RESIDENTIAL LIVING Some of the glories of calling Waukegan your home are obvious: A location along the shore of blue Lake Michigan, within easy commuting range of downtown Chicago and at a fraction of the price you would pay compared to most of Chicago’s “North Shore” suburbs. A settled, long-established town that allows homebuyers and renters to choose from homes in a wide variety of styles, ages and price points. A diverse population mirroring the rainbow of people who make up America. Less commonly known is how Lake County’s county seat and biggest city has become a center of the fine arts, a magnet for big-name entertainment and a center for boating and summer fun. James D. Smith, a Realtor with RE/MAX Showcase, grew up in Lake County and currently works in the Waukegan area. Smith said this convergence of positives has led to an explosion of demand for Waukegan homes, greater than any he has seen in his 28 years in the business. “Housing is definitely more affordable in Waukegan than other northern suburbs,” Smith said. “Property values have increased about 50 percent in a year and now there is more demand for homes in Waukegan than there are properties on the market. A lot of times people will put their home on the market and end up with multiple offers.” Chicago is just an hour south of Waukegan on Metra Rail’s Union Pacific North Line. Along the way riders can make stops at Ravinia music park, Naval Station Great Lakes and Northwestern University. The Pace commuter bus service provides rides within Waukegan. Interstate 94 and other highways connect Waukegan, not only

Historic homes line Sheridan Road in Waukegan.

with the Windy City, but with Milwaukee and Kenosha, Wisconsin, which are just a short drive to the north. Highways also take commuters to the numerous corporate headquarters and office parks that are located in other Lake and northern Cook County suburbs. “I work with a lot of people who either grew up in Waukegan or went to school there, and with all the improvements that are being made, they want to stay in the city,” Smith said. Along the city’s harbor, a festival area called Harbor’s Edge will be expanded to include Siver Park across the street, plus a new stage, temporary retail space and a three-season pavilion. In summer 2017 that area hosted five music and food festivals, featuring more than 40 local, regional and international musical and cultural acts, spanning country, blues and Latino genres. A monthly project with the punning name “ArtWauk” also has helped turn downtown

ILWAUCW18 design_after crash.indd 14

“A lot of times people will put their home on the market and end up with multiple offers.”

Waukegan into a beehive of activity for visual artists. Also downtown is the almost-century-old Genesee Theatre that has been taken over by the city and totally renovated. It now draws people from all over the region to see shows by a who’s-who of A-list musicians and comedians each week. Meanwhile, the local Three Brothers Theatre stages live community theater. Smith said this spirit of rehab has extended into the residential neighborhoods too, as the many homes left over from the 19th- and early 20th century attract people who yearn to live in a “painted lady” or some other Victorian or Georgian abode. “I actually sold a home on Julian Street that Abraham Lincoln had slept in,” Smith said. Rehabbed or not, Waukegan offers the homebuyer a wide variety of choices, from classic Victorian to mid-century ranch, from vintage farmhouse to mail-order bungalow.

WAUKEGAN PARK DISTRICT

There is something for everyone at the Waukegan Park District. PROGRAMS AND EVENTS The Waukegan Park District offers yearround, programs and special events that are family focused and entertain the entire community. The annual lineup begins with the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge at the Lakefront. The event, sponsored by the park district, City of Waukegan and Chamber of Commerce, attracts close to 2,000 people; nearly 400 of them jump into the icy waters of Lake Michigan to support special recreation athletes. Eggstravaganza Trail, a free community event, held the Saturday before Easter, showcases the Easter Bunny and family, all interacting with children and handing out eggs filled with goodies. Two events occur on the first day of June: the Fishing Derby at Bevier Park and the free Ray Bradbury Dandelion Wine Festival at Bowen Park with art, vendors and performances throughout the day. The American Independence Parade, held the Sunday before July 4, is the largest annual special event of the year with almost 100 parade entries. The parade travels from Franklin Avenue to Bowen Park on Sheridan Road. Touch a Truck and National Night Out on the first Friday in August, held at the lakefront in partnership with the city, gives children an opportunity to meet fire and police personnel and experience many big vehicles and trucks. Two fall events at Bowen Park are Day of the Dead, a cultural celebration of family and ancestors, and Halloweenfest, which attracts entire families who are in costume. They enjoy free games, crafts, themed entertainment and rides.

HISTORY Housed in an 1843 Victorian home, the Waukegan Historical Society museum contains relics from 189 years of the city’s past, including a bed once slept in by a future president named Lincoln and the authentic reproduction of a typical family home in the 1870s. To fans of pop culture all over the world, Waukegan will forever be known as the hometown of comedian Jack Benny The Genesee Theatre was built in 1927. and science fiction/fantasy author Ray Bradbury. million with the help of over 120 volunteers. Perhaps it was only natural that Jack Benny The Genesee reopened on Dec. 3, 2004 and has – who was born Benny Kubelsky and lived in been reclaiming its old glory ever since.

