Mount Prospect

The Village of Mount Prospect is a nationally-acclaimed community recognized for excellent housing, high performing schools and outstanding services.

When Business Week Magazine announced in 2008 that Mount Prospect was the number one place to raise kids, followed in 2010 by Money Magazine’s claim that the Village was one of the “Top 50 Places to Live” in the U.S., residents couldn’t have agreed more. In 2013, Movoto Real Estate, which ranks cities and towns across America, named Mount Prospect one of the “Top 10 Best Cities in Illinois.”

What makes Mount Prospect so desirable? It’s conveniently located to downtown Chicago, O’Hare International Airport and Chicago Executive Airport, two Interstate highways and two commuter rail systems within miles of each other.

Residents enjoy a high quality of life provided through outstanding municipal services. Neighborhoods boast tree-lined streets. The Village government partners with the private sector to promote seasonal events, such as Fridays on the Green summer concerts, Downtown Block Party and more. Residents can enjoy retail centers, such as RandhurstVillage,for shopping, entertainment, hotel lodging and dining experiences.
