The Village has been studying options to reduce flooding on the Village's North Side (Thatcher to Harlem and Division to North). The Village has retained the services of an engineering consultant who has recommended a project which would create a new, separate storm water utility to significantly reduce flooding in this area. The proposed project is broken down into two phases. The first phase would cost approximately $13 million and the second phase (if needed) would cost approximately $5 million.

Before moving forward, the Village held two public meetings to present he proposed plan. The first meeting was held in April 2013 at Dominican University. A second meeting was held to allow those residents who missed the first meeting an opportunity to understand the project and financing, provide feedback and ask any questions. The information provided at the second meeting will be similar in nature to the first meeting. For details of the plan please click here.
