Join us in Des Plaines exciting renaissance

Updated 10/25/2021 10:25 PM

We in Des Plaines believe that our town is undergoing an economic renaissance. The renovated Des Plaines Theatre and Onesti Entertainment have attracted a lineup of performances with excellent national reputations. We expect these performances to bring new excitement and vitality to our town, which already boasts the Allstate Arena and Rivers Casino -- the state's largest.

Property taxes in Des Plaines are among the very lowest in the Northwest suburbs thanks in large part to a thriving business and industrial community. The median price of a home has jumped by more than 12 percent.


We have affordable housing and do not need to build a special project to create it. We have a diverse population and are proud of it. We have a young forward thinking mayor who is breathing new life into a mature suburb, as stories in this newspaper will attest.

Want to have some fun? Join us for an adult beverage at the Beacon Tap on Lee Street. The place is doubling in size and vibrant with young people on weekends.
