Welcome to Mount Prospect

A

with the last of the major construction boom ending in the mid-late 1960s. Today, the scarcity of available land limits the new construction to either teardowns or redevelopment opportunities as they arise. Housing styles range from ranches, Cape Cods, splitlevels, Georgians up to the larger colonials. Prices range from the low $200,000s for smaller homes, up to the high $500,000s, with a few larger homes and teardowns selling in the $700,000 to $800,000 range. Condominiums and townhomes range from the upper $100,000s to the lower $400,000s. In addition to downtown Chicago, Mount Prospect

prospering northwest suburb of Chicago, Mount Prospect enjoys the convenience of being located along the Union Pacific North-west Metra train line, allowing residents access to downtown Chicago’s Loop in as little as 34 minutes. The proximity to Chicago coupled with the peaceful suburban setting, make Mount Prospect a popular destination for home buyers seeking convenient, reliable access to Chicago, while at the same time maintaining the quiet, idyllic setting of modern day suburbs. Single-family homes in Mount Prospect consist predominantly of post-war construction from the 1950s

one in on Mount Prospect Public Library’s new second floor. Located at 10 S. Emerson St., the library relied on community and patron insights for a recent update of the building’s second floor. “The new second floor is zoned for a variety of activities,” said Dale Heath, Research Services department head. Patrons interested in quiet study, small group meetings, computer use or a chat over a cup of coffee now have spaces that meet their needs. A dedicated Teen area offers this age group a place to study, read, play games and more. Features of the renovated second floor include:  Seven additional meeting rooms, including five study rooms and two conference rooms to accommodate individuals and small groups.  The Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation conference room is wired for audio-visual needs and may be rented by small businesses.  A café vending area for a drink or a quick snack.  Teens get a spot of their own with the Teen collection close by.  Quiet and moderate noise areas allow all patrons to effectively use the library for collaborative study or individual work. Even the computer areas will be zoned for different activities.

“Patrons have been asking for more meeting space as well as areas that can accommodate a range of activities,” Heath said. “We also know that teens need their own space, but that they come to the library to use other services, as well.” What has not changed? The second floor is still bright, open, cheerful and welcoming. Staff are available on multiple service desks, helping patrons with everything from finding a great novel or biography to guiding them through the use of online resources on genealogy, car repair, investments and more, to assisting with a job search. On the first floor, Youth Services is planning an exciting and innovating STEAM programming in the Discovery Zone, as well as materials and services for early readers and children with special needs. “The library’s mission of bringing our community the services and collections they need will always remain,” said Library Executive Director Marilyn Genther.

Mount Prospect Public Library explore the opportunities

Mount Prospect Entrepreneurs Initiative

W

orking in conjunction with the Village of Mount Prospect and Mount Prospect Public Library, the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce offers a comprehensive program for entrepreneurs which could almost be called “Small Business 101.” Rather than sitting back and waiting for enterprising small businesspeople to choose to locate in Mount Prospect, they are reaching out to residents who have dreamed of starting their own business and are encouraging them and giving them the information and resources they need to make their dreams come true – hopefully, within Mount Prospect. This all-out effort to encourage and support new and aspiring business owners, launched in January 2012 as Entrepreneurs’ Café, has grown and expanded over the years because, not only has it drawn large and enthusiastic groups of people to its programs, but also because everyone involved understands the importance of small, locally owned and operated businesses to a community’s economic well-being. “The Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce is proud of the work of the Mount Prospect Entrepreneurs Initiative (MPEI). We have grown from four Entrepreneurs’s Café meetings in 2012 to a four-tiered ‘navigation’ program with over 15 dates on the calendar in 2016,” said Dawn Fletcher Collins, executive director of the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce. “Our reach is expanding every year as we help some corporate employees leave their downtown offices and open their own businesses in their hometown, which allows them to be active in their own community with the benefit of more engagement and more personal/family time. We also are reaching more residents who believe we can assist them not only achieve their goal of opening their own business, but to become more successful. These are big wins for the business owner and for the community,” she added. “We have expanded our roster of offerings by listening to the feedback we have received from participants. In this way we have definitely established ourselves as a presence in the business community. Word is getting out,” said Joe Collier, business reference librarian at the Mount Prospect Public Library. “People have been asking for these resources so we are continuing to receive very positive responses to our efforts,” said Nellie Beckner, assistant to the village manager. Four tiers of opportunities are offered, some in a group setting and others one-on-one, she explained. There are the Entrepreneur’s Café and “Jump Start Your Business” group information sessions offered on topics

2016-2017 Community Profile & Business Directory IL-MOU-CW-16 Design.indd 25

ranging from the use of social media, to Quickbooks and more, as well as the “Spotlight on Success Film Series,” which is designed to educate and inspire the entrepreneur. When an individual approach is needed, the three-person team will schedule appointments with prospective entrepreneurs and use their expertise to offer advice and resources. “The three of us offer overlapping skill sets that can help new businesspeople. For instance, Nellie is particularly good when it comes to resources. Dawn is plugged into a well-established community network at the Chamber and I have access to a large repository of data and can teach them how to use it,” Collier noted. Finally, the team is willing to connect an aspiring business owner with others who can help like the Small Business Development Center at Harper College and the Small Business Administration. They also have a list of 12 successful Mount Prospect business owners with a variety of experience who are interested in offering their assistance through the “Access to Advisors” (A2A) program. A2A has even held informal roundtable discussions on various topics. “We held a half-day workshop during Small Business Week in May and that went so well that we plan to repeat it,” Beckner added. The team has also developed written materials to which businesspeople can refer when they are back at their individual offices. “The entrepreneurs to whom I have spoken have been particularly amazed and impressed by the Mount Prospect Business Resource Guide that Nellie put together. It is a nuts and bolts guide on how to start a business in Mount Prospect,” Collier said. In addition, MPEI communicates regularly with aspiring businesspeople through an e-newsletter published approximately every six weeks. “MPEI has a great track record. Mia’s Cantina in downtown Mount Prospect is a very successful restaurant that got started because of the Entrepreneur’s Café. We also helped Strobel Billing and Consulting, a medical billing firm, move from the owner’s home to local office space. They now have several employees. We have given similar assistance to several law firms. In addition, we have helped established businesses spark their profits and have assisted them with getting insurance for employees,” Beckner said. “We are looking forward to 2017 and the near future which will certainly include a shared office/managed space opportunity similar to an incubator program. Our goal is not only business growth in Mount Prospect, but business strength,” Collins said.

