Celebrate Independence Day & Remember Why the Day is Special

Take pride in being an American. Celebrate our founding principles that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
And remember not just the beginning of the Declaration of Independence, but also its closing words:
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Traffic Safety is the Independence Day Emphasis

The Naperville Police Department plans to step up Independence Day traffic enforcement, focusing on both drunk and unbuckled drivers during the week of Jthe Fourth of July. The intensified enforcement effort will concentrate on late-night hours as statistics show a disproportionate number of traffic deaths occur late at night and involve a drunk driver and/or unbuckled motorist. The crackdown is part of the statewide, Independence Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticker” effort.
Naperville Police, the Illinois State Police and hundreds of police and sheriff’s departments throughout Illinois are participating in this statewide enforcement effort that runs through July 5.
To avoid a potential crash or drunk driving arrest, designate a sober driver and do not friends or family members drive drunk. Other important tips include:
  • Plan ahead. Designate a sober driver before going out and give that person your keys;
  • If you are drunk, call a taxi, use mass transit or call a sober friend or family member to get you home safely;
  • Promptly report drunk drivers you see on the roadways to law enforcement by pulling over and dialing 911;
  • Make sure everyone in your vehicle wears their seat belt. It is your best defense against a drunk driver.

  • Confederation Names 2 New Associate Directors

    At our June Board meeting we welcomed Kerry Malm and Marcia Straub to our Board as Associate Directors.
    NAHC Associate Directors join with our other Board members as vital parts of the Confederation, often taking the lead as our "liaisons" to other organizations and groups in the neighborhood. This allows us to be better informed and represent the needs of homeowners, helping us with our mission to the community.
    For more information about our Board, click here to see a full listing of our Board members. If you are interested in becoming a liaison for the Confederation, please contact our President, Bob Fischer.

    We are:
  • A knowledge resource, covering topics of interest to our members and their neighborhoods. We seek out and share information on issues and developments, events, association governance, and property management and maintenance.
  • An advocate for homeowners; voicing community concerns through Public Position statements, advisory groups, and liaison committees.
  • A stage where speakers address what is important to our member associations and Naperville area residents.
  • A conduit bringing government to the people. Our meetings create dialogue opportunities with community leaders.
  • A facilitator of educational, non-partisan forums on issues, referenda and candidates.


  • The Confederation at Work

    The Confederation received the Naperville League of Women Voters 2008 Rosemary Martin Democracy in Action Award for its ongoing commitment to involve Naperville residents in local government and create opportunities for education on public issues important to the quality of their lives.

    "The Confederation receives information from the City and meets regularly with City Staff to review those issues pertinent to all homeowners. Many concerns are solved quickly with the positive communication between the City and homeowners. It's a very constructive and motivated group."
    A. George Pradel, Mayor

    "For the Naperville Park District, the Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation is an important partner in our success. The NAHC has become an increasingly vital conduit to communicate with residents about our programs and events, and their committed efforts in helping us to reach our constituents is invaluable."
    Ray McGury, Executive Director, Naperville Park District

    "Serving in an at-large capacity can be very time consuming to understand the needs of 145,000 people and meet those needs. The salvation of being effective was listening to the (Naperville Area) Homeowners' Confederation, which was my constant source of information and fount of knowledge."
    Former City Council Member Gary von Behren as reported in the Naperville Sun 10/1/2008

    "The role NAHC plays in fostering meaningful communication between residents and decision-makers in government is crucial to our democratic process. It is a role you play well, and we commend you for that."
    Michèle D. Johnson, Former President, ECHO Board of Directors

    "Its our liaison to the City and it keeps us informed. We would not know about certain issues if it were not for the wealth of information disseminated to us by the Confederation."
    Marie Muller, Former Delegate, Maplebrook II
