Brown Bag Lunch: A Look at the Plan of Elgin of 1917

August 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

$3.00

In 1917, the city of Elgin unveiled its “Plan of Elgin.” Produced by architect and city planner Edward H. Bennett, who had worked on Chicago’s “Burnham Plan,” this blueprint for the future called for major changes to Elgin’s traffic flow, zoning, beautification efforts, riverfront development and more.

How did the goals laid out in this plan fare over the past century? Jerry Turnquist takes a look at what’s been accomplished and what might still be achieved in the future.