Farming

C

ook County was a rough place – a vast and fertile prairie – when it was organized in 1831. But it was also a veritable dreamscape for Yankees moving west who wanted to claim land for $1.25 an acre, break the prairie and begin building new lives. In fact, the prairie seemed to be literally transformed overnight into a farming paradise when the new John Deere plow became widely available in the early 1840s. In 1848 the county was divided into 27 townships. The northeastern corner of Elk Grove Township and the south central portion of Wheeling Township was the area of this vast county that would eventually become Mount Prospect and much of it was originally farmed by Yankee pioneers. These early settlers were hardy, industrious folk who arrived on the prairie with a minimum of supplies – a rifle, skillet, seeds, a few tools, spinning wheel and knitting needles. The land grant farmers actually had to live on the land they were claiming for a number of years in order to purchase it free of competitive bids. It wasn’t until 1842 that the northern townships were finally surveyed and, by that time, almost all of the land had been claimed. Then they just had to purchase it from the government. But by the mid-to-late 1840s, many of the original settlers were finding the improvements to northeastern Illinois too confining for their tastes. So, they chose to continue westward, in search of a new challenge. In much the same way as people today “flip” houses, these early settlers “flipped” their farms, taking the money they earned and moving farther west. Fortunately, they found ready and willing German immigrant buyers for the farms they had carved out of the wilderness. Among them were the Linnemanns, the Willes, the Behlendorfs, the Pohlmans and, farther south in Elk Grove Township, the Busses. During the 1840s, emigration to the United States by lower middle-class farmers, shopkeepers and artisans from Germanic states like Hanover, Baden and Bavaria was commonplace, thanks to economic and political pressures at home. For instance, Christian and

MOUNT PROSPECT Chamber of Commerce IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 2

Dorthea Linnemann and four of their children came from Hanover in 1846, buying 80 acres in the southern part of today’s Mount Prospect for $100. He was a carpenter and cabinetmaker who both farmed and plied his trade and helped establish St. John Lutheran Church. Friedrich and Johanna Busse and their large family also arrived from Hanover in 1846, purchasing a 160-acre farm, complete with growing crops, animals, tools, some furniture and a house from Samuel Page for $2,700. It was located south and west of today’s Mount Prospect near the Busse Woods Forest Preserve. Christoph and Dorthea Wille and their three sons arrived several years later – in 1853 – from Behess. They established a homestead in the area where Elmhurst and Higgins Roads meet today and eventually built a cheese factory and creamery there. Carl Behlendorf also emigrated here from Hanover, Germany, in 1853 at the age of 11. He met Sarah Lehman and married her in 1867. Their young son, Charles, was born in their Wheeling Township house in 1868 (which still stands at 407 N. Prospect Manor). Unlike most German settlers of the time, the Behlendorfs traveled to Arlington Heights to attend a Methodist church. William Pohlman came to the United States in 1867 and built his grand Victorian-style farmhouse in view of the railroad tracks in about 1873. It is still standing at 221 S. Owen St. He farmed the surrounding land for many years. In fact, he was still listed as a farmer in the 1900 census. Owen Rooney was one of the few non-Germans in the area by the time of the Civil War. His home, much expanded over the years, still stands at 15 S. George St. No one is sure when the original home was built. Rooney, an Irish immigrant, purchased 160 acres from a land grant farmer when he arrived in the area in 1847. A house could have already been standing on the property or Rooney could have started the building process himself. It is known, however, that in 1874, almost 30 years after he arrived here, Rooney and his neighbor, Walter Burke, sold approximately 140 acres of their land holdings to a speculator named Ezra Carpenter Eggleston so that Eggleston could develop a town along the railroad tracks which he named “Mount Prospect.” Three years after that sale, on Sept. 29, 1877, Rooney was accidentally killed by a train while walking along the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad tracks.

Railroad & Eggleston

C

ommunities in Illinois developed along transportation lines. The earliest (like Des Plaines, Wheeling and Chicago) were established along waterways. Next to develop were those communities like Arlington Heights, Palatine and Barrington that grew up along railroad lines. Mount Prospect was a secondary railroad town because it was located between two of the earlier towns so it took a bit longer to populate. Communities that were near neither waterways nor railroad tracks developed last (like Buffalo Grove). Rumors about the construction of a railroad through northwest Cook County began circulating in 1850 and by late 1854, the Illinois and Wisconsin Railroad was running between Chicago and Cary. By 1855 it had merged with the Rock River Valley Railroad in Wisconsin so that tracks ran from Chicago to Fond du Lac, via Cary, Janesville and Sharon. It was re-named the Chicago, St. Paul and Fond du Lac Railroad. The railroad had its subsequent bankruptcies, name changes and reorganizations but it nevertheless brought major changes to northwestern Cook County. Farmers whose property bordered the depots began subdividing their farms into town lots and others who lived farther from the tracks found their sons taking up blacksmithing and shop keeping and moving their families into the new towns. The railroad also brought in new immigrants and gave farmers a new market for their crops and dairy products, sending them into Chicago daily via the train. Farmers were charged 16 cents for each milk can they put on the train each morning, but they received the princely sum of three cents PER QUART from sales in the city. They would bring full cans to the depots early each morning and return in mid-afternoon to collect the empty cans. As for produce, the farmers began growing the crops that city-dwellers were demanding. Ezra Eggleston entered the picture in the early 1870s. It was either gutsy or foolhardy when he invested in farmland between Des Plaines and Arlington Heights, purchasing acreage from Owen Rooney and

1917-2017 Special Centennial Section IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 3

Walter Burke in order to start a town called “Mount Prospect,” named for its high elevation and Eggleston’s high hopes for its future. He built a small railroad depot and began lobbying the railroad for a stop. On Sept. 2, 1874, he even filed a plat for his proposed community. But the nation was in the midst of an economic depression and by that time, 73 percent of the land in Cook County was within 15 miles of a railroad line, so people weren’t willing to pay premium prices for land along the tracks. Speculators like Eggleston had to wait for the county to “grow into” its new facilities, and he did not have the financial wherewithal to do that. In 1881 the court forced Eggleston to sell one of his lots to settle a debt. Soon after, he was foreclosed on by his lender, Ripon College. Shortly thereafter, Eggleston moved his family to Michigan. His timing might have been off, but Eggleston had the right idea. It was the town promoters who stood to make the most fabulous profits in the 1870s. But town promotion was risky, and Eggleston suffered a huge loss. He did, however, lay the groundwork for a commerce center along the tracks between Des Plaines and Arlington Heights. And shortly after Eggleston left the area, Christian Geils, a young Wheeling Township supervisor who owned a grain elevator in Arlington Heights, seized upon the opportunity and purchased a triangle of Eggleston’s Mount Prospect land for back taxes at a cost of $4.18. His political connections probably account for why he got the first opportunity. Geils quickly built a general store at the corner of what is now Northwest Highway and Main Street. The building was moved to 10 S. Pine St. in 1999 and now houses an ice cream store. He also built a barn, which was later moved and converted into a house to make way for the construction of Northwest Highway. Geils didn’t stay long, however, forsaking Mount Prospect for love. He married a Des Plaines woman and built a cheese factory there, selling his interests in Mount Prospect to a relative, John C. Moehling, in 1882.

