Property owners are responsible for routine maintenance of the public parkways (generally the area between the curb and the sidewalk) adjacent to their properties. This includes mowing, trimming weeds, etc. In addition, tree limbs and bushes on or adjacent to parkway areas should be kept trimmed so that they do not block visibility or encroach upon sidewalks.
It is illegal to attach to parkway trees:
- Bird houses
- Hanging baskets
- Or any other device
- Outdoor lighting
- Address signs
Also, the Village requires that a permit be obtained in order to plant material other than grass and Village-approved tree species within parkway areas. For more information call 847-716-3289, or by emailing Andrew Lueck.
