New Redlight Cameras
In our effort to improve public and driver safety throughout the community, the Village of Glendale Heights, after careful consideration and detailed analysis, has started construction to install a new and cutting edge photo-enforcement program, more commonly known as a 'Red Light Camera' program. The camera systems will be located at the intersection of North Avenue and Glen Ellyn Road (eastbound and westbound). Implementation of this type of program will reduce possible fatalities and severe personal injury due to driver carelessness and/or reckless disregard for the law. Red Light Cameras are only a cost to those who break the law so please respect the rules of the road. Thank you for helping to keep our roadways safe by remembering to Choose Safety. Stop on Red.

What's that horn sound during storms?
The Village has a weather warning system called Thor Guard set up in our parks and outdoor facilities like Glendale Lakes Golf Club. Thor Guard detects lighting strikes within a specific radius to indicate if parks need to be cleared. One long siren blast indicates conditions are "right" for lightning to form. It is advised at this time that all outdoor activities be stopped and participants move to a safe location. The sounded alert also includes flashing lights, which will continue to flash throughout the unsafe conditions. The "All Clear" alert will be 3 short siren blasts and the lights will stop flashing. In order to conduct an "All Clear", there must be a MINIMUM of 10 minutes with no additional lightning charges detected. For more information on this program, please contact the Sports Hub at 630.260.6060.
