Fall is roadwork season, even in Knollwood this year

We want to pass along the following message we received this week from Shields Township Highway Commissioner Scott Anderson. Scott's contact information is given below if you want to contact him with any questions. We've also created a map to help visualize the areas he intends to work on; click on the map to see a larger version.

Some perspective on safety in Knollwood

Our public safety meeting last night was well attended and very informative. The good news: Knollwood is just as safe as most communities across Lake County. But there are always things we can do to keep our property and our neighborhood safer.

The meeting opened with a few comments from our County Board member, Mike Rummel. He encouraged residents to call on him as a liaison to county government. He can be reached at or by phone at 847-234-8858 (home) or 312-617-7547 (cell).

Community public safety meeting set for Thursday, October 29

Thursday, October 29, 2015, 7:00 pm
Knollwood Fire Station, 14 Skokie Road

There's been a rash of burglaries in the last few weeks affecting homes in Knollwood, Lake Forest, and Lake Bluff, and naturally we're hearing a lot of concern from our residents. We're holding a public meeting on Thursday, October 29, 2015, to give people a chance to learn more. The speaker will be Deputy Roman Buchberger of the Lake County Sheriff's Community Service Division.

Work begins at Hill Top

It's been years in the making—literally—but finally there's been some construction (actually, demolition) activity at the site of the former Hill Top nursing facility on Waukegan Road between Muir and Atkinson Roads. The property was annexed by the Village of Green Oaks last year and is being developed under their jurisdiction.
