INDIAN HEAD PARK d www.indianheadpark-il.gov

R

ich with historic heritage, green spaces and open residential settings, the Village of Indian Head Park is a predominantly residential community located at the convergence of I- 55 (Stevenson) and I-294 (Tri-State). Located conveniently to downtown, airports and shopping, with excellent schools and municipal services our residents enjoy easy access to almost any destination. The Village was named and incorporated appropriately as the Village of Indian Head Park in 1959. Its origins trace back to the Potawatomie Indians and as part of a stagecoach route that ran from Chicago to Ottawa at the Illinois River. The residence of Robert Vial, one of the first settlers to this area, was a strategic location along this route where many travelers stopped while they switched horses, including Potawatomi Chief Shabbona, an important liaison between the settlers and Native Americans. Later it was the site of the area Post Office and first Cook County Democratic convention in 1836. In 1843, the Vial family started the first Congregation Church of Lyonsville in a schoolhouse on Joliet Road across from its current location. In 1858 the building that is now the Lyonsville Congregational Church was dedicated. More recent history included the location of several 18-hole golf courses with rolling hills and trees that promoted an early focus on open green spaces and large residential lots. The original development of what is now Indian Head Park began in 1946 with the development of 20 lots west of Wolf Road by developer Norman Higby. Nineteen families are credited with being the original owners in Higby’s development. The original “Old Town” was developed starting in the 1950s, followed by the development of the initial condo and townhome developments in the 1970s and 80s of Acacia, Wilshire Green, Flagg Creek and Indian Ridge, and newer developments in the 1990s including Ashbrook, Indian Wood Townhomes, Chestnut on the Green and others. With a population of just under 4,000, Indian Head Park is predominantly a residential community that includes service, retail, and commercial areas. The area around Joliet Road serves as our retail corridor, with many options for eating, shopping, and wellness with several retailers specializing in hair, beauty, and spa services. Wolf’s Head Inn and Willow Hill Restaurant are two favorite destinations for our residents for friendly

conversation and great food. Our commercial section is mostly south of Joliet Road and borders the Tri-State Tollway. Our residents have excellent public school districts serving our Community with high achieving academic track records and strong parental and community involvement – K-8 students just north of Joliet Road attend Highlands School (District 106), while K-8 students just south of Tecumseh Road attend Pleasantdale School (District 107). Our young adults have access to the highly-rated Lyons Township High School (District 204), and there are also parochial options convenient to our location for both elementary, middle and high school. Residents of Indian Head Park are offered municipal public works services including snow removal and water (some residents are served by Highlands Sanitary District), and a Village Police Department that provides

public safety services. The Pleasantview Fire Protection District serves our community for paramedic and fire emergencies, with station locations one just to our north on Plainfield Road and another south on Wolf Road. Indian Head Park has several public parks with playgrounds, and a historic Community Center - Blackhawk Park, Sacajawea Park, and the Heritage Center. Additionally, part of our Village is served by the Pleasantdale Park District, which provides recreational programs for all ages and access to the Flagg Creek Golf course. Indian Head Park strives to maintain an atmosphere of natural beauty balanced with neighborly caring and community involvement. With large lots, a designated “Tree City”, and an emphasis on green space, it is still “the best kept secret in Chicago” and a great place to live, work and play!e

