation on Elgin several years ago in Illinois Periodicals Online, Northern Illinois University Libraries. He wrote, “Elgin appears to have the chance to

enjoy the best of the city and the suburbs: to be a city, with its own social and cultural institutions; to show economic, ethnic and racial diversity at the same time it exercises the economic muscle closely associated with suburban growth.” What a perfect description of Elgin. It truly is “The City in the Suburbs.” The core brand values of its new trademark are authenticity, sustainability, accessibility, vitality, and character. Elgin is authentic, a down-to-earth community overflowing with philanthropic generosity. Sustainability is a key factor with the city’s involvement with the Congress of New Urbanism and the development of a walkable and bike-friendly community. Local businesses lead the way, dedicated to reducing the carbon footprint and increasing eco-friendly initiatives. Easy access to and from Elgin is an advantage for business and commerce, the workforce, and day-to-day activities. The vitality of the city is centered by the Fox River, community events, recreation opportunities, and unique entertainment. Character is exemplified by the genuine heritage of the city and its people, whether in philanthropy, volunteerism, or civic involvement.

he city of Elgin has everything you could ask for. Its roots run deep as an active city in its own right. With approval of the Elgin City Council in May 2010, the identity mark of “The City in the Suburbs” was put into place. “The City in the Suburbs is authentic, first and foremost,” City Manager Sean Stegall said, “and it is the ideal reflection of what the community is and what the community aspires to be in the future.” Its close proximity 35 miles northwest of Chicago has kept it an ever-bustling entity for residents, businesses, and visitors alike. But it has kept fiercely independent to grow with its own identity and achieved its status as an award-winning All America City in 2002. Elgin’s new slogan “The City in the Suburbs” is the result of an unprecedented and unwavering journey and commitment that began nearly 10 years ago. It culminated with a renewed effort over the past two years to take the slogan “It’s Happening Here” to the next level. Sue Olafson, co-chair of the Enhancing Elgin Committee, said, “our new tagline and logo represents strength, acknowledging our history

of Both Worlds

Elgin – The City in the Suburbs

These identified values are witnessed in every corner of the city. Honing the image of “The City in the Suburbs” has evolved over time. It all started back in 2002, when the Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce launched its highly active Enhancing Elgin Committee. It has been working ever since to mold and improve the perception and image of Elgin as part of the Chamber’s economic development efforts. Committee members have volunteered hundreds of hours, driven by their personal passion and pride for the city they love and call home. The result eight years ago was an enormously successful public-private partnership that involved Elgin’s business community, local media, not-for-profit groups, government, Elgin Community College, Judson University, Elgin Symphony Orchestra, Realtor® groups, Provena

Saint Joseph Hospital, Sherman Hospital, and other key stakeholders. These partnerships garnered a strong investment commitment to develop Elgin’s future business community and skilled workforce for future years. The work that had begun helped to bring an expanded economic development program to benefit all who live and work in Elgin, South Elgin, and surrounding communities. The principal mission was to retain local successful businesses in the area and give them every opportunity to remain and expand operations in the area. Those efforts were just the beginning. In 2007, the Enhancing Elgin Committee pondered their next move. They produced a game plan to do the research to put them on the right track. Honest perceptions about Elgin were acquired from a variety of target audiences in Elgin and surrounding communities.

