The Village's Sustainability and Community Enhancement Ad Hoc Committee (SEC) has worked with community stakeholders to draft a landscape plan for the Village’s primary corridors and its gateways, with an emphasis on Route 176. The plan will serve as a “playbook” to the Village in collaboration with its partners and private landowners in the selection, implementation, and maintenance of these areas.

You can view the draft plan here.

Before it makes its recommendation to the Village Board, the SEC would like your comments on the draft plan. Contact Glen Cole at (847) 283-6889 or via e-mail with your thoughts.
