New Resident Information
Welcome to your new home in Arlington Heights! It is our hope that this on line informational guide to the Village will improve citizens' access to information as well as encourage visitors and businesses to make our community their new home.
Arlington Heights is a long-standing community proud of its heritage and optimistic about its future. Our Village was founded in 1836 when a Yankee stonecutter, Asa Dunton, was the first to stake claim here. Soon afterward, railroad tracks were laid through the town's center and businesses began developing. Arlington Heights remains today the thriving residential and business community it was then. Arlington Heights derives its vibrant and comfortable personality from the energy and dreams of its citizenry and business community. Our residents should be proud of the strong community we are today and anyone looking for a new home - whether residential or business - will be impressed with the quality of life we have to offer. I encourage our citizens to take advantage of the informational opportunities contained here. We invite residents and future visitors to explore our community through this online guide.
