Letter from the Mayor
Thank you for your interest in the Village of Manhattan. As you will find, the Village is an ideal location for a business to locate, not only because of its strategic place in the rapidly growing south suburbs, but also for its proactive government.
Situated within minutes of I-55, I-80 and the southern terminus of I-355, the Village of Manhattan is easily accessible to the entire Chicagoland region. In addition to this, METRA rail just began service between the Village of Manhattan and downtown Chicago.
The Village continues to strive for aesthetic, high-quality residential and commercial development. Commercial Design Guidelines were recently adopted which will facilitate our goal of high-quality development, while at the same time providing flexibility and streamlining the development review process.
