 Homer Glen

The village of Homer Glen is located 25 miles southwest of downtown Chicago in Homer Township, Will County, Illinois. The village was incorporated on April 17, 2001.

The Village of Homer Glen has recently been ranked the #1 safest place to live in Illinois by Movoto.com. To determine the 50 safest places in Illinois, Movoto.com listed the most populated areas in the state and then found data in what Movoto deemed significant criteria from the FBI's Uniform Crime Report. Movoto focused on reported murders, violent crimes, property crimes and total crimes for each location. Of the 115 locations reviewed, Homer Glen was picked as the safest IL community due to the lowest number of reported crimes. Movoto praised Homer Glen's all-around safety, noting "…there's simply no better option" than Homer Glen.

Village of Homer Glen's Mayor Jim Daley stated "It is an honor to be recognized by Movoto as the number one safest community in IL." Mayor Daley continued, "I can attribute our ranking to two factors: our residents are committed to sustaining a safe community and the ongoing good work of our Sheriff's department." "Homer Glen is a wonderful community in which to safely live, raise children and do business," concluded Mayor Daley. (Chicago Tribune, Aug. 20, 2014)

Homer Glen was also named the 3rd International Dark Sky Community in the world. Homer Glen is only the fourth community in the world and the first municipality in the State of Illinois to be awarded this honorable designation. The Village of Homer Glen received this award because of its “exceptional dedication to the preservation of the night sky through the implementation and enforcement of quality lighting codes, dark sky education and citizen support of dark skies."
