We enjoyed a good response to our short community survey powered by Survey Monkey. A heartfelt thanks to those who responded. So here are the results:
Most of the responses came from Glen Ellyn residents. Results show the strongest interests were in energy savings/conservation, alternative energy, and parks/open space. Everyone thought that Glen Ellyn would “definitely” or “probably” benefit from an environmental advocacy group, and that it should focus on a variety of activities, but most strongly, it should promote opportunities for a “greener” Glen Ellyn by involving both citizens and local businesses
What should this group be named? The most popular response is the name Glen Ellyn Sustainability Group.Next steps should be to adopt the new name and start doing some work. First on the agenda is an Earth Day Festival at the Lake Ellyn boathouse on Tuesday, April 22nd. The Glen Ellyn Park District has graciously offered us the room. We will gather a small committee to help organize the festival.
