Our Mission
We are a group of citizens who want to safeguard the distinctive character, history and architectural integrity of the Glen Ellyn community through historic preservation, planning and sensible growth.

The members of Citizens for Glen Ellyn Preservation came together because of their concern about the number of teardowns in the Village of Glen Ellyn, the types of buildings targeted for teardowns and the size of the structures replacing those buildings.

We believe that Glen Ellyn can preserve its cultural history and built-environment just as other cities,
towns and villages are doing throughout Illinois and the country. Our goal is not to stop teardowns altogether, but encourage the Village government to reduce the rate of teardowns of homes and buildings that are historically and architecturally significant.

We believe that citizens joining together can make a difference and that we can bring another point of
view to the Village government.
