There was a Daily Herald article about the Downtown Neighborhood Association’s design committee's walks:
For the past three Tuesdays, members have toured certain portions of downtown Elgin, looking for needed improvements and noting what works for the neighborhood.
One thing they might consider is replacing some sections of the downtown's concrete sidewalk with brick paving. They could also tear out the asphalt in some road sections to reveal what surely must be an existing brick road underneath. Click here to see a picture of what brick pavement and roads would look like. I think it may nicely complement some of the historic buildings downtown, not to mention the historic streetlights that the city has put in or is putting in(read more about this in the DNA blog).
