Village of Wheeling to Dedicate Phyllis Harmon Path

Wheeling, Illinois – On Friday, October 11, the Village of Wheeling will dedicate a newlyconstructed path along Dundee Road between the Des Plaines River and the overpass of the Tri-State Tollway.

The path addresses a critical gap in the area’s pedestrian network: a three-quarter-mile section of Dundee Road that pedestrians could only traverse along a well-worn six-inch-wide dirt path. Cyclists passing through this stretch had to choose between riding in the mud and braving the 50- mile-per-hour traffic on the road.

The new path is being named in honor of Phyllis Harmon, a nationally-prominent bicyclist and former Wheeling resident credited with helping to renew the status of cycling as a sport, a social activity, and a practical means of transportation.

The completion of the Phyllis Harmon Path closes the only remaining gap in a 12.5-mile pedestrian thoroughfare that runs along the south side of Dundee Road from Illinois Route 53 in Arlington Heights to Green Bay Road in Glencoe. Dundee Road is now the only street south of Half Day Road that permits a direct and uninterrupted pedestrian crossing of the full Des Plaines River area, which includes Milwaukee Avenue / River Road, the river itself, adjacent Forest Preserve lands, and the tollway.

The Phyllis Harmon Path also helps realize Dundee Road’s long-recognized potential as a critical east-west corridor that will allow pedestrians and bicyclists throughout northwest Chicagoland greatly improved access to regional amenities such as the Skokie Lagoons, the Chicago Botanic Garden, and the Green Bay Trail.

Notably, the path also provides a connection to the 53-mile Des Plaines River Trail, which runs from North Avenue in River Grove to the Wisconsin border, and is popularly used for hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and other recreational activities.

The Phyllis Harmon Path is one of the few entry points to the Des Plaines River Trail that can be accessed by bicycle, and is the southern entry point to the longest stretch of the trail with no difficult street crossings (32 miles). The path will soon connect to a new pedestrian crossing signal at Portwine Road that will extend the segment of trail without a difficult street crossing an additional four miles south to Milwaukee Avenue.

Engineering and construction costs for the path are approximately $600,000, substantially below the initial estimate of $1.26 million. Eighty percent of project expenses were federally funded through an Illinois Transportation Enhancement Program grant awarded in October of 2010 and administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The length of the path totals 1.16 miles: 4,550 feet on the south side of Dundee Road, as well as 1,550 feet on the north side, extending from the Potawatomi Woods access road to Portwine Road. Project construction began in late July of 2013, and completion is anticipated by the end of September.

“This is a terrific example of the Village using a creative approach to identify and solve a problem,” Wheeling Village President Dean Argiris said. “It’s a little stretch of pavement built at a small expense, and it’s going to make a real difference in the quality of people’s lives. Beyond the recreational benefit, this path will provide a lot of people on both sides of the river with another practical transportation option. And that benefits everybody who commutes along Dundee, whether on foot, on a bike, or in a car.”

The path will be dedicated in honor of Phyllis Harmon in observance her many distinguished contributions to the sport and pastime of cycling. Harmon has been widely credited with reestablishing the League of American Wheelmen (now the League of American Bicyclists) in the years following World War II. Through her advisory role with the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation (now the Active Transportation Alliance) and her service on the Illinois Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee, she has helped to reshape transportation policy and transform streetscapes throughout Illinois.

In recognition of her efforts Ms. Harmon has received the Paul Dudley White Award from the American Heart Association, and has been inducted into both the Chicagoland Bicycling Federation Hall of Fame and the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame.

Although currently living in Florida, where she still bicycles regularly at the age of 96, Ms. Harmon is a native Chicagoan and a longtime resident of Northern Illinois who moved to Wheeling in 1969. In 1970 Ms. Harmon founded the Wheeling Wheelmen cycling club, which remains active as a social, recreational, and advocacy organization.

