MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR Dear Lincolnwood Chamber Members, Residents & Visitors: I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Lincolnwood, where successful businesses and strong values work together to support a community on the rise. In the following pages of this guide, you will find information about our village, which is committed to working as partners with the Lincolnwood Chamber of Commerce and Industry and its diverse membership, for the betterment of our village. The Chamber Board of Directors serves as a link between businesses, providing opportunities to meet, network and build local connections. For those businesses that are not yet part of the Chamber, please take this opportunity to join a group working toward an ever brighter future for Lincolnwood. If you are a resident, customer of a local business or simply a guest in Lincolnwood, please make it a point to use the services of the advertisers and Chamber members listed herein. As the Mayor of Lincolnwood, I would like to share some information with you about the village we are proud to call home. Lincolnwood has a population of approximately 12,500 residents, with over 4,400 residences. The village’s municipal neighbors include the City of Chicago and the Village of Skokie. The community is a compact 2.7 square miles of mature, familyoriented neighborhoods on tree-lined streets and satellite parks. Our outstanding school district is a draw to young families who value education. The village offers three major commercial corridors. The Lincolnwood Business Center offers space for light industry, warehouse and manufacturing. There are three active tax increment financing districts that provide funding opportunities for new and growing businesses. Revitalizing these areas supports the vision of modern (forward thinking) thriving business locations. I encourage you to join our flourishing business community by contacting Community Development Director Steve McNellis, whose information is listed in this booklet, and explore all of the options available.

and the vibrant Youth Strings Orchestra. The chamber orchestra consists of the area’s finest professional musicians. We were one of the first communities in the area to establish an ongoing commitment to the arts by providing and underwriting space and programs for sculpture installations, and exhibiting sculptures from throughout the world in Centennial Park and the Lincolnwood Business Center. Showcasing various Chicago area artists in our municipal center earned us the title of an “Arts Friendly Community” in 2007, and is strongly supported to date. The Lincolnwood Public Library, established in 1978, underwent a complete renovation and modernization in 2017. A variety of resources and activities are offered for all ages, at its location in the center of the village. The village has continued to experience significant redevelopment over the past 10 years. Recent openings include Stefani’s Prime Restaurant, Libanais Lebanese Eatery, Somerset Alpha shared-working space, the 383-unit Carrington of Lincolnwood senior living facility, 90 Miles Cuban restaurant, AT&T retail store, and the expansion of the original flagship Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria restaurant. In partnership with the City of Chicago, plans are in final development for a new streetscape along Devon Avenue, east of Lincoln Avenue. This project will breathe new life into an existing business district and draw interest for new businesses. Streamlining processes and permitting will help to attract new commercial tenants through that corridor in an effort to improve and grow our village. I proudly join with the Lincolnwood Chamber of Commerce and Industry to welcome you to Lincolnwood, where ”Chicago’s North Side meets the North Shore.” Lincolnwood truly is Chicago’s Best Kept Secret! We hope you will take the time to experience and enjoy all that our village has to offer. Life happens here, and we look forward to you being a part of it. Barry I.

LINCOLNWOOD MEANS LOCATION LINCOLNWOOD STATS

C

onveniently located within 10 miles of both downtown Chicago and O’Hare International Airport, Lincolnwood is ideally situated where the North Shore meets Chicago’s north side. Having the tranquility of a quiet suburban setting, Lincolnwood is just minutes from world-class museums and universities, lively nightlife and major sporting events. A Lincolnwood address is just a few miles from the magnificent Lake Michigan shoreline and Cook County Forest Preserves. Shopping is made easy with the Lincolnwood Town Center, an enclosed mall with about

100 stores. Access to any point in the metropolitan area is convenient with the Edens Expressway/I-94 at Lincolnwood’s doorstep. Commuter rail and rapid-transit routes to downtown Chicago are quick and within easy reach. Both CTA and Pace provide bus service to and within the village. At only 2.6 square miles and a population of approximately 12,500, Lincolnwood’s close-in location has all of the advantages of suburban life with the big city at its front door. Lincolnwood means location!

