West Dundee Ambassadors Program

The Village of West Dundee has recently begun to formalize a program to recruit and utilize volunteers within our community. The West Dundee Ambassador Program was formed with the purpose of creating a centralized list of individuals who are interested in giving of their time and talents in order to match these folks up with opportunities as they arise.

We welcome you to register for the Ambassador Program by completing the Volunteer Application and returning it to the Village Hall via mail, fax, email or in person.

Ambassador Program participants will be added to the Village Newslist email subscription. As programs and volunteer events develop, an email will be sent to notify ambassadors and community members.

Should opportunities arise for individual, small group or ad-hoc committees related to specific areas of interest or expertise, those interested or qualified individuals on within the ambassador program will be invited to participate.

As part of the Business Attraction, Retention and Support/10-For-10 facet of the Ambassador Program, a current promotion is underway with Family Pride Cleaners, located at 537 S. 8th Street. From March 13-31, spend $10 or more at Family Pride and be entered into a drawing for a $25 Emmett's Gift Card! The catch - you must be registered for the West Dundee Ambassador's program to be eligible to win. Family Pride has also extended an offer to Ambassadors to have 6 shirts cleaned for the price of 5 (excluding special fabric and silk).

General Maintenance Code Enforcement

Based on direction from the Village Board and a focus on general aesthetics of the neighborhoods of West Dundee, the Village will be placing increased attention a number of common property maintenance code violations.

The areas of code enforcement that will be focused on include:

• Vehicles parked in driveways should not block the sidewalk, particularly during daylight hours, in order to promote a pedestrian-friendly environment throughout the Village.

• Refuse containers should not be placed curbside any earlier than the evening prior to collection. Typically, this is Thursday evening. During the week of the 6 major holidays (New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day), collection is moved to Saturday, in which case refuse containers should not be placed earlier than Friday evening.

• Garbage cans should not be stored along the front (street side) of your home, but rather along the side or in the rear yard.

• Grass and weeds within your individual lot should be properly maintained, and do not become overgrown or unsightly. These would include any planting beds, landscape areas or lawns.

• Outdoor fire pits must located in the rear yard and at least 20’ away from any structure or combustible material. No garbage or yard waste is permitted to be burned.

• RVs, boats and trailers may not be stored in any driveway for longer than 48 hours.

Fox Valley Regional Housing Study

In 2013, the Villages of West Dundee, East Dundee, Carpentersville and Elgin received grant funding to provide for a regional study regarding housing stock and projected future housing needs.

Through the study, present and future housing needs were analyzed utilizing multiple data sources and existing housing conditions in such areas as housing affordability, housing and transportation costs, and housing condition. Additionally, the capacity for new housing was reviewed by creating profiles of the workforce in the sub region and identification of industry sectors and commuting patterns, and; utilizing population, demographic and employment forecasts and determining potential new populations for each municipality and for the study area as a whole.
