Active Transportation Plan
The Village, the Sustainability Task Force, School District 35 and the Glencoe Park District are working in partnership with the Active Transportation Alliance, to develop the Village’s first community-wide Active Transportation Plan (ATP).
Community Improvement Program
The 10-Year Community Improvement Program (CIP) is a working document that allows the Village to map out priorities for investing in the Village's infrastructure (including water and sewer lines, roads, curbs and gutters) as well as capital equipment (such as ambulances and Public Works vehicles). Each year, actual expenditures proposed in the CIP are brought forth to the Village Board as part of the budget discussion.
In June 2015, the State mandated that all communities with populations of less than 25,000 consolidate their emergency dispatching centers. In compliance with this mandate, the Village consolidated dispatch services with the Village of Glenview on June 6, 2017.
Glencoe loves its downtown and the Village embarked on the Downtown Tune-Up to look for ways of enhancing, promoting and extending its best features. The result is the Downtown Plan.
Garbage Collection Analysis
Tudor Court was identified in the Downtown Plan as presenting an opportunity for place-making through special streetscape treatments. To this end, the Village has enlisted the assistance of Teska Associates, an urban planning and design firm based in Evanston, IL, to facilitate community engagement around the Tudor Court enhancements.
Water System Master Plan
The Water System Master Plan is comprised of two major initiatives: (1) the Water Distribution System Plan and (2) the Water Supply Planning Report. The Water Distribution System Plan is helping the Village to prioritize infrastructure projects (water mains, the water tower, fire hydrants), while the Water Supply Planning Report addresses options for the Water Treatment Plant moving forward, including the possibility of moving and rebuilding, renovating or closing the plant completely in favor of consolidating with another plant.
Welcoming & Inclusive Community Pledge
Recognizing that Glencoe is home to approximately 9,000 residents of diverse backgrounds, histories and identities, Village President Larry Levin and the Village Board of Trustees adopted a resolution endorsing the Welcoming and Inclusive Community Pledge in March 2017.
2019 Construction Projects
Glencoe is quickly approaching our sesquicentennial (150th birthday). While little of our public infrastructure remains from 1869, much of it is approaching multiple decades in age. Learn what projects are slated for the upcoming year.
