It’s likely not a coincidence that a person with French ancestry, like Greg Guimond, would wind up settling in the town of Bourbonnais. And so perhaps it was also preordained that Greg’s travels would lead him to a long and prosperous career at Martin Implement Sales.

After cutting his teeth in the business with local Massey Ferguson and Ford dealers, Greg came north to Orland Park in 1984 to be part of the Martin Implement team. Within six years, he was running the show as Parts Manager for the dealership. Continue reading

Many of America’s highways, bridges, tunnels, utilities and rail lines, built more than half a century ago, are in need of very necessary repairs. While our president wants to update our crumbling infrastructure, the details are being nailed down on how the building spree will be financed. Some of the best examples of projects that hit the mark for innovation, and go beyond practicality, are flexible amenities that reinvigorate and connect communities. Built on what was the Bloomingdale rail line, the Chicago’s 606 and its structure, public art, creative landscapes, and other amenities tie together neighborhoods including Logan Square, Palmer Square, Humboldt Park, Bucktown, and Wicker Park. The 606 is one of the innovative civic space projects reinvigorating cities highlighted here.