Commerce Center

M

ount Prospect was a small commerce center along the railroad tracks for the first 35 years after John C. Moehling bought that general store from his kin in 1882. By this time William Wille, a recent widower, had already moved his family close to Eggleston’s train depot and built a creamery just up the tracks from Geils’ store. But Moehling understood that the fledgling commerce center needed to grow further if his and Wille’s businesses were to thrive. So he recruited others to join them, particularly a young blacksmith named John Meyn. Moehling understood that a community could not survive in those days without a blacksmith. So he found Meyn, moved him to Mount Prospect from Arlington Heights in 1883 and bent over backwards to accommodate him. He even invited Meyn to live with his family and built the young man a blacksmith and wagonmaker shop on the triangle of land that is now bounded by Northwest Highway, Main Street and Busse Avenue. Soon thereafter, Wille gave up on the creamery business and chose to dedicate himself to construction and tavern-keeping. He built Wille Hall, the center of community affairs in Mount Prospect for many years, and Wille Tavern and then he began building houses. He was responsible for the construction of many of Mount Prospect’s early frame homes, commercial buildings and public buildings, including its first public school. Moehling was also working hard during these years. He established a post office in his general store and was named Mount Prospect’s first postmaster in 1885. He also convinced the railroad to establish commuter service from the tiny community’s train depot and was appointed its first depot agent. The industrious German even provided dairy cows to local farmers, driving them into town in herds, and sold farm machinery and buggies from his store. Life in the tiny community trundled along with just the three families until 1894 when William Busse, a grandson of pioneer Friedrich Busse, chose to buy three lots near the Mount Prospect train depot and move his young family there. He had been a deputy Cook County sheriff for four years; was due to be appointed again; and the commute was killing him. He enjoyed traveling the county serving writs, but he needed to be close to the railroad so that he could be at his desk in Chicago every morning. He also needed to live within Elk Grove Township because he

MOUNT PROSPECT Chamber of Commerce IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 4

had political aspirations, so he moved to this aspiring community in the northeast corner of the township. Six years later, in 1900, Busse was elected to the Cook County Board and, fortunately for Mount Prospect, he used his political connections and knowledge to attract businesses, industries and residents to his new-found home. Busse himself opened a store in 1897 and a Buick dealership and a hardware store in the early 1900s. In 1911 he also founded the Mount Prospect National Bank. His siblings and other relatives also moved to the growing community. His brother, Edward, for instance, formed a partnership with a Chicago creamery owner in 1910 and established the Mount Prospect Creamery, which produced bottled milk, cheese and butter from milk produced by local cows. They employed 13 drivers who delivered it around the northwestern Cook County communities and into Chicago. A cousin, Louis Busse, opened a greenhouse and florist business in here in 1916, while two other brothers, George and Ernst, eventually began selling real estate and constructing commercial structures, respectively. His sons, William Jr. and Albert, also became contributors to the Mount Prospect business scene in succeeding years. Meanwhile, other non-Busses also came to town or started businesses here. William Busse lured Crofoot Tools to Mount Prospect in 1905. They built a factory for making stapling and screen-tacking devices here. It was located near today’s water tower. The oldest son of John Meyn, William, built a two-story shop near his father’s blacksmith shop along the tracks. He sold canned foods, breads, fresh meat and some tools. Other businesses that came (and went) included the Utility Battery Company that was based in Chicago and established its factory in Mount Prospect (circa 1913-1923); the Schillo Bros. Pickles, Vinegar, Sauerkraut and Preserves Company that preserved locally-grown cucumbers (opened in 1916); the William Busse Jr. Dry Goods Store; and the locally-owned Northwest Power and Light Company that provided power for Mount Prospect until the plant suffered a devastating fire on Sept. 3, 1921. Samuel Insull’s Public Service Company of Northern Illinois then took over the franchise to provide electric power to Mount Prospect.

Becoming A Community

T

he residents of early Mount Prospect understood that life is about more than just business. So while they were developing and nurturing their businesses, they were simultaneously nurturing themselves and their families by establishing churches and schools, improving the appearance and services of the community, starting a police department and a fire department to protect lives and property, and starting clubs and organizations to entertain residents during their leisure time. They were taking a small commerce center and creating a community of friends and neighbors. First on the priority list for those early residents was the creation of a school. They wanted their children and those of their neighbors to be educated but many dreaded the long walk to the little two-room St. John Lutheran School. The building still stands next to the cemetery on Linneman Road. William Busse joined forces with John Moehling, William Kirchoff, William Seegers, Henry Katz and Henry Mensching in 1895 to take advantage of a new state law that allowed the creation of school districts that crossed township lines. The first vote to establish School District 57 failed but in 1896, another vote was taken and it passed. William Wille was awarded the contract to build a school. School board members directed Wille to build a one-room structure, but refused to allocate funds for cloakrooms. He thought that this was terrible, so Wille added cloakrooms for both the boys and girls and paid for them himself. Central School, which later served as a community gathering place, District 57’s first kindergarten and later as an Episcopal sanctuary, has been moved to 103 S. Maple St. and restored to its original appearance. It will open as a museum early in 2017. Mount Prospect’s citizens, who were hungry to become an official village, chose to make other civic improvements to the area, too, in order to attract more residents so they could reach the required 300 citizens for incorporation. So they organized the Mount Prospect Improvement Association in the fall of 1911 and over the succeeding six years, managed to make many improvements to Mount Prospect including the purchase of kerosene street lamps, the construction of sidewalks, the scraping and oiling of streets and the purchase of firefighting equipment for its

