LEAD SERVICE LINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT UPDATE

The Village of Beecher is pleased to announce a project to replace all lead water service pipes in town.  The Lead Water Services Replacement project will include the older section of town described roughly by all buildings west of Dixie Highway.  Replacement will include a new polyethylene water service from the water main in the street to the water meter inside the home, installed with trenchless methods to minimize disturbance.  The project will replace service pipes that are over 70 years old, eliminating any potential risk from lead exposure in drinking water.  Please contact Village Hall for more information.

The work to replace the water services will be wholly financed by the Water Pollution Control Loan Program through the State Revolving Fund (SRF).  The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The $2,953,538.50 cost of the project will be completely forgiven by the SRF program as part of a state-wide lead replacement initiative.  SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.

VILLAGE SIGNS NEW ELECTRIC AGGREGATION PROGRAM FEATURING 100% GREEN ENERGY

Following a competitive bid process, the Village is happy to announce Village residents are eligible to be a part of 100% green energy for your electric supply through Eligo Energy Services.  For all eligible members of this program, the green energy rate will always be equal to ComEd’s rate with one very important difference – the aggregation customers’ energy usage will be offset by renewable energy!

Residents and small business owners who are currently enrolled in the Village’s electric aggregation program will automatically be enrolled enrolled and see a small decrease in your electrical rate, unless you choose to opt-out. If you currently have a contract with another electric supplier, you will continue with that supplier unless you choose to opt-in.  The program term is for 12 months ending October 2022. 

Notices explaining this program were mailed to Village residents the week of August 9th. This program is only available to Village residents. Washington Township has their own electrical aggregation program for residents in unincorporated Beecher.

Program benefits include reducing the Village of Beecher’s carbon footprint and the Village will earn designation as a U.S. EPA Green Power Partner at zero cost. 

NOTE: No one from Eligo, ComEd or the Village of Beecher will ever visit your home or call you to enroll, and never reveal your ComEd account number or allow a solicitor to view your ComEd bill.

If you have more questions about the program or green energy visit:  https://www.eligoenergy.com/cities/il/Beecher, contact Eligo Energy Services at beecher@eligoenergy.com, or call 708-669-3555.


ILLIANA CROSSROADS BUSINESS PARK

A preliminary hearing was held to consider a request for an exploratory proposal and preliminary plan approval for a planned development having I-1 Limited Industrial Zoning for a proposed business park. The parcel consists of 109 acres and is bounded by Church Road on the north, Dixie Highway and Catalpa Street to the east, Miller Street to the south, and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks to the west.  The property is currently zoned R-1 PUD for a development which was approved in 2007 but never occurred and the property has since changed hands several times.  It is currently being farmed.  The Village placed the west portion of this property in its land use plan as industrial with the east portion being multi-family for senior housing.  The Village also placed this property into its TIF District in 2019 and into an enterprise zone in 2017.   The petitioner, Art Van Baren, wishes to develop and sell 47 industrial lots totaling 61 acres with the remaining 48 acres being water retention and open space.  More information on this proposal is available below.
