Nothing says

Homewood

more than

Aurelio’s Pizza

Founded in 1959 by Joe Aurelio, Aurelio’s has been the meeting place for all

occasions for five generations. Joe Aurelio’s strong belief in commitment to

community led the village of Homewood to place honorary street signs in his

name along Harwood Avenue. Today Aurelio’s continues its commitment to

community in all of its 40 locations in a six state area.

President’s Letter

Support Your Local Business!

Letter from the Homewood Area

Chamber of Commerce President

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

It is my pleasure to present you the Homewood Area Chamber

of Commerce Community Guide. This handy, up-to-date reference

resource is designed for residents, visitors and business

owners to showcase the Villages of Homewood, Flossmoor and

Glenwood. This guide will provide you with useful information

about our community. Refer to it whenever you are looking for

a retailer, service or professional. Also, included is general

information and a calendar of events for each village. Plan your

year so you can gather with friends and family at the numerous

community celebrations.

Together, the Chamber and its members serve to improve

themselves, each other and the Chamber as a whole. However,

this is only possible through the time and participation of its

members. I would like to thank the officers of the Chamber, as

well as members who served on event committees, for voluntarily

giving their time and effort so that the Chamber could

succeed. If members take the time to attend meetings, network

with other businesses and so on, the Chamber can be more

than beneficial to your business.

Through Chamber membership, our local businesses demonstrate

their commitment to our area and offer you an element

of trust that each are dedicated to the success of the community

and its residents. If you know a local business that is not a

member of our Chamber, please encourage them to join us.

To learn more about the Homewood Area Chamber of

Commerce and our family of businesses, visit our Web site at

Sincerely,

Tom Tomaszewski

Homewood • Flossmoor • Glenwood

Service-oriented businesses

thrive in southern suburbs

A region once known as an industrial zone,

the Homewood-area has grown into a vibrant

service-oriented marketplace that features

a diverse mix of established locally owned

businesses and numerous big-box retailers

that have recently set up shop.

by Megan McCann

Special to Pioneer Press

Photography by Mike MacDonald

In recent years, economic development has grown

immensely in Homewood, Flossmoor and Glenwood.

Originally a region heavy in industry, it is now seeing an

influx of national retail stores and restaurants joining

the locally owned institutions, which have been the

backbone of the villages’ economies for many years.

Conveniently located near multiple interstates and

with easy accessibility to Metra and Amtrak trains,

geography makes this region attractive for commercial

development.

“Businesses stay in this area because the fine

schools and park districts are a draw for employees,”

explained Tom Tomaszewski, of Homewood Disposal,

who is also president of the Homewood Area Chamber

of Commerce. “It helps with employee

satisfaction that they can live close to

work and have good schools and parks, a

good housing market, and shop locally.”

The excellent municipal resources create

a suitable business environment and

draw customers to the area.

“The towns are pristine,” said Steven

Nemitz, owner of three local restaurants:

the Fifth Quarter in Homewood,

Northwoods at Coyote Run in

Flossmoor, and Shannon’s Landing in

Lansing. “The villages do a tremendous

job maintaining infrastructure, which is

important because if the area looks

rundown, people don’t want to be here.”

Recognizing that these qualities

create a tremendous opportunity for

economic growth in their towns, the

villages of Homewood, Flossmoor and

Glenwood have all worked with the

business community to promote

substantial commercial development in

the recent years.

Homewood

In the past ten years,

Homewood has experienced a

surge in national retailers

opening stores in the community,

particularly in the Halsted

Street Corridor. Until recently,

Halsted Street was distinguished

by empty storefronts

and aging structures.

“When I started 11 years

ago, I was told that no national

chain would ever come to

Homewood because residents

would not shop there,” said Bill

Ernat, Homewood’s community

development director.

The area is now home to

Target, Best Buy, Chili’s, PETCO,

T.J. Maxx and many other chain

retailers and restaurants.

The village’s elected officials

and staff attracted national

chains to Homewood by

attending the International

Council of Shopping Centers

(ICSC) trade shows.

“Village representatives

have built a reputation as a

community willing to work

with businesses,” Ernat said.

The village’s eagerness to

assist his company made

Homewood an obvious choice

when Tom Best wanted to move

Lighting Distributors from

Dolton.

“The village worked with us

to provide incentives that

allowed us to offset the burdensome

property taxes and

remain in Cook County,” Best

explained. “The business climate

is very friendly.”

Flossmoor

Flossmoor’s economy has

thrived in the recent years with

an influx of both residential

and commercial development.

In 2005, Flossmoor established

a business improvement district

adjacent to the village’s

downtown shopping area. This

space will be home to

Flossmoor Square, a mixed residential

and commercial development.

The village has

pledged both public and semiprivate

improvements to the

area.

“[These improvements]

will enhance the project and

insure that its development is a

natural extension of the village’s

central business district,”

said Bridget Wachtel,

Flossmoor’s village manager.

Flossmoor’s demographics

are a major factor in attracting

commercial development.