1917-2017 Special Centennial Section IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 5

volunteer department, organized in 1913. But until they incorporated, community leaders had no authority to tax anyone, so they had to rely on the generosity of the citizenry. It was during this time that Fred Biermann, a teamster, and his 14-year-old son, Frank, were recruited by William Busse to bring their team of horses to Mount Prospect to do some grading of the soil to prepare for the construction of streets and sidewalks. They settled in Mount Prospect and also found work digging foundations for local homes, businesses and even St. Paul Lutheran Church. St. Paul Lutheran Church was the culmination of a dream for the German Lutherans living in the little burg. They wanted to worship and go to school closer to home instead of traveling the two-and a-half miles to St. John Lutheran Church and School. So, in the early months of 1912, a group of families banded together to form a new congregation. William and Edward Busse donated two acres of land on the north side of Busse Avenue, between Elm and School Streets, and the original church was built later that year. Rev. J.E.A. Mueller became its first pastor. He arrived in Mount Prospect on New Year’s Day 1913, and delivered his first sermon less than two weeks later. The new church was dedicated in early March and for four years, Rev. Mueller served as both pastor and teacher, instructing as many as 34 children in a one-room schoolhouse built in 1913. The same year that Mount Prospect was incorporated, a schoolteacher, Martin Hasz, was hired and Rev. Mueller was finally able to concentrate exclusively on his ministerial duties. Social and recreational diversions for residents were provided by civic organizations like the Mount Prospect Social Club, which sponsored parties at Wille Hall and occasional picnics and by the Mount Prospect Athletic Club, which organized a baseball league comprised of teams from other towns along the tracks. In a 1967 newspaper interview, Martha Busse Froemling, daughter of Commissioner William Busse, recalled dancing at Wille Hall, playing records on the crank Victrola, enjoying a 10-cent soda at the ice cream parlor, taking the train to piano lessons in Arlington Heights, being in the school play and participating in the annual Truckgardeners’ Picnic as pastimes she and other young people at the time enjoyed.

Incorporation & Baby Norman

M

ount Prospect was finally able to incorporate as a village, with full taxing and ordinance-writing authority like Des Plaines and Arlington Heights had, in February 1917. At that time the state of Illinois required that a community have at least 300 residents to incorporate. The citizens of Mount Prospect dearly wanted to incorporate but there were only 299 people living in the small railroad community at that time. So they had to wait for another baby to be born and hope that none of their more elderly residents died in the meantime. The entire community was literally waiting for a woman to give birth so that the incorporation petition could be submitted to the state, according to many published (and verbal) accounts from the time. It is generally accepted that Norman William Pohlman, oldest child of John Pohlman, railroad depot master, and Anna Louise Meyer Pohlman, was that “magic” baby. He was born on Jan. 31, 1917. “The baby was born. So, the next day the papers went to Springfield and soon the village became a reality,” St. Paul Lutheran Church’s pastor Rev. J.E.A. Mueller recalled in 1960. A vote by the men to incorporate (63 for and 12 against) was held in early February and papers requesting incorporation were signed and sent to Springfield. That is why the Village of Mount Prospect celebrates its official anniversary on Feb. 3. But there are several notable dates that bear mentioning. A caucus was held on March 20, 1917, to nominate the new community’s first trustees. Commissioner William Busse, 52, the acknowledged leader of Mount Prospect, was slate’s village president nominee and he hand-chose the initial trustees: Henry Beigel, a 30-year-old carpenter;

MOUNT PROSPECT Chamber of Commerce IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 6

Louis C. Busse, a florist and the commissioner’s younger brother; Henry Haberkamp, a 45-year-old florist; Ernest Gosch, the 38-year-old school custodian and Creamery worker; Herman Wuerffel, the 28-year-old manager of Utility Battery Company and the local electric company; and John Pohlman, the 28-year-old depot master. Henry Ehard, Busse’s son-in-law, was the village clerk. Mount Prospect’s growing status and exuberance at this time were well recognized by its neighbors, most of whom were more developed than Mount Prospect. In a tongue-in-cheek editorial, the Cook County Herald announced “County Commissioner William Busse has the German ambition that will make his hometown prosperous. The Busseville citizens are united and will not be satisfied until they annex Chicago as a suburb of Greater Mount Prospect.” The slate of candidates was elected on April 17 without opposition, running as the “Citizens’ Ticket.” Then they held their first official trustee meeting around a rough-hewn table in Wille Hall on April 28, after the ceremonial ringing of the fire bell. The men drew lots to see who would get a two-year term and who would get a four-year term on that initial board and they adopted their first two ordinances – establishing the Village of Mount Prospect and regulating and licensing dram shops (they had interesting priorities!). Trustee John Pohlman often told the story of how he came to be on that Citizens’ Ticket. “Commissioner Busse had already picked five men for the board and had two old friends arguing over who should be the sixth,” he said in an undated newspaper article. “The Old Man came down to the station and said, ‘John, you know when to keep your mouth shut and when to listen. I’d like to have you on the board.” He served until 1929, receiving $1.50 per meeting. The incorporation and subsequent election of the initial trustees was a clear demonstration of William Busse’s immense power at that time. Because of his many connections and his strong, fatherly demeanor, Busse was Mount Prospect’s political and social leader for many years so his belief in low taxes and low expenditures prevailed for decades. Another date of note is May 8, 1918. That is when Louis L. Emmerson, Illinois Secretary of State, finally got around to signing Mount Prospect’s incorporation papers in Springfield.

World Wars & Depression

W

hen incorporation was the big local news, the world was worrying about Europe and World War I, a global conflict that lasted from July 1914 to November 1918. Fortunately, the United States refrained from joining the fray until April 1917. Locally, the war hastened the Americanization of Mount Prospect’s heavily German population. Suspicions about German-Americans ran very high here at that time, and speaking German was strongly frowned upon. So St. Paul Lutheran Church saw the writing on the wall and suspended their German-speaking services. In addition, many Mount Prospect residents enlisted, including Edwin Wille, Theodore Heimsoth and Ernst Mensching. Once the war ended, attention turned to domestic matters once again and Mount Prospect experienced its first housing boom. In 1920 the village boasted 349 residents. By 1930, the population had almost quadrupled to 1225 as developers converged on the community to subdivide farms and build homes. One of the first was George Busse who founded the Mount Prospect Development Association in 1922. Chicago’s Real Estate News extolled the virtues of Mount Prospect throughout the 1920s, proclaiming that “there are miles of new pavement, new business blocks, excellent new homes and a new school building.” Other developers including the H. Roy Berry Company and the Lonnquist Company also came to town. By 1927 there were seven real estate agents operating within the village, building scores of homes. Most of the new homeowners were non-Germans. They came from Chicago, spoke English and were generally well educated. Longtime residents welcomed them cautiously. Business was also expanding, as elaborate brick commercial buildings were constructed in Mount Prospect’s central business district and a Businessmen’s Association/Chamber of Commerce was formed. All of that came to a screeching halt, however, in 1930. The disastrous Stock Market Crash in October 1929 had hurt almost everyone and no one was buying new homes anymore. In fact, many people who had bought homes during the 1920s defaulted on them. The Cook County Torrens records are full of foreclosures here during the early 1930s and the financially-strapped Businessmen’s Association ceased operations in 1932.

