The Village is a relatively young community incorporated in 1959, and in recent years has issued 16 million dollars in bonds to fund major improvements. Parks and Recreation built a first class development including a water park, pool and a new stadium.

Public Services built a new administrative building and garage and the Police Department expansion and renovation is underway. Industrial park growth has been rapid, with new eye-appealing structures and economic strength for the community.

The Village President and Board of Trustees believe that these projects are a positive investment in the future, and a window for the Village to continue its progress to provide quality services well into the 21st century. However, one of the most appealing qualities for which people choose to live here is the people. It is a community where neighbors care about neighbors and where “quality of life” is created by the dedication of its citizens.

The Village will continue to live up to its motto “A Proud and Progressive Village for All People.” Another feature that makes Glendale Heights a desirable location is its easy access to six interstate highways in the Chicago metropolitan area. Four primary roadways pass through the Village: Army Trail Road and North Avenue going east-west, and Glen Ellyn and Bloomingdale Roads running north-south. An interchange of the State Route 53/290 expressway, which provides access to Chicago and the Woodfield and O’Hare areas, is just over 1/2-mile from the Village. The new I-355 now provides a second interchange serving the Village at North Avenue. This new tollway links the Village with the East-West Tollway office and high-tech corridor, Chicago’s southwest suburbs and downstate Illinois. The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Chicago & Northwestern train services are only minutes away in nearby Wheaton, Glen Ellyn and Roselle. Frequent RTA Pace buses carry commuters to these stations during rush hours. And, all of the major motor freight carriers serving the Chicago area serve the businesses and industries of Glendale Heights.
