DuPage mass vaccination clinic
The mass vaccination clinic at DuPage County Fairgrounds reopened today. The DuPage County Health Department (DCHD) will use the clinic to give COVID-19 booster vaccinations. They are recommended for people aged 65 and over, residents in long-term care facilities, and people aged between 50 and 64 with pre-existing conditions. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 49 with previous health conditions or those aged 18 and over who are at increased risk due to their work or in an institutional setting are also entitled to the additional vaccination. The clinic will also offer first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The recordings are only available by appointment and the recipients must register in advance.
DuPage County Redistribution Plan
The DuPage County Board is seeking public feedback on its proposed redistribution map. The plan unveiled on Tuesday keeps the number of districts at six and retains three seats per district. The proposal would simply move some of the district lines to accommodate population changes. The county is required to redraw its map every 10 years following the release of the latest US census data. Local residents are encouraged to visit the county’s website to get involved. The deadline for accepting a new card is November 17th.
Mural New Century Walk
There’s a new piece of art on the Naperville Century Walk. The latest installation celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Naperville Country Club while honoring fifteen Naperville athletes who have excelled in their field. The athletes, including Olympic swimming champion Kevin Cordes, Olympic figure skating champion Evan Lysacek and Special Olympics swimming gold medalist Grace Seiboldt, will play a round of golf with members of the country club. Also pictured are those who designed the Naperville Country Club golf course. The mural is on Jackson Street in downtown Naperville, just outside Sullivan’s Steakhouse, and was funded by private donations.
New Naperville sign
There is a new sign illuminating the Mill Street underpass south of Naperville North High School. The Department of Public Works has been working with it all summer, clearing and landscaping the site, painting, and finally putting up the sign. It was paid for with under-spending with additional department funds and made from scrap aluminum left over from other jobs. The idea arose from a discussion in Naperville City Council about beautifying some of the aging neighborhoods. It now welcomes those coming to downtown Naperville from the north.
