September 11 Remembered


The Village would like to take time to remembe9-11r those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.   At noon, on September 11 in cities throughout America, citizens are asked to stop for a moment, wherever they are, and remember for one minute the thousands of innocent lives lost on 9/11 and take pride in the strength and perseverance of the American people. 


On this tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the Village will acknowlege Patriot Day and fly all flags at half staff.


The Village's Annual Picnic is finally here.  Come down to Ellsworth Park on Saturday, September 10 from 12 noon to 5 pm.  All residents are welcome to enjoy some of the great festivities the picnic has to offer, including:novak

  • Live Music from Hat Trick;
  • Brats & Hot Dogs provided by Usingers;
  • Corn on the Cob;
  • Soda, water, and beer;
  • Recreational Activities for all!

A New, Safer Look


Check out the newly installed pedestrian activated LED signage at both Regent and Pelham Parkway crossing of Brown Deer Road.  The push button activated signage engages advanced blinker lighting, as well as state-of-the-art RRFB lighting at the crosswalk.  The new signage is designed to improve pedestrian safety in the area, by drawing drivers attention to the crosswalks.  The signs are solar powered with warning signage controlled by wireless radio transmission.  


In addition to the new pedestrian signage, Village crews will be replacing sign posts along Brown Deer Road and Lake Drive over the next few weeks.  The new aesthetic poles provide a warmer welcome through the Village's main corridor, and also provide less long-term maintenance needs.  

Construction Season Winding Down


Road construction on Bayside Drive, Tennyson Drive and W. Ellsworth Place concluded this week, with the final surface coat placed on Tuesday.  Work was delayed slightly after the road bed was found unstable, requiring additional work prior to final asphalt placement.  Final road shouldering and landscape work will take place over the next few weeks, completing the work in the area.  


In addition to road paving, work included cross culvert replacement, residential culvert replacement, and ditch regrading to aid in the flow of stormwater.  The project was completed by Stark Asphalt, with excavation work performed by Praeger & Sons.   

Yard Waste Pickup Returns

The week of September 12 marks the return of yard waste collection throughout the Village.  Yard waste was not collected this past week due to the shortened holiday week.  Please remember, have all your items out to the curb by 7am on the day of your scyard waste heduled pickup. 


If you have excessive amounts of yard waste that you need cleared, please stop into Village Hall to schedule a special pickup.  Also, residents can use the yard waste drop off site, located just off of Fairy Chasm Road, at any time.  Take a moment to view the remainder of the year's scheduled pickups.
