Talking Topics

Below is a teaser of just some of the plan themes and topics we will be exploring...

  • In what ways can Wilmette’s future be healthier and safer?
  • What are the most impactful elements of the arts and culture scene?
  • How would you describe community character in Wilmette?
  • Where is ‘sense of place’ strongest in Wilmette? Where might it be improved?
  • What’s missing, or not available to the entire community?
  • ​How can community wellness and mental health be improved?

“I love ALL of the brick roads. They naturally curb traffic speed. They are one of the few things that are helping to retain architectural character in Wilmette.”