Ty Rohrer, museum supervisor for the The Genesee is now complemented by Waukegan Historical Society, said those the nearby nonprofit Three Brothers theater connections began very early for the city. A company, which describes itself as “an ensemble local inventor, Edward Amet, was among of artists … dedicated to the belief that theatres many around the world at the turn of the 20th should be driven by artists.” Our mission is century who raced to be the first to develop to create theatre that is different, vital and the motion-picture camera.

The comedian also came back when School District 60 dedicated Jack Benny Middle School. Rohrer said Benny, who pretended to be a lousy violin player as part of his act, last visited the city as a guest performer for the first-ever performance of the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra. Another world-famous native was Ray Bradbury (“Fahrenheit 451,” “The Martian Chronicles”). His fictional city of Green Town, mentioned in such works as “Dandelion Wine” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” was largely based on Waukegan. Before he died in 2012, the community created a Bradbury Walk, guiding guests along a walking tour through the city that stops at sites important to the artist’s life and writings. More than 50 movies as well as several television shows have been filmed in Waukegan, including parts of “The Blues Brothers,” “Groundhog Day,” “Batman Begins” and most recently “Chicago Fire.” The historic Genesee Theatre attracts the top names in show business.

HISTORIC THEATER At one time the city had 40 theaters. During the Roaring ’20s the premiere entertainment venue was the Genesee Theatre, which was built in 1927 at a then eye-popping cost of $1 million. Lake County residents swarmed there to watch not only movies but traveling vaudeville shows, plays and concerts. Remarkably, the historic Genesee has again become the premiere venue 90 years later. As the movie business moved to giant multiplexes, the Waukegan gem went out of business in 1989 and sat empty for a decade. But the City of Waukegan purchased the building in 1999 and began renovations at a cost of almost $23 17

ARTS AND CULTURE

“Waukegan is known as that destination to come experience art,” city spokesman David Motley has said. One of the biggest reasons is a monthly event punningly named ArtWauk.

Co. and the Three Brothers Theatre. The organizers for Art Wauk explain that “the basic model is this: A property owner gives keys to a small retail space to one of our ArtWauk artists. The artist rallies the troops to re-paint walls, scrub the windows and floors, replace lighting, and turn the space into a professional gallery, recruiting more artists and hanging a show. The whole volunteer force then turns into a marketing machine, distributing thousands of fliers by hand and utilizing social media to draw crowds downtown. The ROI for the property owners is hundreds of people walking through their spaces, looking at our signs reminding them that the property is available for rent. Every single one of the spaces we worked on has now been rented to a paying tenant. “Property owners have been thrilled, business owners are making money, and the overall perception of downtown has dramatically improved.”

FILLING DOWNTOWN PROPERTIES WITH ART The concept of the wauk/walk was first developed in 2002 by Waukegan artists to fill vacant downtown properties with art. Since 2011 an Art Wauk has been held on the third Saturday of every month, giving visitors a chance to tour art galleries, hear music, and enjoy food and drink in as many as 20 locations. Every month different artwork, artists and spaces are involved. Locations participating include the Karcher Art Loft, the Family Piano

TOP GALLERY EXHIBITS ATTRACT VISITORS Galleries participating in ArtWauk have hosted internationally, nationally and locally known artists who work in a variety of media with diverse themes. Internationally known contemporary visual artist Trevor Bell’s warehouse-sized abstracts were featured in Urban Edge Gallery. Sculptor Bruce Niemi, whose works appear throughout the United States, was integral to the exhibit entitled “Texture.” A curated show from the Richard Harris Art Collection attracted firsttime visitors to Waukegan, including families in town for graduation at Naval Station Great Lakes, art enthusiasts from Chicago and Milwaukee, and Genesee Theatre patrons who made a point of arriving early specifically to see the exhibit. Original works by Rembrandt, ToulouseLautrec, van Ultrect, Albrecht Dürer, Jasper Johns, Marcos Raya and Robert Mapplethorpe were among the museum-quality pieces featured.

