Happy Fall! The leaves in the Village are changing and it is one of my favorite times of the year. This weekend is a busy one as we prepare to co-host the Taste of Burr Ridge (text TASTE to (630) 647-5683 for 10% off) and the Annual Car Show at Burr Ridge Village Center. I hope you’ll join us! There is still time to register for both. As leaves start to fall, please remember: Brush Pick Up Start Date is Monday, October 25th. Make sure to put branches in the parkway by no later than 7:00 a.m. on the 25th. More details here

As a reminder, The Village of Burr Ridge will be closed on October 11th for In-Service Day. Please leave us a message while we are away at (630) 654-8181. Halloween is nearly upon us. Do you have your costume? We are excited to see everyone out and about trick or treating on October 31st from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tag us in your photos with the hashtag #VBRHalloween so we can see your costumes and be entered to win a $25 gift card from a Burr Ridge business of your choice. 

Have a great month and stay safe!

Sidewalk Project
A sidewalk project that broke ground in 2019 on County Line Road between Plainfield Road and 60th Street resumed construction on Monday, September 27. This project fills a significant gap in our Village’s pathway network and leverages a $284,000 federal grant to complete. Occasional traffic delays can be expected in this area until late November.
