Elm Street Business District: Streetscape and Signage Plan Open House

November 22, 2017

Calling all Winnetkans! Join us at an open house on Monday, December 4 at 6:00 PM, to discuss the Elm Street Business District Streetscape and Signage Plan. Village staff and consultants Teska Associates will be on hand at Village Hall, 510 Green Bay Road, to review the project scope and to discuss streetscape and signage opportunities.


Curbside Leaf Collection Extended to Tuesday, December 5

October 01, 2015

Winnetka’s annual curbside leaf collection program will run until Tuesday, December 5. Under this program, residents may rake their leaves to the parkway just inside the edge of the curb for collection by the Village. Please do not rake leaves into the streets. This creates a hazard, as leaves are slippery when wet; and also can clog storm sewers, leading to flooded streets and yards.


Thanksgiving Refuse & Recycling Schedule

November 13, 2017

The Public Works Department is closed on Thanksgiving, November 23, 2017. A holiday schedule for refuse and recycling collection will be in place the week of November 20th.
