ALGONQUIN, IL – 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.

β€œThe 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.

  1. Celebrating the 10,000th time a group of idiots, under the guise of revitalization, spend a million to get penny’s back in return.


  2. How about flattening Algonquin with a small tactical nuke, and starting over?

  3. I might accept your proposal Trexler, but only if all the County haters were concentrated there and all the normal people safely evacuated.

  4. I wonder if they put in safe spaces next to the free electric car chargers.

  5. A foundational ICLEI city. Tells me it is town chock full of morons.

  6. Wait–Old Town Inn Pizza is back in downtown Algonquin?

    Great. Is there any parking?

    Now days everyone goes around the “old town” part of Algonquin anyway so what was the point of all of this besides a decade plus of aggravation, and lost business and closed local businesses awaiting the final product?

    Maybe it will catch on in another decade, but so many have avoided that area, it will be hard to now bring them back to it.
