Algonquin Celebrates the Completion of the Old Town Algonquin Revitalization Project

On Tuesday, November 19, Village officials, along with local business owners and the community-at-large, joined together to celebrate the completion of the Old Town Algonquin Revitalization Project in Historic Downtown Algonquin. More than 50 attendees gathered under the holiday lights for the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Village President John Schmitt and Public Works Director Robert Mitchard provided remarks highlighting the history of this project and the many improvements that have transformed Old Town. “The revitalization plan established a concept to support the existing and new developments in Old Town, while preserving and improving the features of the area,” President Schmitt said.

This multi-year project has added new streetscape features and traffic calming enhancements to create a beautiful and safe environment for the community. While this project is substantially complete, utility work remains in progress.

At the completion of the event, businesses and restaurants in Old Town held extended hours and offered special discounts to patrons.
