Supervisor Laura J. Morask  
Residents of unincorporated Maine Township are invited to complete a Visioning survey. Those who own property or have businesses in the area are also encouraged to participate. Results will be used in the creation of the Maine-Northfield Plan being put together with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) and Cook County. The draft plan is designed to be ready for public comment in early 2018.
                                                                                                                                                                                                        Maine Township is proud to serve residents in parts of Des Plaines, Park Ridge, Niles, Glenview, Morton Grove, and Rosemont. We aim to improve the quality of life for everyone in the township by offering services and events with the needs of our residents in mind.
