TRAFFIC MEASURES FOR CONSTRUCTION: To facilitate getting the residents access to their homes and to reduce the congestion on the streets during construction we have changed Norfolk to make it a temporary one way street westbound only from Rose Place to Prospect. In a similar fashion we have changed Golf Road making it a temporary one way street northbound only from Chestnut to Chicago. A detour route for thru traffic is also in place using Prospect to Chicago. Once we have completed the curb and shoulder work along Golf and Norfolk and restored them to two way traffic, then we will make Waverly and Chestnut one way streets west of Rose Place when road construction begins there. Waverly and Chestnut east of Rose Place are dead end streets and we will maintain two-way traffic on each street for those residents. We will get Golf Road fully restored to two-way traffic before changing Rose Place. Norfolk will be fully open to two way traffic before we change Chestnut to one-way traffic during construction. A detour route using Norfolk and Golf will be in place prior to the switch. Full construction update available here.
West Nile still a threat in Clarendon Hills: Although Labor Day has come and gone, mosquitoes will remain active until the first hard freeze of the year. The threat of West Nile Virus transmission to humans will remain through that time. Residents are encouraged to maintain appropriate preventative measures to minimize mosquito exposure. Wear long pants, long sleeves and closed toe shoes when outdoors to cover skin. Use insect repellent when outdoors during dawn/dusk periods when mosquitoes are most active. Finally, remove any containers, etc around the home which can collect water and breed mosquitoes.
Electric Aggregation: The change over to the new electric aggregation contract has started. Residents should expect to see Dynegy listed as the electric supplier on their bills starting after the September Billing for more information go to our electric aggregation page.
Street Project Update : Today the contractor put down the binder course along Middaugh and returned the street to normal two way traffic. All driveways are open at least temporarily for the holiday weekend. Residents can park again along Middaugh in accordance with normal posted parking restrictions. The concrete subcontractor is returning next Tuesday and Wednesday to finish up the small pieces of concrete shoulders and to cast the three remaining concrete aprons. Chicagoland Paving will begin working on the asphalt driveway aprons next week as well. Residents will be contacted to move their cars as needed.
For those of you on McIntosh, Blodgett and Gilbert the contractor has provided you with temporary gravel driveways for the holiday weekend. All driveways are temporarily open. Beginning on Tuesday the contractor will begin to set the pins and string line for the new concrete shoulders on the east side of all three streets and the southern west side of McIntosh. The contractor will knock on doors to ask for the residents to pull their cars out of the driveways as they proceed. The plan is to begin to pour the new concrete shoulders on Wednesday and Thursday morning followed immediately by casting the concrete driveway aprons. Along the way, the contractor will cast the few concrete aprons along with crosswalks and sidewalks on the west side previously skipped. The goal is to have all concrete work completed by Friday, September 11th in this area.
As of now the longer plan is to begin on Monday, September 14th grinding the existing asphalt streets of Norfolk (Oxford to Prospect), Gilbert (Burlington to Norfolk), Blodgett (Burlington to Norfolk) and McIntosh (Burlington to Norfolk). If all goes to plan, the contractor will prime on Wednesday, September 16th in the early morning hours and place the binder course of asphalt along those streets that Wednesday.
Storm sewer work has begun in Phase II at the intersection of Norfolk and Golf. Storm sewer work will resume next Tuesday and will continue in the intersections of Waverly and Rose Place; Chestnut and Rose Place; Norfolk and Rose Place and other locations for the new 2 weeks or so.

LGDF Cuts: You may have heard something about Governor Rauner’s proposed State budget cutting revenues that belong to local governments. Specifically, The Governor has proposed cutting the local share of the state income tax (LGDF) by 50%. If this went into effect it would cost the Village of Clarendon Hills about $410,000/year. Such a cut would force all municipalities to cut services, reduce capital improvements or raise local taxes, if the last is even an option. Bottom line – the Governor is proposing taking the Village’s share, which you paid through your state income tax, and using it to fix the State’s budget problems.
If you would like more information please take a few minutes to watch the video provided by the DuPage Mayor’s and Manager’s Conference which is available via this link, which explains this matter in greater detail. We urge you to send an e-mail to the Governor, and our local legislators, supporting keeping our local taxes here in Clarendon Hills by clicking this link .
