Flossmoor is a nice town in the South Suburbs of Chicago. While the elementary and middle schools are not of the best quality, the local high school is PHENOMENAL! In the summertime, there are lots of local events and activities to partake in, but in the winter there isn't much offered by the Park District and community. Also, there are few street lamps throughout the neighborhoods, so it gets very dark at night.

I’m a 12 year resident. I love the quiet and the Metra station is within walking distance of my home, as are the schools and parks. It’s relatively safe.
But, the village is aging and streets and sidewalks are deteriorating. The older neighborhoods look unkempt. Insufficient funds are allocated to maintain and improve the streets and sidewalks. The focus is on improving the small downtown area, which is fine as is. The opening of CVS and Meijer’s, has had no impact on taxes. The village does not address resident concerns regarding maintenance. This is the only suburb I have lived in that expects residents to replace the public sidewalks in front of their home with no contribution from the village. Tree maintenance, and clearing of leaves and branches is another significant cost for homeowners. I am looking to move out of Flossmoor, since I have no school-age children and the high taxes and cost of home maintenance are not worth it, and village management is nonresponsive.
Love the proximity to downtown, the small town feel, and the diversity! My husband teaches at a local school and I commute downtown in less than 45 minutes everyday. Couldn't think of a better place to raise a family.
