Dear Resident,

On Behalf of the Village of Lake Villa, I want to welcome you to our new village website. The intent of the site is to provide information about the community, available services, and contact numbers. It also affords opportunities to interact directly with the village.

For those of you who have already chosen Lake Villa as your residence you are aware of the generations old "home town" qualities which make it a very special place to reside and raise a family. For those just browsing, our goal is to reinforce the small town centennial atmosphere with big town amenities such as the Metra/RTA commuter train and shopping possibilities.

Lake Villa has the finest schools, the two cleanest lakes in the Midwest, hundreds of acres of forest preserve, youth sports programs and an excellent library facility. Our dedicated community oriented Police and Public Works Departments are well equipped and staffed to meet all of your needs. Fire and Rescue services are provided by exceptionally well trained individuals of the Lake Villa Fire Department committed to serve their community.

We have an active Historical Society preserving the areas heritage who is currently remodeling the original Rescue Building on Lake Street for their new home. Lake Villa also has some of the finest parks and recreation areas for our citizenry of all ages.

The experienced village staff is at the ready to help you enjoy your Lake Villa experience as a resident or guest. Please call if you have any questions or suggestions.


James McDonald
