The Village of Lakemoor has passed an ordinance easing overnight parking restrictions on Village streets in certain areas. The easing of overnight parking restriction will affect Lakemoor Farms and the Lily Lake Subdivisions. The Village Board acted on this issue brought forth by several requests by residents with growing family members who now are of driving age. In addition, the Village Board took this opportunity to address some of the parking and traffic issues with our highly successful Lakemoor Fest by the installation of permanent parking restriction signs.

One of the most important things that you can have as part of your emergency safety kit is a weather radio. The National Weather Service provides the forecasts and severe weather alerts that you hear on it. With an all hazards weather radio, you not only get the latest severe weather information, but it lets you know about environmental and public safety emergencies like amber alerts and chemical spills. A great reason to have one of these radios is the battery backup. That means if severe weather strikes and the power goes out, it may be the only way for you to find out the latest weather information. Another great thing about this particular radio is that you can program it for just the county you live in or the county you live in plus all of the surrounding counties.

One of the Village's goal is to create a network of interconnected open space, woodlands, water resources, high quality agricultural land and other natural resources, which are important elements to Lakemoor and provide multiple benefits to its residents. In an effort to achieve this goal, the Village recent acquired 10 acres (7 acres of water + 3 acres of land) at the northwest corner of Lilly Lake. This acquisition will protect open space, expanding the public's access around the lake, and preserve the existing Romanesque tower, which is a historic landmark feature for the Village.
The Village also acquired, at county auction, three parcels of land that are contiguous to Peterson Park. Peterson Park is a 5.5 acre park that is located at the end of Lakeview Drive. Over the next year the Village will begin the process of developing a plan to make the park more accessible and function.
