    About Us

    Mundelein: A Great Place to START…and STAR.

    The Village of Mundelein, a vibrant and progressive community of nearly 32,000 residents, is situated in the center of beautiful Lake County, Illinois, one of the strongest areas of commercial and industrial growth in the nation, with excellent housing, recreation, educational and business opportunities. Mundelein takes pride in its brand promise: “Mundelein will be Central Lake County’s premier location for entrepreneurs and known as a welcoming community.”

    Currently, Mundelein is experiencing significant interest in residential developments of various types. Also, non-residential property owners, brokers, and tenants (commercial, industrial, institutional) are expressing a need to Mayor Steve Lentz and the Board of Trustees for increased rooftops to provide tenants, customers, and employees.

    Mundelein’s Building Department also reports that there is an increase in permits for independent projects by private homeowners and business owners. This is all very positive and exciting news for Mundelein, indicating that the strategic steps the Village has taken over the past two decades is indeed attracting attention with developers, homeowners, and businesses. Credit to Mundelein’s current and past Board Members for their vision and tactical thinking.

    Often referred to as, “the Heart of Lake County,” the Village of Mundelein is well positioned for convenient access to and from the City of Chicago and the greater Chicago region.