To find your own niche and identity takes effort and a benchmark. Longtime Enhancing Elgin Committee member Karen Fox, U-46 School District’s chief of family and community engagement, said, “It’s known that if you don’t have a brand, you will be branded. We need to be able to begin to brand our city in the way it deserves. Through our research we began to identify barriers that impeded Elgin’s overall image and the ambivalent perception that existed.” To move the process forward, “We started with an umbrella position that said, ‘Elgin has a quality of life and accessibility that are unusual for a city, including cultural, entertainment, and recreation opportunities that are not available in surrounding suburbs,’” Fox noted. “For hands-on feedback and response by the community, we began a series of successful Community Conversations throughout the city to underscore the fact that Elgin is the city in the suburbs,” said Cherie Murphy, Elgin’s marketing officer. What the new “The City in the Suburbs” logo signifies is a curved horizon conveying new growth, innovation, and economic opportunities. Simple elements nod to Elgin’s urban skyline and historic significance. The color blue was chosen to represent sustainability — not in the way “green” would, but rather in the way the river provides sustainability, as it has sparked the revitalization of businesses, residences, and recreation along the Fox River. According to Paula Amenta Chief Marketing Communications Officer, at Elgin Community College and co-chair of the Enhancing Elgin committee, “Our brand/identity promise has everyone wholly committed to helping Elgin realize its full potential of being an exceptional community to live in and an exciting destination to visit. We champion the vitality and accessibility that makes Elgin a truly great place.” To continue the momentum, the Enhancing Elgin Committee has formed a Social Media Committee to push the message forward and articulate the brand identity of Elgin. We’ll proudly herald the city’s rich heritage, proud accomplishments, and innovations through authentic examples on how we are sustainable, authentic, accessible, and full of vitality and lots of character. Yes, we are truly “The City in the Suburbs.”

Elgin and Its Business Community Embrace the Sustainability Factor

Locally, the city of Elgin has seen a solid influx of award-winning environmental and LEED design, construction, and manufacturing projects within the past several years in both the public and private sectors. With the foresight of Elgin business leaders committed to making a positive change, highly visible projects in Elgin are leading the way for a positive environmental impact. Notable Elgin green buildings include the Harm A. Weber Academic Center at Judson University, the Elgin Academy-Harold D. Rider Family Media Science and Arts Center, the Grand Victoria Foundation office, the Gail Borden Library-Rakow Branch, THE National Bank, and the Siemens Winergy manufacturing plant. These Elgin LEED projects, however, didn’t magically happen overnight. To become involved in a LEED project, area businesses committed their key management leaders to acquiring professional LEED certification several years ago. The validity of a LEED project

here is something quite unique and authentic about a city and business community that concentrate efforts on balance, durability, and sustainability for the good of residents and the success of the business environment. Today, more than ever before, the impact on tomorrow’s environment takes a high precedence when designing and constructing a new building and its exterior landscape. The sustainability trend really took hold nationally in 1998 through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), when communities, businesses, builders, designers, and architectural firms embraced the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system. LEED was established to provide building owners and operators a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions.

not only extends to the business overseeing a project, but LEED certifications, such as Silver, Gold, and Platinum, are also awarded to the project itself. John Shales and Bill Wilson of Shales McNutt Construction achieved professional LEED accreditation by successfully completing a grueling test demonstrating their knowledge of green building technologies, practices, and principles. This third-party verification provides national benchmarks for a green-designed building and community, with firm strategies intended to improve performance in energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emission reduction, indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources through recycling for sensitivity of overall impact. “The experience of becoming familiar with all aspects of LEED and the ability to understand the project certification process was invaluable,” said Shales. “LEED has changed the way we do business and the construction industry itself. It has raised the bar for energy efficiency


The Elgin Academy Harold D. Rider Family Media Science and Arts Center debuted in 2009. According to the project’s architect, Bruce Dahlquist, AIA, LEED AP, of DLA Architects LTD in Elgin, this facility is now a “living laboratory for math and science students interested in technology, materials, and design/construction techniques. From the start this project was and has continued to be a win-win situation.” Sustainable practices for the Elgin Academy project began from the start, when an auction was held for the salvaged materials and artifacts saved from the two distressed houses that were demolished at the site. “In addition, 20 percent of the buildings materials are from local and regional sources,” Dahlquist added. “Conserving water was also important for the site. Indigenous, drought-resistant plants fed by storm water were used in planting areas.” A sustainable project is a solid endorsement for energy savings. However, construction costs can be 10 to 20 percent beyond what a similar “conventional” building would cost. The real savings in energy costs rise dramatically in a few years to offset the initial project budget.

