“Village ordinances regarding solicitation and trespass to land both require notice from the owner or occupant that such activity is prohibited.  Accordingly, the Police Department strongly recommends that all residents conspicuously post written notice (i.e. a sign) at the main entrance to their property, such as, but certainly not limited to, on a mailbox post or fire grid address sign post. To encourage and assist residents in this effort, the Department has purchased a supply of reflective aluminum signs which are available for sale at the Department’s cost: $9.30 per sign.

Signs may be purchased during normal business hours (Monday – Friday  8:00 AM to 4:00 PM) via check or credit card (no cash).  For the fastest and most convenient service, consider pre-paying via the Village’s Illinois ePay webpage and then pick up your sign.”

A great way to see the fall colors is to ride your bike, which allows you to be outside and travel a good distance to catch a lot of scenery. So where should you go? Options abound in the suburbs.

Poplar Creek Trail link to Elgin: The Poplar Creek Trail between Hoffman Estates and Streamwood, and between Barrington Road and the west side of Route 59, will show some fall colors in spots, and now the trail links to Elgin via a new connection down forested Shoe Factory Road. That extends from Route 59 to the CN railroad tracks, at which point you could ride west through Elgin to the Fox River Trail (below).

Moraine Hills State Park: In this forested state park along River Road just east of the Fox River in McHenry and west of Island Lake, you’ll find a collection of trails, and the paved bike trail seen just off River Road is being extended to connect to Lily Lake Road. Ride this trail or the roads within the park surrounded by trees and their fall colors.

Raceway Woods: The Chicago Area Mountain Bikers organization has developed mountain biking trails in Kane County’s portion of this forest preserve by the old Meadowsdale Speedway in Carpentersville. In 2019, the group reached an agreement with Dundee Township to expand the trails. Now there are about 5 miles in this pretty preserve between the Fox River and Route 31. More at cambr.org.

Barrington Hills: A tree and biking-road paradise. Check out Spring Creek Road. Getting there is wonderful, too, but residents ask that you stay single file, please.

“The Barrington Hills Police Department is investigating a ruse burglary which occurred yesterday at a residence on Route 62 east of Route 25. In this incident, the resident was contacted by a subject at her front door claiming to be with Commonwealth Edison and explaining that he needed to test the water.

Residents should be extremely wary of all unexpected visitors, especially those purporting to be contractors, utility workers, or new neighbors and attempting to enter a home or draw attention or residents away from the home. Regardless how credible a story may sound or how genuine a person may seem, never let a stranger in your home or allow them to draw you outside your home. Residents are strongly encouraged to call 911 to report any suspicious activity or for police assistance in determining the authenticity of an uninvited visitor. Victims often tell officers that despite feeling that a situation felt off, they didn’t call out of concern of being bothersome.

Should that ever be the case, please do bother us – we are here to help!”
