In response to the severe flooding of 2013, the Village obtained a federal grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to purchase three lots at the corner of Sunset Drive and Crest Drive and convert the properties into open space to enhance the drainage in that area.

​Demolition was completed in 2015 following the acquisition of the properties according to the process specified by the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program that is administered by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) on behalf of FEMA.

​The bid for final grading was awarded in the summer of 2016.  Work is expected to begin on August 8, 2016 and be completed by fall of 2016.
