Property Concerns:

Our Assistance
La Grange Highlands is an unincorporated residential community governed by the laws of Cook County. La Grange Highlands Civic Association (LGHCA), a volunteer organization, encourages residents to be good neighbors by observing building & zoning ordinances, public health ordinances and maintaining well kept buildings and properties.

Occasionally, a property does not meet the above goals and residents have a right to voice their concern. To facilitate in this process, LGHCA has agreed to be an intermediary between concerned citizens and the appropriate governing agency. Please download the form and ordinances. Read, complete and return the form.

Our Procedure
Upon receiving your form, the LGHCA Board will review the form, verify that an ordinance exists regarding the concern and then send the property owner an appropriate letter describing the concern, the ordinance and suggest that the property owner take corrective action. If no corrective action is taken, you can complete a “no-action taken” form and your submitted property concerns information (without your name) will be forwarded to Cook County or the Township of Lyons for review. If you desire, you may contact Cook County or the Township of Lyons directly, see page 3 of the form for contact info. DO NOT send this form to them. This form is for LGHCA communication only.

Questions can be sent to our committee at PC@lhcivic.com.
