Our Community


Welcome home to Morton Grove. Our tagline, “Incredibly Close, Amazingly Open,” truly defines us. We are incredibly close in so many ways. Our location can’t be beat; we are close to downtown Chicago, O’Hare Airport, Interstates 94 and 294, and are serviced by Metra trains and Pace buses. We have outstanding restaurants and shops, with many more just minutes away. More importantly, we are an “Incredibly Close” community of neighbors that enjoys living in Morton Grove and cares about each other.

We are also proud to be “Amazingly Open.” Twenty percent of our land is part of the Cook County Forest Preserve District, and we enjoy biking and hiking trails, a public golf course, and wonderful neighborhood parks. “Amazingly Open” also describes who we are; we are a diverse community with residents born in scores of different countries. We welcome everyone to Morton Grove and are always open to new neighbors, new cultures, and new ideas.

We hope the Morton Grove Resident Handbook will be a useful resource to help you learn “all things Morton Grove” – we have included everything from when to buy landscape stickers to where to register to vote. My door is always open, and I would love to hear from you if you have any questions or suggestions.
