Patriot Day Remembrance 

Please join the Palatine Fire and Police Departments on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 as we host a memorial ceremony to honor the sacrifices of those that lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The ceremony will be held at the Palatine Firefighters Memorial at the corner of N. Brockway and W. Slade St. The ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. and will last for approximately one hour.


Sidewalk Maintenance Program

As part of the Village's annual sidewalk maintenance program, deteriorated sidewalks are being replaced in the area south of Illinois Avenue from Plum Grove Road to Quentin Road and from Wood Street south to Euclid 
Avenue between Quentin and Roselle Roads. Designated sidewalks are removed and the new concrete is typically poured within 48 hours. The sidewalk is reopened after the new concrete has cured, which is usually within three days.

For more information about this public improvement project, please contact the Public Works Department at (847)705-5200.

Palatine Bike Path Construction to Begin on Harper's West Side

The Village of Palatine/IDOT will be constructing a multi-use path on the west side of the college. This path will connect to the path on the east side of campus, making it possible for you to walk, run or bike around the entire campus. It will also connect to the Palatine bike trail system to the north and the Paul Douglas path that crosses the expressway at Roselle Rd to the south. Construction will begin September 3 and continue through mid-October. During this time, Harper College’s Roselle Rd. entrance will remain open, though the right turn lane will be closed.
