I wouldn't put any creedance into this list. There are much safer towns not listed and some of the towns who made the list have lousy reputations. It's dumb.

NL also has exit ramps for 2 highways. Frankfort has none.

I'm surprised New Lenox did not make the list with the Klan recruiting and doing neighborhood watches.

North Chicago made the list. How much credibility does a list that includes North Chicago as one the 50 safest cities have?

I'm not surprised. Every time I go to the NL walmart there are cops there....every time. None of the other towns want to deal with this stuff...why us? We certainly didn't need that store and most of the others that they are putting up. It just cheapens our town. They are just turnin NL into another traffic congested schaumberg. YUK! PEOPLE MOVE TO NL AND THE BURBS TO GET AWAY FROM THIS STUFF! Personally I would rather keep most of the new business out of NL. Let Orland and Tinley and Lockport have um. I can easily drive there if I need to at all. Those towns can deal with all the crime and congestion and we in NL can have a nice quiet healthy way of life. My life and my way of life in NL was much better before the walmart, white castle, aldi , and the rest moved into town. We got along just fine without them. We dont need growth if thats what you call it we need quality of life which is slowly being diminished. Our politicians clearly lack vision and forward thinking...

One more thing.....What is Miss Texas doing to keep the chain stores out and bring quality businesses into NL? 4 and 5 star restaurants etc.Not some pancake chain. What are our leaders doing to make NL a unique, special and different place to live? Mayor and staff, Think citizen quality of life not economic growth,

So, you want 4 and 5 star restaurants? Where are all those 4 and 5 star restaurants located now? Schaumburg, Oak Brook, River North...

We do have the option to conceal carry in unsafe towns like New Lenox. Plus we have our own gun shop to stock up as well.

Point taken! I just think NL has such tremendous potential, more than any burb around here. I hope it grows into everything it can be and not just another generic chain town, which it appears to be doing. I also hope that the economic development team (when they are in town) has at least some wisdom and vision and talked to the Trotter, and Bayless, people and the other whoevers who can bring in QUALITY business.
