2016 State of the Village Report

In April, President Nelson presented a State of the Village report before the Dundee Lions Club, outlining goals and objectives of the organization, ongoing projects and accomplishments of the previous 12 months.

Attached below is a copy of this report, as well as a final status report regarding the 2015 Village Board Goals.


Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor

The Longmeadow Parkway Fox River Bridge Corridor is a proposed four-lane Fox River Bridge crossing and four-lane arterial roadway corridor with a median, approximately 5.6 miles in length, designed to alleviate traffic congestion in northern Kane County.

The proposed road passes through portions of the Villages of Algonquin, Carpentersville and Barrington Hills, as well as unincorporated areas of Kane County. The western terminus is at Huntley Road west of Randall Road, approximately 1,300 feet northwest of the Huntley/Boyer intersection. From Huntley Road to the Fox River, the corridor primarily traverses mostly undeveloped properties or new subdivisions; these subdivisions were developed with a dedicated right-of-way to accommodate the proposed corridor. After crossing the river, the corridor parallels existing Bolz Road, to the eastern project terminus at Illinois Route 62.

The Village of West Dundee, along with Kane County, McHenry County, Carpentersville, Algonquin, East Dundee, Sleepy Hollow, Gilberts and Huntley have passed resolutions in support of the bridge/corridor over the course of many years since the project began.

Below are some key pieces of information regarding the Longmeadow Parkway Bridge Corridor:

- The Rt. 72 (West Dundee), Main St. (Carpentersville) and Rt. 62 (Algonquin) bridges are currently double their capacity.

- Population west of the Fox River is expected to increase 150,000 by 2040, further impacting traffic congestion and the resulting effects on the economy and community.

- There have been no new river crossings been built in Northern Kane County since the I-90 Tollway Bridge in the 1960's.

- The project location has been approved by the IL Dept. of Natural Resources and the Army Corp of Engineers and is the only approved bridge location between Carpentersville and the McHenry County line.

- More than $35 million has been spent on engineering and land acquisition and 60% of the land has been purchased, to date.

- The project will bring 4000+ jobs to Kane County.

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.


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.
