Tollway accepting comments
on landscape policy
DOWNERS GROVE — The Illinois Tollway Board’s Strategic Planning Committee is considering a new landscape policy to address requests for removal and trimming of trees and vegetation on tollway property.
The proposed policy is available for review at www.illinoistollway.com. Public comments may be provided via email, U.S. mail or in person at an upcoming committee meeting. All comments will be posted on the website.
The policy would create guidelines for municipalities and businesses along the tollway system to request trimming or removal of trees on tollway property to clear obstructions or undesirable vegetation.
The public comment period will extend through Feb. 1.
