What's going on in our Villages
  
 
 
The Holiday Season is upon us...So much to do, so little time. There is a lot going on not only in our lives but in our Villages.
Katie Cory , owner of Skändal, showcasing the hottest Scandinavian style apparel, accessories and gifts from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, and The Netherlands, 907 Green Bay Road, Hubbard Woods, also serving on the Business Community Development Commission for the Village of Winnetka prepared the following Village of Winnetka Update, with information about Northfield too.  Thank you Katie!
 
DOWNTOWN MASTER PLAN ...should be familiar to you. The Winnetka Downtown Master Plan will evaluate and consider improvements to the primary business districts. In order to plan for future opportunities within Winnetka's business district, the Teska group was hired as the consulting team for this project.  They have prepared an existing conditions report and presented a market analysis of Winnetka at this past Monday November 30th meeting. Please open this important website to get further information on what is being considered for YOUR business district: www.winnetkadowntownplan.com  Your input is an essential part of this project.
