Mayor's MessagePRS_2583 Tom Hood

Dear Visitor,

On behalf of the Village Board, Village Administrator, Village Staff, and myself, I welcome you to our website.

Gurnee is an active and growing community with a vibrant volunteer spirit. We’re a friendly village with an outstanding quality of life.  We’re proud of our heritage and equally proud of our reputation as an attractive and progressive Village.

Cooperative efforts between Village government and local organizations have given Gurnee outstanding success in economic development.  Our Village offers a blend of options to those visiting: from our vast amount of shopping, dining, and lodging accommodations to our biggest thrill, Six Flags Great America, we are a truly welcoming community with plenty to offer our residents and guests. 

Our community offers superb community services, such as parks, schools, and libraries, to name just a few.  Gurnee is not just a great place to visit--it is a wonderful place to call home, with top-notch police and fire protection combined with outstanding neighborhoods maintained by strong Village departments.

We are devoted to providing our residents and visitors with the best environment possible.  In an effort to build upon this fine tradition, the Village of Gurnee presents to you our official website. This site is a valuable gateway to the many other services we currently offer to our residents and guests. It acts as a focal point for timely information and communication between our residents and Village staff.

We hope you will visit our website often!