1917-2017 Special Centennial Section IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 7

The fiscally-conservative officials of Mount Prospect, led by Mayor Herman Meyn, made sure, however, that Mount Prospect was the only municipality in Cook County that was not broke by January 1930, according to the Cook County Herald. But its citizenry was nevertheless struggling. Between 1932 and 1937 up to 46 percent of the village’s homeowners could not or would not pay their taxes. So, the village was forced to lower police salaries. The residents of Mount Prospect dealt with these difficult times by forming a variety of clubs like the Campfire Girls, the Mount Prospect Citizens Band, the Mount Prospect Lions Club, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Mount Prospect Woman’s Club and others. The Woman’s Club even founded a tiny library in the Central School in 1930. Meanwhile, the new residents wanted a “fullfledged English-speaking Protestant church,” according to Leonard Johnson in a 1987 interview in the Daily Herald. So The South Church was established by the Baptists in 1937 and shortly thereafter, the Episcopalians came to town and used the one-room Central School as a sanctuary. Things finally rebounded financially about eight years after the Crash and Mount Prospect residents enjoyed a short period of recovery until the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The United States was once again embroiled in war. Mount Prospect’s citizens became wholeheartedly involved in this war effort, planting Victory Gardens, sending supplies and gifts to servicemen overseas and raising money for the Community War Fund. In addition, a Mount Prospect civilian defense committee was organized to prepare for a possible invasion and young men like Albert and Wilbert Behrens and Adolph Busse Jr. went off to become soldiers. An untold number of older men, as well as young women, contributed to the war effort by going to work in vital factories, replacing young men who had been drafted. The Douglas Aircraft Plant on the site of today’s O’Hare International Airport was where many worked. German prisoners-of-war also replaced the young men who had gone off to fight. They worked on local farms to keep Chicagoans fed and were housed at Camp Pine in the Forest Preserve northeast of Mount Prospect. The prisoners later reported that they were treated well, fed handsomely and paid 80 cents a day. In fact, many corresponded with those Illinois farmers after the War ended.

The Baby/Population Boom

Y

ears spent fighting on distant battlefields or enduring rationing, frightening news reels and heartrending casualty lists, left Americans longing for homes and families when Germany, Italy and Japan finally surrendered. So when they returned, our GIs were ready to settle down and enjoy post-war prosperity. They purchased homes, married younger and had more children than their parents had. The result was a spectacular population explosion, accompanied by a mass migration from the cities to the suburbs. Mount Prospect was one of the communities flooded with young families. Before the War, Mount Prospect’s population was 1,720. By 1950 it had more than doubled to 4,009. It was against this backdrop in 1949 that Township School District 214 asked the voters for approval to add 21 classrooms, a gymnasium, library and cafeteria to Arlington High School which had been built in 1922 to accommodate a maximum of 750 students. The district said it anticipated an enrollment of 1,600 students by 1960 and needed the additional facilities. The voters consented. But growth skyrocketed even more than the district expected. In Mount Prospect alone, between 1950 and 1960, the population increased another 372 percent. So a scant six years later, another high school – Prospect – was under construction because Arlington High School could no longer accommodate the many students flocking to District 214. Even the experts at the Chicago Regional Planning Association were surprised. They had issued a report in late 1954 predicting that Mount Prospect’s population would grow dramatically to 11,000 in 1960, 19,000 in 1970 and 26,000 in 1980. But Mount Prospect’s population actually grew to 18,906 in 1960, 34,994 in 1970 and 52,634 in 1980. While growth was exciting, leading village trustees to annex more and more of the surrounding farmland, it also caused serious growing pains. Schools needed to be built, as did a real library. Roads, sidewalks and sewers needed to be improved and expanded. Zoning laws had to be updated and toughened in order to deal with the influx of developers wanting to build homes, businesses and factories. The water supply, refuse collection system and police and fire protection also had to be dealt with and expanded. And as more open fields disappeared, flooding became a concern.

MOUNT PROSPECT Chamber of Commerce IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 8

By 1954 the growing pains had become so severe that a group of residents suggested that the village board suspend the practice of annexation since it was the source of most of the Village’s growth. But village leaders decided that it was better to face strained village facilities than to relinquish control over the course of nearby development. Records show that during that year alone, permits were issued for the construction of 688 new homes in Mount Prospect and in 1957 the money to be made by buying real estate in Mount Prospect was even mentioned in Clyde Cadwallader’s book Buy Real Estate and Prosper. In addition, Weber Addressograph Machine Company had chosen the community for an 11-acre industrial park with space for eight office buildings or light industrial plants just south of the railroad tracks. The boom was destined to continue for more than two more decades. By late 1960 Randhurst Shopping Center was underway and Mount Prospect Plaza, a strip shopping center, was being constructed one mile southeast. Four years later discussions began about the probable annexation of Old Orchard Country Club, Bluett Fairview Gardens subdivision on the west side of Wolf Road, just north of Central Road and the 300-acre Northern Illinois Gas property (which eventually became Kensington Business Center). Nowhere was the growth of the 1960s greater, however, than in the Feehanville area that was served by River Trails School District 26 and a small portion of Wheeling School District 21. So, in 1971 Mount Prospect chose to expand its borders to the north and east, annexing that area, too. At the time it was the largest single population annexation in the history of Illinois, encompassing two square miles and 9,000 people. The 1970s brought ever-increasing costs, however, which outweighed revenues, so the village administration, led by Mayor Robert Teichert, chose to allow multi-family units on the south end of the village, arguing that they were more cost-effective than single-family homes in terms of public services. The Teichert administration also felt that if they had their own plan for bringing low- and moderate-income housing to the village, that that would protect them from federally-mandated housing projects, according to newspaper reports at the time. Having such a plan in place also assured that Mount Prospect would be eligible for federal Community Development Act funds.

Public Services

R

egional infrastructure improvements brought new residents to Mount Prospect, but also brought the need for expensive service enhancements. Two of the three tollways that the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority initially built, the Tri-State Tollway and the Northwest Tollway (now known as the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway), improved access to Mount Prospect even further. When the tollways opened in 1958, they forever changed the face of the Northwest suburbs. Then there was O’Hare Airport on Mount Prospect’s southern border. Commercial jet aviation arrived there in 1959 and over a 33-month period the old Orchard Field airport was replaced by O’Hare Field. Roads, farms and golf courses disappeared overnight as bulldozers made way for terminal buildings, hangars, runways, parking lots and expressways. This gateway to the rest of the world made Mount Prospect even more attractive, especially to executives who could now travel by air in search of customers and suppliers. They liked living in close proximity to it. The resulting increase in Mount Prospect residents, many of whom had grown up in the city and were accustomed to mass transportation, public libraries, parks and other such services and facilities, brought increased demand for public services. Massive migration to Mount Prospect in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s forced village leaders to switch gears quickly. There were definitely growing pains, too, as taxpayers balked at tax bills rising to pay for improvements their neighbors wanted. For instance, a 2450-square-foot library was erected in 1950 with private money donated by organizations and individuals. It wasn’t until 11 years later, after twice denying the library funds to enlarge, that voters finally approved money for an addition and by 1966, the building had been increased to 12,000 square feet. Taxpayers were feeling the burden of expansion. In 1950 they built Lincoln Junior High to ease crowding in Central Standard School which had been built in 1927. In 1955 they had approved a referendum calling for the creation of the Mt. Prospect Park District. Soon thereafter, they also approved a measure to spend $3.5 million to build Prospect High School. Between 1953 and 1963 District 57 was also forced to build, and

