Thank you to everyone who voted and participated in the dialogue about Home Rule. As you may already know, the referendum failed. Some residents may be asking “what’s next”? The answer is -- nothing. The designation of Home Rule would have been another tool in the toolbox the village uses to deal with many of the issues that are faced by the village. Beach Park is not in a crisis situation, nor did it depend upon this designation to balance a budget or amass any sort of arbitrary power. Not having the tool of Home Rule means that the village will operate as it has for the past 30 years.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call 847-746-1770.

The Lake County Forest Preserves will be dispatching professionally trained crews to burn natural habitat in neighboring forest preserves. The crews will carefully choose locations, dates and times based on specific ground and weather conditions. A key goal is to avoid smoke blowing towards homes or highways. Residents with special health concerns or questions about the LCFP controlled burn program should call 847-968-3293 or visit the website at

The controlled burns are the most efficient and economical tool available for managing Lake County's natural communities. Without fires, non native, invasive species such as buckthorn and honeysuckle would shade out native plants. This disrupts the natural processes important to the local ecosystem.