“Phyllis Harmon has spent a lifetime making connections and removing barriers to promote the health and civic engagement of people here in Wheeling and throughout the country,” Argiris said. “It’s the Village’s privilege to name this path in her honor as a fitting commemoration of her achievements.”

The Village has scheduled a dedication ceremony for 10:30 a.m. on Friday, October 11, to be held at the Potawatomi Woods picnic shelter just north of Dundee Road and east of Milwaukee Avenue. Ms. Harmon will be in attendance.

On-Duty Death of Wheeling Police Officer Shamekia Goodwin-Badger *160

On Saturday, July 27, 2013, Wheeling Police Department Officer Shamekia Goodwin-Badger (age 33) died at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.  Wheeling Fire Department personnel transported Officer Badger to Lutheran General Hospital on Thursday, July 25, 2013, after she became ill while participating in a training session at the Wheeling Police Department. Even with the heroic efforts of the Wheeling Fire Department paramedics and emergency room staff Officer Badger was unable to recover.

Officer Badger began her career with the Wheeling Police Department on May 27, 2008, after serving with the Hawthorn Woods, IL Police Department for four years. In addition, Officer Badger was a decorated United States Army veteran having faithfully served her country in Operation Enduring Freedom in Kuwait and Iraq.

The loss of Officer Badger has deeply shaken all members of the Wheeling Police Department. She was an officer who could handle any situation, displaying a calm, firm demeanor, but also one that was compassionate and understanding. Officer Badger worked with the midnight shift where she utilized her skills as a youth officer and evidence technician to assist those she worked with. Officer Badger was someone very special to the members of the police department -- no matter what was happening in one’s life, you could always go to her for a word of encouragement and a guaranteed smile.

Officer Badger enjoyed serving and protecting the residents of the Village of Wheeling, but outside of work, Officer Badger was a mother who dearly loved her 13-year-old daughter. Spending time with her daughter was the most important part of her life.

Village flags will fly at half-staff in remembrance of Officer Badger and purple bunting will drape the entrances of the department.

A wake/memorial service will be held at Kolssak Funeral Home, 189 S. Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling on July 31, 2013 from 3:00pm until 8:00pm.  In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been created for Officer Badger’s daughter. Donations/checks may be written to the Wheeling Police Benevolent and are being accepted at 1 Community Blvd. Wheeling, Il. 60090.

Services will be held at a later date in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida where Officer Badger will be laid to rest in her home state.

Village of Wheeling & Neighboring Communities Enter Into Agreement with Integrys Energy Services

WHEELING, IL – The Villages of Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire, Long Grove, Palatine, Vernon Hills, and Wheeling have entered into an agreement with Integrys Energy Services, Inc. to provide electric supply services which will save eligible customers more than 42% off their current electric supply. The price reduction refers to the electricity supply portion of the bill only, not the cost of delivery.

The municipalities began working together in 2011 and created a consortium in order to pool their resources and buying power, making themselves one of the largest consortium groups in the State. The consortium worked with Mark Pruitt representing Intelligent Power Partners as their consultant. The consortium secured a rate of 4.775 cents per kilowatt hour compared to ComEd’sApril 2012 residential supply rate of 8.233* cents per kilowatt hour. In addition to a substantial savings on electricity supply costs, the Northwest Consortium’s new program will ensure that the fees paid by participants for electricity generation go to purchase renewable energy certificates from wind resources. “A renewable offering was important to all seven of the communities involved,” stated Jeff Braiman, Buffalo Grove Village President. “Residents should look forward to a not only lower electricity rates, but also knowing their payments for electricity supply service are helping fund renewable energy sources”.

“We look forward to providing electricity supply service to the Northwest Consortium communities and adding renewable energy certificates to our mix,” said Brian Bowe, Illinois Direct Mass Market Manager for Integrys Energy Services. “These are exciting times in the State of Illinois with so many communities moving forward with electric aggregation. Integrys is proud having been selected to supply the Northwest Consortium”.Eligible residents and small commercial customers will receive a letter from the Village and Integrys in the next two weeks describing the program. Individuals are recommended to be cautious of offers from other firms seeking to contract with customers. The Village recommends comparing the rate of service and all terms and conditions before signing a contract or agreement.

