New Resident Information

The Village of Long Grove Welcomes you!

The name Long Grove is taken from the large grove of oak and hickory trees which once extended southwest from Gilmer Road and Route 83, along Buffalo and other creeks and through the area of Old Route 53 and Robert Parker Coffin Road and beyond, including the Deer Grove Forest Preserve.  The Village of Long Grove is unique among suburban communities--an oasis that the rapid advance of urban sprawl has not penetrated and where residents can enjoy a relaxed and rural lifestyle. This is what has attracted its residents, and it is the official policy of the Village to preserve that character through strict zoning.  Though relatively small in terms of population (it has grown to 8,010 according to the latest census), the Village is quite large in land mass, covering about 18 square miles.  This translates into many acres of open space.  Zoning ensures that residential properties are ample, thereby the open space of the community is retained and the privacy that residents cherish is protected.  In addition, the retention of natural vegetation on both public and private property is zealously protected by Village ordinances.
