Community Information

La Grange Highlands Civic Association 
Lyons Township, Cook County, IL, USA

The La Grange Highlands is an unincorporated residential community located immediately south of the Village of La Grange and west of the City of Countryside. It is in Lyons Township, Cook County, IL. The Highlands covers an area of about 600 acres. It is one of the largest unincorporated areas in Cook County. The community received its name "Highlands" because of its high elevation. It is 690 ft. above sea level, 90 feet higher than Chicago's loop, and 20 ft. higher than the Village of La Grange. Most of the land in the area is developed. Highlands' homes are predominately situated on half acre lots and there are very few parcels of vacant lot remaining.
The association encourages residents to be good neighbors by observing zoning ordinances, street signs, and speed limits in the area, and as always, controlling their pets.

Sustainability Information

Reduce Reuse Recycle logo

REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE. These three actions are focused on reducing waste, whether through the conservation of raw materials and energy, or the reuse and recycling of products. Do your part by watching what you buy, supplying your own packaging, and carefully considering what you do with each item you purchase once it is no longer useful to you. There are also simple habits you can develop to help you consume less water and electricity. Being "green" saves you money and creates a sense of satisfaction from making environmentally friendly choices.

BRANCH PICK UP
Weather permitting, branches will be picked up whenever necessary. Branches should not exceed 4 inches in diameter, and should be put on the parkway, not protruding into the street, in an orderly fashion, with butt ends facing the street. Be sure that no other items are included in the branches, as these can result in injuries to the crew members or damage to equipment. Branch pick up is a service to our community, and should not include trees that have been cut down by professional tree services. Branch pickup begins mid-April (weather permitting) and ends after the first snow.  For questions, call the Highway Department @ 708-839-0051.
