Envision the new downtown Glen Ellyn with this video showing what the new streetscape will look like

About the project

Downtown Glen Ellyn as a special place where people gather to shop, dine and meet their neighbors. The Downtown Streetscape and Utility project will enhance the downtown for generations to come.

The project is currently in Phase Two. During this phase several important elements are decided on including materials, number and placement of trees, and streetscape furniture. At the end of this phase, the Village will have a set of construction ready drawings. The Village will then have contractors bid on Phase Three, the construction. 

Preferred materials

Over 470 residents, visitors, and business owners voted – in person and online – on which materials they prefer for the new downtown streetscape. Survey respondents viewed the material options at the test site at Main and Crescent and selected their favorite sidewalk, parkway and tree planter curb option.