Sustainable economic development is critical to Elgin’s growth. The presence of Winergy in Elgin has made a strong statement on the viability of the city for bringing jobs to the area to help build a healthy and dynamic regional economy. Affiliated with Siemens, Winergy recently expanded its burgeoning wind turbine gearbox operation with a new 170,000-square-foot, LEED-certified plant that assembles and tests mechanical gear boxes for a global market. As the economy gets stronger, plans have already been made to expand the facility even further in 2011. Winergy Drive Systems and Siemens Drive Technologies in Elgin were awarded an EDIE (Economic Development in Illinois) Award by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the Illinois Development Council (IDC) in recognition of their significant economic development project. “Siemens has contributed to our community’s economic success with the expansion that helped retain 142 jobs, and it will create an additional 350 new jobs over the next two to three years,” said Elgin City Manager Sean Stegall. Winergy recognizes it is more economical to hire local employees for wind gearbox service and sales. It anticipates training and expanding its workforce to service worn wind gearboxes at its Elgin premises. Looking to the future, Dr. David Sam, president of Elgin Community College, also reports that the college has plans for an Energy Institute that could provide the vocational training to support such needs. Elgin Community College now offers several green, renewable energy, and sustainability non-credit courses to help students and businesses qualify for emerging 21st-century job opportunities. Courses include LEED Green Associate Training, Green Energy Savings and Alternatives, and Becoming a Green Teacher. The momentum and movement for sustainability and energy efficiency is riding high, and its potential for moving full speed ahead is taking place right here, right now.

throughout the entire building envelope system. Commonplace practices include upgraded HVAC systems, high-performance insulation, more natural light, energy-efficient CFL light bulbs, and automatic room lights on and off for energy savings.” The growing need for LEED has been a catalyst for local architects DLA Inc. and PSA Dewberry and builders like Shales McNutt Construction, IHC Corporation, and Lamp Inc. to work together for mutual clients in creating sustainable structures that stand out and provide energy-saving benefits. The trend also, according to John Shales, “is the increased emphasis on new building codes in the city of Elgin and other communities that mirror LEED’s guidelines.” The much-anticipated 88,000-square-foot Harm A. Weber Academic Center at Judson University was completed in 2007. The project’s architects, Short & Associates, London, England, and Burnidge Cassell Associates in Elgin (now PSA Dewberry), and construction manager Shales McNutt Construction in Elgin provided a variety of unique “green” aspects. The building, LEED Gold Certified, demonstrates solid environmental stewardship with a mix of low-tech passive and high-tech active technologies, from photovoltaic solar panels that generate electricity to a natural cross-ventilation system. “The architecture and sustainable strategies that are employed within the building are a true reflection of the mission and vision of the School of Art, Design and Architecture at Judson University,” noted Dr. Curtis Sartor, dean of the School of Art, Design and Architecture. “For our students, it is a wonderful learning laboratory, and for our faculty and staff it is a wonderful place to work, build community, and serve God.”

Geothermal Lake — a Green Benchmark Optimum energy-efficiency has also taken an exciting turn at Sherman Hospital. Its energy-producing, stress-reducing 15-acre geothermal lake has been heating and cooling the hospital at its new Randall and Big Timber roads location. It has been determined that buildings using geothermal energy, which is derived from the temperature of the earth, use up to 40 percent less energy than other high-efficiency buildings. Sherman Hospital estimates saving $1 million in energy costs per year.

The geothermal lake is the largest geothermal system in Illinois and is one of only two geothermal lakes used to heat and cool medical centers in the United States. Sherman Hospital was awarded a grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation for its geothermal lake and for setting a “green” benchmark for how hospitals and other large institutional energy users can heat and cool facilities in an environmentally friendly way. The U.S. Department of Energy also recognized Sherman Hospital for promoting America’s energy security through reliable, clean, and affordable energy.

