Read the Summary Report from the November 10, 2019 Skokie Community Forum II.

On November 10, 2019 nearly 90 Skokie residents participated in the Village of Skokie’s second Community Forum that was held at Skokie Police Headquarters.  The first Skokie Community Forum was held on November 2, 2014 at Oakton Community College.

At the November 2019 Skokie Community Forum, participants participated in small-group discussions responding to three questions:

  • “Why did you choose to live in Skokie and why do you stay?”
  • “What do we need to do individually and collectively to maintain and strengthen the things that we value about living in Skokie?
  • For the third question participants selected a topic from question 2 and answered, “What do you need to do and what does the Village need to do in order for the idea you have chosen to become a reality?”

Great effort was made to catalog all of the thoughts, suggestions and opinions expressed during the event into a summary report. With the summary report now compiled, Village officials and staff will carefully and thoughtfully review all of the ideas and suggestions expressed throughout the evening. From there, priorities will develop. While not all ideas will become action items, they all will be considered, with some serving to shape new programs and modifications to existing Village programs and services. Periodic progress updates will be issued and also posted on the Village website.

At the Skokie Community Forum, many residents expressed the desire for a greater level of community involvement, both for themselves and their neighbors. Many inquired about the process to serve on a Village advisory board or commission. Please see more information about the boards and commissions, as well as a link to the application form that, once complete, should be submitted to the Office of Mayor George Van Dusen, Skokie Village Hall, 5127 Oakton Street, Skokie, Illinois 60077.
