Parkway Tree Program
July 2014 -- Through its long-running Parkway Tree Program, the Village of Bartlett has shared the cost of planting trees with homeowners and has diversified the number of species used for parkway planting. However, the program was changed last year, 2013, to better address the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) infestation threatening all ash trees in Illinois. The Village will continue to reforest Bartlett’s parkways this season, once again using the revised plan.
Under part one of the plan, the Village will plant smaller diameter trees (1-inch) area by area to replace ash trees that have been removed. The type of new tree planted and its location will be determined by the Village and there will be no cost to residents.
The second part of the plan allows homeowners to participate in tree replanting. Residents who would like a tree that is larger in diameter (2-inches) can select a tree at a flat fee of $50. Residents can select the variety of tree they would like planted from the list on the Public Works Department webpage. Due to the fixed number of available trees, orders will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. A tree can only be ordered if the ash tree at the address has already been removed.
July 28, 2014 -- Crews from the Northwest Mosquito Abatement District are actively monitoring/treating both floodwater areas and stagnant water habitats and are advising residents of the district to begin inspecting their properties for stagnant water-filled containers that may produce mosquitoes.

Lane Closure on IL Route 25
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced that, weather permitting, a road reconstruction project on IL Route 25/Stearns Road to Dunham Road in South Elgin will begin Tuesday, April 1.
The work will involve complete reconstruction of a portion of IL Route 25/Stearns Road, construction of additional new traffic lanes, a new storm sewer and traffic signals. In addition, a new roadway bridge span, along with a new bridge carrying the Union Pacific Railroad over IL 25 will be constructed. Work will be done under staged construction with one lane open in each direction. The project has an anticipated completion date of August 31, 2015.
Motorists can expect delays during times when the lane closures are in effect and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signing in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