The City of Elgin Sustainable Master Plan Elgin is committed to becoming a more sustainable community and preserving resources for future generations. The city is creating an environmental master plan to touch every part of the city through: • Outreach/community education. • Water resources. • Green building technology/energy conservation. • Transportation and mobility. • Economic development. • Recycling and waste management. • Urban design. • Alternative energy. • Parks and green infrastructure.

Until that plan is completed, Elgin is moving forward with a series of eco-friendly projects, including: • • • •

Riverside Drive storm water. Connecting bike pathways. Purchasing hybrid vehicles. Working with the Gail Borden Library and the Fox River Renaissance Group. • Providing residents with a citywide recycling program. • Developing fire stations #7 and #8 within green standards. • Converting all of the city’s traffic signals to LED.

Health Care

Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce

Today’s health care is continually changing at an overwhelming pace. Breakthroughs in medicine, equipment, and medical technology and groundbreaking discoveries are occurring every single day. These advancements have profoundly affected how physicians diagnose, treat, and cure a patient. All of these leading, cutting-edge treatments are here close to home. With excellence in health care services in Elgin, patients and their families can concentrate on overcoming their difficulties and not be burdened with the added stress of driving to Chicago or out of Elgin for care. Elgin is the home to two nationally top-rated hospitals that have each served the greater Elgin community for over 100 years. Provena Saint Joseph Hospital and Sherman Hospital belong to an elite group at the forefront of medical care who, on a national level, continually score high in specialized fields.

Provena Saint Joseph Hospital Provena Saint Joseph Hospital has been transformed over the past few years with the completion of its 163,000-square-foot expansion and modernization project, anchored by a new four-story bed tower. State-of-the-art Heart and Vascular Institute cardiac services include the area’s only Hybrid Cath Lab, a cath lab that can be quickly converted to a state-of-the-art surgical suite should the need arise. PSJH has expanded and modernized its Intensive Care units, Comprehensive Rehab Unit, Medical Imaging Department, and Cardiac Catherization labs. It implemented digital mammography and recently introduced the Women’s Heart Center.

Cancer patients at the Bob & Edna Meadows Regional Cancer Care Center receive advanced care via state-of-the-art technology delivered by an elite group of caregivers who work together to assure care is individualized and well-planned. Linear accelerators, image-guided radiation therapy (IMRT), and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) provide precision accuracy noninvasive cancer treatment, and HDR (high-dose radiation) minimizes breast cancer radiation treatment from six weeks to five days. Provena Saint Joseph Hospital is part of Provena Health, a Catholic health system whose mission is to “build communities of healing and hope by compassionately responding to human need in the spirit of Jesus Christ.”

Sherman Hospital Sherman Hospital opened its replacement hospital in late 2009 on the Randall Road corridor at Big Timber Road. The hospital features a six-story inpatient bed tower with 255 beds in private rooms. The hospital features a 15-acre geothermal lake, the largest geothermal lake in the world. Energy produced from the lake heats and cools the new hospital, making it one of the most energy-efficient health care facilities in the country. Sherman Hospital continues its high level of comprehensive heart care at its Heart and Vascular Center. In 1972, the hospital was the first community hospital to perform open-heart surgery. Since then, over 12,000 open-heart surgeries and over 50,000 cath procedures have been performed. The new Birthing Center offers private rooms and every comfort to make delivery a smooth process. Other features of the hospital include the usage of the DaVinci Surgical System, which


Recreation To build and maintain a healthy community, The City in the Suburbs offers a variety of active options to keep their recreational spirits alive.

