Hanover Park Wins 2018 Governor's Hometown Award
Hanover Park, IL- Thanks to a collaborative grassroots process to bring positive change, our Greenbrook Tanglewood Neighborhood Revitalization project has won the 2018 Governor’s Hometown Award in the category of economic opportunities!
Embracing an integrated approach to community development, the Village of Hanover Park and DuPage Habitat for Humanity have been working in coalition with neighborhood residents and partners to address the many elements that contribute to a higher quality of life, including health care, safety and economic development, affordable housing and community pride & inclusion. School Districts, churches, banks, and community organizations have been working hand-in-hand with the Village and Habitat, holding neighborhood clean-up events, barbeques, job fairs, and service days.
Following submission of an application, the Village and DuPage Habitat for Humanity made a presentation to a panel of judges in Springfield. Projects from across the state were scored based on need, collaboration, use of resources, and impact. The award will be presented on November 15th in Springfield. We are Hometown Proud!
