More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family, and many say they will try to save money.
As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in Elmhurst to make it an even better place to live?
That's not to say Elmhurst isn't a great town. People who grew up here tend to come back and raise their kids. We have the Prairie Path running right through town, lots of great bars and restaurants, a first-class hospital, college and museums, and a St. Patrick's Day Parade that draws tens of thousands of people. But there's always room for improvement.
In addition to the common call for lower taxes, we've heard suggestions for more shelters in parks and a police officer in every school. Would you like to see more parking in town? How about bringing back Elmfest? And what should be done with Hahn Street?
