PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

MELISSA HERNANDEZ PRESIDENT Northern Kane County Chamber of Commerce

NKCC, Northern Kane County Chamber of Commerce, is a regional chamber serving the communities of Carpentersville, East Dundee, Gilberts, Sleepy Hollow and West Dundee. Having worked for the chamber for the past 13 years, I have witnessed the business landscape has change significantly. Online shopping, social media engagement and other web-based interactions have deprived us of the personal relationships and dedicated attention that used to accompany our business transactions. In the midst of these changes, chambers have struggled to find relevance, competing with busy schedules and a myriad of networking opportunities and choices. Some question whether chambers are relevant or necessary today. Here is my answer. Chambers offer the business community a place to come together and share ideas, make new connections and expand their contact base. Networking opportunities are offered in a variety of formats and at a variety of times to suit varying schedules. In addition, chambers offer educational seminars and professional development on relevant topics such as marketing, finance, social media and tools to help the small business owner with limited resources succeed. In addition to educational and networking opportunities, chambers offer access and advocacy with local government. The NKCC works closely with Carpentersville, East Dundee, Gilberts, Sleepy Hollow and West Dundee through community events and other local initiatives to promote shopping local businesses. Rise and Shine events were designed for businesses to have access to village leaders to address questions and concerns. They are hosted on a rotating schedule throughout the year at each participating municipality. Our chamber’s board of directors, representing a wide range of businesses in our community, work hard to make sure the chamber stays relevant, accessible and progressive. Their commitment and dedication has helped NKCC to be viable and dynamic for more than 40 years. Strong businesses make strong communities. The chamber understands that. We work with area service organizations and clubs to clean up our community and make it a better place to live. The NKCC participates in local food drives, local Habitat for Humanity projects, the local Rotary clubs, and the Boys and Girls Club of Dundee Township to name a few. We truly believe that when we all work together, we all win by making the Northern Kane County region a wonderful place to live, shop and do business!

Sincerely,

Melissa Hernandez PRESIDENT NORTHERN KANE COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE | 5

VILLAGE OF GILBERTS

I

ncorporated in 1890, Gilberts grew up around a train station on the regional rail line. The village population was reported as 6,879 in the 2010 Census but is projected to be as high as 8,073 as of 2017. Gilberts Elementary School is the primary destination for the village’s youngsters to begin their public school education. Students in Gilberts stay within Community

Unit School District 300 as they move up to Hampshire Middle School and then Hampshire High School, where their athletes are known as the “Whip-Purs.” Sonshine Christian Preschool also serves the Gilberts community. When it comes to hospitals, Gilbert’s residents have the option of either Advocate Sherman Hospital or Presence Saint Joseph Hospital in Elgin or the new Centegra Hospital in Huntley. In addition to its proximity to a variety of retailers on Randall Road, Gilberts boasts several local businesses of its own, including many restaurants, auto repair shops, and a host of other specialty businesses that will cater to your every need. Gilberts is a place close to major cities, but far enough away to provide room for healthy growth of both families and light industrial manufacturing.

Several Christian churches also call Gilberts home. Dating to 1887, St. Peter Lutheran Church is a longtime institution in the village. St. Mary Catholic Church, which dates to the 1800’s, is associated with St. Catherine of Siena in West Dundee. Fellowship Life Bible Church is a newer congregation that meets at the elementary school.

VILLAGE OF CARPENTERSVILLE

C

arpentersville is a great community to start a business and put down your roots and start a family! When it comes to businesses, the Walmart Supercenter, anchoring the Route 25 retail corridor, continued to attract national retailers such as Starbucks, Wingstop, and O’Reilly Auto Parts. The Route 31 retail corridor has welcomed, Spotted Fox, Popeye’s Chicken, Southern Belle’s, Gyradiko, and Jersey Mike’s. The Randall Road retail corridor experienced growth as well with Lou Malnati’s, Meat & Potato Eatery, and Burger King. Manufacturers in the Spring Hill Center for Commerce & Industry Business Park and

