Hillgrove Avenue Streetscape - Input Wanted

Western Springs Logo

HILLGROVE AVENUE STREETSCAPE - Have your say on a streetscape project in downtown Western Springs

The Village has recently invested in streetscape projects, such as sidewalks, plantings, furnishings, and lighting around the Metra station and commuter platforms. Our focus is shifting to Hillgrove Avenue, from Wolf Road to Walnut Street. We want to continue to support our vibrant businesses and offer a welcoming downtown environment with improved sidewalks, crosswalks, plantings, and seating areas.

 Do you have ideas about what makes the perfect sidewalk café? Have you seen examples of plantings or amenities that might suit downtown Western Springs? Snap and share some photos with us – we’d love to see them!

Share your suggestions by emailing photos  (.jpg or .png format) to

All photos due by July 5, 2022.

Stay tuned for a public open house later this summer where we will preview preliminary concepts for community input.