The Consortium’s aggregations are opt-out programs, such that eligible customers will become part of the Villages’ program automatically – no action is required unless an eligible customer desires to opt-out. Individuals who have expiring contracts with another supplier would be required to opt-into the Village program if they are interested. Individuals already served byIntegrys will receive information from Integrys on their ability to switch to the aggregation program’s favorable electric rate.

An early termination fee of $25 will apply if a customer leaves the program after the rescission period
which ends five business days before the switch to Integrys’ service is to occur.

The rate of electric supply will take effect after the first meter read after enrollment. The Village’s
agreement will extend through the last meter read date on or before June 30, 2013.

Further information about the program will be posted to the Village’s website by May 6, 2012.

*The current ComEd Basic Electric Service Rate in effect from October 1, 2011, through May 31,
2012, including the Purchased Electricity Supply Charge, Transmission Services Charge and the April
2012 Purchased Electricity Adjustment Charge.

Willow Road - Edens Ramp Closure Scheduled for November 3, 2010

WHEELING, IL – Two access ramps connecting the Edens Expressway and Willow Road will be closed for approximately one month starting Nov. 3, according to representatives from the Illinois Department of Transportation.
 
One on-ramp and one off-ramp will be closed as a result of bridge construction on Willow Road in Northfield.
 
Northbound traffic exiting the Edens onto westbound Willow Road will be detoured to the westbound off-ramp of Dundee Road and redirected to Willow via Waukegan Road.
 
Westbound Willow Road traffic to the southbound Edens will be detoured to continue west on Willow, then to turn north on Waukegan Road to Dundee and east on Dundee to the Edens Ramp.
 
Although these closures are expected to result in increased westbound traffic on Dundee Road east of Waukegan Road, the impact on traffic within Wheeling is expected to be slight.

Emerald Ash Borer Arrives in Wheeling

WHEELING, IL – On September 13, 2010, The Illinois Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of a very small number of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetles in the Village of Wheeling.  This is the first time the invasive insect species has been detected in Wheeling.
 
Two EAB beetles were discovered on Abbott Drive and Capitol Drive during an EAB trap survey performed by Village staff and Illinois Department of Agriculture personnel.  These traps were placed in parkway ash trees at various locations throughout Wheeling early this spring as part of the Village’s EAB management efforts at early detection.
 
While adult beetles were found, no evidence of infestation has been detected in ash trees anywhere in Wheeling.
 
“Like most Northern Illinois communities, the Village of Wheeling has been anticipating and preparing for the EAB’s arrival,” Wheeling Village Manager Jon Sfondilis said.  “Early detection is the key to an effective response.  While EAB is a serious concern, the Village has proven countermeasures in place that should greatly mitigate its impact on Wheeling.”
 
As part of its efforts to address the issue, Village staff plans to conduct an informational campaign to educate Wheeling residents and businesses about how to detect and respond to EAB.
 
The EAB is a small, metallic-green insect whose larvae feed underneath bark of the branches and trunks of ash trees, thereby cutting off the tree’s ability to transport nutrients.  Ash trees can be infested with EAB for a few years before demonstrating any signs of EAB infestation.
 
Symptoms of EAB include canopy dieback, D-shaped exit holes, woodpecker damage, shoots sprouting from the tree trunks, and
S-shaped larval galleries underneath the bark.
 
Village staff will respond to suspected sightings of EAB by Wheeling residents.  It is very important for area residents to be vigilant in inspecting their ash trees for this pest, Sfondilis said.
 
Wheeling residents who suspect they may have found adult or larval forms of this insect, or trees that are showing EAB symptoms, should contact the Village of Wheeling’s Public Works Department at (847) 279-6900.