WESTERN SPRINGS d www.wsprings.com

D

owntown Western Springs will be an economically sustainable center of community life, offering a charming and vibrant destination to meet daily and destination shopping and dining needs. The downtown will remain sensitive to the historic scale and character of Western Springs, while offering expanded opportunities to shop, live, work and play in a family friendly environment. The Village of Western Springs, a non-homerule community, was incorporated in 1886 and is approximately 16 miles west of the City of Chicago in Cook County. Western Springs is a small, stable, quiet community measuring 2.75 square miles bisected by the Burlington Northern Railroad. The Village Tower, which is located in the middle of town, is the symbol of Western Springs. It was built in 1892 and has served the Village in a variety of ways over the years. The Village is surrounded on three sides by incorporated municipalities and the fourth side is Bemis Woods, a Cook County Forest Preserve. In 2005 the Village annexed the last undeveloped parcel, Timber Trails, in adjacent unincorporated Cook County. It is a residential community with a small commercial district which serves the basic needs of the residents. The Village prides itself in and derives its charm from the quality and diversity of its homes. Distinctive single family housing, superior schools, and access to Chicago through the Burlington Northern rail line have established the Village as a stable, family-friendly community. The Village recognizes that its homes represent its greatest asset and has had a watchful eye on the market downturns that have impacted the economy since 2008, as property taxes are the single largest revenue source that supports general operations. Fortunately, the Village has not experienced the steep peaks and valleys of the recent housing market. The median home price rose approximately 10.4 percent in 2013, according to Zillow. There were 39 teardowns in 2014, compared to 26 in 2013. The Timber Trails subdivision continued to show growth with the addition of several new singlefamily and townhouse units. Available inventory sold briskly throughout the year and phase two is now ready for construction.

There are two elementary school districts and one high school district providing public education to Village residents. In addition, there is one private grade school.

Civic Establishments • The Village Club, located at the northeast corner of Chestnut Street and Lawn Avenue, provides social gatherings and sports events and is still an active social club. • The Theatre of Western Springs was founded in 1929 and in 1946 the Children’s Theatre of Western Springs was founded. Producing 7 adult productions, 4 student productions and a holiday show each year, this theatre is a place where a community of all ages comes together to train for, explore and demonstrate the art of live theater. The Theatre of Western Springs is internationally recognized for its artistic excellence and its position of respect in Chicago’s creative community. • Thomas Ford Memorial Library opened in 1932.

• The Grand Avenue Community Center (Chestnut and Grand) is the oldest stone public building still standing in Western Springs. The community center is home to the Senior Center, day care center and recreational activities. • The Western Springs Historical Society is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to preserving and sharing the village’s rich history with past, present, and future residents. The Society operates a free museum in the village’s historic water tower.e

Another local oasis, Imperial Oak Brewery, located directly across from the Village Metra Lot, has become a favorite destination for commuters and bicycle enthusiasts. Local taverns include C.C’s Grove Inn and The Friendly Tap. Another Archer Avenue mainstay is The Illinois Billiards Club/Bonnie’s Dining and Banquets, which has thrived for more than 50 years, and Spring Forest Deli, which continues to be a regional lunchtime draw.

Long-established homes find themselves surrounded by The Cook County Forest Preserves in the southern area of the Village. Portions of the Village are served by Willow Springs and Pleasantdale school districts and three high schools: Argo, Lyons Township and Stagg.

In addition, residents and visitors alike may enjoy biking and hiking along the I&M and the Centennial Trail System in Willow Springs. The Centennial Trail soon will be re-opened featuring elevated landscape. Additional plans include the installation of a Mountain Bike Trail along Cal-Sag Channel.

Willow Springs recently upgraded its parks system which included the installation of a splash pad at Lions Park. The Village has gained notoriety for its highly successful Benefit Car Show which features live music

The Village is also a proud supporter of another popular local event, “A River Thru History,” an annual early-American settler reenactment held at Columbia Woods along the Canal.e

Winter fun can be found indoors and out. Join us for holiday traditions, sledding, ice-skating, cross-country skiing and that special table close to a fireplace. Spring, with beautiful flowers, egg hunts and festivals of roses, is also a great time to snag some sale items in local shops and national brand stores.

The La Grange Area Historical Society, open on the last Sunday of every month, keeps alive the history of early “suburbanites” who settled here. Also visit the Flagg Creek Heritage Society, where a museum and historic home at the Pleasant Dale Park District welcome visitors to learn more about area history. Brookfield Zoo is just 10 minutes from La Grange Park. Within the 216-acre park, there are 416 species and thousands of animals in a myriad of settings. The zoo’s extensive programs and exhibits will captivate you. Though you can picnic on the grounds, you never have to bring something to eat as the zoo has many food services, restaurants and snack options. Visit Harley Davidson in Countryside and ride like the wind down historic Route 66 which runs through the heart of the west suburban community. Stay and play at the Holiday Inn & William Tell Chicago SW Countryside Banquets and Conference Center and enjoy the pool, sauna, steam room and whirlpool, making it a top choice for families. Also enjoy a free shuttle within a 5-mile radius to all of the area’s top attractions!

