Downers Grove has diverse neighborhoods, great schools and parks; proximity to Chicago, airports and highways; a vibrant downtown, a well-regarded regional hospital; terrific police, fire and public works; a connected and involved business community; ample amenities for all citizens; and a sense of neighborliness and community that is unmistakable. All of this is achieved because Downers Grove is comprised of good, caring and involved residents who care deeply about their community and their neighbors."</p>
