Get to know Palatine, IL
Palatine is a northwestern suburb just over 30 miles from Chicago. The village has seen controversy in the last several decades. Since 1992 the Palatine has been without an official flag or zeal, following a lawsuit calling for the Christian cross to be removed. After a 2008 sales tax hike, residents passed an advisory referendum in 2009 to secede from Cook County to escape the 9% sales tax. The town has also focused on revitalizing the downtown area for the last two decades. Following World War II, Palatine experienced rapid growth, but the last decade has seen only minimal increases to the population.