A BRIEF HISTORY 1816 ❚ First inhabitants, Potawatomi Indians, leave area after Indian Boundary Treaty. 1856 ❚ German immigrants arrive; European farming settlement begins. 1873 ❚ Halfway House Saloon opens as first commercial establishment. 1911 ❚ Village incorporated; 359 are residents. The village is first named Tessville after Johann Tess, the first European to settle the area. 1932 ❚ Lincoln Avenue becomes a state highway. Name change ❚ Tessville is renamed Lincolnwood in 1936. The name is derived, not directly from the name of the 16th president, but from Lincoln Avenue, which is itself named for former President Lincoln and bisects the community. The name also reflects the planting of 10,000 elm trees along streets in the village during the Great Depression, an effort made possible through the Works Progress Administration. 1938 ❚ Lincolnwood Elementary School District 74 opens. Housing ❚ More than half of all houses in Lincolnwood in 2017 were constructed between 1940 and 1959. 1942 ❚ Bell & Howell opens facilities, encouraging other businesses to move into the village. 1950 ❚ Population grows to 3,072. 1951 ❚ Edens Expressway opens.

1960 ❚ Population reaches more than 11,700. The Purple Hotel is constructed at the intersection of Lincoln and Touhy avenues. Named for the color of its brick, it becomes a long-standing icon. 1970 ❚ Village reaches peak population of 12,929. 1978 ❚ Lincolnwood Library District formed; Lincolnwood Chamber of Commerce & Industry created. Development ❚ In the mid-to-late-1980s, the village sees a few multistory condominium buildings. By 1990, the community is fully built out, and redevelopment starts in earnest. ❚ The Lincolnwood Town Center, a 100-store regional mall, is built on the former Bell & Howell headquarters property at McCormick Boulevard and Touhy Avenue, a new village hall complex is built along Lincoln Avenue and the village establishes its first fire department, having relied previously on the City of Chicago for fire service. This wave of redevelopment sees a number of new buildings constructed with Prairie-style architecture.

❚ By 1995, under the efforts of Mayor Madeleine Grant, the first woman president of the village, an economic development commission is formed to help foster continued community redevelopment and to ensure a strong local tax base. Mayor Grant also expands citizen participation in village government by creating several other citizen-led advisory boards. Since 2000 ❚ The village has continued to redevelop itself by spearheading construction of a new business roadway in the Lincolnwood Business Park, creating public parking lots, developing local and regional recreational paths, making enhancements to the Touhy-Crawford Business District and establishing a plan for the revitalization of Lincoln Avenue. Also, the village has attracted new retail business and new health care facilities, as well as new facilities for existing or expanding businesses. – Source: Lincolnwood Community Development Department.

PARKS AND RECREATION

L

incolnwood Parks and Recreation encourages the community to get active, connect with nature and to improve health and wellness by offering residents a wide variety of programs and services including fitness, athletics, after-school activities, senior programs and outdoor recreation. The parks and recreation department manages over 13 parks, many nestled within neighborhoods and within short walking distance, three bike/pedestrian paths, and an extensive aquatic facility and community center. According to the National Association of Realtors, parks, trails and playgrounds are among the top five most important community amenities that new home owners are looking for, and residences near neighborhood parks account for a 20 percent increase in property values. Living close to parks and recreation facilities is consistently related to higher physical activity levels for both adults and youth. The Institute of Medicine has stated that the walkability of neighborhoods and access to parks and recreation facilities are essential strategies for preventing childhood obesity. The Lincolnwood Parks and Recreation Department is committed to supporting the health and wellness of the community. The district’s GO LINCOLNWOOD fitness initiative encourages residents to make a commitment to walk each day for at least 30 minutes for health and wellness. From June to October each year, the park district will host free GO LINCOLNWOOD fitness activities to help residents reach their fitness goals. The park district’s largest community event of the year is the Lincolnwood Turkey Trot, which is now celebrating its 42nd year. This 5K/10 timed race and 5K fitness walk, which is always held the Sunday before Thanksgiving, also includes a Drumstick Dash for kids 6 and under. The Lincolnwood Turkey Trot attracts over 2,000 registered participants each year, as well as many more who come to cheer on the runners and walkers and to enjoy the festivities surrounding

WINTER

the event. It is a great local event that draws from many surrounding communities and is a source of local pride. Lincolnwood Parks and Recreation also places a high value on improving the quality of life in Lincolnwood by providing events that serve the entire community. For example, each of the Thursday Night Summer Concert evenings feature free face painting and an inflatable activity for kids that elevate them into minifestivals that attract upwards of 300 people of all ages to enjoy a relaxing evening in Proesel Park. This year, the park district will present some of the biggest performers in Chicago area, including ABBA Salute, Sushi Roll and The Student Body. With the support of local business partnerships, Lincolnwood Parks and Recreation is proud to present its annual special event line-up.

