Shared Experiences

Naperville is a big town with a small town feel and is a reason why people want to visit. 

  • Investing in a vibrant art scene will attract visitors who will then stay and explore all that Naperville has to offer. This will support our local businesses and bring people together.

  • Cultural events are a way to attract visitors to Naperville and bring the community together. Naperville’s SECA funding supports high-profile events that attract already visitors, but its funding also supports lesser-known artists and performers (e.g. Men’s Glee Club, Neighbors United). 

  • Funding new events like Juneteenth and Naper Pride will build will build an even more inclusive Naperville

  • Adding more public art to the already extensive offering across town is a way to boost the recovery for artists and performers. The Naperville Public Art Task Force is a way to manage the process in a transparent way.

  • Racial justice and climate breakdown are two topics important to Allison's teenaged daughters. She will listen to young and marginalized voices to problem-solve these issues. She will encourage participation in the Leadership Academy, on the Sustainability Task Force (NEST), and on boards and commissions.
