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. 

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

Understand Your Property Tax Assessment

To help taxpayers evaluate their property assessment notice, the Chief County Assessment Office is hosting several tax assessment help center sessions. Property owners can speak one-on-one with taxpayer advocates to understand the information on their assessment, see how to use the County’s new web applications and learn about homestead exemptions, which can potentially provide tax relief. Property owners can also visit their local township assessor’s office or the Chief County Assessment Office at 18 N. County St., Waukegan, from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, to receive assistance. No appointment is necessary. For more information and the schedule of sessions click here.
