This Wednesday, September 27, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the City of DeKalb will host
the first of several Community Meetings on the Annie Glidden North (AGN)
Revitalization Plan. The meeting, which will be held at Westminster Presbyterian
Church at 830 North Annie Glidden Road, is open to the public. Families with children
are welcome. A Spanish translator will be present.
On August 14, 2017, the City Council approved an agreement for a revitalization plan
for the AGN neighborhoods located in the northwest corner of DeKalb. The purpose of
the plan is to identify ways to make the AGN neighborhoods a more desirable, walkable,
safe, and economically vibrant place to live. Revitalization of the AGN neighborhoods is
critical to the wellbeing of the residents, as well as Northern Illinois University (NIU) and
the DeKalb community as a whole.
AGN Community Meetings will be facilitated by the City’s planning consultant, Camiros
Ltd. Attendees will learn the goals of the plan and have an opportunity to provide
feedback that will guide the development of the plan and help identify actionable items
to be addressed in the near term.
The meeting location is accessible to persons with disabilities. Persons planning to
attend who require special accommodations should notify Aaron Stevens by Tuesday,
September 26, 2017, at (815) 748-2096 or at email@example.com.
