Mayor’s Welcome

On behalf of the more than 75,000 residents of the Village of Arlington Heights, I welcome you to one of the most dynamic communities in Illinois. Located just a quick train ride to the Chicago Loop, Arlington Heights offers convenient access to the amenities of a large city while living in a community that offers quaint neighborhoods, an active lifestyle, dynamic shopping, dining and entertainment, top-rated schools, library and park district.

The village prides itself on offering an outstanding quality of life for its residents. Arlington Heights offers a variety of housing options, from affordable to upscale, in an array of pleasant single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and apartments.

Offices and business parks offer diverse employment potential as well as positive and welcoming business environments. Thanks to the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce partnering with the village through our small business retention agreement, the village continues on the course of strengthening our economy – adding 77 new businesses and 350 jobs in 2017. We encourage all businesses to work with the village staff and the Chamber to help their businesses achieve great success.

We are continuing to make our community even better by focusing on potential development in certain areas and beautification enhancements on key corridor areas throughout the village. We plan to continue being a leader in the northwest suburbs regarding employment potential and creating a welcoming and exciting business environment.

The village leaders look forward to continued positive growth while retaining existing businesses and attracting new ones. Our partnership with the Chamber of Commerce is critical to helping Arlington Heights thrive.

Experience all that Arlington Heights offers residents and businesses alike. You will not be disappointed.


Thomas W. Hayes
Mayor, Village of Arlington Heights
