Flagg Creek Beginning Next Phase of Project
Flagg Creek Water Reclamation District (FCWRD) recently began the next phase of the project constructing a major sanitary sewer relief sewer. The project runs through sections of Hinsdale, Westmont and Clarendon Hills and includes more than $14 million in improvements.
Work is taking place on Park Avenue at the intersection of Western Avenue. Work is expected to continue at this location through March 7 and will result in the closure of Park Avenue immediately east of Western. The area will be completely closed to traffic during construction hours, which are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Detours will be posted directing west-bound traffic to Walker Avenue. Businesses will be accessible, including the Post Office. Following March 7, construction will continue west on Park Avenue.

Public Invited to Comment on Train Station Project
Over the last several months, the Village has undertaken a Train Station Area Redevelopment Planning Project and is now inviting the public to comment on the future of the train station area. A community meeting is planned for Monday, March 14 at 7 p.m. at Prospect School.
The planning project expands upon the Village’s 2006 Downtown Master Plan. The proposal outlines potential opportunities for public and private investment to better utilize the train station site and parking. The public meeting is an excellent opportunity to review the concepts and have a say in what the site may look like in the future. While there are no firm plans to move forward with construction on the site, an approved concept plan will help the Village plan for improvements and provide a starting point for potential developers.
The Train Station Area Redevelopment Plan is funded through a grant from the Regional Transportation Authority and matching funds from the West Suburban Mass Transit District.
Special Events Committee Seeks Volunteers
The Village’s Special Events Committee is in charge of planning and running the Dancin’ in the Street summer concert series. Committee members meet once or twice a month beginning in January and then are asked to commit time on Wednesday evenings in the summer to help run the concert events. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Christina Collison at [email protected]
