CREVE COEUR, IL
Situated on the bluffs overlooking the Illinois River, we pride ourselves in being a hometown friendly community with a rich history. Historic Fort Creve Coeur Park offers a taste of that history. Complete with a campground, hiking trails with stunning views of the river, the park is one of the best places in Central Illinois to enjoy the outdoors. Creve Coeur is also great place to live and do business because of our proximity to Peoria amenities and access to I-74.
The Village of Creve Coeur wants to invite you to participate in the Annual Village Holiday Decorating Contest. Participation is open to all residents within the boundaries of the Village of Creve Coeur.
Entry is FREE, no cost or fees apply.
Entry applications must be received no later than December 10th.
Contest is for exterior decorations only, including decorations in windows that are visible from the exterior. Judging will be done from outside of the residencies only. Judging will be based on “curb appeal” as viewed from the street only. Therefore only those decorations located on the street side of the property will be judged (Corner lots will be judged from both streets). Judges will not enter the property to view back or side yards.
Judging will be done the weekend of December 14th (there will be a second night of judging if there are a lot of entries). Participants should ensure that all lights, animations and decorations are in place and activated for the judging periods on both nights

The Village of Creve Coeur recently received funding through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to construct a new lift station located by way of Riley Lane. This project qualified for a $3,998,993.39 loan with $1,199,698.02 debt forgiveness at 1.38% interest rate. The loan payments will be made with the capital improvement revenue. The construction of this lift station will eliminate 6 of the lift stations throughout town and will help with the backup issues that have occurred in the past. For more information, please contact Village Hall at 309-699-6714.
