General Info

Founded in 2017, FDG is a non-partisan, independent, collaborative group of volunteers who work to promote a vibrant downtown for all to enjoy.

FDG is governed by a Board of Directors elected annually by the membership. The Board is supported by committees composed of ongoing dedicated members. Our events and activities are conducted by at-large volunteers under the guidance of the Board and Committee leads.

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with events, our newsletter, volunteer management and more. Volunteers can select their level of involvement based on interest and their availability. Sign up at https://downtownglenview.org/

Dues is $25 for Board members and ongoing general members. At-large volunteers are not required to pay dues.

The Board meets quarterly. The Board, committees and membership meet as a group monthly. Monthly meetings are open to the public. Committees may also schedule additional meetings as needed for special projects.

Blocktoberfest, Holiday Greetings From Glenview Road, the Exotic Car Show, window decorating contests and more. FDG also promotes and supports downtown businesses with publicity for events, sales and important milestones.

Essentially, downtown is defined by Glenview Road from Olympia Plaza on the West to Waukegan Road on the East, and Waukegan Road, from Kraft-Heinz on the South to Lake Avenue on the North edge.

We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to public and civic purposes. Donations are greatly appreciated. FDG is incorporated as a 501(c)3 entity, making donations tax deductible.

No. We’ve made a conscious effort to remain non-partisan while working constructively with Village boards and commissions.
