Elgin: A City in the 21st Century

The city of Elgin is located in the U.S. state of Illinois. Geographically, it lies along the banks of the Fox River, encompassing two counties, namely: Kane and Cook. It can be located northwest of the city of Chicago. Based on the United States Census for Land Area estimates, the city has a total of 37.71 square miles of land. Only 0.54 square miles is water, while the rest is land. As of the year 2012, the population of the city is estimated to be 109, 927. The figures support the fact that Elgin is the 8th largest city in the state. It has five townships, including Dundee, Plato, Hanover Township, Rutland and Elgin.

In the state of Illinois, Elgin might be one of the fastest growing cities due to the accomplishments it garnered in terms of economy, education and the cityscape. As published by the Chicago Tribune in 2005, Elgin’s mayor, Ed Schock, predicted that the city will grow and become the state’s 2nd largest after 40 years. The city’s rapid growth is indeed a notable feature that should not be ignored. The construction of thousands of homes to the west of Randall Road is a sign that the city is becoming a major retail hub which will service the Fox Valley. The plan is part of the Far West Development Strategy of Elgin. Another area which has gotten the interest of many city developers is the city’s downtown. In 2003, the Gail Borden Public Library was transferred to a new building for better volume capacity. By 2007, three residential projects were already put in construction to accommodate the growing population. More projects are still being planned, such as the Centre of Elgin which aims to be a recreational center worth $41 million. Tourism also plays a major part in the growth of the city. Some of the notable attractions within Elgin’s borders are the Riverboat Casino, the state’s 5th most popular tourist attraction.

The city of Elgin is opening itself to diverse cultures and more grassroots organizations. In effect, the civic society gives pride to the city in terms of spreading the spirit of volunteerism among the citizens. With such an effective community volunteerism, an All-American City Award found its way to the city of Elgin in 2002. It was given by the National Civic League in recognition of the community groups, including Elgin Technology Center, Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin, South West Area Neighbors, Northeast Neighborhood Association and Gifford Park Association.
