Huntley is a rapidly-growing village in McHenry County, Illinois and Kane County, Illinois. In 2006, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated the village's population to be 20,047.

A consultant for the village has predicted that by 2020, Huntley will be home to 50,191 people and will max out at 62,560. In 2003 alone, the village gave out 1210 building permits.

Huntley is best known for Prime Outlets outlet mall and a Sun City retirement community, the largest in the Midwest. The old part of Huntley is also known for its public square which features a gazebo, as well as a full brick-paved street (Woodstock St.) and 50s-style diner, The Huntley Dairy Mart.

The village's slogan is "The Friendly Village With Country Charm."

Municipal Complex

The Village of Huntley, in mid-2006, recently completed a new Municipal Complex to serve the needs of the growing Village, as the former Village Hall in the center of town on Coral Street had become too cramped, out-dated, and disconnected from other Village buildings. A large building, the new Municipal Complex houses all functions of the Village including the Village Hall, Police Department, Public Works, and Board Room. The complex was designed with the growth of the community in mind, as it is able to serve the village up to a population of 50,000. Considerable surrounding land exists for future expansion. It is located at 10987 Main Street in Huntley, near the intersection with Ruth Road, across from the library, and just a half-mile due east of downtown Huntley.

The Village was able to finance the construction of the building without increasing the taxes of citizens or seeking a referendum. Much of the construction was financed by collecting already-set-in-place utility taxes over the years and wise saving.

Public Safety

Huntley Police Department

The Village is served by the 25-member [http://www.huntley.il.us/depts/police.asp Huntley Police Department] , which is responsible for ensuring the safety of people in the Village and upholding and enforcing the laws of the community. The police department has five sergeants, sixteen officers, two records clerks, and one administrative assistant, all under the direction of Police Chief John Perkins. Operations are run out of the new municipal complex at 10911 Main Street.

The police department handled over 8,000 calls for service in the year 2005, a number which continues to grow at a rate of 1,000 additional calls each year. As a result, the police department continues to plan for the future as the village's population grows.

The Police Department has built a solid partnership with the community and hosts a number of programs throughout the year which enhance the bond between citizens and the police department including National Night Out, Bike Rodeos, Safety Camp, Operation Traffic Watch, Walk and Talk, D.A.R.E. and the School Resource Officer, Project Childsafe, Bicycle Patrol, and crime prevention programs such as Neighborhood Watch.

Huntley Fire Protection District

The [http://www.huntleyfpd.org/intro.htm Huntley Fire Protection District] is a separate taxing body which handles fire protection and emergency rescue service for the Village of Huntley and surrounding communities including western portions of Lake in the Hills and Algonquin, surrounding unincorporated communities, and a nine-mile (14 km) stretch of Interstate 90. The district is convert|55|sqmi|km2 and contains 35,000 people, with a district population of 60,000 residents expected by 2010.

The Huntley Fire Protection District currently has 40 full-time firefighters/paramedics, as well as 30 part-time firefighters/paramedics. The Department is staffed by a Chief, Deputy Chief, Fire Marshal, Director of Training, three Captains, and nine Lieutenants. The entire department is under the direction of a 5-member elected Board of Trustees.

There are three stations serving the fire district: the headquarters on Coral Street in downtown Huntley, Station #2 on Reed Road in the far northeast part of the Village (near Lake in the Hills), and Station #3 on Regency Parkway in the southwest part of the Village, in close proximity to Del Webb's Sun City Huntley. A fourth station is planned for Square Barn Road in southwestern Algonquin.

Education

Consolidated School District 158

The village is served entirely by Consolidated School District 158. Originally headquartered in Huntley, the administration offices have since moved to a new campus in Algonquin.

The village used to be entirely served by an elementary school and a high school located in town, but the growing district has since discontinued use of those buildings, and has since built five elementary schools, two middle schools, and a high school on three different campuses districtwide.

Only one campus is within village limits. The Harmony Road Campus in the western part of the village contains Huntley High School and Leggee Elementary School. The other two campuses, which serve parts of Huntley are located in nearby Algonquin and Lake in the Hills.

Huntley Area Public Library

The [http://www.huntleylibrary.org Huntley Area Public Library] district serves all of Huntley as well as portions of Lake in the Hills and Algonquin. The library used to be housed in a very small 1,000 or convert|2000|sqft|m2|abbr=on. building at Algonquin Road and Church Street. As the area's population exploded in the 1990s and 2000s, new facilities were needed.

In 1999, the former building was closed and a new convert|15000|sqft|m2|abbr=on building constructed on Ruth Road, just north of East Main Street. The building was architecturally designed with both the rural character and fast-paced growth of the community in mind, as it features country-style architecture, yet is designed so that additions to the building can be made. Since then, the library has doubled the amount of its materials and services several times over, to serve the needs of the growing community.

Over 23,000 patrons within the Huntley Area Public Library District have library cards. Circulation figures for the district are currently over 468,000+ per year and the library's collection exceeds 100,000 pieces. This rapid growth rate and the need for more materials and space for programs has forced the district to start looking at plans to expand the current building. The library district has tried once unsuccessfully to get a referendum passed in 2005 to expand the building and its services. In September 2006, the library underwent a remodeling project to reorganize the collection, which resulted in the loss of the library's public meeting and program room. The library is currently holding programs outside of the library. The library board voted not to try for a referendum in 2007. The Friends of the Huntley Area Public Library have set up a fund through the McHenry County Foundation to help raise money for the library expansion. In February 2008 the board announced that it would add a Referendum question to the November 2008 ballot.

McHenry County College

The district's community college needs are served by McHenry County College, located in Crystal Lake, Illinois, about a 15 to 20 minute drive away.