along the Maple Avenue industrial area offer high paying positions in the tool & die, fabrication, injection molding, food processing, and high tech industries. For families, Carpentersville has provided a variety of housing options throughout the community from starter homes to large, upscale single family residences. Adjacent to the Fox River, the Old Town neighborhood is lined with historic homes and surrounds Carpenter Park. Recently, Carpentersville has focused on improving the parks. Carpenter Park has experienced a major renovation. The improvements have included new playground equipment, a disc golf course, a walking track with exercise stations, a softball field, band shell improvements, multiuse trails with a connection to the Fox River Trail, and a historic area where visitors can learn more about Carpentersville’s history. There also numerous other outdoor recreation opportunities in addition to Carpenter Park. The Chicago Area Mountain Bikers (CAMBr) have been making improvements to Keith Andres Park and

Raceway Woods for several years, creating a destination known throughout the Midwest as one of the premier destinations to do mountain biking. Since 2012 CAMBr has volunteered hundreds of hours to transform Keith Andres Park into a 25 acre bike park and have created a three and half mile bike trail through Raceway Woods. Carpentersville is a great place to shop, play, and work.

VILLAGE OF WEST DUNDEE

W

est Dundee offers small-town charm and regional convenience. The community’s rich heritage is showcased in the historic downtown business district which offers a variety of dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities adjacent to a picturesque river walk. Near its highway crossroads of Routes 72 and 31, West Dundee is home to Spring Hill Mall, an evolving regional and specialty retail and restaurant center, and with convenient access to the Randall Road corridor, the Oakview Corporate

Park is home to Canlan Sports and various U.S. headquarters of international companies including UK-based Renishaw and Germany-based Helukabel and Oelheld. As the physical and symbolic heart of the community, downtown has seen significant investment in building stock with multiple authentic restorations and the new businesses that followed, including Bleuroot Farm-to-Table, Bamboozels Bar & Grill, Craft Donuts & Coffee, Rochaus, an intimate live music venue, specialty retailers in Boxwood Home Design & Cabinetry and Around the Corner Candy, and 124 Lofts, which offers urban-style lodging. These new businesses have joined restaurant institutions, Emmett’s Brewing Company and the Village Squire, among others, to form a burgeoning culinary and entertainment destination district. The trend continues, with 2019 seeing the addition of Woodfire, a full-service restaurant featuring authentic Italian cuisine and brick-oven artisanal pizza, and the Village’s completion of a block-long extension of the river walk, bringing the amenity to the south side of Main Street for the first time. West Dundee is offering new housing choices with the recent completion of 260 luxury apartments at the Springs at Canterfield near the I-90

interchange, and 2020 will see the completion of 61 independent-living apartments at Spring Hill Senior Residences near the mall. Access to colleges and universities, quaint residential neighborhoods, and the availability of quality medical facilities provide West Dundee residents and businesses amenities and services to promote an ample, well-trained work force and high quality of life. West Dundee celebrates together through annual events including Concerts in the Park during the months of June and July, the Intelligentsia Cup, a professional cycling race in July, Heritage Fest, a large three-day outdoor festival in mid-September, the West Dundee Halloween Party in October, and Dickens in Dundee, a Victorian-themed kick-off to the holiday season that takes place the first weekend in December.

VILLAGE OF SLEEPY HOLLOW

D

undee Township boasts its very own hamlet, the Village of Sleepy Hollow, a quaint residential community of less than 3,400 founded in 1958. With rural charm forsaking the business and industry that peppers its neighbors in the Fox River Valley, Sleepy Hollow is a haven from noise, traffic and crime. The citizens of Sleepy Hollow take immense

pride in their family community. With the president and board of trustees committed to retaining its rustic small town atmosphere while forging ahead into the next century, Sleepy Hollow embraces tomorrow while cherishing its past. Floyd Falese, the first village president and keeper of the vision for Sleepy Hollow, hired landscape artist and leading planner

Raymond W. Hazekamp who designed a village of rambling roads (sans curbs and sidewalks) that led into cul-de-sacs and to homes constructed on lots a minimum of one-half acre. Hazekamp called this, “the Sleepy Hollow concept of good living.” And he did all this without leveling a single tree.

The company name has changed multiple times (including McWhorter when the Chamber was founded) but we have continued to conduct the same type of business.

