Mission Statement

The mission of the Public Relations & Marketing Department is to provide beneficial information to present and potential residents, businesses, community organizations, and municipal employees.

We do this by designing and managing programs and services, and by providing instruments and forums of communication. We also do it through participation in various professional organizations.

Our goal is to increase communication between residents and village government and all key groups within the community.

We believe that well-informed citizens take pride in their community and are the backbone of community vitality.

Programs, Services and Special Activities

The official Village of South Holland Web Site, is a project of the Public Relations & Marketing Department. The web architect is Tim DeYoung.

South Holland's Model Community Initiative, coordinated through the Administrative Office, is a planning and management tool to institute action plans and goals for village operations. Information on specific objectives and action points is provided annually in South Holland Today.

As an outgrowth of the Model Community Initiative, the Public Relations & Marketing Department assists with organizing various forums and meetings, usually on a quarterly basis, to enhance communication and encourage the development of new ideas and programs. The meetings of the Central Committee fall in these categories.

South Holland continues to maintain a real estate Non-Solicitation List on our Web Site as a service to residents. Because of the court's rulings, we cannot require Realtors to avoid mailing to persons whose names appear on the list. We do ask them to voluntarily respect the wishes of residents who choose to place their name on such a list. Additionally, it is in regular meetings of the Local Joint Commission that we are able to address real estate issues and practices with executives of the Association of Realtors®.

The Village of South Holland aims to provide leadership that benefits other communities as well as our own residents. Consistent with this aim we maintain membership along with twenty-six other south suburban municipalities in Diversity, Inc. Through these and other involvements we are able to participate in regional fair housing activities and programs geared to maintaining unity and vitality as racially diverse communities in the southern suburbs.
