Event description

Description

Have you ever admired the “new” bungalow just north of Prairie on Main Street in Downers Grove? Are you curious as to who built it and why? Do you wonder why it fits in so well with its neighboring homes? Join us on March 7 to hear homeowner and architect, Don Rickard, present his home’s story and talk about why this bungalow is not at all like the one your grandfather lived in!

Don Rickard is licensed to practice architecture in six states and has more than 30 years of design and construction experience across the country and abroad. He has been involved in over 750 projects spanning many building types including industrial, office, retail, and residential buildings.

Don has served on the Downers Grove Plan Commission since 2013 and has been Chairman since 2015. He previously served on the Romeoville Planning and Zoning Commission for 23 years and was Chairman for 15 years. As part of his role on these commissions Don has helped create and update numerous urban planning tools; including Comprehensive Plans, Development Regulations, Zoning Codes, and Design Standards.

In his free time Don enjoys bike riding, traveling, touring historic buildings, and adding to his extensive collection of architecture books.
