Village of Flossmoor

Flossmoor, IL

Paul Braun


Pledge Summary

Designed as an escape from bustling city life, Flossmoor is a small town with tree-lined streets, sprawling green spaces and peaceful, tight-knit neighborhoods, just a stone's throw from the city of Chicago and all it offers. Flossmoor, a community of approximately 9,400 residents, is anchored by a quaint downtown with locally owned small businesses. The Flossmoor Green Commission provides information and events for households in Flossmoor to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Among other initiatives, the Green Commission oversees the Flossmoor Seed Library, which encourages residents to share seed from native plants, and is promoting the restoration of monarch butterfly habitat.
