GoNorth connects five towns to support community
Members of five communities are coming together to promote sustainable, fulfilling, prosperous and healthy living for their residents, businesses and visitors. Emily, Fifty Lakes, Crooked Lake Twp./Outing, Little Pine Twp. and Fairfield Twp. are all a part of GoNorth, which will kick-off its many efforts with a concert and community event on Aug. 26 at Emily City Hall.
GoNorth has several projects in the works to help support the community. Jan Mosman, community member and Emily City Council member, helped form the group. She said that part of the mission is to protect what the communities have now- clean air, clean water, less traffic and quaint buildings.
“We don’t have majestic buildings, we have majestic trees,” Mosman said. “That’s what makes us attractive to a lot of people who would rather come here than downtown Chicago.”
