This is Round Lake
Round Lake is a community of over 18,000 residents united by village boundaries, access to Lake Michigan water, a public library, forest preserve, and exceptional park district programs.
But the community is also divided by 8 school districts, various subdivisions, incorporated and unincorporated areas, and 3 other communities with the same zip code, but different "Round Lake" names.
It is a lovely place to move, live, or raise a family. Some have inhabited the area for generations, other parts of the village were constructed during the housing boom in the 90s and 2000s.
But despite these differences, it is incumbent upon us all to focus on our present and our future while honoring and learning from our past. Where do you want Round Lake to go? Join us as we work to grow and build the community as a place we can all be proud to call home!

We've Come a Long Way!
This website initally began as a reponse to a proposed year-round Ski Hill put forth by the owner of CHDS, LLC which currently accepts and sells landscape materials at the corner of Wilson Road and Route 120.
Through the tireless efforts of countless individuals who provided FOIA documents and public records, concerned citizens began showcasing environmental violations, questionable business practices, and past lawsuits facing CHDS. The people's voices were finally heard, and the Ski Hill proposal stopped moving forward.
However, the ordeal highlighted a need for all of us to be more involved in our local government, to be aware of the decisions being made before they are almost passed without our knowing, and what steps we can take to play a more active part in how our voices are heard and represented within the community.
