The rain couldn’t keep us away from a great Farmers Market! Thanks to our new friends in Kankakee for visiting with us and discussing the Schuyler Avenue streetscape. Some of the themes we heard include: make better connections between north and south Schuyler Ave; continue the festoon lighting (and add more of it!); support outdoor cafes; improve places to sit, gather, bike, and stroll; and don’t forget trees and flowers!

Step 4: Spread the good word. Tell your friends, neighbors and community partners about this plan — encourage them to get involved, register, and share ideas.
