We take great pride in our Community. We have retained our quaint, rural atmosphere while being less than an hour from downtown Chicago. Our tree-lined streets, award-winning schools and vintage homes along with modern shopping centers, new subdivisions and commercial developments combine to create a truly unique place to live and work.

Thank you for taking a virtual tour of our community. Please come back often!


 

 

UPCOMING EVENTS:

The Public Works Department will begin picking up leaves in the Village on Monday, October 13th. Leaves raked in rows along the curbside are picked up by a large vacuum machine on a weekly basis until the week of Thanksgiving. Residents should place leaves in a pile or row in the parkway between the sidewalk and curb as near to the street as possible. In areas without curbs, leaves should be placed on the grass or parkway at the edge of the street. The leaf machine will make at least one pass per week down each street in the Village.

 

Election packets for the April 7, 2015 election are now available at the Beecher Village Hall, 724 Penfield Street. The filing period is from December 15 through December 22, 2014.