t’s easy to take the richness and diversity of a vibrant arts and culture scene in a community for granted. Not so in Elgin, though, where the partnership of unwavering enthusiasm and sustaining philanthropic support abounds. Happily, the opportunities to enjoy the arts in The City in the Suburbs are continuous and endless. They could not have been possible without the generous business and personal donations of a dedicated group who give with open hearts. We’re identified by Elgin’s accomplished and recognized artistic gems in the Elgin Symphony Orchestra, Elgin Choral Union, Elgin OPERA, Elgin Community Theatre, Children’s Theatre of Elgin, Heartland Voices, Hamilton Wings, and Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra. Arts facilities such as the Elgin Art Showcase, the Hemmens, the Visual and Performing Art Center at Elgin Community College, and the Elgin Academy black box Kimball Street Theatre provide the perfect backdrop to experience the magic of the arts. The dedicated and passionate audiences attending Elgin’s diverse performances and the talented individuals who showcase their talents enjoy a special bond that grows stronger each year. Arts and culture is a living entity that’s alive and well in The City in the Suburbs. Elgin is bursting at the seams with a constant flurry of actors, entertainers, musicians, and artisans who showcase their unique talents through the literary and visual arts and expertise in theatre, song, music,

dance, and more. From young children, teens, and students to adults, seniors, and widely known, recognized professionals, the options are balanced to touch every part of the community. Nurturing and promoting the arts is very important to the city of Elgin. The Elgin Cultural Arts Commission was established to foster educational opportunities and enhance the quality of life for all residents of the city by making recommendations to develop arts and cultural programs directed at various age, ethnic, and religious groups. Elgin and Larkin high schools offer the Gifted and Talented Academy, ECC features the Visual and Performing Arts Center, and Judson University is proud of its arts and design programs. In a tough economy, the arts are a breath of fresh air and relief from the everyday mundane and stress. We begin to enjoy and appreciate simple experiences and reflect about what’s important to us. We’re not so much about stuff anymore, but are now spending quality time of enrichment and entertainment with family and friends. Art and performance venues throughout Elgin offer a variety of affordable and accessible cultural opportunities and events of interest to a wide range of residents and visitors. Strong cultural assets are a positive economic engine for the community. The innovative and ever-changing creative arts and culture environment in Elgin is a magnet that attracts patrons from near and far.

Elgin is bursting at the seams with a constant flurry of actors, entertainers, musicians, and artisans who showcase their unique talents... It inspires them to attend the theatre, visit a museum, or take in a concert. After the performance, they’ll explore for new venues and menus at a new or favorite Elgin store or restaurant right downtown or along the way. It’s a win-win for the business community. The economic contributions of the arts surround us every day. Kick back, enjoy, and take great pride in the unique cultural heritage and traditions right here at home.

The intimate 1,200-seat Hemmens Theatre hosts contemporary music, theatre, and special events for the enjoyment of the entire family. Located on the Fox River in the Centre City area of downtown Elgin, it is the cornerstone of Elgin’s growing arts community and provides a stellar lineup of performers each season.