1917-2017 Special Centennial Section IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 9

its taxpayers forced to fund, six schools – Fairview, Lions Park, Busse, Sunset Park, Westbrook and Gregory. This is even more astonishing when you consider the fact that there were four parochial schools educating children in town, too. Shortly after the formation of the Mt. Prospect Park District, the Mount Prospect Lions Club donated 12 acres of land for the first park. The growth that followed in disparate parts of the district created the modern park district we know today. There was also progress being made in the Feehanville area, northeast of Mount Prospect, which would be annexed into Mount Prospect in 1971. In 1959, School District 26 had only a two-room rural schoolhouse serving 238 students. Twelve years later enrollment had grown to 3,180 students and the newly-named River Trails School District 26 was a modern district with seven buildings. In 1965 the River Trails Park District was formed to serve much of that same population. Within the first four years they had acquired five parks and had gotten the voters to approve a bond issue to construct a swimming pool and an administration building. Six years after that they acquired the Rob Roy driving range property and during the 1980s were able to purchase the current nine-hole golf course. The village’s 50th anniversary in 1967 prompted the founding of the Mount Prospect Historical Society the following year. Residents had discovered their history and wanted an organized way to preserve it for generations to come. The society was initially based in the 1901 St. John Lutheran School on Linneman Road, but in 1992 its headquarters was moved to the current museum campus in the downtown area, only two blocks from the library. The 1896 one-room Central School was moved to the campus in 2008. Mount Prospect had grown so much by 1974 that the 12,000-square-foot library could no longer meet the community’s needs. So the village board voted to construct a new library on the site of Central Standard School at Central Road and Route 83. That is the library that continues to serve the community today, although it now sports a second floor, added in 2004. Other public facilities were also expanded to keep pace with Mount Prospect’s growth. The Village built a new public works facility in 1988; a new police and fire headquarters in 1993; a new village hall in 2005; and a new north side fire station in 2010.

Modern Businesses

A

community’s quality of life is largely determined by the health of its business community. Businesses not only provide jobs to area residents, but also pay taxes that alleviate the residential tax burden to fund roads, schools, parks, libraries and other public resources that every community relies on. Consequently, Mount Prospect actively sought out, and continues to seek out, businesses to locate in the community. Development activity in the village accelerated toward the end of World War II. Illinois Range Company established their headquarters on Central Road in 1944. Owned by Philip Jeuck, a Mount Prospect resident, IRC was a leading supplier of custom stainless steel equipment for the preparation and serving of food like food prep counters and sinks, hoods and canopies. At its peak it employed 225 people here. Famous customers included McDonald’s, Great America and Comiskey Park. But they also supplied their products to school and hospital cafeterias, restaurants and private clubs. IRC suspended its Mount Prospect operations in 1995. During the early 1950s Mount Prospect was also the “birthplace” of a product known worldwide today. Local resident George Stephen, who worked for Weber Brothers Metal Works in Arlington Heights, invented the Weber Grill by cutting a metal buoy in half, drilling holes in both the bottom and the lid and adding two wire grates. Stephen had developed a love for outdoor cooking but was frustrated with the open brazier grilling technique available at the time. He promoted his product in a grassroots campaign, demonstrating it at local hardware stores, Lions Park and on Chicago television programs. By 1954 he was selling his grills in earnest, so he purchased the Weber Brothers company and re-named it Weber-Stephen Products. Today it is the world’s leading manufacturer of barbecue grills, smokers and grilling accessories, headquartered in Palatine. In the late 1950s the Charles Bruning Company, a manufacturer of duplicating and printing equipment, chose to establish their headquarters at the corner of Central Road and Arthur Street on the western edge of the village. At its peak it employed 1500 people but was purchased in 1990 by a competitor, AM Multigraphics. Five years later they closed down operations in Mount Prospect. Their 40-acre facility was eventually taken over by 3COM, a digital electronics manufacturer known for its computer networking products. Market contractions led 3COM (by then known as U.S. Robotics) to leave Mount Prospect and in 2004 the space was transformed into the North American headquarters for Robert

Bosch Tool Corporation’s Skil/Bosch Power Tool Division. The first indoor, air-conditioned shopping mall in the upper Midwest opened in Mount Prospect in 1962. Randhurst featured three anchor stores and scores of smaller stores and restaurants. The center went through a major renovation in the mid-1980s, then was torn down in 2009. In 2011 an outdoor lifestyle community called Randhurst Village replaced it. United Air Lines came to an unincorpo-rated area on the southern end of Mount Prospect in 1972, initially building a two-story reservation facility. The 108-acre campus became the airline’s world headquarters (now located in the Willis Tower in Chicago) and a portion of the property now houses United’s worldwide data center, which annexed to the village. Discussions are underway to annex the remainder of the property. Many United employees call Mount Prospect “home.” Concerns about the business climate in downtown Mount Prospect escalated by the mid-1970s, as more and more shoppers flocked to large shopping centers. Newspaper articles with photos showing empty downtown parking spaces abounded, so village officials began a 30-year effort to redevelop the downtown. The “Busse-Wille Plan” to revitalize the downtown with new business facades came in the early 1980s. Through the use of a tax-increment finance district, a major renovation plan took root in 1994 when the Clocktower condominiums/retail project was approved for the land between Pine and Wille Streets, south of Central Road. A TIF district requires major tax recipients (park districts, schools, libraries) to give up a portion of tax growth increases for a maximum of 23 years to help facilitate business investment in areas considered blighted. Robust development throughout downtown continues. Meanwhile, south and east of Randhurst Shopping Center, a 300-acre parcel once owned by Northern Illinois Gas, was developed into the Kensington Business Center in the mid-1980s, drawing businesses like Cummins-Allison, Prospect Fastener and NTN Corporation to the attractive office park. It continues to provide a major tax boost to Mount Prospect, as well as to the River Trails Park District and River Trails School District 26. Its newest major addition is the Mount Prospect Ice Arena. KBC is experiencing its highest occupancy rate in years. One of the firms located there is CVS/Caremark, the nation’s premier integrated pharmacy services provider. In 2011 the company obtained a second, larger Mount Prospect facility on Wall Street, closer to O’Hare, and by 2013 had transformed it into a regional distribution facility which has the capacity to employ up to 500 people.

