At this year’s annual State of the Village Address, President Sandy Frum will highlight Northbrook’s strong local economy and finances which provide a solid foundation for businesses. President Frum will recap notable milestones from 2018, and highlight potential opportunities and challenges the Village anticipates in 2019 and beyond. The lively interactive presentation will also include a discussion of redevelopment projects, what the upcoming local elections and recent state elections mean for Northbrook, the Village’s legislative priorities, and anticipated capital improvement projects including upgrading facilities for Police, Fire, and Public Works.
