Village of Skokie Mayor George Van Dusen was announced as the recipient of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) Visionary Leader Award. Part of the CMAP Regional Excellence Awards, the Visionary Leader Award recognizes “a person or organization whose leadership has made northeastern Illinois more inclusive, resilient, and economically competitive”.

In the announcement, CMAP cited Van Dusen’s work to improve access to transit by bringing a CTA station to Downtown Skokie, diversify Skokie’s economy through development of the Illinois Science and Technology Park, and institute sustainable policies like the recently passed Environmental Sustainability Plan. 

The award will be presented to Van Dusen at the Skokie State of the Village Luncheon hosted by the Skokie Chamber of Commerce at Urnina Banquets on April 21, 2023 at 11:30 a.m.
