“Get The Addison Advantage!” It’s not just a slogan that began 20 years ago; it’s our message that Addison is a vibrant and expanding community in DuPage County that preserves our heritage and is a welcoming place to live, work, run a business and raise your family.
“Addison is keeping up with the needs of our residents by providing the very best public services, fostering a sense of citizen engagement and offering a place for everyone,” said Mayor Rich Veenstra, elected to his second term as mayor in 2017 after serving for 21 years as a village trustee. “Addison has everything from starter homes to luxury homes for everyone from first-time home buyers, growing families, empty nesters and seniors looking for a caring community,” Mayor Veenstra said.
Businesses, too, will find Addison a place that’s on the move. Addison is near major highways and just 11 miles from O’Hare International Airport, has more than 300 acres of business park within its borders and is near many established commercial and industrial businesses. Addison is home to the largest industrial park in DuPage County and one of the largest in Illinois, making it a great place to start and expand a business.
Addison is home to a wide range of educational excellence. Leading education services include the innovative Addison Early Learning Center, a growing and diverse student population within its 10 public and parochial elementary schools, the nationally-recognized Addison Trail High School, the dynamic career and technical education programs of Technology Center of DuPage and convenient campuses of DeVry University, Chamberlain College of Nursing and College of DuPage are in Addison.
Here are just a few of Addison’s newer advantages that our community is proud of:
- Enclave at Mill Creek: 87 single-family ranch-style homes with first floor master bedrooms and optional second floors, located at Army Trail and Mill roads.
- Clarendale Senior Housing: A 215,000 square-foot, five-story facility located on Lake Street, just east of the I-355 corridor and next to Marcus Theatre and Hampton Inn & Suites. Completion is scheduled for early 2019. The community includes 98 independent, 54 assisted and 38 memory care units as well as full dining, housekeeping, a pub, fitness center, spa, billiards and a bistro.
