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 then have contractors bid on Phase Three, the construction. 

Choose your favorite material options

The Village is evaluating several materials for the Downtown Streetscape. A test site for the various material options has been installed on the northwest corner of Main and Crescent. Residents and business owners are encouraged to view the materials and vote of their favorite sidewalk, parkway and tree planter curb material. The Village will take aesthetics, public opinion, durability, maintenance and cost into account when selecting the final materials for the new streetscape.

Respondents will be entered to win a gift card to a Glen Ellyn business!