EDUCATION

LINCOLNWOOD SCHOOL DISTRICT 74 One District • Three Schools • One Vision Lincolnwood School District 74 encompasses three schools located on the same campus. Children are served from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. The vision of Lincolnwood School District 74 is that children become empowered for life. The mission is to build a community of learning that inspires curiosity, compassion, and actively engaged students striving for excellence. The District’s five-year strategic plan runs through 2019 with five core goals: 1. Develop and implement curriculum that leads to improved academic performance 2. Promote programs for the health and wellbeing of students 3. Strengthen community outreach and collaboration 4. Develop and implement plans for safe and efficient facilities 5. Provide opportunities for staff development An elected school board composed of seven officials, a superintendent of schools, an assistant

superintendent of curriculum and instruction, and a business manager are responsible for the overall function of the district. The community of Lincolnwood is supportive of the schools, students, and parents. Members of the Lincolnwood Police Department and Fire Department are available for presentations and to help ensure a safe school zone. The district collaborates with the Village of Lincolnwood and Lincolnwood Public Library in several events throughout the year to provide Lincolnwood residents convenient opportunities to sign-up for activities, attend community events, and more. The district’s middle school, Lincoln Hall, began extensive remodeling and upgrading during the summer of 2016. The third and final phase of the project will begin in the summer of 2018. District stakeholders developed a three-year renovation plan that will result in an entirely remodeled learning facility. The project plan incorporated the historical significance that Lincoln Hall represents in the community while providing District 74 children with an updated learning environment. A sampling of projects include newly constructed multi-grade STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) rooms; renovated science labs and library;

Villa Graziella

orchestra, band, art, music, global studies and food science classrooms; main office, main entrance; new student fitness center/health classroom; gymnasium; and several other areas have been completed to date.

RUTLEDGE HALL SCHOOL Rutledge Hall serves students in grades three through five. A strong academic program exists to meet the needs of the varied learners, with reading and math as core areas of focus. Other core academic areas of instruction include writing, science and social studies. A new STEMbased curriculum, Project Lead the Way Launch, was introduced to students in kindergarten through fifth grade during the 2017-18 school year. Additionally, art, music, library and physical education are taught on a regular basis to help students explore their talents. Technology is integrated throughout the day and in a variety of ways. Fifth-grade students were introduced to individual (1:1) iPads in the 2017-18 school year. For more information, visit rutledge.sd74.org.

LINCOLN HALL MIDDLE SCHOOL Lincoln Hall serves students in grades six through eight and offers a full spectrum of academic core courses, such as science, social studies, math, language arts, reading, foreign language, STEM and physical education. Furthermore, exploratory classes are offered at all grade levels in the areas of food science, music, chorale, art, and global perspectives. Technology is integrated throughout the educational setting as students participate in the

1:1 iPad initiative. Students acquire the skills they need to be successful in a complex, highly technical, knowledge-based economy. Lincoln Hall students utilize the new STEM labs every day. The STEM class utilizes nationally recognized Project Lead The Way curriculum. As STEM curriculum continues, students participate in several competitions throughout the school year. STEM experiences require students to apply concepts learned in other core areas to augment the district’s already rich curricula. Beyond the academic day, Lincoln Hall offers a wide range of co-curricular and extracurricular activities, providing opportunities for the students to expand their talents and experiences. Students may participate in several clubs and organizations that range from competitive sports and academic contests to student government, culture clubs, and fine arts (band, orchestra, chorale and theater).

Special programs are available for students who qualify and may need additional support. Programs in special education, gifted and English learners help enhance the learning process and help students’ needs best be met. Lincolnwood School District 74 has prepared an environment that is engaging and responsive to each child at each stage of development, while celebrating diversity and mutual respect among their community of learners. The staff recognizes the benefit of a strong home-school connection. Parents are welcomed partners and are encouraged to volunteer with school activities. It is this connection that is essential for positive behavior and student success. Partnering with parents, the District staff works to make school fun, safe and challenging. For more information, visit lincoln.sd74.org.

