For those of you who live or work in Downers Grove, the village is embarking on its Total Community Development Process. This is a long-range planning exercise that the village revisits every few years. TCD 3 has a website, where you can fill out a questionnaire and sign up for updates.
A community discussion is planned for 7 p.m. March 4 at Downers Grove South High School. Space is limited, so register by calling (630) 434-5527.
So what does community development have to do with gardening? Well, a lot! Do you want to ensure the village is committed to preserving green space? Do you want to suggest a natural alternative to stormwater managament issues? Do you want to see a town that's more friendly to bikers and walkers? This is your chance!