LEGACY MEMBER PROFILE PMS ADVERTISING RECALLS EARLY DAYS OF CHAMBER In recalling the early beginnings of the Chamber, my most vivid memory is the excitement that filled the air. Without question, the area was going to undergo vast change with the development and opening of Spring Hill Mall in October, 1980. At the time, I was an advertising account representative for the local Free Press Newspapers and I would be responsible for contacting both the Homart Development Company and Spring Hill Mall management and retailers. Jim Brasel, who was president of Carpentersville Savings Bank, found it to be imperative that our community have a local Chamber of Commerce to represent businesses in a collaborative manner to support the Spring Hill Mall businesses entering our market. The Dundee Businessman’s Association was the only professional organization at the time with membership primarily from downtown East and West Dundee businesses. My newspaper was very active from the ground floor in supporting the formation of the chamber.

events, including ribbon cuttings, business after hours and parades; Jamboree Days; golf outing; Sweetheart Ball; Chamber Expo at Spring Hill Mall; and annual dinners, to name a few. As much as we “gave back” to the chamber and local not for profit organizations, the reward for our chamber membership was in gaining trusted relationships with local businesses who became longstanding clients. Meeting business owners through a one-on-one basis through the Chamber at events is one of the Chamber’s most valued strengths.

OCTOBER 24, 2020 HALLOWEEN IN THE HOLLOW There aren’t many events where you get to see the famed “Headless Horseman” from Washington Irving’s classic tale, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. But ever since the early 1970s, Sleepy Hollow has taken its name to heart once a year for a big Halloween event at Sabatino Park. The build-up for this event actually starts a month in advance when the Village opens up the park so that residents can pile up their branches and other yard waste into a huge pile (which becomes a bonfire at the fest). The evening’s festivities, which start at 3 p.m. with a chili contest, include food sales, a costume parade and contest, pumpkin carving and hayrides. The day culminates with the lighting of the huge bonfire at 6 p.m. and the appearance of the “headless horseman” riding in on a majestic horse, to the delight of the large crowd. The fest is sponsored by the Sleepy Hollow Service Club of Illinois. For more information, visit www.shsc-il.org.

FOX RIVER VALLEY LIBRARIES Dundee Library and Randall Oaks Library

T

he Fox River Valley Public Library District (FRVPLD) serves a large, diverse group of communities. The district is comprised of the 70,000 residents who live in East Dundee, West Dundee, Carpentersville, Sleepy Hollow, Gilberts, and parts of Algonquin, Elgin and Barrington Hills. FRVPLD is the seventh largest out of 340 library districts in Illinois. While FRVPLD ranks #7 in population served, it only ranks #313 in library building square feet per capita. Known in the community as the “friendly library,” FRVPLD makes up for its lack of physical space with a staff-wide dedication to its mission to provide equal opportunity for all to learn, explore, imagine, create, and connect in a welcoming environment. In 2020, the library backed up that statement by eliminating existing and future overdue fines. Patrons enjoy a collection of materials and wide selection of programs and services available at two physical locations: Dundee Library in East Dundee and Randall Oaks Library in West Dundee. A vibrant Youth Services Department offers programs designed to help children from birth to age twelve develop the skills they need to be life-long learners. With storytimes, book and math clubs, 3D printing, STEM and Maker programs, gaming and crafting, the library provides learning experiences in an array of interests. Teens expand their knowledge and interests with a collection developed just for them, supported by collaborative programs where they can share their creativity. Movies, virtual reality gaming, craft labs, standardized test practice sessions, and clubs provide opportunities for teens to gather and explore new ideas. Informational programs on topics such as Social Security, Medicare, estate planning, history, genealogy, social media, and more, as well as cultural presentations and lectures, satisfy the lifelong learning needs of the adult population. Public computers and technology classes help residents pursue their education and gain and improve job skills. The Dundee Library offers Spanish language books, movies, and computer classes. Their website is considered a digital branch and offers 24/7 access to streaming and downloadable eBooks, music, comic books, videos, and movies as well as a collection of eResources where patrons can learn how to change spark plugs, crochet a blanket, speak Mandarin, sharpen their resume, find out who their distant Irish cousin was, or get a research paper proof-read.

