  • Broadening the appeal of Shabbona Lake State Park
  • Enhancing attractions outside the Park
  • Attracting visitor and resident spending
  • Making improvements to the Village Downtown
  • Stimulating business formation
  • Increasing overnight accomodations
  • Creating a regional identity to attract visitors
