Dear Members and Friends,

Citizens for Glen Ellyn Preservation volunteers are looking forward to the coming year in Glen Ellyn. With the work on the downtown plan finally completed, we now anticipate the creation of an historic district that would support property owners who restore vintage commercial buildings while protecting the character of the town center. With the success of our May seminar Preservation: It’s good to be green, we want to continue to educate about the connection between preservation, sensible growth and conservation. And with the recent recommendation by the village Historic Preservation Commission that important civic sites like Glenbard West and Lake Ellyn Park be designated as landmarks, we will celebrate what makes Glen Ellyn unique.

CGEP volunteers have attended countless village board and commission meetings, park district meetings and school board meetings whenever decisions are being made that will influence the distinctive character of our town. We have spoken out in support of sensible zoning that respects our historic streetscapes, variances that help save historic structures from demolition and an important ordinance to protect valuable trees. We understand that residents of our village rely on us to monitor these issues and we will continue to do so. However, we need your help.

CGEP derives its entire operating budget from membership fees and from private donors like you. It is through the generosity of individual residents and local business owners that we have funded such work as our historic homes tour, election research, seminars and public outreach. There is much to be done if we are to preserve for our future generations the essence of what makes our village unique from every other small town.

We hope that you will help us in our work to protect the character of our village by making a contribution today.
