As a teenager, Mayor Richard C. Irvin worked as Sbarro Pizzeria at Fox Valley Mall and spent many hours on weekends there hanging out with friends. This is why his most recent announcement is a full circle moment for him. During the mayor’s media briefing on 2/4/2020, he announced his third State of the City Address would be held at Fox Valley Mall at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3. The theme is “3Rs: Renewal, Redevelopment and Revitalization.”
The 2020 State of the City Address will be given at the mall’s newly renovated Center Park, a 13,000 sq. ft., $7 million dollar project, which is just the first phase of internal and external redevelopment and revitalization plans at the mall. The event is hosted in collaboration with the Aurora Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Quad County African American Chamber of Commerce and the Aurora Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Free public tickets to the seating area will be available via the City’s website beginning Monday, February 10 at noon. The address will also be streamed online. “Remember the mall will be open, and we encourage everyone to come on out and watch from the surrounding areas as well,” said Mayor Irvin. “While you’re there, take time to visit the more than 100 retail stores and eateries before and after the event. “ The mayor noted he will be visiting Sbarro for a slice of pizza.
