Community Profile

In Itasca is a delightful study in contrasts with historic buildings, charming homes and local businesses, as well as modern facilities and Fortune 500 businesses.

Located 20 miles northeast of Downtown Chicago in DuPage County, Itasca offers residents, businesses and visitors access to superior transportation options, including two major interstates, Metra train service on the Milwaukee District West Line, and Pace Bus service. The newly constructed IL Rt. 390 is providing western access to nearby O’Hare International Airport. The village has also established a network of walking and bike paths around the community.

Itasca has a quaint downtown, which features local merchants and restaurants. Just south of the downtown is the community’s signature green space, Usher Park. On many Saturday afternoons, visitors will see couples posing for wedding pictures in Usher Park’s iconic gazebo with the historic church in the background. Surrounding Itasca’s downtown area are many historic homes, some built in the mid-1800s. The majority of Itasca homes were built in the 1950s and 1960s, with many newer homes built on the community’s perimeter.  A new 300-unit luxury apartment complex has recently been completed in the Hamilton Lakes office park, providing options for those in Itasca who want to live close to work and transportation.