PARKS & RECREATION

T

he western suburbs offer recreation opportunities for those who want to spend a day in the great outdoors or a few minutes to enjoy a single option. From our many choices, you might choose to walk on one of the surfaced trails in a forest preserve, ride a bicycle on a pathway that twists and turns in a heavily forested park or canoe on a waterway or lake. There is so much to check out; you will need a few visits.

It is very common to see wildlife as you drive around our communities. Having so many forest preserve acres and nature centers like Wolf Road Prairie (a very fine birding site) and the Little Red School House (they love to teach kids and adults about the world of nature that surrounds us all), it is easy to become spoiled. The Wolf Road Prairie shows you what our grasslands were like before the settlers arrived and development followed.

Salt Creek, I&M Canal and “Centennial Trails” are ideal if you want scenic routes, grassy picnic areas or wide-open exercise spaces. Make it a point to check out our many fishing lakes and ponds including Bullfrog Lake, Belly Deep Slough, Cermak Quarry, Horsetail Lake, Ida Lake, Joe’s Pond, Maple Lake or Papoose Lake. You’ll be happy you brought a camera to record the beauty that defines this area.

The West Suburban area’s park districts also have many events, activities and holiday destinations. Choose from a brisk game of tennis, a pick-up game of basketball, a jog around the track or softer activities with your children or grandchildren in a tot lot. Sometimes doing very little is exactly what the doctor ordered, so go ahead and relax.e

Partnering to Enhance Community Well-Being

Community Concern Spotlight: When it comes to raising mental health awareness, there’s strength in numbers.

T

hat’s the impetus behind the development and west suburban roll out of a special nationally recognized program designed to help trained individuals throughout the community spot the signs of mental illness and take steps to help. In cooperation with the Rotary Club of LaGrange, DuPage Community Foundation, Illinois Children’s Health Foundation, and the Lyons and Proviso Townships Mental Health Commissions, the Community Memorial Foundation in 2014 began offering an 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course led by trained community members, each with 40 hours of instruction in common mental health challenges. “It’s surprising for many to learn how common mental illness is and how many friends, family members and neighbors may face a mental health challenge in their lifetime,” says Cathy Kokontis, a licensed clinical social worker, therapist, and youth initiative coordinator at Nazareth Academy, who serves as one of 29 National Council on Behavioral Health trained community instructors for the Mental Health First Aid program. According to program sponsors, two versions of the course are offered. Adult Mental Health First Aid explores how to help an adult who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crises until appropriate professional help arrives. The training helps participants identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse disorders. Youth Mental Health First Aid equips caring adults with the knowledge they need to spots signs of mental illness in young people and to help them get proper treatment. “Mental illness is more common than most people realize,” says Kokontis, who explains that Mental Health First Aid is help offered to a person experiencing a mental health crises and given until appropriate professional help is secured. The Youth Mental Health First Aid program is designed to teach neighbors, parents, teachers, and older peers how to help a youth or teen experiencing a mental health of substance abuse challenge or who is in crisis. The course discusses mental health challenges for youth,

18 ILHODCD15 design.indd 18

reviews typical adolescent development, and provides guidance through action plans for crises and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance abuse, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders including AD/HD and eating disorders. Targeting community groups, church members and those on the front lines of community service, Kokontis says training programs are already in place for local police officers, government, library and park district workers, and staff at several parochial schools including Nazareth Academy, St. Cletus, Divine Infant, St. Francis Xavier and St. John of the Cross. “The goal is to raise awareness, make mental health first aid training available throughout the community, and help participants understand there is something we can all do to help,” explains Kokontis, who is among the first group of Mental Health First Aid instructors to complete training, representing a wide cross section of organizations including Pillars, Aging Care Connections, the Hinsdale Police department, Mujeres Latinas en Accion, Arab American Family Services, BEDS Plus Care., Inc., Narareth Academy, Robert Crown Center for Health Education, the LeaderShop, All Our Children’s Advocacy Center, Catholic Charities, NAMI Metro Suburban and NAMI DuPage. Designed to function like a traditional first aid class, it is hoped the program will help reduce the stigma of mental illness by encouraging recognition, awareness and the same need for treatment as manifested by physical illness and complaints. “As evidenced by this program, much can be accomplished through community partnership and the WSCCI is proud to be a regional partner in this initiative,” says Ken Grunke, West Suburban Chamber of Commerce & Industry executive director. According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), mental illness is believed to impact 20 percent of adults and children, nearly 57.7 million Americans, yet only one in five receive a diagnosis and treatment. Conditions like depression, anxiety, and eating disorders can lead to substance abuse, relationship issues, failure in schools, loss of employment, and even death. Suicide is the third leading cause of death in those between the ages of 10 and 24, and 90 percent of children and teens who commit suicide suffer from a mental illness.

