In 2014, the Village of La Grange will celebrate its 135th anniversary of incorporation. To maintain and enhance the quality of life currently enjoyed by residents, the Village is creating a fixed-term advisory panel of people (working title - La Grange 2020) who will think about and advise the Village on major topics such as parking, beautification, economic development, infrastructure, and public safety resources.
In addition to current commission chairs, business people and community leaders, the Village is looking for approximately 20 residents to help with this initiative.
Panel participants are expected to attend monthly meetings requiring no more than three hours per meeting beginning in September 2013. The engagement is expected to conclude in May 2014, with a report to the Village Board.
Interested residents should submit a one-page professional biography addressed to Village President Tom Livingston via email in care of firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday, July 31.
