A note about the Forest View neighborhood

Less than 30 households on Forest View Lane — which is located south of 186th Street, and west of Stony Island Avenue/Volbrecht Road — vote in many different races than most of Lansing. Though village, library, and park district representation is the same, residents in this area find themselves in Brookwood School District 167, Bloom Township High School District 206, and Prairie State Community College District 515.

More information about candidates in these races can be found on the Cook County Clerk’s website.