Looking to the Future

W

hen celebrating a milestone anniversary, it’s only natural to look back on the past and recognize the people and events that got us to today. As important, if not more so, is to reflect on our future. Mount Prospect is a welcoming, nurturing and special place to live. Our job as elected officials and residents alike is to ensure we continue to foster the community spirit, neighborhood engagement and business support that make our village one of the best places to raise a family, start a successful business and enjoy a vibrant and affordable quality of life. Recognizing this, the village board adopted a strategic plan to inform and inspire everyone who wants to know us better and who has responsibility for our future. Our vision is to represent the best of suburban communities – thriving, proud, diverse and connected – having a rich heritage, strong values and a timeless yet contemporary atmosphere. Further recognizing that social, demographic and economic changes are the rule, rather than the exception, and that a static set of strategies is self-defeating, our mission was deliberately crafted to call for adaptive leadership and leading-edge service delivery. That is the cornerstone of our future. Our founding visionaries understood that. They transformed our agrarian horse and buggy community into a community and business center that thrived on new technologies and industry. We continue to adapt, while keeping an eye on the vision that sustains us. One need only look at Randhurst Village and Kensington Business Center to know that changes are swift. We have embraced change: business occupancy is excellent at both locations! Downtown is more vibrant than it has ever been in my memory and our focus on service improvement to the southern end of our village demonstrates our commitment to the entire village. Demographic changes are driving a focus on housing and community engagement for both seniors and millennials. Adaptive leadership executed with sound fiscal policy will ensure our long

1917-2017 Special Centennial Section IL-MOU-CW-16 Centennial Insert.indd 11

term sustainability. We have to keep our finger on the pulse of the marketplace if we aren’t to be left in the dust of history. It is worthwhile to reiterate our strategic plan’s guiding principles:  Respectfully engage all stakeholders in the exchange of thoughts, ideas and opinions.  Listen well and be fully present.  Be ethical in all things.  Maintain a positive, optimistic attitude.  Commit to service for the good of the community.  Use sound analysis and decision making practices.  Work towards consensus wherever possible and support the final decision. We are fortunate that in addition to the village board and staff, so many of our community leaders, businesses and residents have adopted these principles as their own, whether consciously or not. That is a huge reason for our success. I invite the entire community to engage in sustaining a vibrant community that meets the continuum of present and future needs of all our residents and businesses. Sincerely,

Arlene A. Juracek Arlene A. Juracek Mayor

Economic Development

M

ount Prospect is living up to its historic name as it approaches its 100th birthday. It has “high prospects for the future” as the economy continues to improve and both local and national businesses choose to locate and improve properties here. The village’s participation/tax investment in the redevelopment of Randhurst Mall into Randhurst Village several years ago is paying dividends as businesses jockey to locate their businesses on the roads leading to that shopping and dining destination. The Rand Road corridor, for instance, is booming, according to Bill Cooney, community development director. The empty space where Joe Mitchell Buick once stood has been purchased by a development firm that is proposing a multi-tenant commercial project for the site. Farther north, an Andy’s Custard, a 1950s-style frozen custard store, will be built on the site of the old Wendy’s restaurant. Construction is expected to start this fall with a spring opening planned. Potbelly will open a restaurant on the site of the old McDonald’s (next to Chik-Fil-A). A new McDonald’s opened across the street this past spring. Next to it, Starbuck’s is planning to build a stand-alone store soon. There is also booming activity at Randhurst Village. Chase Bank is relocating across Euclid Avenue into Prospect Heights in November, making way for the demolition of the five-story office building on the corner of Elmhurst Road and Euclid Avenue next spring. Cooney expects construction to begin next summer on two new restaurants slated for that corner, with openings in late 2017 or early 2018. Construction will also commence soon on an additional out-lot restaurant and retail strip just north of Panera and Nothing Bundt Cakes. It is expected

to primarily house retailers. In addition, Noodles & Company is expected to soon replace Pei Wei in the out-lot space next to Naf Naf Grill. Improvements are also on tap for the downtown area. The property at Central and Elmhurst Roads is continuing to work its way through the process. The environmental clean-up there is complete and Cooney expects an auction of the property to take place during the fourth quarter of 2016. The village currently has a $650,000 lien on the property, so that will be the opening bid at the auction. If someone outbids them, the village will be repaid and then the State of Illinois will receive any excess since the property has remained unclaimed. Cooney said the property is available for one of three uses: a three-story residential development, a mixed-use development with businesses on the first floor and residential above, similar to the building where Oberweis is located or a single retailer like a drug store. Along Northwest Highway where Tri-State Electronics once stood, construction is finally due to start this fall. A 12,000-square-foot strip center called “Mount Prospect Station” will be built. It will be anchored by a Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant and a couple of other restaurants are also expected to locate there, Cooney said. Trezeros Kitchen + Tap, the new Italian restaurant in the former Jake’s Pizza building, opened this summer to rave reviews on its menu and its eco-friendly wine tapper system. It joins Bar 145 on Busse Avenue, which is also new to the downtown scene within the past year. Canta Napoli at the corner of Busse Avenue and Emerson Street also re-opened in early fall under new management, offering an expanded menu and a wine bar. There is also some interest in re-developing the long vacant former

real estate office just south of the tracks on Main Street at Evergreen Avenue, across from Fannie May, Cooney said. Environmental clean-up is involved because the space was once occupied by a gas station and there are buried tanks. Golf Plaza II at Golf and Elmhurst Roads is also about to undergo a major renovation. The plan is to do some demolition at the plaza and add more retail space fronting on Golf Road. Architectural and parking lot improvements of the entire plaza are also planned. In addition, KD Market, which currently has stores in Schiller Park, Schaumburg and Wheeling, will move into the former Dominick’s store by Thanksgiving. Walgreen’s is also expected to relocate into a new stand-alone building just south of Boston Market along Elmhurst Road. Elsewhere in the village, Sam’s Beauty, an online retailer of beauty products, has chosen to move from Morton Grove to a 100,000 square-foot facility in the Kensington Business Center, taking one of the center’s last large vacancies. This is great news because Sam’s Beauty is a growing business with approximately 50 employees. In addition, Mount Prospect will receive sales tax revenue from their exclusivelyonline sales, Cooney said. The new Mount Prospect Ice Arena also opened recently in a Kensington Business

