|| In an effort to further our commitment to the natural environment, the Forest Preserve District is always looking for ways to reduce our footprint and to operate more efficiently. Saving taxpayer dollars also remains a top priority in the process.
One initiative underway is to gradually transition our quarterly newsletter, The Citizen, to a digital format. This will be completed in the coming months and has already begun with a new and improved digital version of The Citizen. View the 2016 summer issue online.
This version is more interactive than past digital versions, which have been uploaded to our website as simple PDF files. The new digital format is in a flipbook design, allowing readers to flip back and forth between pages. It also provides a number of other features, including the ability to view all pages at once, search keywords, and zoom in and out on text, photos, and graphics. The newsletter can also be downloaded and/or printed from this format. Additional improvements will continue to be made as part of the transition process.
It is our goal by 2017 to provide the newsletter to its readers in an entirely digital format, which means that your participation is needed. We ask that all current subscribers consider making the transition now to the digital version of the newsletter.
Transfer your subscription to digital by filling out our online form or calling 815.727.8700. As always, your information is private and will not be used for any other purpose.
An email will be sent to all digital subscribers when each new issue of The Citizen is posted online. Digital subscribers will no longer receive a printed newsletter in the mail. If you require the newsletter in an alternate format, please contact us online or call 815.727.8700.
As part of this initiative, beginning immediately, all new subscribers to The Citizen will only be allowed to sign up for the digital version. Additionally, starting in 2016, The Citizen will be reduced from four to three issues per year. This will save thousands of dollars in printing and postage.
It is our hope that all subscribers to The Citizen will consider making the transition to digital.
If you have any questions, contact us online, email TheCitizen@fpdwc.org, or call 815.727.8700.
