Future Focus Internal Operations

The pandemic took a toll on a lot of businesses, and the Elmhurst Park District was no different. Due to a $6 million loss of revenue in 2020 and a lack of work for various departments due to mandated shutdowns, a number of positions had to be eliminated. But as the country has now come out of the pandemic and residents locally flock to programs and events, the District has budgeted to add several new positions that will help grow programs and allow staff to better manage parks and facilities. 

Ask questions and learn about District projects, accomplishments and future plans at the upcoming Virtual State of the Park District Address at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16.

Expressing a continued commitment toward strategically advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) across the organization, the Elmhurst Park District Park Board approved at their January 10 meeting the hiring of Edquity-Minded Consulting, LLC to conduct a DEI organizational assessment.
