[ARCHIVED] Village Discusses Alley Address Ordinance

Westmont, Illinois
Date Issued: July 20, 2018

At the July 19 Westmont Community Development Committee Meeting, the Village discussed the creation of an ordinance requiring businesses and residences to post their addresses so that they are visible from the alley.

“This concept is being considered for both safety and maintenance issues,” said Jason Vitell, Westmont Building Commissioner.  “In regards to safety, being able to see property addresses is very important so that emergency services can more quickly respond to a call.”  Vitell added, “Additionally, when residents and business owners contact the village regarding an alley-related maintenance issue, it can be reported more accurately and staff can better find the problem that needs to be resolved.  Many communities already have a similar program in place.”

The Village will review and consider the recommendation in the near future including the timeframe for implementation.  For more information, call the Community Development main line at 630-981-6250 or contact Joey Jeraminas, Code Enforcement Division, at 630-981-6261 or
