City Celebrates Naperville Jaycees Park Groundbreaking

Ceremony Took Place on Tuesday, September 18 at 5 p.m.

The City of Naperville and the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce jointly hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the Naperville Jaycees Park. The groundbreaking took place at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 18, at the site of the future smart park, located on the on the north lawn of the Naperville Municipal Center,

The smart park concept was initially introduced in 2017 as an opportunity for individuals looking for flexible work space to be able to come together in an area located near Naperville’s downtown. Thanks to donations from the community, enough funds have been pledged to construct this unique amenity. The Naperville Jaycees are the lead donor and namesake of the park.

 

“Just like the Riverwalk, the Naperville Jaycees Park is another great example of how our community comes together and takes an idea from concept to completion,” said City of Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico. “I’m very excited to see the Naperville Jaycees Park outdoor WiFi workspace become an added amenity for our community.”

 

Once constructed, the park will include accessible and stepped entrances, several different types of seating, tables, charging stations, USB ports and outlets. WiFi will be provided throughout the park, and canopies and trellises will be installed to provide sun protection. Eco-friendly amenities include permeable pavers and rain gardens. Energy for Naperville Jaycees Park will come from solar panels installed on the roof of the Municipal Center. The park will be free and open to the public.

 

Construction of the Naperville Jaycees Park is expected to begin Monday, September 24, weather depending. The park is anticipated to be complete by spring of 2019.

Naperville Police Urge Community to Make Our City “A Safer Naper” for Kids Returning to School

NAPERVILLE, IL – As Naperville school children begin the 2018-2019 school year, the Naperville Police Department asks that families and motorists make back-to-school safety a priority to ensure a safe and successful start to the new school year.

 

Safety Tips for Families:

Before the first day of school, parents should talk to their students about safety and make sure to follow these tips: 

  • Students should know their home address and phone number as well as a parent’s cell phone number. Help your child practice it so they have it memorized before school begins.
  • There is safety in numbers. Be sure children use the buddy system and always walk to and from school with a friend or stay with a group at the bus stop.
  • When walking or biking to school, students should stay within the crosswalks and obey all traffic signals and signs. They should follow designated Safe Walk Routes (www.naperville.il.us/walkroutes) and obey all crossing guards. If children ride their bikes to school, make sure they wear a helmet and reflective clothing and stay on the sidewalk when one is available.
  • Before the first day of school, walk to and from school with your child. If your student will be riding the bus, visit the bus stop with your children and be sure they know their bus numbers.
  • Teach children the safety rule, “Say NO, GO and TELL.” If anyone approaches your child, offers them a ride, asks for directions, or makes them feel uncomfortable, instruct them to say “NO,” get away from the situation (GO), and TELL a trusted adult. Be sure to discuss with your child who trusted adults may be: teachers, parents, a friend’s parents, neighbors, police officers, firefighters, relatives, etc.
  • Make sure children understand never to leave school with anyone they haven’t been instructed to leave with by you. If someone comes up to them and tells them that there is an emergency and they want your child to go with them, be sure they know to check first with you or another trusted adult (school personnel) before doing so.
  • If your students will be taking care of themselves after school, please provide them with the “On Your Own” safety materials found atwww.naperville.il.us/npdschoolprograms.

 

Safety Tips for Motorists:

Children will once again be walking to school through neighborhoods, waiting at bus stops and being dropped off at schools by parents and buses. The beginning of the school year is an especially important time to check your driving behavior and ensure you are practicing the safest driving habits. Motorists can assist with keeping children safe when headed back-to-school by following these tips:

  • Plan ahead and leave home earlier than normal to allow enough time to reach your destination without rushing.
  • Always come to a complete stop at stop signs, and be sure to check carefully for children on sidewalks and in crosswalks before proceeding. Drivers should always be prepared to yield the right-of-way and should not drive unnecessarily close to pedestrians. Be sure to obey crossing guards and student safety patrols.
  • Slow Down! Remember, school speed zones are reduced for a reason. When entering a school zone, slow down to 20 mph and be extra alert for children on foot and on bicycles.
  • Being cautious when approaching school buses. It is illegal to proceed around a school bus with the stop sign arm engaged. Please be patient as children enter and exit school buses.
  • Eliminate distractions. Leave time in the morning to eat and groom before entering your vehicle and stay off the phone while driving. As a reminder, Illinois bans the use of all hand-held devices while driving in Illinois as well as texting while driving.
  • Follow each school’s traffic and parking plans and signage. If you have questions or want more information on your school’s traffic and parking plans, please contact your school.
  • Lock your car doors and remove valuables before exiting your vehicle at schools and daycares. Even if you’ll only be gone for a brief time, leaving valuables in plain sight or leaving your doors unlocked is an invitation for thieves.
  • Talk to your teen. According to AAA, nearly one in four fatal crashes involving teen drivers occurs during the after school hours of 3 to 7 p.m. Remind them to slow down, reduce distractions and be aware of their surroundings.
