The Village of Romeoville is offering a unique opportunity for residents to honor a current or former community member through the Commemoration Program. The program is utilized as a way to recognize individuals that have made a significant contribution or impact on the community.
The nominator should complete the appropriate form, providing detailed information about the major accomplishments in which you believe qualifies your honoree for this commemoration. Nominators should list accomplishments and services provided to the community outside the honoree’s job or scope of work. Please check area of contribution and complete the nomination statements. If the honoree’s achievement is through a specific organization, please elaborate on the scope of service and any offices held, including dates with the organization. Information on personal, educational and business background is helpful. The nominator must complete and submit the form.
The Committee will then make a recommendation to the Village Board. If approved, a proclamation will be passed and presented to the family of the individual. Each application must meet the criteria as set forth, although meeting all criteria does not ensure naming rights. The Committee has the right to deny any application for any reason at any time or waive requirements as set forth. Applications with names or nick names that endorse or advocate religion or specific religious beliefs, have obscene connotations, or demean or attempt to intimidate any group based on the group’s race, ethnicity, age, gender, disability, or sexual orientation will be denied.
To qualify, the honoree must be deceased and had been a Romeoville resident for over 30 years, or volunteered in Romeoville for more than 20 years, as well as had made a significant contribution or impact on the community. In addition, three letters of recommendation must be included on why the individual is deserving. The letters must be from someone that was directly impacted by the service provided by the individual. The Village has the right to conduct a background check to confirm the information provided.
The completed form will be reviewed to determine if all criteria has been met. If all criteria has been met, the nominee’s application will be forwarded to the Commemorative Program Committee which consists of an elected official, the Village Manager, a Village of Romeoville employee, a Non-profit representative and a Romeoville resident.