NORTHERN KANE COUNTY TRAILS

RACEWAY WOODS offers a leafy welcome to bicyclists The key feature of Raceway Woods Forest Preserve in Carpentersville, Raceway Mountain Bike Trail follows what used to be the Meadowdale International race track.

Whether your goal is to take in a scenic longdistance bike ride down the Fox River, tool around one of Kane County’s many charming villages, or get an intense mountain biking workout, there are plenty of options to indulge your bicycling needs.

The now-paved track is a focus of The Chicago Area Mountain Bikers, also known as CAMBr. With the oversight of the village of Carpentersville, CAMBr members work to clear brush and enhance existing features of the bike trail for the use of the group and the surrounding community. CAMBr, through a Facebook group and other means, organizes regular workday events to keep the trail in good shape. The group also fundraises to pay for future improvements for features like jumps and downhill trails.

AndresBikePark. There, CAMBr members have shared information on their work to build assorted hills and jumps that give mountain bikers chances to get some big air and encounter terrain that’s not commonly found in the Chicago area. Cyclists can also get information from CAMBr as to the condition of the trail on Facebook to avoid poor biking conditions and prevent damage to the trail. According to CAMBr, the park had been neglected for decades before the group signed an agreement with the village. The park was “used as an unauthorized dump and the scene of gang related activity,” according to the park’s Facebook page.

A map on the CAMBr website (CAMBr.org) of the Raceway Trail includes fanciful names for various sections of the trail, including Little Monza Trail, Silo Hill Trail, Corkscrew Trail and Serpentine Trail. One section, labeled “Scarab’s Revenge,” is marked as a “difficult section of trail” on the map. CAMBr members monitor the conditions of Raceway Trail on a regular basis and share information via social media, both to help fellow cyclists best enjoy the trail, and also to keep the trails in good shape. Raceway Woods Forest Preserve is a 112 acre plot of land about a mile north of Huntley Road. The preserve itself is jointly controlled by the Kane County Forest Preserve District and the Dundee Township Park District. There’s a horseback riding area and picnicking areas in addition to the bike trails. The park is open daily from sunrise to sunset. For more information, call 630-232-5980 or visit www.kaneforest.com. Named after a Carpentersville resident killed in the Vietnam War, Andres park is home to a bike challenge course that is being maintained and improved by a local group of volunteers. The 25-acre park includes a basketball court, playground and mountain bike skills area. There’s off-street parking available for visitors. The Chicago Area Mountain Bikers group is leading efforts to improve the park’s biking features. The group’s efforts are documented on the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/

As CAMBr’s efforts to fix up the park bear fruit, the village is looking into adding more parking to accommodate the increase in usage and ease the impact of traffic on the surrounding neighborhood. The construction of restrooms is also under consideration by the village. One of the landmark trails of the Chicago region, the Fox River Trail is a more than 40-mile course that traverses the eastern edge of Kane County from north to south. The route starts in Algonquin at the McHenry County line and concludes in Oswego in Kendall County - or vice versa. The trail is ideal for bicycling, but it’s also used for hiking, crosscountry skiing and jogging, among other uses. Along its route, the trail winds past a number of cities and villages, including Carpentersville, East Dundee and West Dundee, Elgin and South Elgin, the Tri-Cities (St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia), North Aurora and Aurora. As its name suggests, the trail follows and in some instances crosses the scenic Fox River. The Kane County Forest Preserve District lists a number of their properties that are in close proximity to the trail, including Fox River Shores, Tyler Creek, Tekakwitha Woods, Fabyan Forest Preserve and more. If fishing is your leisure activity of choice, the Fox River Trail connects many of the best fishing spots in Kane County. The river is known for bass, catfish and walleye. The Fox River Trail connects with the Illinois Prairie Path, which goes east through DuPage County toward Chicago, near Aurora. Also in Aurora, the Virgil L. Gilman Trail heads west toward Montgomery. At the northern end of the Fox River Trail in Algonquin, it connects with the Prairie Trail, which continues north toward Wisconsin.
