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.

Downtown Redevelopment Master Plan

The Village has engaged a consultant team, headed by Hitchcock Design Group, to initiate a comprehensive downtown evaluation in order to create a viable framework for public and private investment over the next 1, 3 and 5 years.

Hitchcock Design has completed an Opportunity Analysis Report, which provides an overview of the resources, market conditions and stakeholder interests of West Dundee's downtown and summarizes promising downtown opportunities that will be explored in greater detail in the next phase of the project.

Residents, business owners and other interested parties are able to interact with the consulting team through the project website at and in person at an upcoming open house on Weds, September 17 (tentative time and location: 6:00-8:30pm at Emmett's Brewing Co, 128 W Main St) to remain involved and in touch with the project.

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.
