Morton Grove is a small but tight-knit community. The public parks and forest preserves are well-maintained, and the park district has state of the art facilities. There is an abundance of small businesses to shop at, with restaurants offering a variety of foreign cuisines. The local schools do an excellent job of educating children. The only complaint about the town is the road maintenance: There are some streets in the community that need to be repaved.
The village has done right by me as a resident. I am pleased with the staffing that runs things, from the village itself, to the fine personnel that tend to Fire and Rescue, law enforcement, and dearly to the Schools, the Park District and Library. I see nothing but good in the times ahead for Morton Grove, as it looks to change the faces of some areas that can use some brightening, to their recent success in getting the mall transformation underway in 2019.
