Valentine's Day Throwback: St. Charles' Most Famous Historic Couple

Continuing St. Charles’ 185th Anniversary celebration, let’s look back at one of the city’s most famous couples in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Lester and Dellora Norris. The two had a love for each other and for St. Charles, which was evident through their many philanthropic deeds. Their legacy and family fortune led to contributing land or funds for the several local landmarks including Municipal Building, the Arcada, Delnor Hospital, schools, and more. Their charity foundation, carried on by their children, has helped leave their legacy alive to this day.

Update - 01/23/19

At this time, the City has retained WBK Engineering of St. Charles to complete final engineering design, which will incorporate replacement of the water main and the sanitary sewer, as well as storm sewer improvements and roadway reconstruction. 

In 2016, the City requested information from property owners through a questionnaire.  We will be taking the questionnaire responses into consideration to the best of our ability as we move forward.  Specifically, tree removal will be avoided where possible and sidewalk improvements will not be included.
