GREEN BUSINESS & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FORUM

Thank you to everyone who attended the Green Business and Economic Development Forum, November 15th at Waubonsee Community College Campus in Downtown Aurora!

We had a packed house to learn about Regional Active Mobility Program (RAMP) and discuss the importance of sustainable business and attracting green industries to the Fox Valley. We also received updates on the Future Energy Jobs Act and the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP)'s planning in the Fox River Corridor.

Thank you to our speakers Gary Cuneen, Stephane Phifer, John Harris, Representative Steve Andersson and Brian Daly and thank you to everyone who attended and participated!
