[September 16, 2020]    As part of the plan to reopen our great state, Governor Pritzker has announced that Phase 3 of their process will begin on Friday, May 29th.

During this phase, restaurants and bars will be allowed to provide food and beverage with outside dining. The City is very excited to see that our businesses have been given this opportunity and would like to support them as much as we can. With that being said, the City will
close a portion of our downtown square this Friday and Saturday night to give our community the chance to reconnect in a safe and respectful manner. Our ultimate goal is to give everyone the opportunity to support our businesses in an open space and at a safe distance.

We will be closing Cooke St. between Lafayette and Washington from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday May 29th and from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday May

Pizza Man, The Lucky Lager, and The Old Brickyard will be open and ready to serve as their current company policy allows. Alcoholic beverages must be both purchased within and kept within the Cooke St. barricades. As I hope you can attend in a safe manner, I also understand if you wish to remain at home at this time.

We ask that everyone continue to follow the common guidelines recommended by the CDC. Please keep a safe and responsible distance from those that are not members of the same household. If you are feeling ill or are at a higher risk than others, we kindly ask that you
remain at home.

I have good faith that our residents will be respectful to each other as we hold this event. I also believe that, as always, our community will show their support to our businesses.

If you have any questions, please, do not hesitate to call me at any
time for any reason.

Regards and best wishes,

Matt Bobell
