Life in Mount Prospect...

Mount Prospect, Illinois is a northwest suburb of Chicago. With a diverse population of over 54,000, an extensive school system and a strong base of both retail and professional businesses, Mount Prospect is a vibrant community that has much to offer, yet retains a sense of small town charm.

The big news in the 1990's and 2000's was the downtown redevelopment. Several new buildings continue to be built changing the look and make-up of the downtown area. There are several new condominium buildings as well as space for new shops and restaurants. The Village is also working on making the downtown area look more appealing. Attention is being focused on flowers, plants and trees in an effort to beautify the Village.

Yes, Mount Prospect has certainly changed. Today, we are a combination of many nationalities, award-winning schools, churches, local commerce, shopping and business centers, several park districts, a library, and highly rated Fire and Police Departments. Our Mayor and Trustees guide us into the future with the redevelopment of the downtown area. Our Village employees are dedicated to provided quality services. Despite all of this progress, Mount Prospect is still a Village whose slogan continues to ring true, "Where Friendliness is a Way of Life.”

In 2017, the Village will commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Village's incorporation. In 2014, the Centennial Commission was formed to help envision how to celebrate this milestone. Many festivities are in the works, and in true Mount Prospect fashion - things will be done bigger and better than ever before.