take in a concert at 1:30 p.m. A highly successful outreach program has touched 20,000 students, many whom have never been exposed to the arts before. They are nurtured and educated through several music education programs. The ECC Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) offers its own CenterStage lineup of fresh, artistically relevant acts to the delight of the community in the Blizzard Theatre and Black Box Theatre. If you have a creative streak or yearning to bring yours out, participate in a workshop, join a performing arts group, or take a course to make it happen today. VPAC also is the home of the Elgin Choral Union (ECU), a talented 120-voice adult choir. It is the oldest performing arts organization in the Fox Valley. Under the direction of Andrew Lewis, ECU has distinguished itself by its ambitious programming, performing master choral works, contemporary compositions, and commissioning several world premieres. The Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra (EYSO) is an in-residence ensemble of student musicians ages 9–22 at ECC in the VPAC. The talented Elgin Theatre Company (ETC) has been performing to the delight of audiences since 1952. The group draws actors, singers, dancers, and a host of others from Elgin and nearby communities. Its emphasis is on the production of plays and education in the theatre arts. The group’s artistic direction has emphasized a mixture of popular musicals, comedies, dramas, and mysteries. ETC performs at a variety of venues, including the Sears Gallery and Kimball Street Theatre at Elgin Academy, First United Methodist Church, and Theatre 355 on Chicago Street. New to the scene since January 2007 is the Elgin Art Showcase. Located on the eighth floor of the historic Professional Building at 164 Division Street in the heart of downtown Elgin, the Art Showcase offers an intimate space for local artists to exhibit their work and for performers to display their talent. During the summer, affordable live concerts and film revues abound at the Wing Park Band Shell, Lords Park, and Festival Park in downtown Elgin. The public-private Artspace project moves forward in 2011 with an 83,319 SF building renovation in downtown Elgin that will reinforce the city’s reputation as an arts destination. A 55-unit artist’s co-op with studio space, the project will ultimately spur development for other arts-related businesses in the central city area. A community is enriched by the opportunities it creates to experience the arts. No matter how you personally identify with the arts, Elgin, The City in the Suburbs, has a perfect match for you!

T

he true test of a successful economic development initiative is progress. The Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Team has gained vast inroads into placing the city of Elgin on the global map and into the spotlight, as regional, national, and international companies continue to discover and settle in Elgin.

Location, Location, Location With an estimated population of 117,000, a growing commercial/ industrial base, and a substantial infrastructure of workforce and transportation networks, Elgin has become a preferred location for many businesses. Linked to a regional workforce of 4 million people, Elgin is set in a desired location on the I-90 Jane Addams Memorial Tollway in close proximity to O’Hare International Airport. Located just 28 miles northwest of the airport, it’s an easy 30-minute drive and more accessible than Chicago. Elgin’s position in the Chicago market, combined with lower business operating costs and a history of manufacturing capability, has been a significant factor in attracting foreign direct investment.

Randall Road/I-90

The boom of the Randall Road corridor development at I-90 has exploded and continues to develop. With an estimated 45,000 vehicles per day, Randall Road holds its own, while I-90 carries over 100,000 vehicles per day. The intersection of I-90 and Randall Road has seen substantial growth as a commercial corridor in the past several years. Successful developments and projects stream both north and south of the I-90 hub. An upscale auto mall, a restaurant and entertainment center, a new hotel, and the Northwest Corporate Business Park have the mark of success. In the retail sector, Elgin has seen substantial change along Randall Road. The Burlington Coat Factory built out an existing 70,000-squarefoot site. Farther south, at the busy Bowes Road intersection, a Super Walmart will soon occupy the west side of Randall Road. Years ago, the Randall Road corridor was the hot location, and it caught the eye of national retailers and restaurateurs. While the pace of growth has slowed during this turn in the economy, plans are still in the works for future development to fill the needs of area residents and businesses.

Enhancing Elgin • Adoption of the new branding initiative “The City in the Suburbs” by the City Council. • Establishment of the Social Media Committee. Transportation and Development The committee serves as a clearing house for significant infrastructure projects. Represented on the committee are representatives from the Kane County Department of Transportation (KDOT), the city of Elgin, the Chamber, and the development community. Elgin is a leader in housing starts in the Chicago Metropolitan area. Workforce Development The 1,000 Workers Skills Initiative program was launched by the Chamber. The concept behind this initiative is to make the Work Keys® skills assessment, leading to a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC), available at no cost to those seeking employment. Vocational counseling and additional skills training will be available by Elgin Community College at no cost. The Work Keys® initiative, under the leadership of Chamber Board member Patrick Hayes, founder of Fabric Images, has been a resounding success. To date, 1,500 students in U-46 have earned a National Career Readiness Certificate. Nearly 70 businesses have agreed to recognize the NCRC in making hiring decisions. The Annual Workforce Development Award was presented to Elgin Community College for its highly regarded vocational/ training programs and for success in the National Skills, USA, competition.
