Back when I first started I used to solely work in good ole Lake Forest, IL. I was probably 18 years old and I used to drive from Grayslake to Lake Forest and think that it was a far drive.
There was enough work there to never leave the town. Me and my dad would work some seriously long hours. Such good memories. He did a good job of keeping me humble.
The picture shown is of Market Square (known as America’s first shopping center). Notice the streets paved in interlocking brick pavers. Beside that, the beach, the parks, the library and acres of native open lands are just a few of the special places where residents come together to rub elbows and enjoy the outdoors.
I can only appreciate the effort that the city of Lake Forest takes to protect their trees and their wild life. Whenever we get permits for projects that have stringent codes to follow for protection.
Successful business people, entrepreneurs, actors, writers, architects, educators and shopkeepers have made Lake Forest their home town. A vibrant community of thoughtful planners, Lake Forest is about living, learning, thinking and giving. You can read more about it here.
