Welcome 2020 - Looking Forward to Great Things

Last year was an incredibly busy year in Des Plaines. In 2019, the City experienced significant downtown streetscape improvements and, even more exciting, the purchase and renovation of the Des Plaines Theatre. The community saw a surge of development activity - from the completion of Ellison Apartments to a city block mixed-use project to its west. At the same time, the City created a new TIF District that includes the busy Lee and Oakton streets corridor and a proposed new Metra station. In 2020, we’re excited to ride the momentum we’ve worked to build over the past eight years and look forward to what the new year may bring.

While most vehicle burglaries happen in residential areas, drivers should never leave their cars running and unattended wherever they are parked. The Lock It or Lose It program has proven that people who take these simple precautions actually help dramatically reduce vehicular burglaries in their communities. Watch this video to see just how fast you can lose your valuable belongings when a car is left unlocked.
