FutureThe following was posted to the Village website today:

“The Forest Preserve District of Cook County (FPDCC) hosted an open house on Tuesday, June 14th regarding Horizon Farm, the area’s newest forest preserve.  The evening began with a presentation by the Preserves reviewing the planning efforts underway that have included input from community stakeholders.

FPDCC is working hard to preserve and restore vital natural areas that are especially important to native grassland birds. The short-term plan presented involves opening several trails on the property in the fall of this year.  There will be some gravel trails and mowed grass trails, in line with the Forest Preserves’ mission of all trails being open to everyone (dog walkers, equestrians, bikes, etc).

A Barrington Hills resident commented on how happy she was with the work done to remove the derelict buildings on the property, restoring it to natural space.

The Forest Preserves District of Cook County is seeking input from residents on how they would like to see the property used as they continue to plan for the opening of the trails and future uses of the property. Please see the current draft maps below and send any feedback to Planning@cookcountyil.gov.”

The Horizon Farm 2022 opening plan can be viewed and downloaded here.  The future plan ideas can be found here.

Big Red 6

The Barrington Hills Chronicle (a Riding Club of Barrington Hills splinter group), posted what follows on Wednesday:

“The Riding Club of Barrington Hills is inviting all volunteers this Saturday, May 14th, to a roadside clean-up campaign on Route 62 (Algonquin Road). A meeting at the the Riding Center on Bateman Road will start at 8:30am (this Saturday, May 14th), or feel free to join whenever it is convenient for you. Every Saturday in May is the clean-up plan.”

In addition, three additional events are taking place tomorrow:

These activities are occurring at the same time tomorrow morning, primarily along Bateman, Algonquin, Brinker, and County Line Roads.

Readers are encouraged to exercise extreme caution when driving in these areas. On any given day, the Village has two patrol people covering the entire Village, and even with additional resources allocated, they hopefully will not be overwhelmed.
