Attractions: Skokie's reputation as "The Village of Vision" is well-deserved. Skokie's excellent location has aided its development and sustained its prosperity. The Skokie Chamber of Commerce has long contributed to the growth of our local economy by offering a wide range of services and helpful educational and networking opportunities for area businesses. Carefully planned zoning has created quiet and attractive residential areas, bustling retail districts including Old Orchard Center, and attractive industrial zones filled with highly successful, clean, light industry. It is a community abundant with educational, recreational, cultural, and employment opportunities.

Skokie's village government is widely recognized for the high quality and breadth of its services and the professionalism of its employees, all at one of the lowest tax rates in the Chicagoland region. Skokie schools have won national awards for their excellence. Skokie Park District is a leader in the field of parks and recreation and winner of the 1997 National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Parks and Recreation Management. Skokie Public Library is unquestionably one of the finest libraries in the metropolitan area. Skokie's superb local government services, its successful mix of residential, commercial, and industrial areas, and its proactive approach to economic development make it a most desirable place to work, live, and raise a family.

Illinois Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities
