Thanks to a 2016 grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation, Hinckley community leaders and citizens were able to meet with NIU’s Center for Governmental Studies and discuss what might help the community from an economic standpoint. The result of these meetings was establishing Harvesting Our Future, a group who strives to achieve their vision for Hinckley’s future:
Hinckley strives to be recognized for its quality of life, with high-performing schools, friendly neighborhoods, a historic downtown, and unique businesses that make it a welcoming place to live, work, and visit in a scenic rural environment.
One of the results of this vision is establishing a place on the internet for people to learn more about our community whether resident or visitor. To read more about how this came to be and what Harvesting Our Future has accomplished thus far click below.