EDUCATION Waukegan provides excellent learning opportunities for its students at the elementary, high school and college levels. WAUKEGAN DISTRICT 60 The largest school district in Lake County, Waukegan District 60 serves about 17,000 students from prekindergarten through 12th grade. It entered the 2017-2018 school year with a reorganized high school, a new summer school program, after-school sports and academics and an expanded project to equip every older student with a laptop computer. Since 2009, Waukegan High School students had been randomly attending either the school’s Washington Campus or its Brookside Campus. But under a reorganization that began in fall 2017, all juniors and seniors now attend the Washington Campus while all freshmen and sophomores go to the campus on Brookside Avenue. The shift included a physical makeover of Washington’s facilities in summer 2017, to be followed by work at Brookside in summer 2018. No matter which campus they use, Waukegan High students each have been issued a Chromebook laptop since 2015. “Once students saw the benefit of that, the desire quickly grew to expand this program,” said Nicholas Alajakis, Waukegan District 60 spokesman, and the district now offers every middle-school student a Chromebook, too. “Technology is the future,” Alajakis said. “The way students are learning today is changing monthly, not just every year.” In grades K-5, meanwhile, the district has added three new after-school activities for children. Programs named Strive High and On The Move give extra support for literacy skills.

“The way students are learning today is changing monthly, not just every year.” – Nicholas Alajakis Waukegan School District 60

JAMS offers after-school sports programs in basketball, indoor soccer, outdoor soccer and volleyball. Fourth- and fifth-graders compete in teams while younger kids learn the ropes in sports clinics. Acting on requests from parents, the district started offering summer school for students in kindergarten through eighth grade in summer 2017. “In summer 2018 we’re looking to expand that by offering more seats,” Alajakis said. “This is helping students to prepare for the next grade and to give them enriching curriculum in English, math and the STEM fields, during the time when that summer loss often takes hold.” COLLEGE OF LAKE COUNTY The College of Lake County’s Lakeshore Campus offers residents of northeast Lake County an opportunity to pursue higher education close to home. The campus is located at 33 N. Genesee St. in downtown Waukegan. It offers courses leading to associate degrees and

2018 COMMUNITY RESOURCE GUIDE & MEMBER DIRECTORY

ILWAUCW18 design_after crash.indd 22

several career preparation certificate programs, including dental hygiene, phlebotomy, nurse assisting and medical assisting. The campus also offers high school equivalency preparation courses, English as a Second Language and noncredit continuing education courses. On-site student support services include counseling, advising, registration, financial aid, tutoring, computer labs, a writing center, the nationally accredited Children’s Learning Center, free covered parking, a library, student life and outreach. An exciting $48 million construction project to expand and consolidate the Lakeshore Campus will offer even greater educational opportunities. Plans call for creating a vibrant streetscape along Genesee Street, Madison Street and Sheridan Road, the site of a new building with sweeping views of Lake Michigan from a top-floor meeting and conference center. The project also includes renovating CLC’s buildings at 33 and 111 N. Genesee St., creating attractive outdoor spaces and building a second-story bridge from the college’s parking garage to the buildings. A request for construction bids is expected to go out in early 2019, with construction planned to start in fall 2019 and be completed in 2022.

MEDLINE Medline is the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies uniquely positioned to provide products, education and support across the continuum of care. Medline’s ability to bring best practices from one care setting to another – from large health care systems and independent physician practices to home health patients and their families, is what sets them apart. Their team is made up of clinicians, researchers, engineers, financial experts and 1,200 direct sales representatives with outstanding expertise. They know the health care business from the bottom up and top down. We are proud to have Medline Industries as The City of Waukegan Chamber of Commerce’s newest corporate sponsor in 2018!

FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC & SPORTS REHAB Family Chiropractic & Sports Rehab was founded by Waukegan native, and Waukegan Chamber Board member, Dr. Michael J. Reed. Stemming from a lifelong interest in natural health, Dr. Reed acquired two bachelor’s degrees; one in biology and microbiology from Western Illinois University and the other in life science. This is in addition to a doctorate in chiropractic and master’s in sports medicine and rehab from Logan College Chiropractic. Dr. Reed treats a variety of ailments and injuries, as well as wellness patients ranging from newborns to professional athletes. He is also a certified EMT. In addition to treating back and neck pain, Dr. Reed uses spinal decompression, manipulation, muscle myofascial release, and state-of-the-art physiotherapy modalities to treat conditions such as herniated discs, rib pain, pinched nerves, carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder tendonitis, tennis elbow, arch and foot pain and plantar fasciitis. Pregnant women benefit from chiropractic visits to relieve stress to their bodies caused by weight gain associated with pregnancy. Regular visits can reduce pain in the lower back and between the shoulder blades as well as minimize, and in many cases eliminate, headaches and nausea. Other conditions treated: • Allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, headaches, osteoarthritis, sciatica and sprains and strains. • Accident-, sports- and work-related injuries. For more information, call Family Chiropractic & Sports Rehab at (224) 6378335 or visit www.familychiropracticsportsrehab.com.
