Mayor David Uran says that each year, Crown Point experiences 200 new home starts. Crown Point, the seat of Lake County, is home to some 27,317 according to the 2010 census. Incorporated in 1868, Crown Point has been attracting more and more people to call the city home, with stellar schools, a charming downtown, affordable living options, low crime, cultural opportunities, and family events all year long. Plus, Crown Point is near to many amenities that make for a superb quality of life, such as the proximity to Chicago, Lake Michigan and the beaches, and access to transportation including highways and rail. Crown Point is also host each summer to the oldest county fair in the state of Indiana, the Lake County Fair, and it is also the second biggest county fair in the state.

Mayor David Uran says, “It’s a combination of everything we have going on here. The location is great to open the doors for people to come here to live. The amenities including the SportsPlex are a big draw. The schools are state and nationally recognized for excellence, the business community is great and all of these experiences combine with one another to showcase the net worth of our community.”
