On Wednesday, April 29th, the America's Best Communities website announced the 50 quarter-finalists for their nationwide community and economic development competition.

Out of 400 participant communities, 50 were selected as quarterfinalists, with only three selected in the State of Illinois. And yes, the Monmouth region (Monmouth, Lenox Township and Roseville) was one of those three!

This is a great program that allows us to grow from our downtown strategic plan to a larger-scale community and economic development revitalization plan, with the resources to truly engage our community in a shared vision forward. We’ll keep you posted as we move forward on this exciting venture.
