Parkway Tree Planting Program

50/50 Parkway Tree Replanting Orders are still being accepted by the Public Works Department until September 6, 2019.  This program is intended to replace trees that have been removed from the Village parkways, mostly due to disease or poor health. Residents are encouraged to participate in this voluntary program.  This program is first come, first served. Each tree is a 2-inch caliper tree planted in the fall with a one-year warranty.  Tree replanting order forms can be found at www.libertyville.com/50-50trees.

Recreational Cannabis Public Information

On June 25, 2019 Governor Pritzker signed the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act (CRTA) which legalizes the sale, possession, and use of cannabis for recreational purposes in limited quantities by persons 21 years and older, beginning January 1, 2020. 
As with medical cannabis, the Recreational Cannabis Act provides a limited number of licenses that the State will issue for cultivation centers and dispensaries. The Village may prohibit or significantly limit the location of recreational cannabis businesses by ordinance. The Village Board referred this matter to the Plan Commission for a public hearing on July 23, 2019 and the Plan Commission held the hearing on August 26, 2019 at the Civic Center. Next the Plan Commission is expected to make a recommendation to the Village Board on whether or not the sale of recreational cannabis will be prohibited or allowed, and what process will be utilized and in what locations.  The Plan Commission concluded public testimony and continued the matter to their September 23rd meeting.  Following a recommendation from the Plan Commission, the matter will be reviewed by the Village Board at an upcoming Village Board meeting. To learn more or complete a form to share your thoughts and opinions on this topic click here

Historic Preservation Meeting on Theater Demolition Request

On September 16, 2019 the Historic Preservation Commission will consider a request by the owner of the Libertyville Theater property to demolish the building. Because the Libertyville Theatre is located within a designated historic district, the demolition request must be reviewed by the Historic Preservation Commission, which will make a recommendation to the Village Board for a final decision. The meeting will be held at the Libertyville Civic Center at 7:00 p.m. Please consider attending this important meeting. 

Community Bike Ride

The Libertyville Bicycle Advisory Commission invites you to the 2019 annual Community Bike Ride on  Sunday, September 8 at 9:00 a.m. at Adler Park. The event is FREE! To register click here. Sign up will be available the day of the event as well.
