The City typically restores parkways with new sod. Special conditions such as a heavily shaded area or small area (less than 10 square feet) of disturbance may be seeded instead of sodded.
No sod will be replaced after acceptance by the City per City Code 8-6-5.
Residents should contact the project Resident Engineer to discuss specific details.
Work on private property cannot be included in the project. The homeowner is responsible for making all arrangements for private work, including acquiring applicable permits and hiring a contractor. For example, if you want to replace your driveway (from sidewalk to garage), you will need to acquire a permit from Community and Economic Development at (847) 391-5380 and make arrangements with a contractor. The City's contractor may be available to do private work, but the homeowner must contact the contractor directly.
