New Barrington Hills website offers a look at what makes village unique
Barrington Hills redesigned the village's website to add a bevy of features intended to allure new residents and provide quick reference to current homeowners.
Among the features is a new lifestyle section highlighting some of the things that makes the village so unique, including it's equestrian heritage and the large, 5-acre minimum lots on which the vast majority of resident's houses and mansions are built.
The site describes the village as a community low in legislation and high in property rights, one where residents can indulge their passions and interests at home. Those passions can include using one's property to launch hot air balloon rides, set off a huge fireworks displays and raise chickens, ducks, goats, alpacas, bees and all other animals allowed by the state.
"It gives people looking to live here a better sense of what it's like to live in Barrington Hills," communications director Anna Paul said.
Paul and Village President Martin McLaughlin worked with a marketing team and a group of local realtors to get their input on what to include in the redesign.
"I expect www.vbhil.gov to become an invaluable resource for our residents that will differentiate us from other communities in the northwest suburbs," McLaughlin said.
