Since Clarendon Hills' founding father, Henry Middaugh, grew weary of city life and settled 18 miles west of the city in 1854, it's gone by the nickname, "Daisy Fields." Due to a clerical error, Middaugh received a huge shipment of daisy seed instead of grass seed intended for livestock. Although the new property owner was aggravated by the mistake, area residents flocked to the beautiful flowering village for weekend visits, picnics and afternoon strolls.
Although there are a few less daisies growing around Clarendon Hills today, this western Chicago suburb with approximately 8,427 residents (2010 U.S. Census data) still celebrates an annual Daisy Days Festival with sidewalk sales, fair games, ice cream booths and live music. Thanks to a Metra Railway Line that provides daily rail service between Aurora and Chicago, this is a popular suburban home for downtown commuters. One of the notable features that sets Clarendon Hills apart from other suburbs in the area is its landscape architecture. The streets of Clarendon Hills are organic and shaped by the terrain's contours, following in the inspirational footsteps of Frederick Law Olmstead. See more
Finding an apartment in Clarendon Hills that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
