Welcome To Crete

A Message From Village President Einhorn

On behalf of myself and the Crete Village Board, I would like to welcome you to the new and improved Village of Crete website.  We have recently decided that it was time to provide the public with a newly configured web page that is designed to provide a better and more comprehensive experience for our residents and visitors.  Management and staff have worked diligently to redesign the site to better fit what we perceive as the needs of the community and the Village operation as well as secure a cost savings by hosting the site ourselves.  Please browse the site and give us your feedback, we would love to hear from you.

We also would love to have you come out to our charming little town and find out why Crete is a hidden gem in the southern suburbs of Chicago.  With farmland to our south and suburbia to the north we have many amenities that other communities just dream about.  We are blessed with ample open space, diverse housing stock, good transportation, great local services and reasonable real estate values.  Whether you are looking for a new home or a place to build your business we have opportunities to meet your needs.  We have a great park district and local full service library, several churches of various denominations and a stable well-run conservatively operated local government that is focused on the needs of the community.  We pride ourselves in being pro-business and have a history of providing quick answers to the needs of the business and development community.

With solid long range planning and traditional small town values that strive to blend the old with the new, we have been successful in attracting quality development in both our commercial and industrial areas.   We encourage you to visit our area and see what Crete has to offer, and experience what we have known for years; YOU CAN’T BEAT CRETE!

I am proud and honored to represent the Village of Crete and it’s thousands of wonderful residents since 1985.
