Mayor's Message

July, 2017

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer in beautiful Indian Head Park.

Please join us for a “Picnic & Flick in the Park” on July 22nd! SEASPAR and the Village will be hosting a picnic and movie (DreamWorks’s TROLLS) in Blackhawk Park at 6:30pm, with the movie starting at 8:30pm. Please RSVP by July 19th, although reservations are not required, but greatly appreciated.

Our Village Administrator John DuRocher and I have recently met with the Illinois Tollway Authority, regarding the I-294 expansion project. No decision has been made as to  land acquisitions for the extra one to two lane addition. The Illinois Tollway Authority is executing a plan on what the ideal, wider I-294 Tollway will look like. When this plan is finished, they will then look at what can be done to add lanes to the I-294 Tollway. Expected time for an update is in the fall of 2017. The Tollway is seeking Indian Head Park residents' input with a survey, that should take no more than five minutes. All survey entries must be received by July 14, 2017. As the planning process moves forward the Illinois Tollway Authority will continue to share updates and changes on the Illinois Tollway I-294 Corridor Expansion webpage.

Lastly but not least, I encourage all residents to sign up on our new Village website to receive important notifications. You can sign up for alerts ranging from the Police Department, Community Alerts, and even the Public Works Department. To receive these alerts please sign up on our Stay Informed Portal, and personalize what you would like to be alerted & informed about! 

Please let me know about any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have. You may also use the Concern or Compliment or Community Voice features within the website under Residents.

Thank you,

Mayor Hinshaw
