In Ciceros early days, immigrants wanting to make a better life for themselves arrived in this area located just west of Chicago. The town continues to grow with new arrivals, who are prepared to work hard and enjoy life.
More than 71,000 people live in Cicero, the 20th largest community in the state. These people take advantage of Chicagos amenities while, at the same time, enjoying suburban comforts, like spacious backyards and parks. Surrounding this western suburb are major expressways and other main roads, which make driving near and far a simple task. Plenty of public transportation is also available.
One of the benefits of Ciceros diverse population is its variety of dining pleasures. Just like the Eastern European cuisine introduced by early immigrants, the newer immigrants are serving up scrumptious fare derived from their homelands, namely Mexico and Asia.
The town continues to grow. It is meeting new challenges with quality education, an abundance of recreational opportunities, well-maintained roads, and numerous business incentives, while still retaining much of its grass roots qualities.
Ciceros reputation as a town of progress may be attributed to its civic and business leaders and caring residents. The residents have maintained their civic pride, independence and strong family values. Its civic leaders continue to work cooperatively with the people, promoting the welfare of its youth and enhancing the quality of life in its neighborhoods.
