Hello and welcome to the home website for Calumet Park, Illinois!

There are many great things the Village has to offer the community. Scheduled

annual events nurture our village in many ways. Our caring neighbors, committed administrators and staff, new and expanding resources and thriving businesses

help to make Calumet Park – The Place to Be!


Located only 16 miles from downtown Chicago, Calumet Park has the comforts of a small Village. This is reflected in our quarterly newsletter that highlights our Recreation Center, Parks, Senior Center, Chamber of Commerce, School Districts, and various community events– including the popular Community Festival held each year during Summer.


As I stand here in the hub of our new state-of-the-art 911 Center (CALCOMM 9-1-1),
I marvel at how collective effort always brings progress. And I am honored that the

first emergency center in Cook County with the capacity to accept calls and

"text-to-911" messages is housed right here in Calumet Park Village.


To learn more about our progress, feel free to download the Community Brochure

which highlights our three priorities: Community Commerce – bringing viable

businesses to the Village, Community Collaboration – working together as a

community and with others to bring resources to the Village, and Community

Condition – securing public support for Village infrastructure. Also, to learn how to partner with us with your business, click here for our Economic Development website.


Calumet Park is a forward thinking community that embraces progress.

Best wishes,

Mayor Ronald Denson
