Welcome to Hazel Crest!

Whether you are a lifelong resident, a business owner or someone who is looking to move to our village, I hope we have created an easily accessible electronic forum for you to access all of the information, services, ordinances, procedures and forms you need to accomplish your goal.

In addition to the information contained on this website, the Village of Hazel Crest has experienced and professional staff members who are willing to answer questions and help guide you through the process of government in a prompt and courteous manner.

Our site also lists special events, community organizations and homeowner’s associations, and opportunities for health care, transportation, shopping and dining within the village in addition to links to other websites providing supplemental information and services available from other governmental entities.

If there is anything you believe should be included the Village of Hazel Crests’ official website to make it better or if you have a problem with navigating any particular section or process, please let us know my emailing my office at valsberry@villageofhazelcrest.com.
