In August and September of 2022 Opportunity DeKalb and DeKalb County Community Gardens hosted community conversations at four locations in the Annie Glidden North neighborhood. The conversations were open to residents of AGN to gather additional resident input to inform ongoing revitalization efforts. The conversations were facilitated by Northern Illinois University's Center for Governmental Studies. A report is available from the sessions as a resource to all who are interested.
