Roselle Named Tree City USA Community for 30th Year  
For the 30th consecutive year, Roselle has been named a Tree City USA Community by the Arbor Day Foundation to honor its commitment to community forestry. For the past three decades, Roselle has met the four standards to become a Tree City USA Community: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance.

Learn more about the Tree City USA program on the Arbor Day Foundation website.

Volunteers Needed for DuPage River Sweep May 21  
DuPage River Sweep
Volunteers are needed on Saturday, May 21 from 9:00 a.m. to noon to help remove trash and debris from the DuPage River, and to restore stream banks and its tributaries.

More than 10,800 volunteers have removed nearly 3,252 tons of garbage from DuPage County streams since 1991. The sweep encompasses the east and west branches of the DuPage River and Salt Creek, as well as many tributaries. In 2015, a record was set by volunteers with over 95 miles of shoreline cleared of debris. Items such as a car bumper, about 40 golf balls, a tricycle, a no-parking sign, and a shopping cart were removed.

To register for the River Sweep, or for more information, please call The Conservation Foundation at (630) 428-4500 x22 or visit the  DuPage County River Sweep website. 
Runway Rotation Plan Adopted to Balance Overnight Noise Near O'Hare International Airport

The O'Hare Noise Compatibility Commission voted on May 6 to approve a weekly nighttime runway rotation plan for O'Hare International Airport. 
The Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Plan was developed by the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), in consultation with Suburban O'Hare Commission (SOC) aviation experts. The purpose of the plan is to establish a weekly runway rotation program designed to achieve a more balanced distribution of noise exposure for Chicago and suburban communities.

Under the Fly Quiet plan, runways used for nighttime air travel will change from week to week over a 12-week period. A secondary configuration is included for when weather and other factors keep the primary pattern from being feasible. More information about the Fly Quiet Plan is available on the O'Hare Noise Compatibility Commission website. 
Cruise Night Cruise Nights are returning to Roselle Friday nights this summer with a new location. Cruise Nights are relocating to the American Legion Post 1084 parking lot, 344 E. Maple Ave., starting May 20 and continuing through August 26.

Cruise Nights will run every Friday night from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. and feature music by Ram Jams DJ Service featuring Jose Ramos, special live entertainment, T-shirts, and giveaways. Also back this year is the Roselle Cruise Night Membership Gold Card, good for a 10 percent discount at nearly 30 local retailers. Get more details on the official Roselle Cruise Night website.  
As a reminder to residents, recreational vehicles cannot be permanently parked in the driveway. This includes, but is not limited to boats, campers, all types of trailers, automobiles not regularly used for normal travel, and recreational vehicles such as snowmobiles and ATVs.
Village Code also dictates storage and placement of refuse and recycling carts when not placed out for pickup on garbage collection days. Refuse and recycling carts must be stored out of view from the street, which may include storage within a garage or shed, or in the back yard. Carts that are stored on the side of a house must be fully screened from the street by shrubbery or a fence. Refuse and recycling carts may be placed out after 6:00 p.m. the day before scheduled pickup, and must be removed before midnight of the day on which collections occur.   
Please visit the Village of Roselle website for more information about code enforcement and local ordinance compliance.
