Welcome to Our New Neighbors
On behalf of the Village of Glencoe and it's officials and staff, welcome to our beautiful community! We are pleased that you have chosen Glencoe as your new home, and hope that you will share our pride in living here.
Please visit our Village Hall (in the middle of "downtown Glencoe"), open 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., at your earliest convenience. The Public Works and Finance departments can help you set up your water service as well as garbage and recycling collection. Village Hall front desk staff and the Manager's Office would be happy to help answer any questions you may have about our other services and how to get involved. The Public Safety Department (emergency - 911; non-emergency (847) 835-4112
) is, of course, open 24 hours a day.
Among the best ways to learn about the Village is to navigate around our Village website. You will find current information about Village special events
(such as our seasonal French Market, Memorial Day celebrations and Fourth of July festivities) as well as helpful general information and links to other useful sites. Also watch the mail for the Glencoe Quarterly
which contains helpful information about Village events and activities. Get bi-weekly updates from the Village delivered right to your inbox via Village eNews
and stay on top of urgent information via our emergency call-out system, Glencoe CONNECT
One of the most important factors making Glencoe such a great community is the participation by its citizens in community affairs. Glencoe provides numerous opportunities for everyone to make a contribution - whether through the Village government, District 35, Glencoe Park District and Glencoe Library Boards or other community activities. We depend heavily on that participation, and I hope that you will become involved in whatever area is of most interest to you.
Again, a hearty welcome to our Village! I hope to have the opportunity to meet you in the near future.