“The village enjoys some of the

highest incomes, education

and home ownership rates in

the Chicago metro area,”

Wachtel said. “Flossmoor residents

expect high-quality products

and services.”

Homewood Area Community Guide 2008-2010


Businesses are drawn to

Flossmoor because its residents

desire a high quality of

life and outstanding community

involvement.

“The residents are committed

to the economic growth

and prosperity of their community,”

said Brenda Ruckes,

assistant vice president bank

manager for the Harris Bank

branches in Flossmoor and

Homewood. “They actively

participate in making their

community a welcoming place

to live and to do business.”

Glenwood

Commercial growth in

Glenwood began expanding in

recent years with new developments

in the town’s central

business district and the continued

expansion along

Halsted Street.

Jeanne Maggio, Glenwood’s

Mayor, believes the town’s

undeveloped land in lucrative

areas is a major enticement for

businesses that are looking to

establish in major retail areas.

Homewood • Flossmoor • Glenwood

“Glenwood is one of the

last places where you can

develop and still be on Halsted

Street,” Maggio explained.

Recently, the corner of

Halsted Street and Holbrook

Road in Glenwood has experienced

a surge in commercial

development.

“Wal-Mart has been a

tremendous shot in the arm for

Glenwood,” said Maggio.

“There has been a great deal of

development on Halsted near

the store.”

The village and the company

are currently discussing

expanding the Glenwood store

into a Super Wal-Mart.

Until recently, Maggio said

Glenwood has relied almost

entirely on its many long-term

locally owned businesses; many

attribute their longevity and

success to the village’s support.

“The village has been very

giving and cooperative when

we have had special needs,”

said Tim Donohoe, general

manager of Glenwood Oaks,

specifically citing Glenwood’s

willingness to assist in traffic

control during special events.

Ingalls facility celebrates

its second anniversary

by Lauren Smaron

Special to Pioneer Press

Nationally recognized for superior outpatient care and

clinical excellence, the Ingalls Health System introduced its

latest edition to the south side with a state-of-the-art facility

in October 2005. The Ingalls Family Care Center is an 80,000square-foot

comprehensive outpatient facility. The center,

located in Flossmoor, strengthens Ingalls’s presence on the

south side alongside Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey

and outpatient facilities in Calumet City and Tinley Park.

“We just celebrated our two year anniversary, and the

center has been very well-received over that period,” said

Susan Fine, Director of Marketing for Ingalls. “It’s not only a

beautiful facility, but patient and visitor feedback reports

have been especially gratifying.”

Flossmoor’s Family Care Center specifically focuses on

orthopedics and neurosciences with a wide range of diagnostic

treatment services. Other services available at the

facility include centers for sleep studies, pain management,

joint care, sports medicine and diabetes management.

“I think the things that set this facility apart are the comprehensive

diagnostics and higher level of technology available,”

Fine said. “This is a comprehensive outpatient campus

with an array of advanced technology not usually seen in

outpatient facilities, such as MRI and CT machines.”

The most notable and popular feature of the Family Care

Center is the Ingalls Urgent Aid. This extension of the Ingalls

Emergency Department, the only one of its kind in the

immediate area, operates within a fully equipped emergency

room designed specifically for minor emergency care.

Urgent Aid, effective for all non-life-threatening illness or

injury, decreases patients’ wait time because they are not

waiting behind those with serious injuries. Similar to the

Tinley Park and Calumet City programs, Urgent Aid is open

24 hours, seven days a week.

The highly trained and carefully selected staff also continues

to set this facility apart. The second floor of the facility

contains 30,000 square feet of custom-designed office

space specifically for private physicians in a variety of specialties.

“The diverse concentrations of the physicians make the

care truly outstanding at this facility,” Fine said. “Everyone,

including the physicians, administrative staff and receptionists,

add a warmth of navigation, making the experience as

pleasant as possible.”

The Ingalls Family Care Center is located at 19550

Governors Highway, Flossmoor, IL, 60422. For more information,

call (708) 799-8400.

Homewood

The Village of Homewood celebrated

the 110th anniversary of its incorporation

on February 11, 2003. Since well

before that time, it has been a friendly,

small hometown: a great place to grow up,

raise a family and enjoy retirement. Along

with its old-fashioned charm, new residents

soon discover this quiet, suburban

community offers many of the amenities

of a larger city with its educational, cultural,

commercial and recreational

opportunities.

The Village prides itself in having

award-winning schools and the nationally

acclaimed Homewood-Flossmoor Park

District. The Village itself has repeatedly

been chosen “Best Community” in a local

newspaper readership poll, and it has

been named the top-rated community in

its class in Chicago Magazine’s survey of

more than 190 suburban communities.

Homewood offers a wide selection of

specialty shops, department stores, food

stores, home decor and improvement

stores, restaurants, financial institutions

and professional services within its

boundaries. Its attractively renovated

downtown shopping area offers smalltown

charm and cosmopolitan sophistication.

This downtown shopping area, as

well as a number of major and minishopping

malls and plazas, meet most

shoppers’ needs.

