Welcome to the Village of Machesney Park
On the grounds the original Machesney Airport, spirits now soar instead of bi-planes. The Village of Machesney Park is a community in the truest sense of the word. Here, neighbors say “hi” by name. Visitors find warm smiles and open arms. And residents share a sense of shared purpose and civic pride.
The Village government center, the Frank G. Bauer Municipal Hall, is at 300 Roosevelt Road, behind and beside the Machesney Towne Center. All municipal departments are located here along with Winnebago County Sheriffs, Machesney Park Division. Services include payment of parking fines, issuance of building permits and business licenses. Public hearings of Village commission and various boards and committees take place here. Residents and guests are welcome to attend!
The Village name “Machesney” comes from Fred Machesney, a barnstorming aviator and founder of the airfield. Today, his spirit of possibility and joy lives on!
