Welcome to Lakewood


The Village of Lakewood was incorporated on July 10, 1933.  In 1993 the Village Board developed a vision statement which has become the basis for making decisions to preserve this way of life.  The statement reads, "Lakewood will remain a friendly community providing families with quality living in a natural setting", adopted as our mission statement.

Lakewood's long term vision is to be essentially a residential community with miles of bike paths connecting to a regional network.  New neighborhoods will be built utilizing natural terrain features.  Lakes and wetlands will continue to be key features in our community.
