The Village of Palatine offers diversified lifestyles with a family atmosphere. Located in northwestern Cook County, Palatine’s favorable position in the Chicago Metropolitan area is very attractive to suburban dwellers and businesses alike.

Palatine is only 30 miles from the Chicago Loop and 14 miles from O’Hare International Airport. Access to major highways, such as Interstate 90, Illinois Route 53, and U.S. Highways 12 and 14, allow convenient access to major economic activity and nearby rural environments. Multiple interstate motor freight carriers are located in Palatine.

Also, the Union Pacific Railroad (Metra) provides commuter service from Harvard to the Chicago Loop and nearby Chicago Executive Airport offers extensive facilities for private and corporate aircraft.

Annexations have expanded the Village to its current 12 square miles and a population of approximately 69,350. Substantial unincorporated and undeveloped areas have been annexed to the Village in previous years.

Palatine’s neighbors are the Villages of Arlington Heights, Deer Park, Inverness, and Schaumburg and the City of Rolling Meadows.
