Green Bay Trail Open House October 25
If you are a Green Bay Trail user and have thoughts on how you’d like to see it improved in the future, stop by Village Hall at 510 Green Bay Road on Tuesday, October 25 from 6 – 8 PM to share your input. This session will be led by the Lakota Group, which is working with the Village and the Park District to create a plan for the community resource that is the trail.
Leaf Collection Underway
The last day to place leaves on your parkway for collection is by 7 AM on Monday, November 28. Leaves placed on the parkway after 7 AM on November 28 may not be collected.

Please do not rake leaves into the street, as leaves clog storm sewers, leading to flooded streets and yards. If you hire a service to handle your leaves, please inform them of this request. Also, please do not park in front of leaf piles, when possible, to enable the Village to easily access them.

Volunteer to Help Friends of the Green Bay Trail Maintain Plant Life: October 22, 9 - 11 AM
The Friends of the Green Bay Trail invite volunteers as they remove invasive plants and gather seeds to plant on the trail. They will meet at 9 AM on October 22 at the Mary Street trail entrance (in Glencoe) and discuss the work plan at that time. Bring work gloves and pruners if you have them. Parking is available on Mary Street and Woodlawn Avenue. 

Friends of the Green Bay Trail Seed Cleaning Event: October 22, 2 - 4 PM
Join the Friends as they sort, clean, and separate seeds gathered from the trail. Cleaned seeds will be dispersed on the trail later this fall and winter. Registration required for this event. The event's location will be shared with registrants.

Visit the Friends of the Green Bay Trail's website for more information on both events. Their photo contest runs through October 31.  
Winnetka Futures Online Open House: Last Day to Participate
If you couldn’t make it to the Community Open House for the Winnetka Futures 2040 Comprehensive Plan, there’s still a chance to share your thoughts and feedback through an Online Open House, which ends today. Share your thoughts, ideas, and priorities for our community and give feedback on the work that the Lakota Group has undertaken with the Village and the Plan Commission over many months.