OUR NEIGHBORHOODS

L

incolnwood is known throughout the Chicago area for its great residential neighborhoods and strong housing values. With a mature canopy of trees setting the stage, most of the village’s housing is composed of a varied and eclectic style of single-family brick homes with private yards. Thirteen neighborhood parks add to the serenity of its neighborhoods. As testament to Lincolnwood’s excellent quality of life, about one-third of residents have lived in their Lincolnwood home for more than 20 years. It is not uncommon for children once raised in Lincolnwood to return to the community to raise their own families. Residents from all backgrounds call

Lincolnwood home, where diversity is not only respected, but is celebrated. Sponsored by the Human Relations Commission, each year a community-wide Fourth of July picnic is held, followed closely by the annual Lincolnwood Fest community celebration. The arrival of winter means residents of the Towers neighborhood in the village bring the magic of the holiday season alive with grand displays of holiday lights and decorations. It has become known for some of the best displays found anywhere in the Chicago region. Support for the arts in Lincolnwood is strong, with its very own Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra and a continuous ongoing visual art

exhibit by area artists in village hall. Led by a group of residents, a sculpture program has been initiated, bringing sculptures to various sites in the community. Lincolnwood means great neighborhoods, great community – and it is a great place to live! – Source: Lincolnwood Community Development Department

Lincolnwood is where Chicago’s North Side meets the North Shore. Lincolnwood is home to a dynamic blend of businesses from L. Woods Tap & Pine Lodge, one of the region’s most well-recognized restaurants, to regional draws such as the Lincolnwood Town Center Mall, which features such prominent retailers as Carson Pirie Scott and Kohl’s department stores. Lincolnwood is also the proud home of the many dealerships of Grossinger Auto and Loeber Motors. Lincolnwood has a strong business sector, with employment in the village roughly equal to the village’s resident population. Diverse manufacturing in Lincolnwood includes auto parts, tool and die shops, plastic and printing operations and food processing. There are many advantages to locating a business within Lincolnwood, including a prestigious company address, and access to local,

regional and national markets through proximity to highways, railways and airports. Lincolnwood encourages business visibility and active participation in the community.

PUBLIC WORKS

T

he Lincolnwood Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining the village’s streets, vehicles, parks, public buildings, trees, alleys, water system, sewer system and more. The department is organized into five divisions including administration, vehicle maintenance, parks & building maintenance, streets maintenance, and water and sewer maintenance. All divisions work together on the snow & ice control program to ensure clean and safe roadways during the winter season. In addition to maintaining the existing infrastructure, the public works department manages the construction of capital improvements. Major projects in 2018 will include:

TOUHY AVENUE OVERPASS Construction of the Touhy Avenue overpass began in fall 2017 and is expected to be complete in summer 2018. When complete, this new bridge will provide a safe means for pedestrians and cyclists to cross Touhy Avenue while using the Valley Line Trail. This multi-use recreation path, which opened in 2016, connects existing paths in Chicago and Skokie. The bridge is intended to be a gateway feature for the community and will include a three-span, corten steel bridge structure,

decorative lighting and landscaping. Additionally, the bridge will include a sign that reads “Village of Lincolnwood” on the center span.

STREET LIGHT INSTALLATION

New street lighting is planned to be installed along Devon Avenue between Lincoln and Longmeadow Avenues. The new lights will match existing poles that have been installed throughout the village’s arterial routes since 2010. Additionally, lights along Cicero Avenue and McCormick Boulevard will be retrofitted with LED fixtures. LED fixtures consume less electricity and last longer than the existing metal halide bulbs. When the street lights that will be retrofitted were installed in 2010, LED fixtures were not allowed on routes controlled by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Since then, the village has installed LED fixtures on Pratt, Touhy, Lincoln and Crawford Avenues as well as on McCormick Boulevard south of North Shore Avenue. With the completion of this project, new street lights will have been installed on all of the arterial streets throughout the village. Construction of the lighting is expected to be complete in the autumn.

PUBLIC WORKS YARD EXPANSION Northeast Parkway was constructed in the early part of the last decade, which connected Lawndale Avenue to McCormick Boulevard, providing another means of access to the Northeast Industrial District across the, now former, Union Pacific right-of-way. In 2007, the village built out the existing public works yard with the intention of expanding onto the Union Pacific right-of-way after the land was purchased in 2015 for the construction of a multi-use recreation path. This year the village will complete the project, which will include extending the existing brick wall, constructing permanent material storage bin and constructing a wall and fence around the water tower across the street from the back of the public works yard on Central Park Avenue.

FOR MORE INFORMATION If you have questions regarding the services provided by the Lincolnwood Public Works Department or the projects described above, call (847) 675‑0888 or visit the village’s website at www.lincolnwoodil.org. The public works department at 7001 N. Lawndale Ave. is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
