We believe Elgin is a great place to live and work where all residents should have the opportunity to contribute and thrive. To produce equitable outcomes, its social, education, and economic systems must be well-coordinated, responsive and inclusive. The result is a stronger community that represents the diverse voices and perspectives of its people.
Our Vision: Inclusive civic engagement and high functioning human services, education, and economic systems are supported so all Elgin residents can thrive.
