As Mayor, I welcome you to the City of Collinsville. Collinsville is a growing community, conveniently located at the heart of the populous Metro East area. The bluffs of the Mississippi River are an integral part of the Collinsville area with the Gateway Arch and downtown St. Louis on the horizon. This view provides a scenic panorama for the many businesses and residents of our community.
Residents enjoy the charming, small town atmosphere and rich traditions of Collinsville. New subdivisions, contemporary condominiums, and affordable housing build on these traditions, while demonstrating a commitment to progressive new ideas. Our unique and historic downtown offers one-of-a-kind shops and a genuine friendly atmosphere. Collinsville is located just ten interstate miles from St. Louis, Missouri. This gives Collinsville residents excellent accessibility to a wide array of employment opportunities as well as cultural and entertainment activities.
Collinsville residents benefit from other offerings, including a public library; an outdoor sports complex; water park; well-kept parks; excellent shopping; state-of-the-art schools; a low crime rate; and many civic and charitable organizations.
Business owners see Collinsville as one of the best locations in the region for operating a business. Five interstate highways surround the City making Collinsville easily accessible to other communities in the region and the nation.
Visitors will be delighted with the many attractions and interesting sites that Collinsville and the surrounding area has to offer. Thousands of visitors flock yearly to Cahokia Mounds State Historic and World Heritage site which is located in Collinsville. Fairmount Park, a well known thoroughbred race track, is also a popular attraction for tourists and area residents.
If you visit Collinsville, I am sure you will agree that Collinsville is an excellent location to live, work, and raise a family!
