Stormwater Survey: DuPage County Stormwater Management is encouraging residents and business owners to complete a brief survey regarding water quality in the County’s waterways. Stormwater Management is conducting the survey to measure public awareness of stormwater runoff and its effect on local streams and rivers. In an effort to attain healthier waterways nationwide, public education about water quality is among activities mandated by the Clean Water Act. Responses will be used to create and modify water quality outreach materials, which are aimed at educating residents on ways to reduce pollution in the County’s waterways. The end goal is to make local rivers and streams supportive of both aquatic life and recreational uses. The survey is available through the end of November at www.surveymonkey.com/s/dpcwaterquality.
One Way on Coe Rd.: Road construction has forced the Police Department to recommend closing Coe Rd for southbound traffic between Naperville Road and Chicago Avenue. This effectively makes the street one way. This was done for safety reasons. If you have any questions about the change please contact Chief Jenkins at (630) 286-5460. This is expected to be in effect, starting 3:30 PM Oct 10th, through Nov 12th.
Road Construction Update: The contractor will be pouring concrete on October 18th if weather allows.
For the most part we have completed pouring the new concrete shoulder and concrete aprons along:
- West side of Stonegate
- South side of Naperville
- South and east side of Larkspur
- North and east side of Columbine
- West side of Coe
- South side of Hickory
- South side of Walnut
- South side of Maple
The new concrete at the above locations is currently curing and we anticipate opening the concrete driveways on Monday, October 13th. We have begun to grade and backfill along the new concrete shoulder. This work will continue over the next week or so.
The contractor will begin the layout work this Saturday to switch to the other/opposite side of the streets listed above. At this time it looks like beginning on Wednesday, October 15th we will start to close the driveways on the opposite side of the streets. As before it is expected the concrete work will take between 12 -14 days. We again reiterate we need dry weather conditions for this schedule to be met. Rainy days will push this schedule back. Like before those of you losing access to your driveways should park your cars on the opposite side of the street from your house.
As you know the Village has decided to implement a new traffic plan along Middaugh and Coe Roads during the next phase. This will involve making Middaugh one way south bound only from Naperville Road to Chicago Avenue. At the same time Coe Road will be posted as one way north bound only from Chicago Avenue to Naperville Road. This temporary change is being done to address the resident’s concerns expressed during construction. We will be implementing the new temporary traffic pattern by October 10th.
Downtown Master Plan First Reading Moved to October 20th at 7:00 PM: The first reading of the Downtown Master Plan at the Village Board meeting has been moved to October 20th at 7:00 PM. As a reminder, at the last meeting the Village Board voted to remove any changes to building height from the plan and removed the change in zoning for the Village Hall Property. The joint governmental center idea was kept as a recommendation for a study but no longer specifies the train station property as the location.