The unit’s highlight is a fully built model apartment that is used as a training facility by day and for patients preparing to transition back to home at night. Though health care is changing, the hospital is committed to adapting its services to fit the community’s needs for today, tomorrow and in the years to come.e

Adventist LaGrange Since admitting its first patient in 1955, Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital has built a strong, proud history within the community. From a $10 million Emergency Department expansion to the opening of a new cancer institute, it’s an exciting time for the hospital. One of the most important parts of a community hospital is its Emergency Department, and the ED expansion project will help streamline admissions and decrease wait times to enhance the patient experience. There will be 23 new private patient exam rooms and a spacious new lobby and family waiting area.

Set to open in 2016, the new Adventist Cancer Institute and Outpatient Center will provide comprehensive cancer care to patients throughout their journey – from diagnosis to treatment to recovery. Located between Adventist La Grange Memorial and Adventist Hinsdale Hospitals near I-294, the new facility will allow patients to visit their doctor, have lab work performed and receive chemotherapy and radiation treatments in one location, saving time and stress.

LIBRARIES “You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” – Dr. Seuss

F

rom books to technology, West Suburban residents have access to a plethora of resources and services at libraries including the LaGrange Park Public Library, Hodgkin’s Library, LaGrange Public Library and the Thomas Ford Memorial Library, Western Springs. Celebrating a historic 40th anniversary this year, the LaGrange Park Public Library has come a long way since 1975 when the Suburban Library System’s travelling bookmobile made several weekly stops within the Village. “Our library today is the single central connection for everyone in the village, serving as curator of the community’s base of knowledge and opportunities for enrichment,” says Lynn Elam, interim director. “Trustees, staff and volunteers are intentionally focused on delivering education and skills needed for high quality of life in the 21st century through reading, viewing, listening and learning.” In 1976, the first library was housed in a cozy 5,400-square-foot space in the basement of School District 102’s old Forest Road School. Throughout the 1980s, patrons fondly recall the children’s story hour and browsing among the select 4,600 book collection. A 1987 referendum provided funding for the current three-story, 21,000-square-foot library building which was completed and opened in November, 1989. With today’s circulation of 152,613 items and an additional eBook circulation of 6,973, the LaGrange Park Public Library has become an epicenter of resources with 76,883 books, 24,319 audio items, 3,509 audio downloadable titles, 6,467 videos and DVDs, 172 periodical subscriptions, 31 licensed databases and 22,820 eBook titles. j

The recently renovated first floor features comfortable seating and cozy lounge-style seating with built in power for computers and mobile devices. Roll-out of updated technology in December includes 26 new laptop computers which replace former desktop computers and bulky computer workstations. Made possible by a special $50,000 legislative grant, the computers run the latest versions of Microsoft Windows, the newest Microsoft Office Suites, and boast touchscreen capabilities. According to Gabe Oppenheim, IT director, this effectively doubles Internet and computing capabilities for the library’s 8,900 cardholders and visitors. Also new this spring is an upgraded new online catalog. After 10 years with the current catalog, LaGrange Park Public Library and 76 SWAN libraries will offer a new generation Enterprise catalog with access to downloadable media like eBooks and audiobooks and have the potential to search online reference sources. Patrons may search the library’s physical and digital materials with one click, and initiate eBook downloads from within the catalog.e

Quick Reference:
