Chamber Director’s Letter

On behalf of the Skokie Chamber of Commerce, its

almost 600 member businesses and our Board of

Directors, I am very pleased to introduce the 2010-

2011 Skokie Community Guide. There is a lot to

showcase and be proud of in our community. The

Village of Skokie is strong and vibrant, undergoing a

renaissance unique to established communities in the

Chicagoland area. We owe this growth and economic

resurgence to many factors including the stability of the business

community and the vision of our village management and elected officials.

If you drive up and down our streets, you will see well-maintained centers

of activity. Our school districts are diverse centers of academic excellence.

We have an award-winning library system, police department and fire

department. The Skokie Park District maintains 49 public facilities,

encompassing more than 250 acres of parkland, miles of bicycle paths and

dozens of other special amenities that make the district a gem in the

community. The Village of Skokie is home to three colleges and universities:

Oakton Community College, National-Louis University and Everest College.

The village is also home to the North Shore Center for Performing Arts,

Centre East, North Light Theater, the Skokie Music Theater, the Skokie

Symphony Orchestra and the Northshore Sculpture Park. Skokie is truly a

great place to live, raise a family and operate a business.

Businesses in Skokie play a vital role in the economic stability of our

community. The Village of Skokie has a solid industrial, manufacturing and

technology presence, along with a retail mix which draws people into the

community from throughout the metropolitan area. This strong business

presence contributes to the tax base of the village, keeping residential taxes

low for our 66,000 residents. The Skokie Chamber of Commerce has been

an active advocate for businesses on the North Shore for more than

85 years. The Skokie Chamber serves its member businesses by offering

connections to resources that foster growth, stability and success.

We achieve these goals by providing benefits and programs to member

businesses including:

• Monthly networking events and industry-specific networking groups

• Specialized networking venues including Women in Business,

Young Professional’s Network, the Skokie Chamber Breakfast Club, the

Manufacturer’s Roundtable and the Small Office/Home Office Network

• Educational seminars that provide valuable information to businesses

• Participation in multi-community industry forums and trade shows

• Participation and production of community festivals such as the

Festival of Cultures, Taste of Skokie Valley, North Shore Festival of

Art and the Backlot Bash

• Informational and marketing opportunities such as the Skokie

Community Guide, Skokie Shopping & Dining Guide, Skokie Lifestyle

Magazine, The Chamber Connection Monthly Newsletter and the

Community Street Map

The Skokie Chamber of Commerce is proud to contribute to the success

and vitality of the Village of Skokie. We hope that you find value in this

publication and that you look toward our member businesses when you

are looking for a product or service. Should you have any questions or

comments regarding the Skokie Community Guide or any other member

benefits or services, please feel free to contact the Skokie Chamber at

(847) 673-0240 or e-mail us at info@skokiechamber.org. Additional copies

of this publication, the Skokie Community Guide, are available at our office.

To obtain information about member businesses, please stop by our office.

We are located in the heart of downtown Skokie at 5002 Oakton Street.

Best Regards,

Howard S. Meyer

Executive Director, Skokie Chamber of Commerce

In April 1957, Skokie residents voted

overwhelmingly to adopt the council-manager

form of municipal government. A councilmanager

government system combines the

strong political and policy-making leadership of

elected officials, such as the Mayor and Board of

Trustees, with the strong managerial experience

of an appointed Village Manager. Skokie’s Village

Board includes the Mayor, Village Clerk and six

Trustees that serve on an “at large” basis and do

not represent any one particular geographical

area of the community. The Village Manager is

appointed by the Mayor and Board of Trustees to

carry out policy and ensure that the entire

community is being serviced.

The Village Board is committed to providing

superior municipal services while holding the line

on property taxes. In 1991, the Village Board

committed to freeze municipal property taxes

while expanding and enhancing government

services. The municipal property tax freeze

remains in effect today.

Skokie was the first community in the entire

United States to have nationally accredited Fire,

Police and Public Works Departments. Skokie Fire

Department holds both a Class 1 rating from

the Insurance Services Office, an independent

organization used by the insurance industry to

rate fire-fighting capability, and full accreditation

from the Commission on Fire Accreditation

International. Skokie Police Department is

nationally accredited by the Commission on

Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, a

credential it has held since 1988. The Public

Works Department first achieved accreditation

in 2003 from the American Public Works

Association and accreditation in 2006. In

addition, the Skokie Health Department is one

of only eight State-certified municipal health

departments in Illinois and provides a wide range

of services to Skokie residents.

For more than 14 years, the village has received

recognition for financial reporting excellence from

the Government Finance Officers Association.

Skokie earned a AAA bond rating from Fitch IBCA

for its 2003 General Obligation bond series.

Citizens of the community are truly involved

in the governmental process. Fourteen

commissions staffed by more than 250

volunteer residents assist the Mayor and Trustees

in an advisory capacity.

Skokie Demographics:

The 2009 Census estimate of Skokie’s

population was 66,468, with about 6,607

people per square mile. There are approximately

25,100 housing units with an average household

size of 2.88 people — 74 percent of all housing

stock is owner-occupied, 26 percent of it is

comprised of rental units and our vacancy rate is

only 2 percent.

Fiscal Year 2010 has 3,470 building permits

issued by the village and added 43 new dwelling

units. The value of new construction in Skokie

during this period is estimated at $133,261,308.

For Fiscal Year 2010, the median value of a

residential unit in Skokie was $225,000. The

2008 median family income is $79,596, with a

per capita income of $29,677.

Location:

The Village of Skokie is a northern suburb of

Chicago and covers approximately 10.1 square

miles of land. The village’s breadth is estimated at

3.53 miles and its length is 4.17 miles. Skokie

shares borders with the City of Evanston to the

east; the Villages of Glenview and Wilmette to the

north; the Villages of Morton Grove and Niles to

the west and the Village of Lincolnwood and the

City of Chicago to the south.

Skokie Commerce and Industry:

There are approximately 360 different types of

industries in Skokie, and the total 2004 retail

volume is estimated at $1,228,143,000. The

total labor force of the village was 32,355 in

2003, with the majority of that number employed

outside the village boundaries. The village

government has more than 500 employees in

its workforce.

Skokie is home to 194 manufacturing firms

employing 5,536 people in manufacturing and

31,533 in the private sector, including many

industry leaders. Corporate citizens include

Skokie’s famous, fabulous, fantastic Farmers’

Market, celebrating more than a quarter century

of operation, presents farmers and vendors from

five Midwestern states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa,

Michigan and Wisconsin. The Farmers’ Market

continues to proudly boast of this

community-spirited event and the freshness of

its vegetables, fruits, cheeses and flowers, often

picked just hours before being made available to

customers.

Background

The first Farmers’ Market opened with a dozen

vendors in June of 1975. Sponsored by the

Village of Skokie Consumer Affairs Commission,

the market has steadily grown in size to host

more than 4,000 visitors each year. Two of

Natailya Grin shops for pickles at the

Farmers Market.

- photo by Stacia Timonere

today’s vendors who sold their produce at the

first market are Miller Farms of Coloma,

Michigan and Dongvillo Farms of St. Joseph,

Michigan. Tony Durante continues to delight

adults and children alike with his rapid

knife-sharpening techniques. A number of sons

and daughters of other original vendors continue

to participate in the market. Many of the

customers return year-after-year as well. The

original objective of freshness and quality is

assured by keeping the Market to a modest size.

In addition to a variety of produce, some vendors

also create homemade sauces from their

offerings. Portabello and Morrel mushroom

sauces are available, which are sold by River

Valley Ranch. White Star Gourmet sells delicious

European sauces. The market is a Skokie

community event. People renew their friendships

with the farmers and other visitors each year.

They come to shop—some even purchasing

barrels of sweet corn and apples—and to catch

up on a year’s worth of news. Today there are 17

vendors. The market has branched out slightly to

reflect customer demand for such foods as

freshly baked bread and pastries, as well as a

wide array of spices, herbs and sauces.

Vendors

• Art and Linda’s: wildflowers

• Bauske Farms: fresh produce

• Breaking Bread: baked goods

• Country Connection: WI cheeses

• Dongvillo Farms: blueberries, cherries,

peaches, apples, jams

• Ellis Farms: flowers and landscape

ornaments

• Geils Farms: corn, melons, pumpkins

• Horcher Farms: container plants,

sweet corn, pumpkins, herbs

• Let’s Spice it Up: sauces, spices

• Le Venture: baked goods

• Miller Farms: berries, cherries,

apples, peaches, honey, apple butter

• Nielsen Farms: corn, melons, pumpkins

• Noffke Farms: peaches, apples,

tomatoes, berries, melons, rhubarb

sauces
