South Holland is an Outstanding Community!

South Holland is Truly an Exceptional Place
To Live and Raise Your Family

Quiet Sundays
The residents of South Holland thoroughly enjoy having Sunday as a quiet day each week. Businesses in South Holland are closed on Sundays, with the exception of those serving the traveling public, such as restaurants and gas stations. While no ordinance prevents yard work, etc., on Sundays, most residents choose to keep Sunday as a quiet day.

No Liquor
South Holland is a “dry” town. There are no bars and no liquor is sold within Village limits.

No Pornography
Pornography is not sold and pornographic videos are not rented within Village limits.

Single Family Homes
There are no apartment complexes in South Holland.

Well-Maintained Homes
Our residents take pride in their homes and property. Well manicured lawns and well-maintained homes have long been a hallmark of South Holland. A strong Code Enforcement Department works to protect every resident’s investment in their homes and property.

A Community Of Churches
South Holland is home to more than 30 churches of many denominations.

Involved Residents
South Holland residents take great pride in their community and are always looking to enhance it. More than 200 residents serve as volunteers on a host of commissions and committees such as the Urban Forestry Commission, Park Advisory Board, Economic Development Commission, Neighborhood Groups Organizing Committee, and many others.

Low Crime
South Holland is a safe community with a low crime rate. The number of Part I Index Crimes (murder, criminal sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault/battery, burglary, theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson) is lower now than in 1981 when record-keeping began. While our crime rate is very low, it could be still lower if our citizens use simple preventative measures. For instance, when fueling your vehicle, do not leave your purse unattended or keys in the ignition. Be sure bicycles are stored securely at night.
