Our Goals, Community & People
Our GoalsWhile we sometimes disagree on how we will achieve our goals, we are united in identifying them:
- A balanced budget
- Supporting our business community
- Revitalizing our downtown
- Strong police and fire services
Our CommunityLike many communities near us, the physical boundaries Village of Roselle span across many parts. We exist across two counties, with Devon Avenue being the dividing line:
- Cook County (20%)
- DuPage County (80%)
Our downtown area and rich history combine to provide our sense of community. Roselle is a wonderful village in which to live and raise a family. We have good schools, both public and private, and churches of all denominations.
Our PeopleWe are a community blessed with volunteers. Our caring residents are responsible for our Rose Carnival and Parade, held the first weekend in June, as well as the Taste of Roselle, on the first weekend in August.
Volunteers also operate and maintain our Historical Museum, continue our Sister City Association, and run the park district's baseball and softball programs, swim team, and countless scout troops and parent-teacher organizations.
