CRIME FREE HOUSING LINKS
On Tuesday, March 6, 2007, the Village of Mount Prospect’s Board of Trustees enacted Ordinance 5619 which expanded the Crime Free Housing Program. In brief, the ordinance states that the owner of any building or dwelling unit (including a single family residence) which is rented MUST obtain a residential operator’s license. Furthermore, “a residential operator’s licenses shall not be issued until the landlord, or designated agent, has attended and successfully completed the Crime Free seminar sponsored by the Village of Mount Prospect.”
New landlords (or agents) have sixty days to successfully complete the Crime Free seminar. Failure to do so will result in fines and possible loss of their license to rent.
This expanded Crime Free Housing Program has been implemented with the goal of reducing criminal activity within the Village and improving living conditions for all residents.
For more information regarding this program, please contact one of the following department representatives.
