Watch Hold Village Hall Forum

The Downers Grove Watch held a forum to discuss the Village Hall project put forth by the village council to include four possible proposals and bids to build a new combination Village Hall and Police Station.

Included in the project is the sale of a portion of the land which presently houses our municipal buildings.

The forum was held to better understand the implications of the project as it relates to cost and taxpayer responsibility.

The exchange of ideas and concerns were very productive and gave residents an opportunity to ask pointed question of our panel.

We would like to thank the panelists for their time and professionalism in this endeavor.


David Fieldman – Village Manager

David Olsen – 81st District State Representative
