Phase I: Cumberland, Roslyn, Melrose
After extensive study and planning, the Village is close to finalizing the design for addressing flooding basements and roadways on Raleigh, Leicester and Warwick. One of the most visible components of the Green Streets program is the road surface. Our analysis points to porous pavers as being a significantly better option than porous asphalt. In October 2020, the Village had sent communications to residents located in the project area. Please click here to view the correspondence that was sent to residents on Raleigh, Leicester, and Warwick. The permeable paver display was setup in front of Village Hall, later moved onto Leicester, for residents to review the proposed paver color and shape. After reviewing them, residents were asked to provide feedback to Village Staff.
There's still time! Did you miss the display or want to have another look at them?
Check out the below pictures! If you would like to have a closer look, please reach out to Village Hall and we can coordinate a viewing of the pavers. Then, please e-mail us at email@example.com to let us know your opinion, ask questions, or just chat. Hearing from you will help guide the decision the Village Board makes in the near future.
