A new chapter in Glen Ellyn's history: Rebuilding our downtown
The Village of Glen Ellyn is investing in a once-in-a-generation project to ensure Downtown is a destination for residents and visitors for years to come. The project is replacing and upgrading storm, sanitary, and water lines, building new sidewalks and roads and installing irrigated granite planters with seat walls. The design maintains the historic look and feel of downtown while meeting ADA accessibility requirements. The new streetscape also provides the opportunity to improve the health of the urban forest by improving growing conditions for trees, increasing the variety of tree species, and doubling the overall number of trees downtown!
