City Guide

Niles is a contemporary city, both historically and today. Though Niles did not become a municipality until the last year of the 19th century, what it has become since is remarkable.

Niles

Niles is a beautiful place to live. With less than 30,000 people, Niles feels small-town.

What best illustrates the pioneering innovation of today's Niles is the village's website, one of the most progressive municipal websites in the nation. VNiles.com provides everything from zoning, branch and garbage pickup, and public land survey system maps to a comments page for city council members and public administration staff.

Summers and Winters in Niles

Garage Parking: It's impossible to beat the summers in Niles. The lush foliage and blooming flowers everywhere are proof of that, but the winters can become a bit chilly.

Main Road Entrance: While Niles gets of 38 inches of rain each year, one inch less than the national average, it also gets 38 inches of snowfall, a foot more than the national average. That means if the access to your apartment is an alley, you could get plowed in on snow days.

Pools, Fountains, Ponds and Lakes: It gets hot in Niles during the summer and sometimes that means extremely hot -- 108-degrees hot! So, if you can find an apartment near a place where you can cool down, preferably the community center and its huge pool and water slide, you're best off.

A Community's Community

Aside from the beautiful setting, the reason a person would want to live in Niles is what the community offers. The municipality levies a tax for everything from telecommunications, food and beverage, and property to sales tax and a real estate transfer tax. But, while the taxes in Niles are the second highest of any community in Illinois, the free public services are exceptional and include:

  • Free bus service
  • Free garbage (includes bulk refuse like construction materials), recycling, branch and leaf pickup
  • Municipal electric aggregation
  • Family fitness center
  • Senior center
  • Teen center
  • Municipal bike route
  • Memorial waterfall
  • The Leaning Tower of Niles
