Community Improvement Program
The 10-Year Community Improvement Program (CIP) is a working document that allows the Village to map out priorities for investing in the Village's infrastructure (including water and sewer lines, roads, curbs and gutters) as well as capital equipment (such as ambulances and Public Works vehicles). Each year, actual expenditures proposed in the CIP are brought forth to the Village Board as part of the budget discussion.
The State recently mandated that all communities with populations of less than 25,000 consolidate their emergency dispatching centers. In compliance with this mandate, the Village will consolidate dispatch services with the Village of Glenview no later than July 1, 2017.
Glencoe loves its downtown and the Village embarked on the Downtown Tune-Up to look for ways of enhancing, promoting and extending its best features. The result is the Downtown Plan.

Water System Master Plan
The Water System Master Plan is comprised of two major initiatives: (1) the Water Distribution System Plan and (2) the Water Supply Planning Report. The Water Distribution System Plan is helping the Village to prioritize infrastructure projects (water mains, the water tower, fire hydrants), while the Water Supply Planning Report addresses options for the Water Treatment Plant moving forward, including the possibility of moving and rebuilding, renovating or closing the plant completely in favor of consolidating with another plant.
2017 Construction Projects
Glencoe is quickly approaching our sesquicentennial (150th birthday). While little of our public infrastructure remains from 1869, much of it is approaching multiple decades in age. Learn what projects are slated for the upcoming year.