Homewood offers a wonderful mix of

housing, from the modestly priced to the

truly luxurious. Twelve houses of worship

within the community represent several

religious denominations. Nearby hospitals

and clinics provide world-class

healthcare. Homewood boasts a modern

41,500-square-foot public library, an

impressive community center and

Homewood’s own historical museum,

which are all located where residents can

quickly and conveniently travel 22 miles

by car or commuter rail service to the City

of Chicago.

Lakes, woodlands, native prairie, wetlands,

picnic grounds, Little League baseball

fields and Scout facilities comprise a

wonderful jewel tucked in the northeast

corner of the Village called the Izaak

Walton Preserve. In this 193-acre natural

area, along with the adjoining Prairie

Lakes area, residents can explore nature’s

beauty year round. They can walk all or

part of the five-mile trail system, reserve a

picnic shelter in a tranquil setting or go

birding in this beautiful sanctuary.

Unquestionably, Homewood has succeeded

magnificently in a worthy ambition:

to simply be an ideal place to raise

a family and to become a beloved

hometown to generations of Homewood

residents.

Flossmoor is governed by a

Mayor and six Trustees, who are elected

at large and serve four-year terms. The

governing body determines Village policies,

enacts ordinances and appoints a

village manger and village attorney. The

village manager oversees day-to-day

Village business operations.

Flossmoor’s government is dedicated

to open lines of communication and

deliberation. The Village maintains a fiscally

conservative tradition and high

standard of accountability, exemplified

by the numerous awards it has received

from the Government Finance Officers

Association for outstanding financial

reporting and procedures and the early

implementation of GASB 34.

The Flossmoor Building Department

comes under the jurisdiction of the Fire

Department as the Division of

Inspectional Services. The Building

Department is responsible for enforcing

various codes and works with the

Director of Public Works to ensure that

new construction meets engineering

and zoning requirements.

Flossmoor’s Public Works is responsible

for the operation and maintenance

of most of the Village’s public facilities,

including water distribution, storm and

waste water systems and street maintenance.

Beautification programs such as

tree plating, sidewalk replacement,

grounds restoration and storm damage

clean up ensure that Flossmoor is

always looking its best.

The Flossmoor Fire Department consists

of nine full-time staff, 26 volunteers

and 12 part-time firefighters and paramedics.

The Department operates out of

the station at the west end of

Flossmoor’s Village Hall on Flossmoor

Road. It is committed to public education

and conducts free home safety

inspections for all residents.

With a highly trained staff of 30 personnel

including a Police Chief, Deputy

Police Chief, Sergeants, Patrol Staff,

Investigations Unit, Community Service

Officers, and Records Clerks, the

Flossmoor Police Department is well

equipped to handle the public safety

concerns for the Village. The efforts of

the police department have helped

Flossmoor earn the status of having one

of the lowest crime rates in the region.

The Village of Flossmoor features a

unique cultural attraction; the

Flossmoor Sculpture Gardens, featuring

more than ten permanent or rotational

outdoor sculptures by world-renowned

artists, including Judith Shea, Bruce

Beasley and Richard Hunt.

Glenwood

History and tradition are both very

important to the residents of Glenwood.

Multi-generational families choose to

remain in the community. Glenwood didn’t

happen overnight; history is everywhere. It’s

not some cookie-cutter town created by a

developer. It’s a real community where residents

understand what’s gone on before and

have a real feeling for the future. Glenwood

is the product of more than 100 years of

prosperous growth and development.

The town’s early history centered on

growing with railroad development. In 1871,

residents began to receive mail by pony

express. Much of the early history was closely

associated with the development of the

Glenwood School for Boys. Todd Lincoln,

son of Abraham Lincoln, and others founded

the School in 1887. The school is still in existence

today and is located in its original setting;

however, it recently became co-ed and

is now known as Glenwood School.

Our neighborhoods are a showcase of

architectural styles. Renovation of well-constructed

older homes, many on large shaded lots, is on the upswing.

Well-kept, middle-class residential areas dominate the village landscape.

Some of the newest neighborhoods include upscale developments

featuring large custom homes. The village maintains neighborhood

parks throughout the community to provide recreational

areas for residents young and old.

In Glenwood, we recognize the importance of an excellent education.

Our school system partners with the community and the parents

to provide a nurturing, yet academic atmosphere where the students

are prepared for the challenges they will face in the world of

tomorrow. We are dedicated to providing our students with progressive

classrooms, computer labs and athletic facilities that are ranked

among the best in the Chicagoland area.

The Glenwood community values and enjoys quality living.

Community spirit and civic action thrive in Glenwood with the help

of many organizations such as Lions, Junior Women’s, etc. The public

library houses a collection of more than just books. It also includes

Complete Nail Care

Facials, Waxing

Microdermabrasion

cassettes, CDs, videos and other items. Computers are available for

adults and children at the library. In addition to being an informational

resource to the Village’s residents, the library is a vibrant place

for young and old alike to gather.
