Paving the Way to a Brighter Future in 2019

In case you haven’t stopped by recently, 2018 has been the year of construction in historic downtown Long Grove.  Yes, everyone who lives, works or has visited during this time has been somewhat inconvenienced by road closures, traffic jams and those annoying red cones. Oh, then there was that huge truck that destroyed the town’s iconic gateway!  The good news is, although it’s been painful at times and the renovation process is taking longer than expected, there is light at the end of the tunnel.  The village is literally and figuratively, paving the way to a brighter future.

In 2019, Historic Long Grove will rise and shine once again.  Through the demolition and rubble, the foreclosures and vacancies, a giant is slowly reawakening.  The rebirth of this destination town is within sight.  New infrastructure is attracting an exciting new crop of businesses while reinforcing the long lineage of mainstays for the next generation of visitors.  These changes are vital as Long Grove looks to prosper in the new era.

Besides relaunching with upgraded roads, sidewalks, and lighting, 2019 will also bring the resurrection of the Long Grove Bridge, which just before the accident was designated with the National Register of Historic Places honor.  One could say that history is reinventing itself as this little hamlet shakes off the dust and embarks on a new path.

Downtown Long Grove is rewriting the next chapter of its century-old story, and we’re excited for the dawn of tomorrow…
