President Message

On behalf of the Village Board, Village Clerk, staff, and residents, it is my privilege to extend a warm and sincere welcome to you.

This website contains information that will assist you in becoming better acquainted with Richton Park. If, after reviewing this site, you still have any questions, I encourage you to give our staff a call and they will be glad to assist you.

The Village of Richton Park lives it's motto, "A proud past and bright future", every day. We are indeed proud of our past. From the time the Old Sauk Trail became a wagon stop for those traveling to the West, we have been a welcome sight to many a visitor. To being one of the first rail commuter communities in the Chicago area, we have celebrated over 75 years of accomplishments. We don't stop there. With our current westward expansion and the approval to run water and sewer lines to Harlem Ave., Richton Park is poised to grow once again. Several developers have expressed interest in building new homes and businesses in our area west of Interstate 57. Add to that our current plans to renovate and expand our Downtown area around the Metra Station and you have a future that is indeed bright.

Come join us in our march into the 21st Century and be a part of one of the finest communities in the Midwest. You too would be glad to call Richton Park home!


Richard "Rick" Reinbold, President
