Chamber President Welcome

BRING IT HOME TO

WINTRUST BANK MONT CLARE

There’s really no telling where your money goes when you bank with a big bank from out of town. How about when you choose Wintrust Bank-Mont Clare? That we can tell you. Your money goes back into the things that matter most to you: the local economy, local organizations and charities, and the strengthening of our local community. We care about these things too because, for us, this is more than just where we work. This is home.

Dear Neighbor, I am pleased to write this letter to you after a year of nothing but sustained growth and progress for our business communities. The Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce has helped officiate numerous groundbreaking and grand opening celebrations in what is a strong and positive foreshadowing of the year to come. As we keep progressing forward into 2017, the speculation about the new business moving into town is becoming reality, as more and more are taking notice of our burgeoning business corridor. This success is attributed to you; the residents, business owners, and leaders in our respective communities and with that, the Chamber thanks you for your loyalty and dedication. Chamber membership was at an all-time high in 2016, and we hope to surpass that in 2017. As a consumer, I invite you to utilize the resources of the Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce, such as our mobile friendly website and the Community Guide to help make the decision where you will eat tonight, bank tomorrow, and shop this weekend. While supporting our local business establishments, you are helping to ensure the era of progress will continue for a long time to come. Thank you again for being the best neighbors a business could ask for, and best regards for a healthy and prosperous 2017.

Ricardo Braglia, President Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce

Elmwood Park Village President Welcome This year has been tremendous for the Village of Elmwood Park and 2017 promises to continue that trend. Our administration has worked tirelessly over the last several years to complete our massive flood mitigation project which has helped to address chronic flooding throughout town and has resulted in 64 homes being removed from the FEMA floodplain map. Coupled with the completion of a street improvement program and construction of new homes and townhomes throughout the village, it’s easy to see why our home sales and property values continue to grow. Elmwood Park always strives to be a place where businesses locate and invest. We worked diligently to make the new Walgreen’s store at North and Harlem a reality and we look forward to the opening of more new businesses in this coming year. The village also worked hard this

year to improve parking near our Restaurant Row by building two surface lots and entering into a pilot program with New Star restaurant to share its parking lot with other businesses. These improvements have resulted in a better dining experience for restaurant patrons as well as addressing concerns on residential streets in the area. Infrastructure improvements in the village are always on our minds at village hall and I’m pleased to say that we have secured federal and county grants that will allow us to resurface both Diversey and Fullerton Avenues this year without the use of local dollars. The village administration also worked to secure a grant to streetscape the Conti Parkway Circle and Avenue of Flags, which will make the village’s front door all the more welcoming. We are excited to continue our efforts to revitalize the Circle. The Circle continues to be a hub of activity in Elmwood Park hosting concerts, our car show and other activities throughout the year. Our newly built bocce courts have been

Add in outdoor movies in the park, the Taste of Elmwood Park and Fall Fest and our residents are never lacking opportunities to recreate and get involved. Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the $4.2 million in federal money that the Council of Mayors awarded to complete phases One and Two engineering of the grade separation at the Grand Avenue railroad crossing. We remain focused on making the underpass a reality and we are encouraged to take these first concrete steps in addressing this critical infrastructure improvement. I look forward to working with our Village Trustees on the opportunities that 2017 will bring. Elmwood Park continues to be a great place for businesses and residents alike. Sincerely,

Angelo “Skip” Saviano Village President

River Grove President Welcome I am very proud to have been appointed as the acting village president after the resignation of long time Village President Marilynn May on May 5, 2016. Having been a member of the board of trustees for the last 14 years, I have been able to step into this new role with confidence and the knowledge that my fellow board members and I will continue on with the same positive mission of continued improvement to our economic growth. Since becoming acting president, my staff and I have frequently met with interested developers to discuss various parcels of vacant land and properties in need of redevelopment. An exciting opportunity for a large development exists with the relocation of the River Grove Public Works Facility. This property, located adjacent to the Metra station, offers an outstanding location for transit-oriented development that

could include retail shops, restaurants and assorted types of housing. Additionally, the village has adopted a Grand-Thatcher TIF Redevelopment Project Area in an effort to further advance the commercial development of the Grand Avenue Corridor. With respect to existing commercial activities, the Village of River Grove has welcomed back Quasthoff’s Flowers to its new location at 8125 Grand Ave. We are thrilled to have such an iconic and successful business back in town and as a member of the Grand Corridor Chamber. The Thatcher Woods Shopping Center has also been revitalized with the addition of Rich’s Finer Foods, D’Agostino’s, Ross Dress for Less and Kirlin’s Hallmark Shop, and a remodeling of the Binny’s Beverage store. These improvements have definitely brought the Thatcher Woods Shopping Center back to life and it continues to serve as a primary economic engine for the area. In addition to Thatcher Woods, Dunkin Donuts has opened a unique two-story store at Grand

Avenue and River Road, and this new concept has been a huge success. As always, we will continue to work with our state and county representatives to seek funding for projects that will enhance the community and attract new businesses and residents to our community. In closing, the recent gains in the economy are encouraging and have prompted many individuals to open new businesses. The Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce is a valuable resource for all business owners and organizations, and offers a wonderful environment to network and showcase your business to all aspects of the community. I encourage all of our local businesses and organizations to become a part of the Grand Corridor Chamber, as we continue to work with our neighbors in developing a strong and reliable economy for the businesses, organizations and residents of the corridor. Lynn Bjorvik River Grove Acting Village President

Are you considering opening a new business? Please keep the Village of River Grove in mind.

The Village is committed to promoting and enhancing our local businesses and to continued economic growth. For additional information, please contact the mayor’s office directly.

Cook County Commissioner Welcome Dear Neighbors, I am very proud to represent Elmwood Park and River Grove on the Cook County Board. Over the years, I have seen many positive changes in the area, particularly in the commercial and business areas. New businesses enhance our community. Thatcher Woods Shopping Center, shopping plazas on North Avenue, Harlem Avenue and Grand Avenue, as well as many established businesses have always been important to our neighborhoods and to the quality of life of our residents. In order to keep our areas vibrant, it is vitally important that we all make an effort to support our local businesses whenever possible. We have a varied array of businesses that provide many valuable services, such as dining, car services, banquet facilities, salon services and many others of all kinds. Please continue to patronize our local businesses, many of them owned and operated by our neighbors. Think local and support the businesses that support our community groups, schools and churches. It is an investment in our communities! Sincerely,

Peter N. Silvestri, Cook County Commissioner, 9th District
