History

On March 1, 2016, the Board of Trustees considered the several administrative items which pertain to the project, including agreements between the Village of Glenview and the various ownership parties for new signage, revised maintenance responsibilities, right-of-way dedication, and construction contracts. 

On February 16, 2016, the Village Board of Trustees held a workshop, at which an update on all the streetscape related design efforts to date were reviewed, in addition to various administrative items related to the streetscape. 

​Previously reviewed plans and staff reports associated with the design review of the streetscape can be found at the links below.
