Student Focus Group, Success!

8th Graders at Lincoln Middle School review and prioritize the ideas they think are most important. This was just one of four focus groups conducted as part of Park Ridge’s Comprehensive Planning effort.

Special thanks to the 100+ students at Lincoln and Emerson Middle School who shared their ideas on how to improve the future of Park Ridge! The Park Ridge Wonderful outreach team conducted a series of focus groups on October 3rd and 4th to speak with students about the Comprehensive Plan and gather their input. We came away with a solid list of resounding themes, which we will share at the community workshop on October 15th.
