The Barrington Public Library District Board of Trustees continues to research and discuss a proposed Intergovernmental Agreement with the Village of Barrington, relating to the re-routing of Lake Zurich Road to intersect with U.S. Route 14 (Northwest Highway) at the existing traffic signal at Berry Road. This proposed Intergovernmental Agreement includes the permanent sale of a parcel of Library District land of more than 2.5 acres from the Library to the village for highway purposes, as well as a request for additional Library District land of more than 2.5 acres to be used as a temporary construction easement for the length of time of construction.

Residents of the Library District may have questions about the Board’s process as it prepares to vote on the Intergovernmental Agreement. This website contains answers to FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and important documents (impact studies, expert opinions, plats of survey, and more) that explain the Board’s research and review process thus far, and clarify the Board’s next steps before voting on the Intergovernmental Agreement. This site will be updated as new information becomes available.
