Village President's Welcome


Hello, and thank you for considering Algonquin.  Algonquin offers the strongest business corridors in the region (Randall and Algonquin Roads), as well as ideal industrial and corporate sites, fully serviced with water, sewer, gas, electric, and fiber.  With a significant highly trained labor pool and a location just minutes from a major interstate, Algonquin offers a lot more advantages for business than most people realize.

Our seasoned staff has decades of experience with large and small construction projects, and is committed to getting your project approved, permitted and under construction in weeks, rather than months.  The Village features with a simple, reliable, consistent and timely process, whether you choose one of our many shovel-ready sites, or your site needs a full array of entitlements. 

Our Village leaders and staff have worked hard over three decades to assure a financially stable government in a community with an outstanding quality of life.  In addition to great opportunities for commerce, Algonquin features a wide variety of housing opportunities in walkable neighborhoods, convenient shopping and dining areas, and excellent schools.  Tree lined streets and wooded hillsides add to the ambience, and we offer parks and many other amenities within easy walking distance from most neighborhoods.  Our community is also surrounded by large forest preserves, natural fens and prairies, and amazing recreational areas.  Access to the Fox River offers both exciting motor boating, jet skiing and water skiing opportunities north of the dam, and relaxing sailboarding, canoeing and kayaking opportunities south of the dam.

Please look around our website and discover why Algonquin is an A+ community.  If you have any questions or need any further information, please call the Village at 847-658-2700, or send an e-mail to