Center space. Ice time in the northwest suburbs is in hot demand, and this new facility should bring lots of hockey and figure skaters to the area on a regular basis. Just south of the tracks in downtown, the property occupied by ParentiRaffaelli is being considered for residential development. Ideally, Cooney said he would like to see multi-family rentals which would appeal to young professionals who could easily commute to Chicago via the train. In addition, an eight-acre senior development featuring independent living, as well as a nursing home and memory care unit has been proposed along Linneman Road, south of Golf Road, across from the historic St. John Lutheran Church/cemetery/two-room school. The congregation’s 1958 school would be demolished and construction would follow. Negotiations are underway even farther south for the annexation of approximately 100 acres, including the United Airlines headquarters property. Cooney said he hopes that the annexation discussions will be complete early in 2017. A long-term development plan for the area is currently being developed which will be enhanced by the opening during the first quarter of 2017 of the new I-90 interchange at Elmhurst Road, allowing drivers access to both the west and the east for the first time.

and ladders, which reminds many shoppers of Door County. “This is a destination store and people come here from communities ranging from Chicago to Barrington, Skokie, as well as the local neighborhood,” Burman said. “Many people still tell us that they saw us on the Channel 9 news last summer!” The Wildbird Shack is a drop-off site for the Chicago Bird Collision Monitors (CBCM), a non-profit volunteer project within the Chicago Audubon Society, for injured birds of all species. Burman and Levy have taken in cardinal, geese, hawks and many other species and coordinated with CBCM to transport the birds out to the Willowbrook Wildlife Center in Glen Ellyn for rehabilitation. The women also reach out to the community by bringing their “Soaring Feathers” program on birds to several local schools and through their “Tranquil Feathers” outreach to senior communities, offering lectures on birding to independent living residents as well as designing colorful and interesting outdoor bird watching facilities and programs for seniors with cognitive issues. Several rehabilitation facilities have also engaged The Wildbird Shack to create bird watching venues at their facilities so that patients may choose a holistic alternative to pain medications, Burman explained. Burman and Levy are also “regulars” at the Mount Prospect Farmer’s Market every Sunday during the growing season. “We are so excited about how the community of Mount Prospect has embraced us,” Burman added.

HEARTH & HOME

530 Northwest Hwy. • Mount Prospect, IL 60056 (847) 259-7550 • www.hearthandhomeusa.com The O’Donnell family has been a fixture in the Mount Prospect business community since 1971 when Bob O’Donnell opened Owl Appliance and Heating on West Busse Avenue. He sold appliances, barbecue grills and gas logs in that original store. In 1980, O’Donnell and his son. Pat, who had by this time joined the business, changed the name of their business to Hearth and Home and moved to a larger location on Northwest Highway. Later that decade they moved to a 5,000-square-foot showroom at 530 Northwest Highway, where they remain today; dropped kitchen appliances; expanded their fireplace offerings and added patio furniture to their inventory. “Today we have out-lived almost all of our local, independent competition and while we still sell barbecue grills and patio furniture, most of what we do is fireplace related,” said Pat O’Donnell, president. “We only carry the best manufacturers and our staff is very knowledgeable, going through rigorous training and certification testing. In fact, we have the most National Fireplace Institute (NFI)-Certified Hearth Specialists on staff here of any store in all of Illinois. That is what sets us apart from

our competition. After all, we are putting controlled fire into customers’ homes, so we better know what we are doing and be safe,” O’Donnell said. There are currently five O’Donnell family members on staff at Hearth and Home full-time, with an additional family member who helps out as needed. “The third generation of our family is now involved in our thriving business, which is one of the oldest in Mount Prospect,” he added.

emaining on the cutting edge of recreational trends and constantly re-evaluating the way in which they are serving the evolving needs of their residents is a top priority of the leadership teams of both the Mt.

programming will accommodate increased participation. Exciting adjustments will be made along the way in order to offer our residents the most comprehensive programming possible. There is a great deal to consider and we will do so carefully.” Also new this fall will be improved playgrounds at Clearwater and We-Go Parks, he said. The park district is also enthusiastically preparing to help celebrate Mount Prospect’s Centennial in 2017, giving all of its annual events a Centennial spin, Taylor noted. This will include their Spring Mardi Gras celebration in the spring, Strive for 5K race, annual golf outing held in conjunction with the Mount Prospect Chamber and the summer concert series at Lions Park. The park district is even planning a summer art program that will teach participants arts and crafts that were popular in 1917. The Mt. Prospect Parks Foundation, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2017, is also planning a “20/20” fund-raiser to raise $20,000 to replace trees throughout the park district that succumbed to the recent Emerald Ash Borer infestation. 

MT. PROSPECT PARK DISTRICT The Mt. Prospect Park District has added an ice component to its successful skating program. The new privately-owned Mount Prospect Ice Arena opened at 1501 Feehanville Dr. in the Kensington Business Center in late August and became the official home of the Mt. Prospect Park District’s new ice sports programs. The district has long had an extensive inline skating program at its Central Community Center, 1000 W. Central Road. “We are building this new program from the ground up, starting with learn to skate programs for those three and up, hockey programs for youth, ages four and up, and youth and adult leagues,” said Brian Taylor, Director of Recreation. “As we grow, additional

barriers. It is supposed to enhance self-confidence and critical thinking skills. “This is the kind of urban gymnastics activity made popular by the “Ninja Warrior” television show,” said Bret Fahnstrom, executive director of the River Trails Park District. “I connected with the organization, Super Hero Academy of Motion Arts, after our 2K Youth Obstacle Course race last fall. I knew that Parkour was a growing trend, they had a vision for a program and I had the facility available. So we got together to offer Parkour to our communities.” The Parkour gym, which opened in late May, features both high and low obstacles, a climbing wall, a 20-foot rope, rings, a 25-foot foam pit and even a 14-foot warp wall which you climb after running up a ramp and jumping. “This new facility has been very well received and while it is currently geared to youth, we are developing ways to build larger obstacles more suited to older youth and adults. The entire process has been very exciting,” Fahnstrom said. There is also an adjacent indoor athletic turf field that can be rented out for soccer, camps and birthday parties, so there is now a lot of flexibility when it comes to use of the 550 Business Center Dr. facility, he added.

RIVER TRAILS PARK DISTRICT In May of this year the River Trails Park District recently opened one of the few dedicated Parkour gyms in the state of Illinois. The Zone, as it is known, is located at 550 Business Center Dr. in the Kensington Business Center. Parkour, also known as Street Running, is a training discipline that uses movements that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners work to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assistive equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible. Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging and other movements that are deemed most suitable for the situation. It is like a non-combative martial art. Developed in France during the late 1980s, Parkour involves seeing one’s environment in a new way and imagining the potential for navigating it by moving around, across, through, over and under its features. The idea is to overcome mental and emotional obstacles as well as physical
