Willow Springs is a village in Cook and DuPage Counties in Illinois. The village was founded in 1892 and currently has a population estimated at 5,500. Willow Springs has an area of 4.01 square miles of land and 0.106 square miles of water. The village is located 17 miles Southwest of the Chicago Loop. Much of what is now Willow Springs is known to geologists as Mt. Forest Island, a large upland moraine left by ice age glaciers thousands of years ago. Archaeological evidence indicates that Native Americans hunted and buried their dead here. Canal boats later stopped at the area's springs, hence the town's name. Most residents of Willow Springs are of Polish, Italian, German, or Irish descent. Willow Springs has experienced an expanding housing market since the 1970s and has grown into the prosperous village it is today.

How do I schedule inspections?
When you pick up your permit you will be given all necessary inspection cards for the job. Do not loose these cards; they are proof that you have paid for the inspections. When you know when you will be ready for an inspection, complete the card and drop it off or mail it in to the Village Hall. If you drop the inspection card off after normal business hours, you may use the drop box outside. For scheduling purposes, please give 48 hours notice for inspections.
Please ensure that the work being inspected is completed by the scheduled inspection time. There is a re-inspection fee of $75. If you need to reschedule an inspection, please call (708) 467-3700 as soon as possible.
